Acupuncture is a centuries-old process of inserting small, sterile needles under the skin of the pet into blood vessels and nerve bundles. These tiny needles stimulate these nerves and cause a chemical release in the muscle, brain, and spinal cord which can lead to a healing response. The practice of acupuncture uses the body's chemicals and healing powers for a variety of conditions listed below. Dr. Kellie Horton completed extensive training and experience with veterinary acupuncture and often recommends the practice in conjunction with western methods of medicine. Charleston Mobile Animal Care serves the veterinary acupuncture needs of pets at home in the Charleston, Mount Pleasant, and Sullivan's Island areas of South Carolina.
