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 have two Bernese mountain dogs, Phoebe, age 2, and Paloma, age 4, and one 16-year-old tabby cat, Sammy. All are treated by the veterinarians at Paumanok. Throughout the past 4-plus years that we have had our animals treated by this hospital for either emergencies or well visits, our animals have been treated with dignity, respect, and love. Our older Bernese used to be fearful of visits and to make her more comfortable, we were invited to the office for a sunshine visit, a treat, and an ear scratch to make sure she is comfortable the next time she visits. Upon receiving treatments, we, the human parents, have been provided an education about the illness, the available treatment and options, and the plan of treatments. We always receive follow-up calls to see how our pets are days after the initial contact with the office. ”
