veterinary acupunctureWe are pleased to announce that Dr. Ortiz will now be practicing veterinary acupuncture. As a result, Fresh Pond Animal Hospital will begin offering veterinary acupuncture services to clients beginning in August 2015.

Our goal is to work together to help manage patients where acupuncture and/or herbal medicine will be of benefit. Acupuncture is the stimulation of specific points on the body to cause a desired healing effect. It is a means of helping the body heal itself. It is not a cure-all, but it works well to treat certain ailments. It can be used alone or in combination with traditional veterinary medicine.

Veterinary acupuncture has been shown to be effective in treating many diseases including but not limited to:

  • Skin conditions 
  • Respiratory 
  • Reproductive problems
  • Musculoskeletal disease 
  • Gastrointestinal problems 
  • Neurologic conditions
