Paumanok Veterinary Hospital now offers veterinary acupuncture for our dog and cat patients. Dr. Maggie Camilleri is a fully certified veterinary acupuncturist (CVA) after completing 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.
