We are pleased to have Dr. Kristi Crosier offering veterinary acupuncture for our patients. Dr. Crosier is a graduate of the North Carolina State University College of Veterinary Medicine and received her acupuncture training from The Chi Institute in Florida. She feels strongly that acupuncture can be used in addition to traditional medicine to enhance the health and happiness of our pets. Working with our veterinarians, she strives to improve the quality of life of pets.
Some of the effects of acupuncture include pain relief, anti-inflammatory effects, promotion of tissue healing, regulation of gastrointestinal motility, and immunoregulation. Some of the conditions acupuncture is recommended for include musculoskeletal problems, neurologial disorders, gastrointestinal disorders, and a number of chronic conditions.
Acupuncture is a very safe medical procedure when administered by a qualified practitioner. Dr. Crosier asks you to be present for your pet’s treatments, but understands that is not possible in all cases. She highly recommended that you be with your pet for the first visit. The first appointment is usually longer, taking about 45 minutes. Subsequent treatments usually take 20 to 30 minutes. Results may be immediate but sometimes are not seen until several treatments have been completed.
If you would like to schedule an appointment, please call Falconbridge Animal Hospital at 919-403-5591 or click here.
If you have general questions about acupuncture or wonder if your pet would benefit from acupuncture, feel free to contact Dr. Crosier directly by phone or e-mail at 919-446-1838 or DrCrosier@JingWellVet.com.
