Alternative Services

At Bulger, we understand and respect that your pet’s quality of life is about more than just his or her physical well-being. Alternative options to traditional medicine are available for pet owners, including acupuncture for pets, as well as physical therapy and rehabilitation performed by Certified Canine Rehabilitation Practitioners (CCRP) available at our sister hospitals in Woburn and Portsmouth to aid in managing conditions related to post surgical recovery, and age-related and degenerative conditions.
