The doctors of Corvallis Cat Care combine the best of western and alternative medicine to provide comprehensive care. Alternative therapies and western treatments compliment each other and can be very helpful when used together. The combination is often called “Integrative Medicine.” Traditional diagnostic tools, such as X-rays and analyses of blood, stool, and urine, are used to help guide our doctors. Hair analysis is an alternative diagnostic tool that helps the doctors identify physiological imbalances in the body. Additional options include laser therapy to aid in healing and reduce inflammation, as well as acupuncture and Chinese herbs. Doctor Carter is specially trained and licensed to provide acupuncture as a treatment for numerous conditions, along with Chinese herbal therapy. In some cases, physical therapy and cranial sacral therapy may be recommended as well as referral to other specialists like internists, dermatologists, or specialty surgeons. Dianne Morley is a registered physical therapist who provides treatment for our patients at our clinic on a monthly basis.
