Dear Referring Veterinary Hospital:

 

We would like to introduce you to our new alternative medicine and rehabilitation center conveniently located in Clearwater. We are a full-service, referral based integrative medicine center focused on working collaboratively with you, the referring provider. Our goal is to provide alternative treatments in pet medicine designed to make dogs and cats happier and healthier. We offer acupuncture, veterinary medical manipulation, laser therapy, underwater

treadmill therapy, and other rehabilitation modalities that have shown to minimize pain, increase muscle mass and strength, and provide countless other benefits in the management of many chronic disease processes. These modalities are not designed to replace traditional therapies, but rather to enhance the outcome of the healthcare that you are already providing.

 

When you refer patients, they will first be assessed in a comprehensive consultation with Dr. Brauer. A treatment plan will be created based upon patient signalment, history, disease process and client expectations. The plan will then be tailored to realistic goals and expectations for the patient and reassessed on a regular basis. Treatment will involve patient-specific regimen of modalities and therapeutic exercises. We will contact you in the manner you selected following the initial evaluation to discuss the rehabilitation/alternative medicine plan.

It is our standard policy to send patients back to you for continued care following rehabilitation and alternative medicine procedures. The veterinarians and staff at Sunshine Animal Hospital are available for consultation only at your request.

Please contact us for more information.
