As a pet sitting company, we LOVE to talk about animals and animal wellness.
In our opinion, finding the right balance between emergency treatment and prevention is one of the important elements of pet wellness. In another aspect, combining Western medicine with Eastern can also carry positive outcomes for our pets.
Today, we’d love to talk about Dr. Cheryl Wood who offers pet acupuncture in Dallas along with many other services. Knowing these things could be very beneficial for everyone: pets and pet owners both.
Born and raised in North Texas, Dr. Cheryl Wood offers acupuncture, aquapuncture, herbal remedies, dry needling, and electroacupuncture. She treats all pets, including horses.
Tui na, a special Chinese massage technique, will be available in early 2023.
Dr. Wood knows firsthand the benefits of combining Eastern and Western medicine to achieve synergistic health interest in your pet. She previously worked for Dallas Vet Specialists as an internist. She knows a lot about general practices, especially the specialty clinics.
“I am fascinated by the number of disorders that acupuncture can treat,” said Dr. Wood. “I have a special place in my heart, however, for the geriatric and palliative care sector.”
Dr. Wood also works full-time for Oncura Partners as a radiologist reading ultrasounds on dogs and cats.
“I’ve always wanted to be a vet since I was five years old,” said Dr. Wood. “As my babies have aged I have been able to implement alternative treatment modalities and improve quality of life where Western medicine seemed to fall short.”
Pets Success Stories
Zooey is a female Shepherd mix who was hit by a car when she was a puppy. She had a femur fracture at six months. After two surgeries, she now has severe knee arthritis. She can’t take traditional pain medication given to most dogs due to elevated liver values. Zooey receives acupuncture with the electro unit and Vitamin B12 injections every two weeks along with herbals. She absolutely loves her sessions and lays down ready to go once she sees the needles.
Echo, a ten-year-old male Boxer, is another happy fur client. He has neurologic signs and difficulty walking with all four legs. His treatment consists of dry needling and acupuncture. Intervertebral disc disease, which Echo has, is a condition that can be highly responsive to acupuncture.
Zeppelin is a 5yr neutered male shepherd mix. He chronically has had a poor appetite. The owner can hardly get him to eat, and she has switched food numerous times. Zeppelin also receives acupuncture with the electro unit and Vitamin b12 injections. He has a session about every 1-2 weeks. He currently has a fabulous appetite and is maintaining his weight!
