Albavet’s acupuncture clinic operates from our branch in Dunfermline and is one of only a very few such facilities available in Scotland. We decided to offer this referral service as traditional acupuncture therapies are increasingly integrating with mainstream veterinary treatment.
We can recommend acupuncture to treat a wide variety of conditions but we have found it especially effective in conditions associated with sore joints and arthritis. It can also help to reduce the size of some skin warts and promote healing of lick granulomas.
Our acupuncture and pain relief veterinarian
Albavet are pleased to welcome vet Amy Greenhill who took over the acupuncture clinics from 1st September. Clinics are currently being held on Sundays in Dunfermline due to Covid 19 restrictions. Appointments and more information can be accessed by calling any of the practices. The practice will contact Amy who will then contact the client.
Amy will also be working occasionally with as a locum vet.
Conditions which may benefit from acupuncture include
- Generalised stiffness.
- Osteoarthritis – of many joints especially hips, stifles and elbows.
- Spinal spondylosis.
- Cruciate disease.
- Post-operative wound healing.
- Poor liver function.
- Some skin complaints.
Where possible it’s important that a diagnosis has been made pre-referral. When you have a diagnosis you can make an appointment for initial assessment and first treatment with Jane. Alternatively you are welcome to call Jane to discuss options. We usually plan four weekly sessions and then follow up with monthly top-ups if required.
Most insurance companies now include acupuncture but it is advisable to check.
