Mission Statement: To help relieve animal pain and suffering by utilizing a multimodal approach in a compassionate manner.
Animal Acupuncture, LLC was founded by Dr. Heather Owen and her husband, Dustin Owen in October of 2008. It started from a realization that so many pets quality of life could be improved by increasing the access to acupuncture services. With that passion driving them, Heather left general practice and set off to do in home pet services. Today, the demand of pet owners in and around Tulsa has helped to expand the practice to offering business hours 4 days a week in addition to house calls. This is their dream clinic-focusing on the overall wellbeing of animals!
