Why Does My Animal Need Acupuncture?
Would you like your animal to feel better and perform better? Does your animal exhibit any of the following problems? Are you looking for an alternative or adjunctive therapy to medications or supplements?
Performance problems, such as back pain, sore muscles, tendon/ligament strain, & joint pain
Degenerative joint disease, especially hip dysplasia & chronic arthritis
Allergies and other immune system disorders, especially respiratory allergies such as "heaves" in horses and feline asthma
Pain relief, especially musculoskeletal pain
Neurologic disorders, such as intervertebral disc disease, degenerative myelopathy, facial nerve paralysis, radial nerve paralysis, & muscle atrophy
Senior wellness treatments: Just because your dog/cat/horse is elderly does not mean they need to feel poorly, have difficulty getting around, or lose their zest for life! I can help them regain some of their youthful vigor.
Behavior or mood problems
Poorly healing wounds, such as lick granulomas and lower limb injuries in horses
Pre- and post-operative therapy for cruciate ligament injuries
Chronic organ dysfunction, especially liver & kidney
Chronic skin disease
Chronic digestive problems, such as chronic diarrhea, gastric ulcers, & poor digestion
Eye disorders including corneal ulcers & equine recurrent uveitis (“moon blindness”)
Heel pain syndrome (“navicular”)
Chiropractic adjustment follow-up, especially helpful the day of chiropractic treatment to erase muscle memory and enhance the effectiveness of the chiropractic adjustment
Dental work follow-up, especially for horses with extensive dental work. Helps relieve soreness and tension caused by the full-mouth speculum, and release the TMJ joint.
