Acupuncture is one of the four branches of traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine. It is a tool that can be used in conjunction with conventional medicine to improve your pets quality of life in many disease processes, and also in preventative medicine. The most common uses of acupuncture in veterinary medicine are pain management and anxiety, but acupuncture is also very useful in many chronic internal medicine diseases. Acupuncture involves the insertion of thin sterile needles into specific points on the body in order to cause a therapeutic effect. Ninety-five percent of patients are comfortable with this therapy, and due to the relaxation effect, some animals will actually fall asleep during their acupuncture treatment.
Bathing and Grooming
Our caring healthcare team will lather your pet in luxury with high quality veterinary approved shampoos. Our special, cleansing baths remove dirt, debris and odors – but won’t remove your pet’s topical flea control. Services also include nail trim, ear cleaning, and anal gland expression. We are also a flea free facility so your pet will receive a complimentary capstar tablet during his or her stay with us.
We offer grooming services at our Carolina Beach Animal Hospital on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. Our groomer, Hillary Spaziano, has been grooming for over 10 years. She has a special way of building trust with our clients and their pets. Want to build your kitties confidence, then get a lions cut to tame that mane! We have everything from a basic bathing package to full grooming packages. We even offer a pampered puppy package for your precious babies. Ask a receptionist about adding the Pampered Pet Spa Package, and make it a perfect day for your companion!
We offer boarding for both dogs and cats. Separate dog and cat wards are maintained to keep your furry friends relaxed. We understand that pets are like our children – we feed, nurture and lavish attention on them. Our highly qualified kennel attendants do the same when you can’t be there. We provide tender loving care (such as brushing and cuddling), and supervised outdoor playtime to keep them happy and active. We are a flea free facility so your pet will be provided with a complimentary capstar tablet on the day of arrival and once again before going home.
Microchips have helped reunite thousands of pets with their families. We offer the HomeAgain microchip products to increase the chances of a safe recovery.
