Welcome! I am a veterinarian specializing in acupuncture. Veterinary Acupuncture is my house call practice (established in 1999) for dogs and cats in the Santa Barbara and Montecito areas. I utilize regular acupuncture, cold laser acupuncture and electro acupuncture. I provide my patients with a home based, natural medical approach to manage pain, improve mobility and rehabilitate from age related conditions, injuries and surgical procedures. Please check the Appt Specifics page for more info regarding my house calls.
Pain, mobility issues, chronic illnesses and immune system imbalances (among many other conditions) can all be effectively and safely treated with veterinary acupuncture.
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.
Acupuncture can help with painful problems such as: arthritis or joint disease, intervertebral disc disease (IVDD), ligament, tendon and/or muscle problems, limping and difficulty or reluctance to walk, rise or lie down.
Veterinary Acupuncture can really work- feel free to ask if it may be a good choice for your animal friend.
