Veterinary Chiropractic Tool

    What is Veterinary Orthopedic Manipulation (VOM)?  VOM is a healing technique designed to repair and re-establish a healthy nervous system for animals. It uses a hand held device called an “activator” used by many human chiropractors on their patients. The activator used for VOM restores the body’s functions by reducing “subluxations” as in typical chiropractic care. Subluxations are misalignments of the bones. When this is present there is often a corresponding impingement of the nerves that situated in that area.

    When placed and “fired” over the spinous processes or the animal’s spine and other bones, the activator locates the part of the body that has fallen out of communication. By “firing” the activator, it reestablishes neural communication and therefore inducing healing.  As this process is repeated several times it releases endorphins thereby causing the animals to relax and enjoy the procedure. In addition to passing over the spinous processes the activator is also “fired” all the way down the spine on either side. This “opens up” any blockages in the nerve bundles located on either side of the spine. This allows better communication and function of the internal organs.
 
    On average, an improvement in the pet’s behavior is noticeable within one week after treatment. Most clients notice within a day or two of treatment that their pet is more energetic, moving better and acting more like themselves.
This can be performed by the following veterinarians at our practices:

   We are offering a free initial chiropractic treatment ($75 value) for your pet until 5/31/17.  

We recommend treating all young healthy animals at least three times (once a week for three weeks) and then yearly.For animals with any muscular skeletal problems we recommend treating for minimally once a week for three weeks. Skip a week then another treatment. Skip two weeks then another treatment. Follow up treatments every 3 to 6 months as needed.

   VOM was developed by Dr. William Inman, DVM in 1982. Dr. Inman is a veterinary neurologist who performed many surgeries on animals with severe spinal disease before developing the VOM technology.

November – the Official Love a Senior Shelter Pet Month

 

The Official Love a Senior Pet MonthDVM Hospitals

November 2014 

Volume VIII

From the Desk of Doctor Timi Lee 

at Tribeca Soho Animal Hospital

This month is the official Adopt a Senior Pet Month.

It’s an amazing opportunity to bring a much in need and adoring older pet into your loving home.

There are so many great reasons to adopt mature dogs and cats!

They are fully grown so you know how big or small they will stay to better fit into your apartment and building requirements.

Their personalities are already developed, so you will know if they are high strung, quiet and shy, or bold. This will allow better fit with your lifestyle and routine.

Most of these pets are already house-broken, which means you will get to skip the hassle of house training and the possible ruining of furniture.

Mature pets can also settle into your family’s life much faster than a puppy or younger animal, making it easy for everyone involved. Since these pets already have a good immunity, there should be less spread of infectious diseases and therefore fewer trips to the veterinarian.

Senior citizens and senior pets can make a great combination! They both can lead a less active way of life so it can be a win-win situation.

Wouldn’t it be nice to cuddle up with your new mature dog or cat this winter?!?!

The best reason to adopt a senior pet is…. You’re saving a life! What could possibly feel better than that?

Go to your local shelter and adopt a Senior Dog or Cat today!
