Healing Springs provides Certified Veterinary Acupuncture. We DO NOT use acupuncture for pain control after surgeries, but we find it very helpful for other cases such as chronic back pain in pets, severe arthritis, pets that can’t walk due to neurological conditions, and much more. This plus the area’s only FDA-cleared cold laser therapy gives us some advantages over pharmaceutical only medical care.
