Acupuncture and Natural Remedies
At Franktown Animal Clinic we merge the most advanced Western medical technologies with ancient Eastern therapies, many of which have been around for thousands of years. Acupuncture and herbal medicine, in particular, can treat a variety of conditions including chronic pain, lameness, allergies, arthritis, skin disease and more.
Three of our doctors (Swieckowski, Vanderholm and Menning) are certified through the Medical Acupuncture for Veterinarians program at Colorado State University. Dr. Vanderholm was an instructor of the course for 18 years and is also certified through the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society.
In our pharmacology suite we carry a full range of natural and herbal medicines in addition to standard pharmaceuticals.
We are also proud to now offer Chiropractic care to our patients! At Franktown Animal Clinic, we believe chiropractic care is an important component in keeping animals sound and happy. Chiropractic medicine treats the nervous system by checking the soundness of the body’s infrastructure.
