Providing optimal health and enrichment towards the end of life.


Senior Pet Care

The goal of Haven's senior wellness program is to bridge the gap between routine veterinary care and the end of life. We consider all dogs and cats 7 years of age or older to be seniors and recommend twice yearly examinations for early detection of disease and to optimize health. Dr. Hill provides a customized senior care plan based on a thorough history, comprehensive physical examination and diagnostic bloodwork.

Services provided in the comfort of your home:

  • Semi annual examinations
  • Full service laboratory for senior bloodwork, cytology, urinalysis and heart worm/tick disease detection.
  • Treatment on common issues: gastrointestinal problems (vomiting/diarrhea), skin or ear issues, urinary issues, etc.
  • Management of common diseases seen in senior pets: diabetes, osteoarthritis, kidney disease, heart disease, cognitive dysfunction, etc.

 

Haven's revolutionary approach to senior pet care is holistic, working with your local veterinarian and any veterinary specialist who cares for your senior pet. Dr. Hill practices integrative medicine, combining traditional veterinary medicine, photobiomodulation (laser therapy), environmental enrichment, and herbal therapy.

House Call Laser Therapy (aka Photobiomodulation)

Photobiomodulation (PBM) therapy occurs when a dose of light energy reaches target tissue and results in decreased inflammation, decreased pain, and accelerated healing. This doctor-prescribed, technician-driven modality effectively treats a wide variety of conditions including pre-surgical, post-surgical, acute, and chronic disease states.

"Laser Therapy is a clinically proven and FDA-cleared treatment that reduces inflammation resulting in pain reduction. Laser Therapy is effective in treating acute pain, wounds, chronic conditions, and post-operative pain.

Laser therapy treatment is safe, painless, and fast. Treatments to deeper tissues are administered in 5 to 10 minutes. Typically, even chronic patients exhibit improvement after 3 to 5 treatment sessions. Laser therapy utilizes the body’s own healing powers by stimulating cellular activity.

Despite short treatment times, laser therapy treatments initiate a healing process that continues to actively reduce inflammation for up to 24 hours after treatment."
