Post Surgery Acupuncture for Pets


Post-Op Surgery
Acupuncture can help your pet's recovery!

There are many benefits of using acupuncture after surgery, all which aid in helping your pet heal faster, reduce pain and it may even help cut its recovery time in half.
Clinical studies have shown that acupuncture treatments before and after surgery significantly reduced pain and the use of painkillers.
Acupuncture has been proven to:
·        Reduce pain and inflammation
·        Promote circulation
·        Release endorphins
·        Boost the immune system
·        Minimize drug side-effects
·        Decrease stress
·        Reduce scarring


For post-surgical patients at Our Family Veterinary Services all sessions include a combination of acupuncture, laser therapy and acupressure for maximum benefits. http://www.fourpawsacupuncture.com/services.html
In conjunction with acupuncture, there are also a few excellent Chinese herbal formulas, liniments and homeopathic remedies that reduce pain and inflammation while speeding up the healing process.
To learn more how acupuncture and traditional Chinese Medicine can help your pet before or after surgery or to schedule a session with licensed acupuncturist Jeanie Mossa MS. L.Ac. at Our Family Veterinary Services in Peabody please visit the Four Paws Acupuncture website.

Cinnamon for Dogs






Cinnamon aka Rou Gui
  has been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine as a warming herb for the channels and joints. Used for arthritic symptoms in knees, elbows, hips and back that are made worse during cold damp winter days.


Cinnamon Meatballs for Dogs

Here is a meatball recipe for your dog with warming cinnamon for those dogs affected by cold damp winter days. 

NOTE: Please do not add onion to this recipe as onion is toxic for dogs. 

Cinnamon Meatballs for Dogs

  • 1/2 pound of free range/organic ground chicken or turkey
  • 1/4 cup of shredded carrots (optional)
  • 3 tablespoons of fresh or dried parsley (great for dog breath) 
  • 1 teaspoon of salt 
  • 1/8 cup of Parmesan cheese 
  • 1 egg (leave out if the dog is allergic to chicken.) 
  • 1 tablespoon of cinnamon 
This can be made for people too!

I am trained in traditional Chinese medicine which includes herbal medicine, acupuncture, acupressure, nutrition and lifestyle changes. Combined these therapies can make a difference in your pet's health. (And yours too!)
