Pulse Treatment and Natural Pet Care

As a pet owner, it is ultimately your responsibility to ensure that your pet gets the best care possible for his or her overall health and wellness. Our holistic veterinarian provides natural care for pets in Rolla and the surrounding communities. Contact South Side Animal Clinic and schedule an appointment with Dr. Wodohodsky.


What is Natural Pet Care?

Essentially, natural pet care refers to a comprehensive health and wellness program implemented and managed by a licensed veterinarian at an animal clinic. The main objective of natural pet care is to provide safety and comfort to your pets by providing them with the opportunity to live as closely as possible to their natural environment.

In terms of dog care, for example, it would be ideal to serve your dog a diet that can provide it with the nutrition it needs. Originally, canines are active hunters seeking out their food. Nowadays, however, dogs are mostly house pets served with yummy treats throughout the day. Still, this does not necessarily mean that they can afford to lose out on certain proteins and other nutrients just because they are staying at home.

It is still in their natural genetic makeup to need these foods that can support their grown and development. What they need now is a good balance of a healthy diet that can prevent chronic and acute diseases. Our animal hospital provides natural pet care services and we can provide you with better guidance on how to best feed your pets.

Faster Healing and Recovery

Holistic pet care doesn’t just focus on what can be done to give them a quality of life that is as natural and comfortable as possible, it also takes into account the wellness of the animal. This is especially true when they are suffering from an injury or are working to recover from an injury. Modern medicine and technology, like shock wave therapy, are also used in natural pet care.

In some instances, your pet’s veterinarian might recommend the use of PEMF, for example. Otherwise known as Pulse Electro Magnetic Field, PEMF is used to improve the healing process as well as aid in pain management for your pet. There is also the Assisi Loop, which is a type of pulse treatment that uses a band over a specific area in need of treatment.  We have the tools and training needed to ensure your pet has a speedy recovery.
