Dr. Elliot uses complementary modalities to treat the diverse array of problems that animals that come to her have. She also uses conventional medicine when indicated. She will evaluate each case on its own. She will then discuss all the possible treatment options with owners so they can make the best choice for their pets.
She utilizes Veterinary Orthopedic Manipulation (VOM) for many animals with muscular-skeletal problems and other chronic diseases such as constipation, bladder issues, etc. She also highly recommends VOM for you her younger and healthy animals as regular regimes for preventive medicine in healthy animals. Please refer to the individual section on VOM for an expanded explanation and examples of successful cases treated with VOM.
She uses Low Level (Cold) Laser (LLLT) to treat many muscular-skeletal problems as well as many acute and chronic diseases (diabetes, asthma, allergies, endocrine disorders, etc.) and many behavioral problems such as canine geriatric syndrome, fears and anxiety, and much more. Please refer to the individual section on LLLT for expanded explanations and examples of successful cases treated with LLLT.
She uses homeopathic remedies to treat many acute and chronic conditions before reaching for conventional medicines. A definitive diagnosis is not always needed to use homeopathic treatment. A full diagnostic assessment of every patient is not always required, although the more information, the better. Homeopathic remedies are very useful to support different organs of the body when under the attack of a disease (kidney, liver, heart, lungs, etc.).
She also uses homeopathic treatment for animals with cancer. She has found that using homeopathy, even without chemotherapy and/or radiation, can provide the animal with energy, stimulate appetite and have the animal live with cancer longer than the expected prognosis and, in some cases, put cancer into remission for many months to years, without any negative side effects.
Dr. Elliot also successfully treats a variety of behavioral issues (fears, phobias, fear of thunderstorms, house soiling, incontinence, etc.), as well as pets with acute problems (trauma, vaccine reaction, hives, constipation, cystitis, etc.). Homeopathy and Low Level (cold) Laser can both be used to successfully address these issues.
Dr. Elliot will discuss vaccine protocols for your pet by taking into account the animal’s age and lifestyle. She will evaluate which vaccines are needed and which can be stopped. She usually recommends doing “titers” (a blood test that measures the animal’s antibody level) to evaluate the need for vaccines
(Distemper/Parvo and Rabies). If the titers are adequate it means the animal has adequate protection and does not need that vaccination that year.
She appeared on CBS news discussing heartworm medications and their effectiveness. http://newyork.cbslocal.com/2011/06/13/pets-and-heartworm-medication/
