Acupuncture is the stimulation of specific points on the body, which have the ability to alter various biochemical and physiological conditions in order to achieve a healing effect. Veterinary acupuncture has been used to treat animals for nearly 4,000 years in China and for decades in North America among both domestic and exotic animals.

“All I wanted was to give my dog comfort, so we did one round of acupuncture,” said Stewart. “After the second treatment Dakota was getting around better. After a month he is like a new dog and loves his treatments. He falls asleep during the treatment. I feel that [Dr. Mandelin] has given my dog the quality of life that I have been searching for.”
Dr. Mandelin has been practicing veterinary medicine for over 14 years and has been performing acupuncture on dogs and cats for 10 years in Orange County. Having begun her career in the human medical field, she has been able to create a unique and much-desired blend of high quality veterinary medicine. “I understand how important pets are to their owners and family, which is why our team is committed to providing care that will allow those pets to live long and healthy lives,” Dr. Mandelin said.
