Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese medicine that involves the use of special acupuncture needles applied to specific points on the body. These needles, when used alone or in conjunction with Western medicine, can be used to illicit a healing response to problems such as pain, inflammation paralysis and allergies. Acupuncture is safe and virtually painless for your pet. Dr. Kelly Roy is proud to provide this service for our clients.
Skin issues can be difficult for our pets. The skin is the bodies largest organ, and can be affected by many things including allergies & parasites.

We offer medical imaging to aid in the diagnosis of many different conditions. Radiographs and ultrasound are both painless and noninvasive ways to evaluate organs and bones allowing us to better understand what is occurring in a pet’s body. In some cases, medical imaging can detect conditions and situations that may otherwise have gone undetected for months or years. Our state-of-the-art radiology and ultrasound are conducted by our trained and compassionate staff, making it both safe and effective.
Laser Therapy is a drug free, pain free, surgery free treatment option. Laser therapy utilizes specific wavelengths of light to create therapeutic effects such as, improved healing time, pain reduction, and decreased swelling. This option is available for the treatment of many types of issues including osteoarthritis, soft tissue injury, and chronic wounds. Improvement is seen over a period of several treatments, although improvement seen with only one or two treatments is not unlikely. Patients typically express greater comfort and mobility within a day after receiving laser treatment.
Laser therapy treatment requires no patient sedation or restraint which creates a more relaxing treatment environment. Laser therapy is often used with other forms of therapy including drug therapy and acupuncture. All laser therapy is performed by our K-laser certified technicians.
