Dr. Mesher provides veterinary acupuncture and integrative care for dogs and cats in the comfort of their home. This combination of holistic and modern medicine provides many options for pets when treating various conditions.
All new acupuncture patients receive a comprehensive examination, which will allow for both veterinary acupuncture and modern medical treatments. This integrative approach also allows for various diagnostic procedures such as bloodwork, urinalysis, ultrasounds, etc. Often, a combination of therapies may be the most effective.
Veterinary acupuncture for dogs and cats is very effective in treating a variety of conditions and diseases in pets. Besides being frequently used to treat pain for such issues as recovery from surgery, back problems and arthritis, it can also be effective for the following conditions:
Most pets tolerate the placement of the needles very well, and most get very relaxed and calm during and after the treatment. Some issues may respond well to just one or two treatments, however some longer term or chronic issues often take a series of visits or periodic visits for the rest of their life. Dr. Mesher will discuss this with you at the first appointment.
Veterinary electro-acupuncture is a variant of acupuncture where a very low current of electricity is passed between pairs of acupuncture needles. Electro-acupuncture is often especially beneficial for neurologic disorders such as Intervertebral Disk Disease.
Aqua-puncture is the injection of a sterile solution (usually saline or liquid vitamin B-12), into the acupuncture points of your pet.
For pets who do not tolerate the traditional acupuncture needles for the recommended length of time (needles are usually in for 10 to 40 minutes), aqua-puncture is an alternative that will provide some time released pressure to the points after the injection is given. The injections may also be given after a traditional acupuncture session to have a longer effect on certain points.
