Acupuncture, spinal adjustments, herbal medicines, and more!
Acupuncture

Small companion animals such as cats, dogs and exotic animals are candidates for acupuncture treatment. Acupuncture is the 2,300 year old art and science of using small needles inserted into specific body points to effect healing changes.

Biopuncture

Biopuncture is a therapeutic liquid injection treatment method that uses homeopathic products at low doses. The injections are given into the skin, muscles or the acupuncture neurological treatment points of traditional Chinese veterinary medicine.

Spinal Adjustments

Dr. Scerba completed the Healing Oasis Veterinary Spinal Manipulative Therapy 226 hour course in August 2007 and is now treating patients. Only one other veterinarian in New York is certified (she is one of the instructors).

Laser Therapy

In January 2012 Dr. Scerba added cold laser therapy to the array of holistic pet care treatments she offers to owners of companion animals. Her careful investigation of treatment effectiveness and subsequent training regarding FDA approved uses of Class 3 lasers for pain management are the basis for her decision to add a new class of treatment to her practice.

Herbal Medicines

Small companion animals such as cats and dogs as well as exotic animals may be treated safely and effectively with the correct herbal medications. Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine is a 3,600 year old Traditional Chinese Medical art and science of using either single herbs or, more commonly, well-researched herbal formulas to act as both nutrients and drugs in the patient's body.

Nutrition

Most companion animal caretakers have been educated to believe that a highly-processed cereal product called “pet food” is adequate food for their beloved animals. The question is, if we elect to begin either feeding fresh, wholesome foods to our companion animals or adding such foods to their current diet, how do we choose what is correct for them?

Tui Na

Tui Na or An Mo Tui Na is the Traditional Chinese Medicine bodywork or manual therapy system. “Tui Na” actually means “push/pull-lift” and refers to two of the primary techniques in this complex system. Tui Na is comprehensive and includes modalities such as massage, acupressure, physical therapy and osseous manipulation.
