Acupuncture fits hand-in-hand with conventional veterinary medicine because it looks at the problem from another point of view. Problems that do not respond well to regular medicine often respond to acupuncture.
Enhancing Performance with Therapeutic Treatments
At Rising Sun Equine Clinic, Dr. Carla W. Pasteur focuses on restoring and maintaining top-level performance for horses in all stages of life. As a licensed veterinarian and a practitioner of Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine, Dr. Pasteur couples her knowledge of conventional medicine with advanced techniques to offer Acupuncture and Spinal Manipulation for horses.
Treating Problems Before They Take You Out of Competition
It is important to notice any subtle changes in the way your horse moves, and it is critical to fix any problems before pain progresses or lameness occurs. Horses are natural athletes and prey animals, which makes them great at hiding pain and masking injuries. The subtle signs of pain are often mistaken for a training issue. Unfortunately, riding or training harder will make the problem worse, which could take your horse out of competition.
With a focus on acupuncture and spinal manipulation for horses, Dr. Pasteur delivers detailed evaluations, veterinary care, and preventive treatments. She enjoys helping to improve the health of horses in the Ocala area as well as horses from Reddick, Summerfield, Morriston, Gainesville, and other towns across the United States.
