Acupuncture is the insertion of fine needles into the patients body to relieve symptoms of disease or promote well being. It has been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for thousands of years. Under UK law the act of acupuncture can only be performed by a Registered Veterinary Surgeon.
Before acupuncture is given your pet will be examined to assess the condition being treated. As we at Herbal Vet Scotland believe in holistic practice we will assess more than just the presenting complaint and look at things like diet too. Patient response can vary, however, many animals become relaxed and even fall asleep. Acupuncture can be used to inhibit pain pathways and can also cause the release of hormones and chemical messengers in the body resulting in more generalised pain relief.
If you think that your pet could benefit from acupuncture or would like to discuss their condition further please contact Herbal Vet Scotland on 0141 423 8633.
Our vets are qualified in both the western approach to acupuncture and hold a diploma in traditional Chinese acupuncture through the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society.

Herbs are complex organisms, containing many natural chemicals, which we utilise to help the body function optimally.
All of the herbs we use at Herbal Vet Scotland are the highest possible grade and quality. We have our purpose built, on-site herbal dispensary where we carry a wide array of herbal products. We only use ethical products- either wild harvested or organically grown.
We believe in a treatment plan tailored to the individuals needs- after carrying out a thorough examination we select an array of herbs to suit your animals needs and blend them into a tailor made mix, specifically for them.
They can be given internally as teas, tinctures, dried herbs and capsules or externally as ointments, creams, teas or gels.
Herbs are used to help maintain optimal health within the body. Health is not merely an absence of disease, but the proper functioning of all the body systems, working synergistically together.

"We have been going to Jordan and Reagan for nearly three years. We get acupuncture regularly and take some herbal remedies and supplements. We also moved to a raw food diet and can honestly say we have never felt better. We are now eleven, but feel years younger, everyone we meet thinks we look great for our age, modesty, of course, prevents us from agreeing!
We are now attending their beautiful new premises which are fantastic - lovely and relaxing. Mum and Dad are always saying we are so lucky to have such great facilities and care - think they might be jealous.We would certainly recommend Herbal Vet Scotland, we love our visits."
