Are you looking for a more holistic and natural approach to your pet's care? At Wascana Animal Hospital, Dr. Ulmer is pleased to provide traditional Chinese veterinary medical (TCVM) examinations and alternative treatment modalities such as acupuncture to her Regina and surrounding area patients.
Dr. Ulmer is a certified veterinary acupuncturist (CVA) who received her training and certification through the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society (IVAS). She practices integrative medicine by offering alternative treatment options and therapies, when indicated, in conjunction with conventional (western) medical treatment to help support your pet's health to the fullest and maximize the potential for a successful outcome.
Acupuncture treatment can include dry-needling (needles placed through the skin), electrostimulation (a low dose of electrical current passed between acupuncture needles placed through the skin), as well as aquapuncture (where a small amount of liquid is injected into the acupuncture points). Acupuncture is effective for many musculoskeletal & neurological conditions such as intervertebral disk disease (IVDD), repetitive strain injuries common in working or agility dogs, torn/damaged ligaments & tendons, nerve paralysis, and bone abnormalities (arthritis, bone cysts etc). Many other medical, behavioural and dermatological conditions also respond well to acupuncture therapy. Acupuncture may allow a patient to reduce, and in some cases even discontinue, the amount of antibiotic, steroid, pain control or other medications they require.
