Integrative treatment options for your pet
Acupuncture is an ancient (at least 4000 year-old) healing tradition based on rebalancing mind, body and spirit for improved wellness.
However, acupuncture is just a part of overall wellness. Acupuncture alone, isolated from a whole foods diet, Chinese herbs and an exercise regimen is of limited value. In fact, the other 3 branches are arguably more significant. Diet, herbs, exercise and supplements are part of everyday care, whereas acupuncture is a once every week to 4 week complement to what you are already doing at home between treatments.
Acupuncture appointments are available at Orchard Grove Animal Hospital in scenic Warwick, New York. Appointments are available Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.
For your convenience, you can now request appointments with Dr. Shultz online.

Interested in trying out acupuncture for your pet, but still a little unsure if your pet will tolerate or benefit from the needles?
Come try it out at one of the bimonthly acupuncture clinics at Warwick Valley Humane Society.
The clinics are the second Sunday of every other month (January, March, May, July, September and November in 2015). The cost is $25 for a brief 25 minute acupuncture session. All proceeds benefit the homeless animals at Warwick Humane Valley Humane Society.
I am often asked by well-meaning pet parents if it is a good idea to use their own supplements for their pets. And, I love that people are looking for safe, gentle, non-toxic options to improve their pets’ energy, vitality and health. So, I recommend using products that are safe and effective for cats and dogs and carefully formulated to meet their unique needs. The following are veterinary herbal and nutraceutical companies that I have been dealing with for years and whose products I use for my own pets.
