For many pet parents, having the option to choose alternative therapy for their animal family member is a huge benefit. At Makawao Veterinary Clinic, we’re pleased to offer a number of these integrative treatment options.


Acupuncture operates under the concept that when the body’s natural energy source becomes disrupted, sickness and pain can result. Special acupuncture needles are inserted into specific points along the body to promote healing and reduce pain. Acupuncture can be used to treat anything from arthritis to respiratory problems and just about everything in between. It can also be used to boost the immune system and support better balance.

Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic care in pets is similar to what’s practiced on human patients. A chiropractic adjustment can correct the musculoskeletal system when it has become misaligned. When even one vertebra is out of place, it can cause a host of other problems in the surrounding muscles and ligaments. Chiropractic care can relieve pain, improve mobility, and enhance overall wellbeing.

Laser Therapy

Laser therapy uses the power of light to naturally alleviate pain, reduce inflammation, and speed healing. We can use laser therapy to address a wide range of conditions, from chronic pain to dental disease. Laser therapy is quick, painless, and proven to be effective. It also does not require the use of medication or surgery, which makes it ideal for sick or older pets.

Chinese Herbal Medicine

Chinese herbal medicine has been used for centuries to treat chronic medical conditions and has been proven effective in relieving pain, improving and restoring proper organ function, and strengthening the immune system. The goal of herbal therapy is to return the body to a state of balance and wellness without the risk of side effects that traditional pharmaceuticals can present.

Homeopathic Medicine

Homeopathic medicine is based on the theory that the same substances which cause illness in the body, when used properly, can also counteract those same symptoms. Homeopathy uses natural ingredients to help strengthen the body’s ability to fight off illness and restore a sense of balance. It is especially useful in managing chronic medical conditions to improve the patient’s overall quality of life.

The holistic medicine options at Makawao Veterinary Clinic are typically used in conjunction with our traditional Western medical services, however, they can also be used as standalone treatments in certain cases. Your pet’s individual situation will be carefully considered when we are developing our treatment recommendation.
