Acupuncture is truly a treatment modality were modern science meets ancient art! Acupuncture is the stimulation of specific points on the body, which have the ability to alter various biochemical and physiological conditions in order to achieve a healing effect. Ancient Chinese medical philosophy believes that disease is a result of an imbalance of energy in the body. Acupuncture is believed to balance this energy, and thereby assist the body in healing disease. In Western terms, acupuncture can assist the body’s efforts to heal itself by causing certain physiologic changes.

In the hands of an experienced, licensed veterinarian, acupuncture is a very safe treatment option, with no harmful side effects or drug interactions.

While acupuncture is not without sensation, our goal is to create a relaxing, enjoyable experience for our animal patients. We take our time to introduce pets to the process, and as a result, the vast majority of our patients enjoy their treatments without sedation or restraint.
