Dr Annette Randall BVETMED DMS MRCVS has a particular interest in complementary therapies and has had good results with acupuncture and laser therapy, so she offers this as part of her mobile vet services.
Acupuncture and laser therapy can be used for a wide variety of conditions as with humans. The main reason for its use in animals is for pain relief, in addition to conventional treatment or as a replacement.
Some older animals are unable to withstand the side effects of some medications. Acupuncture and laser treatment can provide pain management without side effects.
Dr Randall has treated many animals using acupuncture - from dogs, cats, hamsters and birds - with good results.
