Acupuncture is just one facet of Traditional Chinese Medicine, and we are very pleased to be able to offer this treatment option to you and your pets for various medical conditions.
Acupuncture involves the stimulation of specific points along the body. There are various methods of stimulation, but the one most people are familiar with is to use a thin sterile needle. According to Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine, stimulating specific points corrects imbalances in the flow of qi through channels known as meridians.
In addition to using needles, other forms of stimulation such as pressure, massage or electricity may be used.
Traditional Chinese herbs and specific dietary changes, including fresh foods are often part of Acupuncture Therapy.
If you think your pet would benefit from Acupuncture, please call the hospital at 824-4108 to schedule a consultation with Dr. Kim Jacobi, our Certified Veterinary Acupuncturist.
