Initial evaluation, consultation and acupuncture: $145
The initial appointment takes about 2 hours. We go over in detail your pet's history including current and past concerns, as well as any prior medical records, labwork or imaging. A full physical examination and treatment plan will be performed and discussed with you prior to initiating any treatment. The exam fee includes the first acupuncture treatment, including electroacupuncture, aquapuncture or moxa if needed.
Recheck appointment with acupuncture: $95
Recheck appointments with acupuncture generally take about 1-2 hours, depending on the situation and whether we need to add laser treatment. As with the initial consultation, the recheck exam fee includes any acupuncture treatments needed, such as electroacupuncture, aquapuncture or moxa.
Laser/LLLT treatment: $45
Laser therapy is added on to acupuncture therapy for those patients with painful or inflammatory conditions. This relaxes the patient, relieves pain, and enhances the result from the acupuncture treatment. For the unusual patient who cannot tolerate needles, or for those people who only wish to pursue laser therapy for their pets, laser treatment is included in the price of the appointment fee if no acupuncture treatment is performed.
Herbal formulas: (variable)
The cost of herbal therapy depends on several factors, including the size of the patient, how many formulas are needed, and how long the patient will need to be taking the formula. As a general reference, one herbal formula to treat a large dog for 3-4 months may cost around $95-$120. Smaller patients can be treated for much less. For long-term use, herbs can be purchased in larger quantity to save on cost. Most of the time I recommend simply adding the powder to the food, which is the easiest and most economical option, but herbs can also be purchased pre-encapsulated for slightly higher cost.
Service area and travel fees: (variable)
