Alternative Remedies

Chinese Herbs

Dr. Cobb has many years experience utilizing Chinese herbs to help pets with pain-relief, allergies, organ problems and infections. Though herbs can be used based on conventional diagnoses, Dr. Cobb prefers using traditional Chinese methods.  Many Chinese patterns of illness can create the same conventional diagnosis. Different herbs work best for each of these patterns.

Homotoxicology

This modality combines homeopathic remedies to eliminate toxins from the body. They help pets with allergies, organ disease, and infections. The remedies are close to tasteless so they are easily administered to finicky patients. Homeopathy is currently under great scrutiny by the conventional community.

Nutraceuticals

These are nutritional components that aid in healing. Many are aimed at regulating the immune system or speeding the healing process.  Conventional practitioners are beginning to utilize some nutraceuticals. A common example is omega three fatty acids used for certain types of kidney disease.

Dr. Cobb prefers combining the best of both worlds, selecting alternative and/or conventional treatments that best meet the needs of each individual.
