WHAT TO EXPECT

INITIAL CONSULTATION

The first appointment is about an hour and half long.  A very thorough history will be taken and previous vet records will be reviewed.  Your pet will be fully examined and will receive their first acupuncture treatment.  We will discuss a complete therapy plan including follow-up acupuncture treatments, Chinese herbs, and diet.

PET REACTIONS TO TREATMENT

Most dogs and cats do very well for acupuncture.  Sedation is not used because it diminishes the effects of the acupuncture.  Many animals rest comfortably and may even fall asleep during the treatment session.

FOLLOW-UP TREATMENTS

Follow-up acupuncture treatments are usually every 1-2 weeks for 3 to 4 sessions and then spread out as needed. Meeting our therapeutic goal may occur in as quickly as 2-3 sessions but most take 4-6 sessions. Some may require longer treatment periods if the disease is really chronic. Many animals benefit from “tune-up” sessions every few months after the initial treatment course.

Dear friends,

I am so excited to be able to offer a very individualized, holistic approach to veterinary medicine.  From my first acupuncture class in the fall of 2012, I knew it was an invaluable approach to healing. It rebalances our pets to give them ideal health and quality of life.

When my son had a severe reaction to penicillin several years ago, I became interested in a more holistic approach to medicine. Since 2009, my family has focused on alternative methods of healing ailments and on cultivating strong immune systems. I wanted very much to do this for my veterinary patients! The opportunity came when the Chi Institute brought a day-long acupuncture seminar to Baltimore. That day changed my professional life and how I think about veterinary medicine.

I am amazed on a daily basis how well our pets respond to acupuncture and other natural modalities.  The more I learn, the more excited I get about what the future could hold for my patients. I look forward to sharing the principles of integrative/holistic veterinary medicine with you as we work together to give our special dogs and cats the balanced, ideal lives they deserve.
