Welcome! I am a veterinarian specializing in acupuncture. Vet Acu is my house call practice (established in 1999) for dogs in the Santa Barbara and Montecito areas.
Pain, mobility issues, chronic illnesses and immune system imbalances (among many other conditions) can all be effectively and safely treated with veterinary acupuncture. Many of the cases I see involve conditions such as: arthritis, disc disease, ligament or muscle problems, neck/back/hip pain, limping and dificulty or reluctance to walk, rise or lie down.
Acupuncture (for people and animals) has been practiced for thousands of years! It really has stood the test of time. The American Veterinary Medical Association considers acupuncture an integral part of veterinary medicine. The World Health Organization and the National Institutes of Health have also officially recognized acupuncture as an effective treatment for many conditions & diseases.
Veterinary Acupuncture can really work- feel free to ask if it may be a good choice for your animal friend.
