The purpose of Traditional Chinese Medicine is to evaluate the “whole” animal which includes not only physical examination but evaluation of a pet’s nutrition and emotional state based on historical and current environmental surroundings and changes. When all of these factors are considered, along with the help of Western diagnostics (blood work, radiographs/ultrasound, MRI, etc.) and treatments, the most effective treatment can be implemented.

Acupuncture is the use of needles to stimulate certain sensory points designated by ancient Chinese practitioners to elicit a given response by the body. This practice has been used for centuries to treat patients for pain associated with osteoarthritis, heart disease, gastrointestinal conditions and many more medical conditions that may or may not be treated with Western medicine. Prior to an acupuncture session at PBAH, you will be required to fill out a questionnaire form, along with sending your animal’s medical history, to best determine the treatment for your individual animal.
