Today, we dive deep into Veterinary acupuncture and Chinese herbs, exploring how these ancient practices can offer a more balanced and integrative approach to your pet's health.

Our pets are not just animals; they are cherished members of our families. When their health declines, it sends ripples through our own well-being too, right?

Can these alternative methods redefine animal healthcare, leading the way in a more balanced and natural approach?

Meet our insightful guest, Dr. Barbara, she has been a vet for over 23 years. She practiced conventional Western medicine for 12 years. When she moved to North Carolina, she was introduced to veterinary acupuncture and could immediately see the positive difference it made in the lives and outcomes of her patients. She received her certification in veterinary acupuncture in 2016. Soon after that, she left general practice to start a mobile acupuncture service. She now offers in-home acupuncture, therapeutic lasers, Chinese herbal therapy, and dietary consultations to pets in and around Charlotte, North Carolina.
