At Rosemont Veterinary Hospital we are firm believers in the powers of the Western approach to veterinary medicine. We are also firm believers in the power of keeping an open mind at those times when this approach is not able to address all of the health issues of your pet. For example, acupuncture has been effectively used as an adjunctive treatment approach for separation anxiety, noise phobias, chronic pain, neurological disease, allergies, arthritis and organ failure.
Practiced for thousands of years in China and proven to work, the benefits of acupuncute in humans and animals alike is well documented. We offer acupuncture and herbal remedies as alternatives for our clients who have either exhausted the approaches of Western medicine, who prefer these treatment modalities or who simply wish to try multiple treatment avenues to maximize their best friend’s quality of life and longevity. We have seen the success of acupuncture in our own dog Whitney (see our blog post). Dr O’Dwyer has studied at the Chi Istitute for Veterinary Medicine and is now offering Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine services to clients of Rosemont. We have specials running – give us a call to find out more about this service or to set up your initial consultation at 818.957.2451.
