Unfamiliar with Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is an ancient healing art involving inserting ultra-fine needles at strategic points in the body to trigger a healing response. Its efficacy in treating numerous conditions is backed by a growing body of scientific research. Due to its gentle, non-invasive nature, it often serves as a viable option for pets suffering from illness or injury. Acupuncture has demonstrated particular effectiveness in managing conditions such as arthritis, traumatic nerve injury, certain dermatological problems, gastrointestinal issues, and more.

Our team is skilled in tailoring holistic modalities to suit your pet’s unique needs. Treatments are conducted within a serene, distraction-free area in our hospital, with session durations varying from 30 to 60 minutes depending on your pet’s requirements.

These integrative medicine services are available at our Escondido practice, led by our esteemed veterinarian, Dr. Tessa Sghiatti.
