Appointment Information

Healing Touch Animal Acupuncture is a mobile veterinary service. Appointments will be at the client’s home.

Preparing for your pet’s appointment:

At least 48 hours prior to initial consultation:

  • Your pet’s medical records must be sent via email (vet@healingtouchanimal.com). This is a very important step. A full review of a patient’s medical records is an important part of the process and results in the best outcome for your pet.
  • Sign and return Practice Terms and Conditions form via DocuSign

Day of scheduled appointment:

  • Have your WiFi password available
  • Find a quiet and comfortable space in your home. This area should be free from distractions and other pets.
  • Your pet’s favorite food or treats should be handy during the appointment.
  • Your pet should relieve itself prior to the appointment if possible.
  • Please note: only pets with a scheduled appointment will be seen.
