Many people are starting to explore other forms of medicine, other than traditional medicine. This is also true in veterinary medicine. Here at Armory Animal Hospital, we are 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. It helps pets even more than you and I might realize so be sure to discuss your pet’s case with your veterinarian to see whether or not acupuncture might be helpful! You may want to consider adding acupuncture to keep 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!
Exams And Consultations
Exams And Consultations
Regular exams and checkups are critical for you pet’s well-being. Based on the individual pet we may recommend either annual or semi-annual exams to ensure their optimum health.
Seeing your pets for regular checkups allows our veterinarians to identify changes promptly and therefore address a problem sooner rather than later. As they age we also recommend obtaining baseline laboratory data as another way to identify a problem as early as possible.
Laser energy is absorbed by the individual cells stimulating them to produce proteins necessary for tissue repair as well as endorphins that help in pain relief. Laser therapy is highly recommended for surgical sites and injury locations. Conditions and injuries that can benefit from therapeutic laser treatment include arthritis, soft tisssue injury, trigger points, degenerative myelopathy and for post-surgical recovery and rehabilitation.
If you have any questions or concerns about how laser therapy can benefit your pet, please contact us today.
At Armory Animal Hospital, we are happy to offer microchipping. Every year, thousands and thousands of pets go missing. Not knowing where your pet is or how to bring them back can be a helpless, hopeless feeling. It’s a tragedy that happens all too often.
But there is a simple, safe, and effective way to ensure your pet’s safety and retrieval should they ever become lost. Microchipping is a standard procedure that implants a tiny chip underneath your pet’s fur. It is a painless and relatively fast procedure, and is completely safe.
This microchip is registered with your pet’s vital information, and can be scanned by any veterinarian or animal shelter so that they can return your pet directly to you.
Save yourself the heartache and stress of a lost pet. Microchips bring pets home.
Pet insurance pays, partly or in total, for veterinary treatment of the insured person’s ill or injured pet. As veterinary medicine is increasingly employing increasingly expensive cutting edge medical techniques and drugs, and owners have higher expectations for their pets’ health care, the market for pet insurance has increased.
Pet insurance companies are beginning to offer the pet owner more of an ability to customize their coverage by allowing them to choose their own level of deductible or co-insurance. This allows the pet owner to control their monthly premium and choose the level of coverage that suits them the best.
Some of the differences in insurance coverage are:
- Whether congenital and hereditary conditions (like hip dysplasia, heart defects, eye cataracts or diabetes) are covered;
- How the reimbursement is calculated (based on the actual vet bill, a benefit schedule or usual and customary rates);
- Whether the deductible is on a per-incident or an annual basis;
- Whether there are any limits or caps applied (per incident, per year, age or over the pet’s lifetime); and
- Whether there is an annual contract that determines anything diagnosed in the previous year of coverage is considered pre-existing the next year.

We believe the best way to promote overall health is through preventative care. Regular checkups allow us to establish a baseline of your pet’s health and make us aware of any changes that may indicate future problems.
We highly recommend bringing your pet in for regular exams. Often times health problems that go undetected can become more serious issues when left untreated, so checkups are important even when your pet appears healthy.
Give us a call today to learn more about preventative medicine and how we can care for your pet.
