We specialize in Acupuncture, Chiropractic, Rehabilitation, and Laser Therapy. At this time, we do not offer routine vaccination, bloodwork, x-ray and other diagnostics. Please visit your Primary Care Veterinarian for these services.
This depends on the issue that is being treated, whether the problem is chronic or acute, your animal's response to treatment, as well as your own goals for treatment. An acute injury that has appeared recently may only need 1-4 treatments, whereas a long term chronic issue might benefit from ongoing monthly or quarterly treatments. In both cases treatments may initially need to be more frequent than the examples given. It is best to discuss your pet's individual case during the first appointment to determine what is the best course of treatment.
Please be considerate and provide a minimum of 24-48 hours notification to reschedule or cancel an appointment.
Payment is due at the time of service. Currently we accept cash, check, credit card, and Venmo.
Only licensed veterinarians are qualified to practice veterinary acupuncture. In Ohio, a provider should be a veterinarian or human chiropractor (DC) with an animal certification to perform chiropractic adjustments on animals. Read More

Acupuncture is a safe medical procedure when performed by a qualified veterinarian. Very few negative side effects have been reported in clinical cases, but they do exist. Patients may seem slightly worse for up to 48 hours after a treatment. Other animals can become lethargic or sleepy for up to 24 hours. These effects are an indication that some physiological changes are developing, and they are most often followed by an improvement in the animal’s condition. However, acupuncture is NOT a replacement for conventional veterinary medicine. The best effects come from having an accurate medical diagnosis before treatment.
It is recommended NOT to ride for 24 hours after a treatment as they may be more sore or lethargic. After that you can resume normal riding. They can be turned out and follow their regular routine otherwise.
We recommend scheduling your appointment at least 3 days prior to your event. This will give your equine companion time after their treatment to relax and recover for at least 24 hours.
No. Although a small number of horses may be sore after their treatment it is not usually needed after a routine acupuncture or chiropractic visit. Every horse reacts to acupuncture treatments differently. Rarely, you may also see a worsening in the issue being addressed for 24-48hrs after treatment.
