Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) About Animal Acupuncture:

Does Your Animal Still Need Veterinary Care If The Animal Receives Acupuncture?

Yes. Acupuncture is meant to complement not replace veterinary care. Companion animals must be seen by a veterinary within 14 days of beginning acupuncture treatment and you will be asked for a copy of this receipt prior to the start of treatment.

How Does Acupuncture Complement Veterinary Care?

Animals who receive acupuncture recover more quickly from illnesses and surgery and often respond more quickly to traditional therapies and have an improved sense of well being and mobility.

What's The Difference Between An Animal Acupuncturist And A Veterinary Acupuncturist?

An Animal Acupuncturists is first and foremost an acupuncturist with training based on an Eastern medicine paradigm with additional training taught by veterinarians. A Veterinary acupuncturist is a veterinarian who has had additional training in the methods of acupuncture. Theresa is an Animal Acupuncturist.

What Happens During An Animal Treatment And What Is The Course Of Treatment:

How many treatments are necessary vary from animal to animal and how long they have had a particular complaint. Long term chronic problems may require a series of treatments and other problems may only require two or three treatments.

Treatment usually starts with an initial examination in which reasons for seeking treatment are uncovered. The acupuncturist will ask about your concerns, observe the animal's behavior and demeanor. The acupuncturist will observe coat and physical structure, pulse and temperature of the animal. A complete medical and social history will be taken at the time of the visit.
