An ancient “art” and science that was developed over 5000 years ago in China. This method was developed to help heal humans, horses and other livestock. Refinements in techniques have evolved with further study so that dogs, cats, birds, ferrets, and other pocket pets can benefit from this therapy as well. Acupuncture is a therapy that uses tiny (solid, sterile) needles that are placed in specific anatomical places (acupuncture sites) for a period of 20 - 30 minutes over the body’s surface to achieve a desired physiological response. Acupuncture combined with Chinese herbs can help with almost every pet disease including seizures, diabetes, diarrhea, allergies, arthritis and many other disorders. Many pets we treat have some level of immediate relief and go home and take long naps after acupuncture therapy.
This is a form of acupuncture in which a sterile, medical-grade solution (for example a vitamin B12 solution) is injected into the acupuncture points with tiny, sterile needles. Instead of your pet having to sit still for 15 to 30 minutes as with regular acupuncture needles, this session is completed in a very short time and relies on the injected solution to stimulate the acupuncture note. This is ideal for dogs or cats who have difficulty sitting still.

A practice of healing using natural foods along with, or instead of, medications. Foods are classified by Yin and Yang food groups, and by their natures and characteristics. Food therapy involves the preparation of using selected food ingredients and superior herbs. Each recipe has been developed under the supervision of TCVM Theory (Yin-Yang, Five Elements, Eight Principles, and Zang-Fu physiology and pathology) and is designed to treat specific health conditions. Some pet owners are willing to cook for their pets and purchase organic foods. Others want a simple but healthy recommendation for their pet. We will do our best to make dietary recommendations that are both accommodating to your lifestyle and appropriate to your pet’s food therapy requirements.
