Blue Run Veterinary Wellness Services is a mobile veterinary practice. Our appointments are held in the comfort of your own home because we know how difficult it can be to take your pet to the vet hospital especially when they are struggling with pain or an illness. By coming to you, there is less stress and worry for both you and your pet.
Pain Relief Management
If your pet is experiencing chronic pain, then pain relief management may be right for you. We can help your pet live their most comfortable life. Our in-home consultations begin by taking a full and detailed medical history; we discuss any recent changes in behavior and appetite and perform a thorough physical examination assessing gait and mobility when possible. Once your pet has been evaluated, we create a unique pain management plan for your pet.
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 plants and their extracts can improve health, increase energy, promote healing, modify symptoms, improve quality and longevity of our pets lives. Herbal supplements are offered to maintain health and well-being or to support, enhance or stimulate the normal body’s processes. The herbal formulas are sourced from companies committed to environmentally sustainable practices and organic farming methods in the United States.
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 can be tailored to your pet based on their age, activity level, internal and external environments and overall health status.
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.
End of Life Care
We understand the importance of saying goodbye in the comfort of your own home, which is why we provide in-home euthanasia as a service. Often the changes that occur at the end of life are subtle and involve changes in behavior more than overt signs of pain. It is helpful to keep a journal to record changes in your pet’s behaviors. Even if you find it hard to evaluate pain and suffering in your pet, we can help by providing you with signs to closely monitor.
