Because we love our pets as much as you do!
At Blue Run Veterinary Wellness Services our aim is to use a holistic approach to give your pet the best quality of life by integrating traditional western medicine alongside complementary and alternative medicine. By using a combined approach we can reduce signs of acute and chronic pain and discomfort as well as help restore some of the physiological function of various organ systems throughout the life of your pet. With our approach we create a partnership between pet owner and the veterinarian to achieve the optimal wellness for your pet. All of our services are offered in the comfort of your own home.
My name is Dr. Julie Oswald and I want to personally thank you for taking the time out of your day to be more proactive about your pet’s health. Just like caring for your own nutrition, being proactive about your pet’s health will positively impact their quality of living and may increase the length of time you are able to spend with them. I believe that our pets deserve nutritious food, exercise, and assistance when they are experiencing pain or discomfort—just like humans do. I decided to start this service because I am passionate about quality animal care.
Pain is the most common indication for acupuncture. Usually this is pain associated with arthritis; however other types of pain that may respond include muscle strains, pain secondary to disc disease, cancer pain and more. Functional conditions such as constipation and cystitis in cats and irritable bowel type problems in dogs may also respond. There are a variety of dermatological conditions that also may benefit from acupuncture.
Herbal Medicine & Nutrition
Our pets have individual nutritional needs beyond what their regular diet can provide. The relationship between food and a healthy body are more important now than ever before. Healthy eating is essential for both preventing illness and recovering from disease. Nutrition and herbs can be tailored to your pet based on their age, activity level, internal and external environments and overall health status.
End of Life Care
Veterinary hospice is dedicated to maintaining comfort and the best quality of life for the geriatric or terminally ill pet until the family elects for a peaceful death through euthanasia or natural death. With this type of care, the focus is on the comfort of your pet rather than a cure for their disease. This type of care is often appropriate for incurable illness or if further investigations or treatments have been declined by the pet owner in the place of comfort based care.
