Our clinic embraces the holistic approach to pet health and wellness. We balance traditional medicine with acupuncture, electromagnetic diagnostics and treatments, massage, chiropractic, hydrotherapy, IVIVI / Assisi Electroceutical Therapies, and Kangen alkaline water.

What is Kangen Water? It is alkaline antioxidant water that has many remarkable health benefits.

Why and How does it work? Kangen Water system allows living water to easily enter the body at the cellular level. The ionization process allows the water molecules to be the right size to easily enter the cells. It provides a negative ORP (oxidation reduction potential) which is the gaining of electrons thus providing a negative charge. When you lose electrons and establish a negative ORP, this provides an anti-oxidation and anti-inflammatory effect. The small water molecules (5-6 microclusters versus 20 or more) allows the water to easily enter the cells which provides optimal hydration. Acidic water is the perfect pH state for disease states (weather example is “acid rain”).

Alkaline antioxidant water alkalinizes our metabolism, not our blood pH. Toxins and metabolites from stress, our diets and other causes including cancer cause our metabolic pH to be acidic and unbalanced.

Cells that are not well hydrated with the correct metabolic pH begin to oxidize and mutate. Mutation is what leads to cancer and most other disease processes. All disease conditions have an inflammation component. Kangen Water is an alkaline anti-oxidizing water that reduces inflammation.

Water is the foundation of life. All animals are made up of 90% water, therefore consuming healthy water that is alkaline, small microclusters, and is ionized with a negative ORP is essential for ideal health. Drinking Kangen Water is the fastest way to positively impact health and eradicate inflammation and disease.

Kangen Water is recommended as the best drinking water available for all pets and people. It has been used for many health conditions and needs including weight loss, dermatitis including psoriasis and eczema, allergies, anxiety and depression, dementia, improve athletic performance and increase stamina, prostate, GI upset from acid reflux to chronic inflammatory disease, diabetes, kidney and liver failure, muscle diseases / cramps, arthritis, joint trauma, gout, high cholesterol, various cancers including GI, throat, brain, breast, and prostate, paralysis, chemo toxicity, wound healing, reduction of medication needs, improved mental clarity, and more.

People and pets should drink water at the rate of 2/3 of their body weight per day in ounces. For example 150 pound individual should drink approximately 100 ounces of water per day which is around 3 liters or quarts per day.

Kangen alkaline ionizer and water filtration machines are manufactured in Japan by Enagic, International. For more information about these machines you can visit their website at www.enagic.com. They are only sold through a distributor. Dr. Burr is a distributor and you can place an order by contacting Lake Chatuge Animal Hospital at (706) 896-1244 for his distributor number, the form needed to place the order, and to answer any questions you might have.

Pulsed Signal Therapy

PST is a non-invasive treatment that has been successfully used in human medicine in Europe for various debilitating conditions since 1994. It has just recently been approved for use in dogs and cats here in the USA.

PST provides a specific physiological signal carried on a series of magnetic field pulses to the treatment site(s). These uniquely specific energy parameters are transmitted through injured tissue to target the affected area via direct induction. It induces a tiny electrical signal that mimics physiological stimulus that normally occurs in healthy tissue, thus stimulating cellular repair. In the case of damaged and/or arthritic joints, it stimulates the production of new cartilage. In human studies involving over 100,000 patients, PST consistently provided long-term efficacy with no safety issues. It is being used for various conditions including osteoarthritis of the knee, and cervical and lumbar spine, TMJ disorder (temporomandibular joint), chronic pain associated with connective tissue (cartilage, tendon, ligament and bone injury), and joint associated soft tissue traumatic injuries.

In humans, PST has been shown to be an effective and harmless alternative that usually requires only one course of treatment to provide sustained relief of pain and restoration of normal mobility as demonstrated in long-term follow-up studies. PST is an established treatment modality and there are now more than 500 PST therapy centers worldwide for people. It focuses on using “nature’s healing benefits” by stimulating the body to restore its natural rhythm and “heal itself”, so that other continual therapies may no longer be needed.

Reducing inflammation is a critical first step in healing. To bring our clients the newest and best advancements in pet health, we now offer the Assisi Loop® 2.0, an innovative device that greatly reduces inflammation without the use of drugs or invasive technology.

The Assisi Loop 2.0 uses low-level pulses of electromagnetic energy to reduce inflammation and pain, and to enhance recovery. The Loop is a targeted Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy (tPEMF®) device that is portable and easy to use, and can be used at the clinic or in the home/stable to supplement in-office treatments. Use of the Assisi Loop 2.0 will not interfere with existing standard treatment procedures or pain management programs. It is effective in combination with laser therapy, acupuncture, chiropractic treatments, and pain and inflammation medications.

In addition to treating inflammation and pain, the Assisi Loop 2.0 is also effective for a number of other issues, including:

  • Orthopedic Injuries: Strains or sprains, torn cruciate, blown discs, fractures, muscle strains and broken bones.
  • Degenerative Disorders: Osteoarthritis, dysplasia, degenerative myelopathy, degenerative joint disease and spinal instability.
  • Neurological Issues: IVDD, Wobblers Disease, neuropathy, myelitis and lumbar stenosis.
  • Wound Care: Infected wounds, chronic non-healing wounds and lick granulomas.
  • Other Inflammatory Issues: Pancreatitis, cystitis, tracheal bronchitis and laminitis.
  • Post-Surgical Pain and Swelling: Following amputations, tooth extractions, tumor removal and ACL repair.
