CVRC is excited to announce that we now offer shockwave therapy for your pets!

How it Works

A shock wave is a high energy, focused sound wave that stimulates cells and releases healing growth factors in the body for the following benefits:

  • Reduce inflammation and swelling
  • Increase blood flow
  • Help bones form and heal, and enhance wound healing

These sound waves release higher energy and result in deeper penetration by traveling through soft tissue at different depths to a specific treatment area and begin healing.

Additional Benefits

Beware of snakes as warmer weather arrives in the Lowcountry. Our outdoor pets are vulnerable these days, and it’s not just hunting dogs that are in danger.

Dr. Kristin Welch, who helped with this article, is the head of Emergency and Critical Care at Charleston Veterinary Referral Center and the only board-certified critical-care specialist in South Carolina. She reminds us that of more than 120 species of snakes identified in the United States, 20 of them are venomous. Those that are poisonous in South Carolina include three species of rattlesnakes as well as cottonmouth water moccasins, copperheads and coral snakes.
