More Information About the Services We Provide

Integrative Care

For pets with disabilities, chronic illness, cancer, injury, or seniors with mobility issues.

Dr. Turner helps dogs and cats with chronic illnesses or injury with a combination of conventional Western and holistic options such as acupuncture, herbal medicine, nutrition, or laser therapy.

She sees her patients regularly and makes changes as needed to keep them comfortable and mobile so they can live longer and better lives.

Examples of pets she helps include those with any chronic disease including cancer, kidney or liver disease, IBD, allergies, anxiety, seizures, arthritis pain, lameness, ACL tears, back pain/IVDD, neurologic disease, paralysis, geriatric weakness, weight issues, endocrine issues and many more . Many of our patients have a combination of health issues that are not adequately addressed with Western medicine alone and benefit from the addition of integrative options.

Canine Physical Rehabilitation

 

  Dr. Turner is certified in Canine Rehabilitation (CCRT) and combines acupuncture with rehabilitation in most patients. Rehabilitation modalities help pets gain stability, strength, and manage pain. Heal is the only vet clinic in the area with a state-of-the art AquaPaws Underwater Treadmill. Using the underwater treadmill  has helped  many dogs recover from injury and even paralysis. Senior dogs improve strength and have less pain and stiffness from arthritis after exercising in a controlled, warm-water environment.

  • Underwater Treadmill: Water therapy provides warmth, buoyancy ,and resistance to help dogs recover from injury in a controlled environment. It is also a great tool for pain management for any dog with chronic pain. Read more about the Aquapaws Underwater Treadmill  here.
  • Therapeutic ExerciseTherapeutic exercises improves strength, flexibility, balance, and coordination and slows progression of disease. Our goal is to improve mobility and quality of life.
  • Electro-stimulation: decreases pain and inflammation by providing a low level electrical current which disrupts the normal pain perception pathways.
  • Pulsed Magnetic Electric Field (PEMF):  speeds healing by improving blood flow to injured areas, reduces inflammation and provide pain relief. PEMF therapy can be delivered via mats, jackets and even portable loops and is a highly effective, non-invasive, non-pharmaceutical option for pain management.
  • Laser Therapy:  Laser therapy is the use of light energy to stimulate tissue repair and provide pain management. Laser therapy may alleviate muscle and joint discomfort, relieve symptoms of arthritis, relax muscle spasms and increase blood flow to an area, helping injuries to heal.
  • Manual Therapy: Manual therapy includes a variety of techniques, including passive range of motion, stretching, and joint mobilization. Manual therapies can be of great benefit to joints, allowing for greater movement and can also provide significant pain relief.

Palliative Care and Hospice

Dr. Turner will teach you to be the most knowledgeable caretaker you can be and your pet’s best advocate.

If you are considering palliative care or hospice care for your loved companion, you want to know whether your pet is in pain and how to maintain a high quality of life.

Dr. Turner can help you know  what to look for and how to prevent or address problems on your own to avoid stressful travel or emergency vet visits. Whether or not you have chosen to pursue chemotherapy, surgery, or intensive conventional therapy for your pet, the addition of palliative or hospice care supports the patient and family through ups and downs, and maintains appetite, mobility, and energy.

 Please contact us as soon as your pet is diagnosed so we can help you with strategies to minimize stress, pain, and discomfort and improve quality of life. We don’t want HANK (Hurting And Nobody Knows)!

  • Integrative Care for Palliative and Hospice patients:  Families enrolled in our Hospice and Palliative service start with an in-clinic consultation. You will meet with Dr. Turner to discuss your goals and beliefs, and create a care plan for your companion to keep them mobile, comfortable, eating, and free from side effects. Comfort care kits are available. Text and email support is always available. Our Hospice and Palliative Care families may feel overwhelmed at first, but they end up confident and empowered caretakers and decision-makers.
  • Quality of Life Assessment:  Get your questions answered and help you feel confident about end of life care and decisions for your pet.

Success Stories
Huey

Huey

Chronic Arthritis and ACL tear

Huey Louis is a happy guy despite chronic arthritis in his back and multiple joints. He visits us for acupuncture, rehab, laser, and massage therapy to help his aches and pains. He loves the PEMF bed he uses for at-home therapy between visits. He takes herbal medicine and eats a nutritious and balanced homemade diet full of fresh foods and vegetables. Huey is doing great despite his arthritis. He has a great attitude and he loves to visit Heal.
Jingo

Jingo

Recovery from paralysis

Jingo was a miracle dog who recovered from paralysis in 2014 and continues to thrive today. He was sent home from UC Davis after they decided he was not a candidate for surgery. Still unable to walk, his prognosis for recovery was guarded. He started having acupuncture treatments and after just a few sessions, he started walking again. Jingo continues to visit for acupuncture, massage, and exercise therapy sessions to help maintain his strength and mobility.
Bunny

Bunny

End of Life Care

Bunny started coming to see us after conventional medicine failed to provide her with improvement in her mobility.  Her Mom was concerned her decline might mean the end was near.  When she started coming to Heal, she could only take a few steps before collapsing on to her head or falling over because of hind end weakness. But after several patient weeks of acupuncture, food therapy, and herbal medicine, she was running again. Bunny lived another happy and mobile two years with an amazing quality of life before she faced some other serious medical issues. We miss her sweet little pug face and challenging wiggly acupuncture sessions.
