Here at Northern Oaks Bird & Animal Hospital, we are proud to offer several alternatives and complementary therapies.

Class IV Therapeutic Cold Laser

We are always learning new and better ways to treat our patients. We also are dedicated to using the latest veterinary technologies. One way we do this is by providing cold laser therapy for our patients.

Cold laser therapy is a state-of-the-art alternative therapy to assist with pain and healing. It can be used after surgeries to help increase blood flow to local areas, improving healing. For this same reason, it is also helpful for wound healing. Cold laser therapy can also be used for chronic pain, helping to increase blood flow to those areas. We have also seen great success in using this therapy for patients with arthritis.


Many people are starting to explore forms of medicine, other than traditional medicine. This is also true in veterinary medicine. Northern Oaks Bird & Animal Hospital is excited to be able to offer holistic and traditional medicine to help our patients heal.

Acupuncture has been shown to help pets with pain, osteoarthritis, vomiting, cancer pain, endocrine disorders, and much more. Discuss your pet’s symptoms with your veterinarian to determine whether acupuncture may be beneficial for your pet. Adding this therapy will assist in keeping your pet as active and healthy as possible. Many owners worry that their pets won’t tolerate acupuncture. However, the opposite is true. Many quickly learn to love it.
