Holistic Pet Care


The origin of acupuncture dates back to ancient China.  For centuries the healing art of acupuncture has been practiced on animals. This form of alternative medicine is based on bio-energy.  

Acupuncture can unblock healing energy in addition to boosting the immune system, which aids in self-healing.  Acupuncture stimulates your pet’s own immune system to release endorphins and hormones, while at the same time decreasing inflammation both internally and externally.

The Chinese discovered that animals have similar acupuncture points called “meridians”, just as humans. These “meridians” are the physical point of energy flow. “Meridians” correspond to specific  internal organs, nervous system, and muscular & joint structures. When an animal is unhealthy, there is an imbalance or interference with their energy flow. The veterinary Acupuncturist manipulates your pet’s healing energy by stimulating specific acupuncture points, which alleviates the blockage or imbalance.

In order for your veterinarian to diagnose your pet, it’s important for you to have a thorough understanding of the body’s meridians and the relationship of those meridians to your pet’s corresponding condition or illness.

Here is a list of areas that respond favorably to veterinary acupuncture:


  • These are the areas most commonly treated with veterinary acupuncture in western medical practice.


  • All female reproductive conditions are acknowledged to respond to acupuncture treatment including anestrus, metritis, dystocia, retained placenta, agalactia, mastitis and mesalliance.


  • Impotence, orchitis, epididymitis, and libido can be successfully treated.


  • Almost all of your pet’s hormonal systems can be affected, including all of the pituitary functions, thyroid & parathyroid functions, including adrenal functions. It is also possible to normalize blood sugar levels.


  • Anxiety, epilepsy and behavioral disorders, have all responded well to veterinary acupuncture treatments.


  • The skin can tell us if our pet is getting proper nutrition and how well they are disposing of waste through the respiratory, digestive and urinary systems. If an Acupuncturist can keep these organs and systems in good condition, this will be reflected in the skin.


  • Acupuncture is being used to indirectly influence the performance of a dog or horse. It’s best not to use acupuncture 48 to 60 hours before a race due to the sedating effect. After 48 hours, there is usually an increase in vigor, vitality, and a general feeling of well-being.


Almost any problem that can be treated by traditional western medicine (allopathy) can be treated by veterinary homeopathy. Examples of chronic diseases that respond to veterinary homeopathy include skin allergies, ear infections, asthma, diabetes, inflammatory bowel disease, epilepsy, thyroid disease and a host of other conditions. Veterinarians who practice classical homeopathy according to academy standards have found that many otherwise chronically ill patients, can be restored to health. They have also found that homeopathy for animals can rapidly and gently treat a diverse array of acute conditions from traumatic injuries to infections and poisonings.  Veterinary homeopathy is a holistic discipline and the principles of good health such as diet, exercise and removal of stresses are also part of the process or restoring health. Veterinarians who practice homeopathy have found it to be a gentle, safe and effective medical system which offers a true cure to many pet patients.

It is always good to keep in mind that there are still a variety of conditions and illnesses that must be treated with drugs and/or surgery

The use of acupuncture and homeopathy in conjunction with drugs and/or surgery can immeasurably improve your companion animal’s chances for a rapid and complete recovery.
