Integrated Medicine

Every animal heals differently. Additional therapies such as acupuncture, laser therapy, and chiropractic adjustments may be an ideal complement to traditional medicine for your pet. Newtown Vet’s integrated approach to medicine allows our veterinarians to combine progressive western veterinary care with alternative, holistic therapies.


Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese practice that can heal and prevent illnesses. Using very fine, pliable needles placed at specific points on the body, acupuncture elicits a physiological response that relieves pain and promotes healing.

In addition to pain management, acupuncture may help resolve gastrointestinal issues, strengthen the immune system, and reduce inflammation. It has also been used in the treatment of neurological disorders, muscle soreness and weaknesses, age-related health issues, chronic disorders and diseases, and even behavior problems such as noise phobias and anxiety.


Like acupuncture, chiropractic is an ancient healing technique from which almost any pet can benefit. Chiropractic adjustments correct alignment, relieve muscle strain, and promote healthy spinal function.

Laser Therapy

Low-level laser therapy, or cold laser therapy, is a treatment used to encourage the function of cells. Laser therapy can be beneficial in many ways, but it’s especially useful in treating incision sites, scarring, arthritis, joint disorders, and short-term pain relief.

"My 5 year old beagle, Piper, was hit by a car. After two surgeries, I wasn’t sure if she would ever walk normally again. Dr. Collazo immediately gained Piper’s friendship and my trust. She has state of the art laser treatments to aid in the repair of muscle, acupuncture treatments to ease pain and a wide array of therapeutic tools to create a fun and inviting space for animals to strengthen muscles and regain confidence." - Andrea H.
