Are Electroceuticals the Future of Veterinary Medicine?

Ava Frick, DVM, CVC, FAIS is the chief of staff at the Pet Rehab & Pain Clinic in Eureka, Missouri. In the video above, she discusses the role of electroceuticals such as Alpha-Stim® in treating depression, anxiety, insomnia, and pain in animals.

Alpha-Stim is an FDA cleared, handheld medical device that treats anxiety, insomnia, depression, and pain in both humans and animals. Alpha-Stim uses a patented waveform to deliver microcurrents through Earclip Electrodes (for anxiety, insomnia, and depression) as well as two handheld Smart Probes (for treatment of pain directly at the site.) It is not a drug, so there is no risk of addiction or lasting side effects. Alpha-Stim brings relief to 9 out of 10 users, and the beneficial results are cumulative over time.

When Dr. Frick first began her quest for a better way to treat pain in animals, rather than the medications that were commonly prescribed at the time, she began to attend conferences on pain in humans, hoping to apply what she learned in the veterinary world.

It wasn’t until 2000 that Dr. Frick was introduced to microcurrent therapy, but for the past 18 years she has researched the technology extensively and has developed protocol for the treatment of pain in animals.

  1. Pet owners want more options for helping their animals
  2. Medications come with side effects, and people do not want to subject their pets to those risks
  3. The opioid crisis will play a role in the acceptance and use of electroceuticals in the animal market, as it has done in the human market

Alpha-Stim has been used successfully in many species of animals, from dogs to horses, cats to cows, and everything in between. It is recommended by Dr. Frick herself, the leading authority in animal microcurrent therapy and the pioneer of Alpha-Stim protocols for animals.

If you or your pet suffers from anxiety, insomnia, depression, or pain, Alpha-Stim can help. Results are long lasting and treatments last as little as 20 minutes. Alpha-Stim is backed by over 100 clinical research studies and is trusted by the U.S. Military. Why wait another day for relief? Get started today and let nothing stop you.
