Veterinary acupuncture for dogs and cats is a therapeutic treatment method that involves the insertion of sterile needles. Modern medical practitioners developed medical acupuncture as an adaptation to Chinese acupuncture. Instead of relying on inexact metaphors to describe the body’s responses to treatment, Dr. Wilson employs current knowledge of anatomy, physiology, and pathology, all in keeping with evidence-based veterinary medicine.
The medical acupuncture courses at CuraCore (Colorado State University) emphasize the importance of a type of physical examination called “myofascial palpation” that allows the veterinarian to determine the location and sources of discomfort and dysfunction.
Dr. Wilson received her medical acupuncture certification from CuraCore and provides medical acupuncture and veterinarian services for both cats and dogs.
As an integrative wellness veterinarian, she believes in integrating contemporary treatment and adjunctive therapies like acupuncture. She will work closely with your primary care veterinarian so your pet receives the best possible care.
