Western veterinary medicine is excellent for treating many cat and dog health issues, but sometimes it does not work as well as we want.  Some pets with arthritis, intestinal diseases, epilepsy, nerve damage, cancer and other chronic conditions may not respond well to conventional, Western treatment.  The side effects of modern medicines may cause even more problems.  Many times, these difficult ailments can be managed effectively with Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM), also called pet acupuncture or veterinary acupuncture, with virtually few side effects. 

Our modern society often is oriented to a “quick fix”.  TCVM sometimes takes a little bit longer to be effective, but with much less risk of unpleasant side effects.  Western Medicine and TCVM have different approaches medically, but together they can be used to complement one another. This concept is known as Integrative Medicine. 

For holistic pet treatment, herbal medication for pets, and veterinary acupuncture and massage therapy, please make an appointment with us today.

Each meridian is also associated with a specific internal organ which reflects the physiological and pathological conditions of that organ. The meridians connect the exterior of the body with the interior.
