Acupuncture is not new. It is not "trendy." It has been around for thousands of years and has proven itself as an effective holistic modality. The ancient Chinese identified 361 points in humans and 173 in animals, which when stimulated, can affect the flow of Qi (pronounced chee). The goal is to maintain or achieve balanced qi flow. The Chi Institute in Florida is a world renowned facility for training veterinarians who wish to practice acupuncture. Dr. Huisheng Xie explains the existence of Qi as a life force. There are two opposite forms of Qi: Yin and Yang. Their constant flow through the body should be smooth. When this flow is disrupted, an imbalance occurs. This imbalance results in dis-ease. Needle stimulation in specific locations can release pain-causing blockages and thus restore the free flow of qi, balance of yin and yang, and thereby, comfort. Similarly, an individual can develop a deficiency of qi. Needle placement and manipulation can stimulate qi flow as well. Any disorder causes an imbalance in yin and yang. Acupuncture may be used to aid in the restoration of any imbalance.

Want to SpOil Your Pet?
Animal Doctor Holistic Veterinary Complex tells you how...
Use Essential Oils!
An essential oil is the liquid removed from a plant via distillation. This is not to be confused with essential fatty acids. Essential oils are volatile, they evaporate. Therapeutic grade essential oils contain no synthetic perfumes. Therapeutic grade are the only type of oils which should be used on dogs and cats.
Medicinal use is much more than "aromatherapy".
The health of your pet's mind, body and spirit is influenced by your well-being, the health of your pet's environment (external forces including hygiene and nutrition), genetics and our (the clinic's) well-being. We believe unconditional love, safety, exemplary nutrition, abundant exercise and training are the five most important factors a guardian must provide to achieve maximal quality and longevity of life for his/her pet companion. Your initial holistic consultation and pet's complete physical examination includes approximately 30-45 minutes of discussion regarding your pet's physical and personality traits, nutrition, blood work and training recommendations and other preventative care products or treatment options or specialist referral recommendations. We can discuss your impact on your pet's life, how you can help to prevent or treat conditions of which you may be concerned.
