Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine

Treat your pet to expert animal acupuncture and herbal medicine

Western medicine has conditioned us to look for quick fixes using drugs or scalpels. Medication and surgery certainly have their place in high-quality veterinary care. But they also carry greater risks and longer recoveries. Eastern therapies such as acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine, on the other hand, may require more frequent or longer treatments, but they are easier on your pet. In some cases, we see immediate improvement from animal acupuncture or herbal treatments. More often than not, we need a series of treatments.

It’s important to understand that non-drug, nonsurgical therapies like acupuncture stimulate the natural healing ability of the body to repair itself and return to health. It’s also important to avoid treatments that may be just as damaging to the body as the conditions being treated. In the hands of a trained veterinary acupuncturist, acupuncture and herbal treatment will not harm the body in any way.
