Welcome to the Integrative Medicine Service at the UC Davis Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital. Integrative medicine includes a comprehensive approach to veterinary medicine that complements conventional diagnostic and treatment modalities to optimize clinical outcome. Treatments the Service offers include acupuncture and other methods of pain management, palliative care, and physical rehabilitation (which can include rehabilitation following surgery, paralysis rehabilitation, weight loss, and canine athlete injury rehabilitation).

The integrative medicine team works closely with other Services in the VMTH to identify multidisciplinary treatment opportunities to provide optimal patient outcomes.

Patients of the Integrative Medicine Service are treated in a 1,000-square-foot open treatment area that resembles a gym and two private treatment rooms. The Service’s state-of-the-art equipment includes electric high/low treatment tables, two underwater treadmills, two land-based treadmill, therapeutic exercise equipment, ramp and stairs, and equipment to fabricate thermoplastic orthotics.
