Here at Bicester Vets we are very pleased to announce that we are going have a veterinary acupuncturist visiting the practice for weekly clinics.
Katie Giles is a veterinary surgeon who qualified as a vet in 2006 in California. She is also a qualified veterinary acupuncturist and one of only a few vets in the UK that has been trained by the international veterinary acupuncture society which is why we are so excited that she has chosen Bicester Vets for her clinics.
Katie says “I enjoy being able to offer another treatment modality for people’s pets and love the well-rounded approach to maintaining health and well-being.”
Acupuncture is a well-established, evidence-based treatment modality in human medicine where it has been found to be very helpful in the management of chronic pain in a variety of different conditions. Evidence also now suggests that acupuncture can also benefit our veterinary patients especially those with chronically painful conditions like osteoarthritis.
If you would like more information on these acupuncture clinics or wonder if they may benefit your pet please contact the practice.
I have used Bicester vets for years and have found both staff and vets just wonderful. Reception staff are always helpful and caring. As for the vets and their patience and dedication, along with a welcome smile and sensitive manner, Bicester vets is just amazing and I would happily recommend them to anyone wishing for a caring and compassionate approach.
They are always willing to explain things thoroughly and where options for treatment are available for your pet, this too is explained in detail. I don’t have a car and my cat who gets very stressed being put in a cat carrier I request a home visit whenever she has been unwell – They never question this, nor make you feel guilty for asking for one, and this is invaluable to me.
Excellent team of vets!
