“Acupuncture is something that has been almost magical for my two dogs. Our 11 year old lab Daisy has a multitude of health issues including two bad knees, IBD, allergies, and more. An acupuncture session with Dr. North helps calm her soul, allow her to rest peacefully at night, and also seems to boost her energy. Our other dog, a retired racing greyhound named Ridley, also has huge benefits from acupuncture. He has racing injuries that flare up and respond quite well to acupuncture. He also seems to get grounded and even more cuddly after a session. With both dogs sensitive to drugs, this is one of the best things you can do for your pet that will not cause any adverse reactions. No drugs, just needles and the magic they work on the little canine souls!”
“I could not have been more pleased with the great care and love that Dr. North gave to my 10-year-old boxer Chloe. Chloe had been diagnosed with Degenerative Myelopathy and spondylosis that was affecting her ability to walk and use her rear legs. However, Dr. North examined Chloe and recommended that we try a holistic approach using acupuncture along with Chloe’s current medication.
Although there is no cure for Degenerative Myelopathy, Dr. North’s acupuncture therapy slowed down the progression of Chloe’s disease and improved her quality of life.
Lastly, I cannot thank Dr. North enough for the compassion and care that she gave to Chloe during her several acupuncture sessions. Furthermore, I know without a doubt that the acupuncture treatments improved Chloe’s quality of life and it allowed us to have more precious time with our beautiful Chloe.”
Thank you from Chloe and her family,
“Last summer our 12 year old Labrador, Sammie walked across the living room floor and collapsed. Her hind legs gave out on her. We were up in northern Michigan and a quick trip to the vet came back with a scary diagnoses. Sammie had ruptured four discs in her back. He suggested we try medication and five weeks of complete rest but wasn’t very hopeful. After the five weeks I brought her home to see Dr Neely North. I had seen how she had helped a friend’s aging Dachshund. Dr North started Sammie on acupuncture treatments. After the first one Sammie seemed more comfortable. After the second there was marked improvement. After the third she was back to a new normal. A bit slower but able to build up to a daily mile walk and as you can see from this photo, at almost 13 years old she is pain free and enjoying life. I can’t say enough for the skill, attention and genuine concern Dr North has for all her patients and their humans. Acupuncture is a great healer. I’ve had it done on myself several times but with humans there is always the question did it work or was it a placebo effect? Dogs have none of these complicated possibilities. Dogs don’t know about acupuncture they just ARE the result. Thank you Neely North for all you do.”
