Acupuncture

Veterinary acupuncture is a centuries-old practice that helps the body cope with conditions or symptoms by triggering important responses via delicate fine needle insertions into the body. The depth of needle insertion, the type of stimulation applied to the needles, and the duration of each treatment session depends on the patient’s tolerance and the condition being treated.

Conditions treated

  • Chemotherapy – minimizing side effects
  • Chronic conditions – asthma, geriatric weakness, skin problems
  • Dermatologic disorders
  • Gastrointestinal disorders – diarrhea, constipation, vomiting, poor appetite
  • Immune system disorders
  • Musculoskeletal problems – soreness, pain, osteoarthritis, degenerative joint disease
  • Neurological disorders – seizure, weakness from chronic disc disease, radial nerve or facial paralysis
  • Pulmonary disorders
  • Reproductive disorders

Quality of care

In more than 30 years of veterinary practice, there isn’t much we haven’t seen and successfully treated. In fact, our work handling very complicated cases across many disciplines has been featured in local, regional and national news programs over the years.

On occasion, though, in order to coordinate a superior level of care that is enhanced by the wisdom, expertise and experience of additional professionals with unique capabilities, we may refer to or work with doctors and specialists at other local hospitals on particular cases.  The goal in these instances is to bring together the very best veterinary minds in the region to care for pets in need.
