Pet Acupuncture Coming to Mt. Airy, Andorra

Two Northwest vets are expanding their services to include pet acupuncture.

As a veterinary doctor, Dr. Micki Mooney is available for surgeries, routine wellness vists and medical patient visits in animals; all the things one usually takes their pet to the vet for.

However, Dr. Mooney offers a service that is a little less common: veterinary acupuncture.

Dr. Mooney will be offering this service at both the Mr. Airy Animal Hospital and the Andorra Veterinary Clinic.

Dr. Mooney, a New Jersey native, attended Rutgers University, where she received a BS in Animal Science with a minor in economics.  She earned her VMD from the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine in 2008. Just prior joining the Mt Airy Animal Hospital and Andorra Veterinary Clinic, she was a practicing veterinarian and chief of staff for Banfield Pet Hospital in New Jersey.  

She is currently a member of the American Animal Hospital Association, American Veterinary Medical Association and the American Academy of Veterinary Acupuncture.

How informative. Did you talk to Dr. Mooney? Who is the second vet offering this service? What are the benefits of pet acupuncture? Is it for all pets, or just dogs and cats?

I do believe the vet will be seeing patients out of two offices/locations rather than there being two vets. Acupuncture and the benefits are documented and range widely; allergy relief, joint pain relief, stress relief just to name a few.

Thanks Catherine. I just wish as a journalist, Nate could provide me with this information.
