Acupuncture is the mainstay of Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine. Used for thousands of years, acupuncture involves inserting small needles into specific points on an animal in order to regulate nerve conduction, lymphatic flow, blood flow and movement of cells within the body in order to promote healing and overall health.
Acupuncture can be used for treating everything from skin disorders and GI disease in dogs and cats to colic in horses and even “downer” cows. The majority of animals tolerate this procedure very well, even cats and “needle-shy” animals. Dr. Duncan attended specialized training in this proven method of treatment by attending the Chi institute in 2017. She has completed her testing and will be certified in 2018.
