The Animal Hospital of Clemmons is very proud to be the ONLY Veterianary practice in our area to offer acupuncture as a treatment plan for your pet. While the essence of acupuncture originates in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), the practice of acupuncture readily meshes with Western medicine. For instance, if your beloved pet is suffering from degenerative joint disease for which anti-inflammatory medications are either no longer as effective or tolerable, accupuncture hasbeen proven to reduce pain and impove mobility for such condition.
Dr. Kay Long, DVM has attended a post-doctorate certification program in Veterinary Acupuncture. The program includes more than 200 hours of class time, an externship, case reports and an exam.
