If your pet is in pain and traditional medications and other therapies have failed to work, you may want to think about scheduling an acupuncture appointment with your Valley Center veterinarian service. Acupuncture is a great way to manage pain and will help you and your dog or cat feel better.

Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese medicine that has been in use for thousands of years. It operates under the philosophy of energies within our bodies called qi. These energies flow through our bodies, when they are interrupted or when there is excess flow, illness can occur. In most cases, we associate acupuncture with humans, but there is plenty of evidence that shows pets can also benefit from the treatments. Acupuncture holds the ability to balance the qi in your pet. Here are a few benefits acupuncture offers.

Arthritis– As you pet ages, their joints become stiff and they suffer a loss of mobility and fatigue. Acupuncture can help regulate the energy within these fatigued joints, enabling your dog or cat to better manage their pain and be more active.

Gastrointestinal Disorders– As your cat or dog ages, their stomachs will often become more sensitive to a variety of pathogens and even develop food allergies. In is not at all uncommon for older cats and dogs to suffer more frequent bouts with the flu and other stomach problems. Acupuncture can help ease discomfort associated with these disorders.

Even if your pet seems happy, animal acupuncture is a way to improve and extend the healthy life of your cat or dog. Give us a call for more details.



Please come right over in the event of a pet emergency. Our technicians will assess the nature of the emergency and determine if we can initiate treatment or transfer to a 24 hour medical facility. We can treat the vast majority of emergency cases on-site.

With advance notice, we can schedule convenient appointments at your home. We can take the hastle out of the experience by performing pet examinations on your property. This exceptional service was created to assist the elderly with large breed older dogs, owners with very scared cats.
