Acupuncture is an effective and ancient healing method that dates back to prehistoric China and is widely used throughout Asia to relieve a myriad of painful conditions. Pet owners may be surprised to learn that veterinarian acupuncture is also an intense field of study, and one for which our own Dr. Mark Bianchi has been officially certified. He completed his training with the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society (IVAS) during the academic year of 2007-2008, and continues his education with several additional hours of training each year. Dr. Bianchi has been able to relieve many dogs, cats and other small pets here in Edmond from numerous health problems through the practice of acupuncture.
