Many pet owners are skeptical of pursuing pet acupuncture because they worry it may be painful or ineffective for their pets. According to the Chi Institute, however, this procedure has a multitude of benefits, including pain relief, the promotion of tissue healing, regulation of gastrointestinal motility, immunoregulation, antifebrile effects, and reproductive and hormone regulation.
The goal of acupuncture in pets is to stimulate the body to heal itself. It improves blood circulation and stimulates the nervous system, aiding the release of anti-inflammatory and pain-relief hormones. This process has also been shown to assist in the removal of metabolic toxins and waste.
At Cherryville Animal Hospital, we are experienced in cat and dog acupuncture therapy and can safely perform the procedure. Call us to schedule an appointment for your pet or to find out more about our vet acupuncture services to enhance the healing process throughout your pet’s body.

According to the American Veterinary Dental Society, more than 80% of dogs and 70% of cats have dental disease by the age of 3. Dental disease can be very uncomfortable for pets and the longer it is left untreated, the more complicated and expensive it becomes to treat.

At Cherryville Animal Hospital, we conduct a thorough oral exam during each wellness visit and are equipped to treat periodontal disease if we identify a cause for concern. We highly recommend you have a veterinarian evaluate your pet’s dental health at least once a year even if your pet is not demonstrating symptoms.

If your pet is demonstrating symptoms such as vomiting, diarrhea, weight loss, abdominal pain or swelling or loss of appetite we may recommend an endoscopy. The purpose of an endoscopy procedure is to explore the esophagus, stomach, small intestine and colon in order to diagnose gastrointestinal disease. If an abnormality is detected during the procedure, a biopsy sample may be collected for further analysis. If your pet is demonstrating these symptoms, call us to discuss your options.
