Veterinary Orthopedic Manipulation (VOM)

Veterinary Orthopedic Manipulation is a healing technology that locates areas of the animal’s nervous system that has fallen out of communication and reestablishes neuronal communication and thus induces healing. The goal of an adjustment in an animal is that all the vertebral subluxations in that animal are reduced.

VOM can treat:

  • Acute and non-acute lameness
  • Progressive lameness
  • Hip Dysplasia-like syndromes
  • IV Disc disease
  • Progressive myelopathies (“down in the rears” dogs)
  • Urinary and fecal incontinence
  • Unilateral lameness
  • Wobbler’s Disease
  • Diseases of the knee
  • Esophageal disease
  • Digestive disorders
  • Performance problems
  • Behavioral problems
  • Agility dysfunction
  • Endocrine disease

Dr. Rachel Starr is VOM-trained practitioners.

Standard Process Supplements

Here at Elk Rapids Animal Hospital, we carry nutritional supplements from Standard Process. We chose Standard Process because they make high-quality, whole food nutritional supplements to support the body through healing, to support specific organ functions, or to add nutritive value to dog food. Having the right nutrients available is important to healing and many chronic health conditions can benefit from nutritional support. If your dog has chronic or intermittent diarrhea or vomiting, thyroid disease, adrenal disease, allergies, heart disease, kidney or liver disease, or autoimmune disease, he or she may be a good candidate for nutritional support. If you are interested in whole food vitamins or augmenting your pet’s treatment with nutritional support, schedule a nutritional consultation with Dr. Rachel Starr.
