Acupetture is a mobile vet acupuncture service which helps animals all over Singapore improve quality of life in the comfort and safety of their own homes.
In addition to housecalls, we also offer in-clinic acupuncture treatments at our clinic, Bluewater Vet Acupuncture (777 Upper Serangoon Road, Singapore 534645).
Is your pet afraid of the unfamiliar sights, smells and sounds at the vet clinic? Is it a stressful experience just to get your pet to the clinic?
We believe all animals should have the right to pain-free and comfortable lives, and their journey towards this should be as fear-free and hassle-free as possible.
We also believe in having an open channel of communication and are always happy to discuss your pet's needs with you.
What absolutely thrills us is seeing pets who could not walk take their first steps after our sessions with them! We use an integrative approach of acupuncture and Western therapies based on the individual pet.
