Important Pender Emergency Room Update 5/5/2022 

Until further notice, our Emergency Room will be open 24/7 on select days starting 5/1/2022.

Please remember to call us if you and your pet are in need of medical assistance. If our facility is at capacity, our evening and overnight team has access to the status of other local emergency rooms and can better serve you if you call first to discuss your pet’s needs.


Acupuncture is the treatment of conditions or symptoms by the insertion of very fine needles into specific points on the body in order to produce a response. In veterinary medicine, there is evidence of the success of acupuncture for treating disorders of the reproductive, musculoskeletal, neurologic, pulmonary, gastrointestinal and dermatologic systems. The most common conditions that are treated include traumatic nerve injuries, intervertebral disk disease, degenerative myelopathy, and chronic pain such as that caused by arthritis and degenerative joint disease. Acupuncture stimulates the healing of some conditions and provides effective pain relief in others. Acupuncture is a complementary medicine that can be combined with other types of veterinary medicine.

We are happy to offer the following services to assist in the health and maintenance of your pet:

  • Dry needling- a series of fine needles placed on a pet’s acupoints
  • Electro-acupuncture- involves fine needles with an electrical current
  • Aqua-acupuncture- the injection of a sterile medium into a pet’s acupoints

    Before scheduling your pet’s Acupuncture appointment, please speak with your veterinarian.
