ACUPUNCTURE

Omen the dog having apuncture treatment for arthritis and hip dysplasia

"My dog Omen is an 11 year old Border Collie who developed arthritis in his hips about 2 years ago.  We tried laser treatments, underwater treadmills and pain killers.  Nothing seemed to work well or have long lasting effects.  I decided to try Acupuncture, Chinese Herbs and a new diet.  He now acts like he did when he was much younger.  If you have any doubts, put them aside and try Acupuncture with Dr. Judy. It really is like a miracle.  Thank you Dr. Judy!"  B.G - Naperville    

Why choose Acupuncture?

Dog having acupuncture for poor appetite and pancreatitis

Acupuncture helps the body heal itself by balancing the deficiency states that exist in disease.  It can be used to treat multiple problems at the same time (great for elderly patients), all with NO SIDE EFFECTS!  It helps relieve pain by stimulating blood flow to diseased areas and helps tissues heal.  It stregthens the immune system  and has anti-inflammatory effects.  

Acupuncture can be used to treat problems traditional western medicine has no treatment for, or the treatment doesn't work well (especially neurologic problems).

Acupuncture is great for arthritis, hip and elbow dysplasia, hindleg weakness, back or neck problems, Intervertebral Disk Disease, parlysis, seizures, kidney disease, vomiting and diarrhea, allergies, storm phobias, Doggie Alzheimers, lack or appetite and Degenerative Myelopathy.

Kitten relaxing during Acupuncture

"In December of 2020 Frisky, our male Shih Tzu, and an important member of our family had a terrible accident.  Frisky was laying on the bed, jumped off the bed and landed on his front paws and neck.  The next morning Frisky could not move or walk.  He was totally immobilized.  We took him to our Veterinarian (Bethany Animal Hospital) where X-rays and blood work were done.  Due to the traumatic nature of his injury we took him to VCA Arboretum View Animal Hospital in Downer's Grove for a MRI of his spine.  The MRI cost was high, but we decided to go ahead with the testing because Frisky (at over 10 yrs of age)  was an important part of our family and still had so much life to live.  The MRI found marked spinal cord compression at C2-C3.  Surgery was recommended, but we thought it would be too much for him at his advanced age.  We brought Frisky to Dr Judy McBeth at Fox Ridge Veterinary  Clinic for Acupuncture.  Acupuncture helped the damaged nerves heal and Frisky fought for 3 months to overcome his injury.  When Frisky began moving better we took him for Physical Therapy at Canine Physical Rehab.  With the combination of Acupuncture and Physical Therapy Frisky began walking normally again!  Frisky has so much more energy now, and is even more vocal!  We are forever grateful for the Veterinarians and Physical Therapists who helped our Frisky walk again!"   J.D   - Sycamore, IL
