Alternative Medicine

At Teller Park Veterinary Service, we truly believe that when it comes to caring for your animal family members, the more choices you have, the better it is for everyone – especially your pets! For that reason, we’re proud to offer a number of alternative treatment options in addition to our extensive list of traditional medical care services. These integrative treatment modalities allow us to take a more holistic approach to health care. We’re prepared to manage your pet’s health from every angle to ensure that he or she receives the most comprehensive and effective care possible with each and every visit to our clinic.

Teller Park Veterinary Service offers acupuncture and chiropractic care via a relationship with a trained veterinary chiropractor/acupuncturist. Give us a call today to find out if your pet could benefit from these innovative services!


Veterinary acupuncture involves the use of tiny needles which are inserted into various areas of the body known as acupoints. These acupoints are believed to have a connection to certain internal areas, such as muscle groups, joints and organs. When the needles are inserted into the acupoints, it causes a cellular response in the corresponding area being targeted, triggering the body’s natural healing and pain control mechanisms.

Acupuncture has been used in human medicine for thousands of years, and can now be applied to our animal friends with the same powerful results. It is a drug-free, painless and highly effective way to treat and manage a wide variety of conditions, including but not limited to:

  • Arthritis
  • Disc Disease
  • Acute and Chronic Pain
  • Respiratory Problems
  • Skin Conditions
  • Gastrointestinal Problems
  • Much More…

If your pet suffers from any of these conditions, we encourage you to start a conversation with us about whether acupuncture may be beneficial in helping your pet live a more comfortable life.

Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic care is the manual manipulation of the spine to bring the body back into its natural alignment and to restore the natural relationship between the spine and the nervous system. While this type of treatment has been used on humans to relieve pain and improve health for centuries, it only became available for use in veterinary medicine over the past few decades.

When areas of the spine become misaligned, they’re called subluxations. These subluxations can cause anything from minor discomfort to reduced mobility to extreme pain, and can ultimately affect your pet’s quality of life. A chiropractic adjustment can help alleviate these symptoms and bring the body back to a state of health and balance.
