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.

“I love this hospital! I have been to several veterinarians on Long Island through many of my different petsí lives and Paumanok is the most personal. I love that I can bring my guinea pigs, cats, and dog all into the same facility and I always see the same doctor. They are very accommodating with their hours and the doctors always call back within a reasonable amount of time. Both doctors do a wonderful job of listening to descriptions of problems. I never feel belittled. And when they are describing whatever the issue is, I always understand; they answer every question, no matter how silly. I also like how the staff is like a family and work well together. I recommend this place to everyone I know! ”
