Emily Parr BVSc MRCVS is a member of the Association of British Veterinary Acupuncturists (ABVA). The ABVA ‘maintains standards of education, ethics, practice and discipline to ensure the health and wellbeing of animals in the UK’.
Emily has completed the foundation course in Veterinary Acupuncture, enabling her to become a member of this organisation.
Pain is the most common reason for acupuncture, and Emily most commonly sees animals that have chronic pain from arthritis. Most animals will tolerate acupuncture well and often even enjoy the sessions, which last from 5-30 minutes depending on each individual case.
Emily will be happy to have an initial consultation with you and your pet to discuss whether acupuncture may be something suitable for your pet. Acupuncture is now recognised as a very successful treatment for many conditions, and the majority of insurance companies will cover the costs of acupuncture.
