Prickly Pear Holistic Veterinary Care offers mobile, holistic veterinary care in the Greater Tucson area. They specialize in acupuncture, herbal medicine, chiropractic therapy and Reiki for all animals including dogs, cats and horses.
“Regular acupuncture treatments and chiropractic care are safe and can be effective treatment options when performed by a veterinarian who has received advanced training,” says Dr. Lauren Genow, owner and veterinarian at Prickly Pear. Both modalities can address conditions related to many systems of the body, including musculoskeletal—arthritis, back pain, paresis/paralysis, gait abnormalities; neurological—seizures, behavioral problems; gastrointestinal—gastric ulcers, chronic diarrhea; and immunoregulation—allergies, recurring illnesses.
Herbal medicine and Reiki are often used in conjunction with acupuncture and chiropractic treatments to boost results by providing an integrative treatment plan specific to the animal’s needs.
