At AcuVet we practise Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM).  TCVM encompasses a wide variety of medicine practises including acupuncture, herbal medicine, Tui Na, Food Therapy, and exercise.  In Western society acupuncture is by far the most common of these, but other treatment concepts can be just as valuable to your pet.

TCVM offers a natural approach to your pets’ health with minimal side effects.  It aims to help the body heal itself by correcting imbalances and restoring energy flow.

If you have any questions regarding TCVM, or if you are unsure if this is the right choice for your pet, please do not hesitate to call Carolin.
