Acupuncture Combining Traditional & Holistic Medicine for Your Pet Since 1978


Helping Your Pet Feel Their Best

At American Animal Hospital, we proudly offer Acupuncture performed by Dr. Brian Voynick. Dr. Brian Voynick has completed rigorous coursework and passed examinations by the American Academy of Veterinary Acupuncturist Association. Acupuncture therapy has been used for over 3000 years on people and has been effectively treating pets of all shapes and sizes for the last few decades. We tailor your pets acupuncture treatment after a comprehensive physical exam, detailed history, and an assessment of neurological and musculoskeletal systems.

We use Acupuncture as a sole treatment or in conjunction with traditional medicine. This helps us to treat a large variety of illnesses or conditions your pet may have. View the short video below that includes information about acupuncture for pets. You can see from the video, that the treatment is well tolerated. Some pets even fall asleep during their treatment. So you may ask yourself, “How would my pet benefit from acupuncture?” Acupuncture enhances blood flow around the local area where the needles are placed. When the needles are placed, they release anti-inflammatory molecules from the brain and helps to support the nervous system. Acupuncture is beneficial in a variety of ways: It promotes relaxation, soothes muscle and bone pain, and helps to improve mobility.
