Acupuncture is the treatment of conditions or symptoms by the insertion of very fine needles into specific points on the body to cause a desired healing effect. Acupuncture can be used as a treatment by itself, or in conjunction with other modalities, such as Chinese herbal therapies, food therapies, and Western medicine. Each acupuncture point has specific actions when stimulated. Combinations of points are often stimulated to take advantage of synergistic reactions between them. From arthritis or incontinence to cancer, Dr. Kirwin can help you figure out whether acupuncture should be a piece of your dog’s overall wellness plan.
If you’re concerned about or bothered by an aspect of your pet’s behavior, we can help. Our doctor can work with you and your pet to stop or change the behavior.

These techniques can have dramatic results when applied properly. In some cases, medication can also help. Contact us for an appointment if you’d like to consult with Dr. Manharth.
