Acupuncture and Veterinary Orthopedic Manipulation
Dr. Janet Dunn, a licensed veterinarian with years of clinicial experience, is trained in both acupuncture and veterinary orthopedic manipulation (VOM) and provides both exclusively through her private practice and Scout’s House.
Used in veterinary medicine in China for more than 3000 years, acupuncture involves the insertion of hair-thin needles into specific points on the body to balance energy and encourage healing. By stimulating nerves, increasing blood circulation, decreasing muscle spasms, and controlling pain, acupuncture can help such musculoskeletal problems as arthritis, hip and elbow dysplasia, spondylosis, rear-limb weakness, and urinary incontinence. It may also help neurological disorders, such as intervertebral disk disease (IVDD).
Veterinary Orthopedic Manipulation
VOM can encourage your pet’s natural healing process by finding and correcting areas of miscommunication within your pet’s nervous system. It may help pets with a variety of functional issues, including lameness, hip and elbow dysplasia, IVDD, and urinary incontinence.
