This modality has its base in traditional Chinese, Japanese and Indian medicine. It involves the insertion of needles, application of pressure, or heat and/or cold application to documented points on the body of an animal. These points are part of chains of points called meridians.


Homeopathy is a medical system based on the principle of 'like cures like'. Homeopathic medicines are prepared from the original substance (mineral, plant or animal origin) by a process called potentisation. This involves serial dilutions and succussion (vigorous shaking). Evidence from experiments, both human and animal, demonstrates that substances which show a destructive effect at high concentrations may have a stimulatory effect at low concentrations. 


Homotoxicology is a treatment regime that uses potentised remedies to treat specific disease processes. It is a simplified branch of homeopathy and uses combinations of different homeopathic preparations.


Veterinary chiropractic practitioners principally focus on the function of the spine and spinal nerves. Examination of the animal involves a number of tests, the most common of these being manual palpation of the mobility of the individual segments of the spine and the tension or weakness of the local spinal muscles. Treatment is usually via relatively gentle mechanical impulses which act to return the spinal mobility and local spinal muscles to normal function.


Nutraceuticals are prescribed in veterinary medicine as adjuncts to other treatments in a wide range of disease states including stress, organ disease, blood derangements, cancer, and to augment healing from injury, surgery or trauma. They are generally taken orally but can also be used topically or by injection. They include but are not restricted to, vitamins, enzymes, electrolytes, herbs, co-factors and amino acids. Nutraceuticals are common additives to commercial dry foods.
