Your Pet’s Treatment Experience
During the first visit we will speak at length about your pet’s health concerns and address any questions you may have about acupuncture and the healing process. We will also discuss your pet’s health history in detail, followed by a physical examination. The goal of the first appointment is to assess the underlying conditions that have led to your pet’s current symptoms. Following the initial consultation, ideally your pet will be seen in weekly sessions for 4-5 treatments. A longer series of treatments may be required for pets with chronic long term problems, and acute problems may require just 2-3 treatments. Treatment sessions may be over in as little as five minutes or last as long as a half an hour, depending on your pet’s condition. As your pet experiences an improvement in symptoms, treatments can be spaced out to every other week, once a month, and eventually seasonally.
