We are very excited to announce we are now offering acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Therapy for all ages at Independence Veterinary Clinic. The doctors and staff of IVC and Dr. Morgan Dixon will work as a team to provide integrative medicine by combining the highest quality of modern medicine with Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM). Dr. Dixon will be seeing patients on Thursday mornings. Please call to schedule an appointment.
Dr. Dixon has been certified in acupuncture since 2009 and helping pets in the Charlotte area since 2008. Her path to acupuncture was found through experience with her personal dog, Hayle. During her older age, while healthy and happy otherwise, Hayle developed difficulty getting up and slipping on wood floors. Wanting to do whatever she could to help Hayle she began taking Hayle for acupuncture therapy. After watching acupuncture bring her strength and a better quality of life, she enrolled in the next TCVM class so as a veterinarian she could further help her patients.
- Some common conditions we can treat with TCVM are:
- Hip dysplasia
- Difficulty getting up and sliding on floors
- Neck and back pain (Disk disease)
- Cancer and side effects of cancer treatment
- Kidney disease
- Allergies and Asthma
Please ask the staff of Independence Veterinary Clinic today if acupuncture and herbal therapy could help your pet live a more comfortable, stronger, and healthier life.
