Fair Isle Animal Clinic offers Companion Laser Therapy. Laser therapy provides a non-invasive, pain-free, surgery-free, drug-free treatment which is used to treat a variety of conditions including: arthritis, general and post -surgery pain, skin conditions (hot spots, infections etc.), ear infections, and wounds.
Laser therapy stimulates the body to heal from within. Non-thermal photons of light are administered to the body and absorbed by the injured cells. The cells respond with a higher rate of metabolism. The result is a relief from pain, increased circulation, reduced inflammation, and an acceleration of the healing process. Companion Laser Therapy
A few words on acupuncture from Dr. Nell Coffman:
I first became interested in traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine in the late 1980’s. It was my own experience with acupuncture for planar fasciitis in my heel and elbow tendonitis that first sparked my interest.
I think it’s fascinating that so many of the speakers at Veterinary Acupuncture meetings are Neurologists or Internists. They all have stories of being extremely skeptical about acupuncture and herbology, but saw such amazing results in both animals and themselves or their families that they became certified and now lecture worldwide.
I took the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society (IVAS) acupuncture course in San Diego in 1990 – 1991. I was a teaching assistant at the Portland IVAS certification course in 2010 – 2011. I have attended advanced acupuncture classes at the Chi Institute in Florida and have taken online herbology.
I feel that the future of medicine- both animals and human, will be an integrated approach using both Western medicine and traditional Chinese medicine.
