Additional modalities we recommend
Including acupuncture, ultrasound and K Laser therapy
We have an excellent working arrangement with a qualified veterinary physiotherapist who works within a unit fully equipped with hydrotherapy (swim and treadmill). Their website is https://vetrehabni.co.uk/ and for many of our patients a referral for physiotherapy can make a fantastic difference.
This new treatment is a powerful additional tool. Made famous by sports starts like Rafal Nadal using it, it has now become main-stream and used widely in the National Health (for human patients of course). We use K-laser on a daily basis for many conditions, from osteoarthritis to post-op wound management.
Hydrotherapy has many benefits including improvement in proprioception (balance and sensory awareness), increased joint range of movement, decreased pain perception, improvement in muscle strength and tone and an overall increase in the speed of recovery from injury or trauma. Hydrotherapy isn't just about going for a swim. It should be properly controlled and tailored to each individual patient. We can organise a referral to highly qualified hydrotherapy team, if it could be a suitable therapy for your pet.
Regenerative medicine is the new buzzword in latest state-of-the-art therapy for difficult-to-manage cases.
We are excited to be able to offer Stem Cell Therapy and Platelet-Rich-Plasma treatments at Cedarmount.
Regenerative medicine is becoming widely accepted in human and veterinary medicine. More and more scientific studies are demonstrating the effectiveness of these treatments. Regenerative medicine uses the body's own cells to provide natural, and long-lasting benefits. There are a wide variety of potential uses.

Blood Spinning / Platelet Rich Plasma
This novel treatment again hit the headlines through professional sportsmen and women using it. We now offer Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment using the RegenVet system, on a one-sedation basis. We can discuss the merits on a case-by-case basis.
Stem Cell Therapy
This therapy promises great things, and some of these great things are now available to our patients. Using the RegenVet system we can collect Bone Marrow Derived Stem Cells and treat the affected area under a single anaesthetic. This system allows combination of PRP and Stem cells to provide long lasting natural anti-inflammatory benefits. Adipose-derived stem cell therapy can also be used (please note this combination requires 2 procedures, approximately 2 weeks apart).
