Certified Veterinary Acupuncturist

We provide both needle and needleless options (laser and transcutaneous electrical stimulation).

We also perform electroacupuncture and Moxa.

We use our knowledge of Traditional Chinese Medicine in conjunction with our veterinary medical and surgical knowledge to complement each other and provide the best outcomes for our patients.

Laser Therapy

How does it work?

Ani-inflammatory – prevents the release of pro-inflammatory chemicals in the body.

Accelerates healing- stimulates tissue repair by producing macrophages, fibroblasts and lymphocytes which essential for tissue healing and collagen synthesis. It promotes revascularisation (blood supply) of wounds.

Pain Relief – reduces pain by stimulating the body’s own opiates, nitric oxide and serotonin.

Therapeutic Ultrasound

Uses the energy of sound waves to heat up underlying tissue to promote blood flow, release tension and relieve pain. We also use this modality to promote the uptake and absorption of any topical medications applied to the treatment area.


Gentle exercises, movements and balancing work in clinic and for you to perform at home to help your pet recover gently and successfully, prevent muscle wasting and build up core strength following injury, surgery or chronic illness.
