What to Expect

Once you have made an appointment, Turning Point will arrive at your home and/or barn with all the necessary equipment. This ensures your pet is in a comfortable space and with fewer distractions and anxiety than visiting the vets office. The initial visit will include a brief physical, neurological, lameness, and myofascial (tissue and muscle) exam. After these assessments, your pet will receive their first acupuncture and/or chiropractic treatment. The main focus of this visit is obtaining a complete and accurate medical diagnosis, setting up a treatment plan, and starting a treatment course without damaging a future positive relationship with your pet.  Follow up treatments may be needed based on individual needs.

Laser Therapy

Also called "photobiomodulation", laser therapy uses specific wavelengths of light to create therapeutic effects. With this laser device light interacts with tissues at the cellular level to increase circulation, stimulate celllular regeneration and increase cellular function. Laser therapy as many similar effects as acupuncture, but is completely non-invasive.

     - Osteoarthritis

     - Muscle strains

     - Tendon/Ligament Strains

     - Wound healing

     - Neck/Back Pain

     - Nerve regeneration


Similar to acupuncture, improvement can be seen after the first treatment, but most patient require a few treatments before significant results are visible. 


Is it safe?

Laser therapy is one of the safest non-invasive therapies that we have today. No restraint or sedation is needed for your pet to receive this treatment. As with acupuncture most animals enjoy the calming effect and will sit quietly for their treatment.
