Cat & Dog Acupuncturist in Oxford

Acupuncture is a form of Eastern medicine that can be used as a complement to Western medicine. At Bottletree Animal Hospital, we are proud to have a cat and dog acupuncturist on staff to help our patients feel their best and begin the healing process. We understand that sometimes this technique makes some people feel skeptical—we were in the same boat at first!—but we have been astounded by the results we’ve seen in so many patients that we have to share them with you. Call us today at (662) 234-4336.


What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is the art of placing needles into certain points on the body in order to cause the release of endorphins or the release of pressure on certain other points. Many people mistakenly believe that acupuncture is only meant to reduce pain, and while that is a great use of this modality, it can also do so much more! Acupuncture can be used to treat a variety of health conditions including:

  • Allergies
  • Anxiety
  • Autoimmune conditions
  • Cancer
  • Chronic ear infections
  • Constipation
  • Diarrhea
  • Itchiness
  • Seizures
  • Vomiting
  • …and more!

We treat our patients primarily with traditional medicine, adding acupuncture as a unique veterinary tool that many general practitioners do not have available at their practices. We often have patients referred to us from other veterinarians in order to take advantage of our cat and dog acupuncturist.

Acupuncture has been shown to significantly improve the patient’s quality of life. In our many years of offering this service, we have seen very few pets fail to experience some improvement in their health and well-being as a result of acupuncture. This is one of the reasons we believe in it so much!

My owner, Mark Mark Burson, was kind enough to share your most thoughtful note with me today. I don’t have my own email address, so I am left to the mercy of my owner’s willingness to pass along kind words that pertain to me. I do so much appreciate them. I must say when I first learned we would be visiting you, I was skeptical. Yes — for sometime I had noticed soreness in my hind quarters and the nightly trips up the house stairs to spend the night with my owner and the early morning return trips to ground level were becoming increasing difficult. And yet the thought of leaving my owner’s side even for an evening was too much for me to bear, so I dutifully followed our nightly and morning routine.  Really — acupuncture? I don’t think my owner would employ acupuncture on himself so when he told me about this treatment plan, I didn’t know what to think. Thank goodness our good friend Angie Avery and her beloved Hallie led us to you. I did not have the pleasure of knowing Hallie but I hear she was a great dog and I am comforted to learn that her final days were peaceful  I am pretty good at reading people and so when we entered your facility, I immediately had good feelings. Not knowing what to expect, my excitement grew as I met additional members of your staff. They are all great dog people! And then I met you and I was all in. From the first needle, I started to feel relief. Over the course of my monthly treatments, the soreness in my hips abated and I found myself returning to activities I had given up.  That first week, I remember jumping up on the living room sofa for a much needed nap. I was so deep in sleep, that when my owner returned, I was still on the couch. At first, I thought I was in trouble, but I quickly realized my owner was pleased that I had returned to an old behavior.  And, I even find myself playing with our new family addition — Rebel — a blue merle female Aussie — who has an unquestionable desire to play. My cousin — Rosie — another female black tri — doesn’t have the patience for Rebel so I am Rebel’s go to play toy. But thanks to you — I don’t mind.  My owner’s wife comes into town next week and we are all going to check schedules and see when I can come in for a teeth cleaning. Rosie needs her teeth cleaned as well. And one of these days, I am sure you will meet Rebel — what a piece of work.  Anyway — I wanted you to hear my thoughts directly from the horse’s mouth. Thank you again and we all look forward to seeing you and your family soon.

All the best, Sky
