Does your pet suffer from chronic pain or a debilitating medical condition?

For generations now, veterinary professionals across the globe have been practicing the ancient art of acupuncture on our animal friends. This technique is based on the concept that a balanced internal body function is essential for optimum health. Acupuncture promotes natural healing which can help to treat and manage a wide variety of ailments without the need for medication.

Dr. Leslie Goldblatt is certified in Veterinary Acupuncture and has performed acupuncture on a number of patients with good results. At Greenbrier Animal Hospital, we believe that our clients deserve as many choices as possible when it comes to keeping their pets well. That’s why we’re so pleased to offer veterinary acupuncture as part of our comprehensive list of services.

How does acupuncture work?

Acupuncture uses tiny needles to stimulate certain points along the body. These points, known as acupoints, are believed to provide a direct channel to the body’s energy force (Qi). When Qi is not properly balanced or becomes obstructed in some way, disease can develop. Once inserted, the acupuncture needles manipulate the Qi to restore balance and promote natural healing from within.

What does acupuncture treat?

Veterinary acupuncture can be used to treat a broad range of conditions, both acute and chronic. Some of the ailments we’ve used acupuncture to address include, but are not limited to:

  • Arthritis
  • Hip Dysplasia
  • Muscle Injuries
  • Joint Disease
  • Respiratory Issues (bronchitis, asthma, etc.)
  • Dermatological Conditions
  • Digestive Problems (vomiting, diarrhea, etc.)
  • Behavioral Disorders
  • Neurological Problems

Acupuncture can also be used as a preventative tool to help strengthen the immune system and promote a healthier lifestyle.

How many sessions will my pet need?

Each animal is different, as are the various conditions being addressed. Your pet’s treatment plan will depend on a number of unique factors. For minor issues, one or two sessions may be sufficient, while other, more complex conditions may require a longer-term strategy. We will be able to provide you with a professional recommendation once the doctor has had the chance to evaluate your pet.

What Our Clients Say…

Our 12-year old Shih Tzu needed to have her teeth cleaned, and Dr. Goldblatt discovered a growth on her gum line during a recent and thorough physical where she and her Shih Tzu sister were examined from head to tail. The procedure was done with care by caring and skilled professionals. While it took a little while for our dog to become fully awake, she’s back to her old self. Good people, good care. Probably somewhere close to 20 plus years we’ve gone to either Golden Valley and/or Greenbrier with our companion animals’ health care. Always pleased.

great staff & they have always taken VERY good care of my Rambler. He is very upset on the way there (hates the car) but is NEVER upset when he is there (=
