Dr. Spencer completed her acupuncture training through the Medical Acupuncture for Veterinarians (MAV) in Colorado. 


Medical Acupuncture for Veterinarians (MAV) is the only source for critically evaluated, scientifically based, and evidentially informed instruction on veterinary medical acupuncture and related techniques, such as laser therapy and massage. 

Acupuncture can be used for many diseases, but is most often used in a pain management protocol.  The MAV program trains veterinarians to use acupuncture to help patients with

  • Post-surgical pain and ileus

  • Debilitating arthritis

  • Chronic back and neck pain

  • Intervertebral disk disease

  • Immune dysfunction

  • Muscle tension

  • And much more!

 Most cats tolerate these sessions very well, and some even fall asleep during a treatment.
