What are your payment options?

Do you perform general veterinary services?
No, Grey Paws Acupuncture and Rehabilitation services are limited to acupuncture, rehabilitation and spinal manipulative therapies only. You will need to continue seeing your family veterinarian for any routine or emergency veterinary care.
What happens during the initial consultation?
When evaluating a patient for the first time, a full physical, neurologic, and myofascial exam will be performed. After these examinations are completed, an individualized treatment plan will be discussed with you. If indicated, initial treatments will be performed. This session usually takes about 75-90 minutes.
For routine orthopedic Post-Operative Care, an initial personalized home care plan will be sent with you at the first visit.
There is often a lot of information to discuss at the initial consultation. As such, some treatments may be scheduled for follow-ups. In addition, due to the the complexity and chronic nature of most of the conditions that Grey Paws treats, a personalized home exercise program and other lifestyle modifications and home care options are often more thoroughly discussed during follow-up visits.
Dr. Kori will email a report to your family veterinarian about the examination and treatment plan after the visit.
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!
