How do I make an appointment?
What patients do you see?
While I see all dogs and cats for any conditions that can be helped by rehabilitation and acupuncture, I focus on pain management and mobility to improve the quality of life in middle-aged to senior/geriatric patients with chronic arthritis or other painful conditions. I also focus on patients with neurologic conditions to help regain functional mobility.
Do I need a referral from my primary veterinarian?
What are your payment options?
Payment is expected at the time of service by credit card, cash or check.
Many pet insurance plans cover rehabilitation, laser and acupuncture treatments! Check with your insurance company for more details.
What happens during the initial consultation?
A full physical, neurologic and myofascial exam will be performed. An individualized treatment plan will be discussed with you and initial treatments will be performed. If indicated, a personalized home exercise program and other lifestyle modifications and home care options will be discussed as well. This session usually takes about 75-90 minutes. Dr. Kori will email a report to your family veterinarian about the examination and treatment plan after the visit.
Do you perform general veterinary services?
No, Grey Paws Acupuncture and Rehabilitation services are limited to acupuncture and rehabilitation only. You will need to continue seeing your family veterinarian for any routine or emergency veterinary care.
Do animals really tolerate acupuncture treatments? Isn't it painful?
I use treats to keep your pet occupied while the needles are placed. Most animals don't notice the needle placement, although a few are more sensitive and need some distraction. If an animal doesn't tolerate needles (which is a very rare occurrence), laser acutherapy can be performed as a substitution. Once the needles are in place, most animals relax. Laser therapy is also very relaxing for our pets. After a few sessions, most animals get excited about their treatments and love their sessions!
Can you perform acupuncture and rehabilitation on cats?
How many follow-up treatments will my pet need?
