Acupuncture

Paumanok Veterinary Hospital now offers veterinary acupuncture for our dog and cat patients. Dr. Maggie Camilleri is a fully certified veterinary acupuncturist (CVA) after competing her training through the Chi Institute. Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese medical treatment that involves placing small needles at very specific points on the body in order to stimulate blood flow, nerve endings, muscle bodies, and the release of chemicals in the body to help promote pain relief and speed healing. It is most often used in patients with arthritis, orthopedic injuries, and back issues. However, it can be useful in a variety of other conditions, including chronic gastrointestinal, cardiac, respiratory, and kidney/urinary problems.

“Thanks Drs. Dave, Dee, and your wonderful staff. It has been just about a year since we found out that Sullivan, our 7Ĺ-year-old German shepherd, had cancer. We had just lost his brother, Finnigan, 6 months earlier to a genetic disorder. WE WERE HORRIFIED!!! Surgery was necessary to remove the tumor. The procedure was radical, and Dr. Dave had never preformed it before. He was ready to call in a specialist. Dr. Dave and his wonderful staff have cared for our Sully and his brother Fin ever since they were 8 weeks old. If he believed he could perform the surgery, we wanted him to do it. The prognosis was not good. This type of cancer would probably return within the year. Well, Sully is doing just great. He is cancer free. Our heartfelt thanks just donít seem to be enough. Drs. Dave, Dee, and the staff at Paumanok are the only ones we will ever use.”
