Pet Acupuncture

Story of Success in Acupuncture:

Our patient Bitka experienced hind leg paralysis from intervertebral disc disease. The owners did not want to have surgery performed. Dr. Schmidt performed Acupuncture and Cold Laser therapy twice a week for 3 weeks, then once a week for 3 weeks, then once a month for 2 months. Rehab was performed in her wheel chair. She was able to walk by 4 weeks into the treatment and she made a full recovery! She did have a second episode of paralysis and she was again treated with acupuncture and Laser, and was again walking after week 1.

Bitka continues to love coming into the clinic for her sessions, when needed and just to say hello! She still wants to get in her wheelchair even though she does not need it anymore!
