Veterinary Acupuncture Treatment

Veterinary medical acupuncture is the insertion of hair-thin needles at specific points in the body to create a physiological response. By activating the central nervous system, acupuncture releases the body's natural painkillers (endorphins), hormones (cortisol) and neurotransmitters (serotonin), thereby affecting all systems of the body. Harnessing the body's own ability to cure itself, acupuncture not only heals illnesses but also rebalances your pet's emotions.

After treatment your pet will feel relaxed and energized.

Veterinary Behavior Treatment

Veterinary behavioral medicine involves the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of psychological problems in pets. Vets have a detailed knowledge of behavior modifying medications which are often effective in treating fears, phobias and aggression. Through proper analysis, diagnosis and construction of a state-of-the-art treatment plan, owners discover how to effectively manage and modify the pet's condition. Behavior consultation only on referral by your Vet.

Gentle Vet treats animals with empathy, humanity and common sense.

Veterinary Chiropractic Treatment

Veterinary chiropractic is a hands-on therapy, designed to relieve biomechanical dysfunction of the spine and joints, restoring optimal movement and alleviating pain. The doctor applies a specific small, quick thrust to help a joint regain its normal range of motion. Chiropractic adjustments can calm the entire nervous system by allowing the nerves to relax and function normally.

Chiropractic treatment can provide additional diagnostic and treatment options for spinal and musculoskeletal disorders.

  • Dr. Dodd put Dakota on a program of acupuncture and natural medicines. At first a skeptic, I quickly saw a marked improvement in Dakota's ability to move without pain, and again join me for walks in the mountains.
