For pet parents who are interested in integrative and holistic veterinary medicine, Personalized Veterinary House Calls & Rehabilitation offers acupuncture on a mobile basis in the Ann Arbor and Detroit, Michigan areas. Acupuncture is an animal rehabilitation technique that uses needles and sometimes electricity (percutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) to stimulate the nervous system at neurovascular intersections. Endorphins and other neurotransmitters are released, which causes a physiological response in our dog and cat patients. In addition to helping preserve nerve function in our patients with degenerative neurological disease, acupuncture can be useful for treating chronic pain. In veterinary acupuncture, common conditions treated include osteoarthritis, degenerative myelopathy, intervertebral disc disease, muscle spasm, and idiopathic facial nerve paralysis. The in home environment very well suits this animal rehabilitation modality.
The first acupuncture appointment typically lasts about 1 hour to ensure we attend to all of your cat or dog’s needs. An in-depth myofasical exam will be performed. As with all of services, we provide direct doctor communication to our clients. To learn more about Dr. Verma's experience and qualifications, please click here.
