Welcome! I am a veterinarian specializing in acupuncture. Veterinary Acupuncture is a house call based practice (established in 1999) for dogs and cats in the Santa Barbara and Montecito areas. I provide my patients with a home based, natural medical approach to manage pain, improve mobility and rehabilitate. Please check the Appt Specifics page for more specific info.
Pain, mobility issues, chronic illnesses and immune system imbalances can all be effectively and safely treated with veterinary acupuncture. Many of the cases I see involve conditions such as: arthritis or joint disease, intervertebral disc disease (IVDD), ligament, tendon and/or muscle problems, neck/back/hip pain, limping and difficulty 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.
