Did you know that co-owner Dr. Tina Johnson (who has been with Newberg Vet for over 17 years) became a Certified Pet Acupuncturist in 2006? For your convenience, Dr. Johnson is available to treat your pets with acupuncture at the clinic.
So, how exactly does pet acupuncture work?
Acupuncture helps the body heal itself. This ancient Chinese practice utilizes hair-thin needles to stimulate the body’s nerve centers, improving blood circulation and releasing pain-relieving hormones. This virtually painless process relaxes muscle tissue and oxygenates the surrounding area, allowing the body to heal more rapidly.
