Veterinary Acupuncture at Paradise Animal Hospital in Catonsville

Treat Your Pets’ Chronic Issues & Provide Them with Relief

We are happy to add acupuncture to the services we offer to our canine and feline patients at Paradise Animal Hospital. Acupuncture is the insertion of very thin, sterile needles through the skin at biologically relevant points in the body.

Acupuncture works through a variety of pathways; some acupuncture points follow channels alongside major nerves or blood vessels, while other points exist where nerves enter or exit bone or muscle. Through these points, acupuncture can access a variety of biological mechanisms, including those in the central and peripheral nervous system, to regulate pain and help the body heal and balance itself.

Acupuncture can be an invaluable tool in managing both chronic and acute pain, orthopedic issues, and neurologic issues, such as disk disease and lumbosacral stenosis in cats. However, the range of conditions that can be treated is broad and includes internal conditions such as chronic kidney failure and inflammatory disorders. Dr. Amy Twardzik is a certified veterinary medical acupuncturist (cVMA) and she completed her training through the Medical Acupuncture for Veterinarians program in Ft. Collins, Colorado.
