Here at Newkirk Family Veterinarians, we hold a strong belief that no two patients are ever exactly alike. We believe in looking at your pet’s health and wellness as one big picture, rather than a series of smaller puzzles. Each aspect of your pet’s health can affect the others, and we pay attention to the big picture when diagnosing and treating your pet.
This form of veterinary practice is called holistic veterinary medicine, and we are proud to be both a traditional and holistic veterinarian in Egg Harbor Township, NJ. Like most pet owners, we believe in trying and using whatever works, and that’s usually a combination of a few different things. Here are the main holistic services we proudly provide our patients.

Pulsed Electro Magnetic Frequency Therapy (PEMF)
PEMF treats many musculoskeletal disorders that are a source of pain. These include arthritism, tendinitis, sprains, and strains, factures, post-op pain, osteoporosis, wounds, neuralgias, neuropathies, hip disorders, muscle spasms, spinal cord injury, trauma, burns, neuromas, heel spurs, phantom pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, headaches, tennis elbow, complex regional pain syndrome, and more!
Routine use of Magna Wave pulsed magnetic energy is said to “Improve the body’s ability to repair cells and recover”
With aging or injury, cells no longer function correctly. This situation leads to poor circulation, declining performance, premature aging, and degenerative diseases. To potentially reclaim the body’s natural state of health, cell function needs to be restored. Routine use of Magna Wave pulsed magnetic energy is said to improve the body’s ability to repair cells and recover from illnesses.
Why is PEMF said to be good for health maintenance?
A pulsating magnetic field or PMF is said to produce one main result: stimulating cell metabolism. This action is thought to cause a chain of processes in the body that could lead to improvement of health without side effects. A cell produces its energy, called ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate). This energy is necessary for the function of the body. To be able to execute and control all these processes properly, good cell metabolism is required. The cell needs a membrane potential of 70 D 90 mV (millivolt). Whenever this electrical potential drops, active metabolism is impaired. Low-performance levels and chronic disease are the results. Ultimately, every illness is the consequence of impaired cell metabolism.
General exhaustion of the body, caused by stress or chronic disease, will reduce the cell’s membrane potential (usually between 70 to 90 m). If this potential approaches the zero level, the cell dies. Magna Wave, with it’s perceived ion transport system, could enable the membrane to be hyperpolarized, and the membrane potential thus normalizes and healing occurs.
In addition to providing a wide range of holistic veterinary services, we also are proud to sell holistic pet food and supplements. When it comes to choosing ingredients for our pet food, we approach the process with one simple rule: we refuse to feed your pets anything that we wouldn’t feel comfortable eating ourselves. Our pet food is full of meat, vegetables and antioxidants for your pet’s benefit. Our supplements will help promote the overall health and digestive health of your pet.
