Acupuncture can be defined as the insertion of fine needles into specific points on the body to produce a therapeutic response. This can include dry needles alone, electrical stimulation, or using injections at specific acupoints. Acupuncture has been practiced both in humans and animals for thousands of years. Studies prove that acupuncture stimulates nerves, increases circulation, relieves muscle spasms, and causes the release of hormones (such as endorphins and cortisol) that help relieve pain and inflammation. Many conditions can be treated with acupuncture, including: arthritis, back pain, intervertebral disc disease, seizures, gastrointestinal disorders, and other chronic conditions. Acupuncture can also be used to help increase the quality of life in patients with cancer or that are in hospice.

Maintaining good oral hygiene is essential to your pet’s overall health and wellness. There are many different ways to improve your pets’ dental hygiene, including home brushing, dental chews, and regular inspection. Regular wellness visits can help keep your pet systemically healthy, and prevent common issues from becoming more serious ones. If untreated, dental disease can cause significant discomfort and pain, as well as permanent loss of teeth and gum tissue. Please call us today at (386) 672-3137 to set up an appointment or if you have any questions or concerns about your pet’s dental health.
At Tomoka Pines Veterinary Hospital in Ormond Beach, FL, we are proud to be on the cutting edge of medical technology. Radiology is a technique and diagnostic tool that we use to look inside the body in an entirely non-invasive way. X-rays allow us to create images of all the body's organs.
High-tech fiber optics permits direct visual examination and biopsies of your pet’s gastrointestinal system. This allows for more accurate diagnosis and treatment of oral, esophageal, stomach, colon and even upper intestinal tract disease. Foreign objects can also be removed without the need for surgery.
Also known as tonometry testing, glaucoma tests are used to determine whether or not glaucoma is present in dogs. Glaucoma is often caused by a buildup of fluid within the eye, and if your pet suffers from abnormally high pressure in that area, it can damage the optic nerve and lead to a loss of vision in your pet. If you feel your canine companion may have glaucoma, please contact us today at (386) 672-3137.

Every year, thousands and thousands of pets go missing. Not knowing where your pet is or how to bring them back can be a helpless, hopeless feeling. It’s a tragedy that happens all too often. A microchip is a safe, simple form of identification that is registered with your pet’s vital information, and can be scanned by any veterinarian or animal shelter, so that they can return your pet directly to you.
From the very first day you bring a new pet home through the final days of its life, nutrition plays a critical role in your pet’s overall health and well-being. Whether your pet has special dietary needs or simply needs to shed (or gain) a few pounds, our nutritional counseling services can help you accomplish your goals and keep your pet in good health. We offer counseling in dietary selection and feeding practices for pets during various life stages, such as growth, pregnancy, nursing, and the “golden years.” If your pet has a medical condition, we can help you select the most appropriate diet to suit your pet’s needs.
We are proud to offer the highest quality of veterinary medicine to our patients. We have state-of-the-art diagnostic tools that allow our staff to diagnose your pets’ condition or illness better.

Having these advanced diagnostic tools allows us to examine specific areas more carefully and provide a quicker and more accurate diagnosis.
The idea of your pet being infested with parasites is a disturbing thought, but it's also a medical issue that can have serious consequences if not properly dealt with or prevented. Parasites pose a variety of health issues for our pets, who can be very susceptible to certain parasites depending on age, region, and other factors. Let us help you protect your pet!
Spay And Neuter
Spaying and neutering are important and necessary medical procedures that enhance the quality of your pets’ life. Spaying and neutering prevents unwanted litters, helps protect against some serious health problems, and may reduce many of the behavioral problems associated with the mating instinct. Spaying and neutering also helps control the homeless pet population.
Here at Tomoka Pines Veterinary Hospital, we offer the most advanced surgical techniques and technology. In our continuing efforts to offer the highest quality veterinary medicine, we are pleased to provide a wide range of surgical services for our patients. From routine surgical procedures, such as spaying and neutering, to more complex surgeries, we look forward to the opportunity to care for your pet’s surgical needs. Our fully-trained veterinary and technical staff are there to ensure the safest, most efficient, state-of-the-art procedures are performed for your pet.
Tomoka Pines Veterinary Hospital offers pet ultrasound exams to provide us with a more thorough understanding of your pet’s current health. An ultrasound exam is the best way to evaluate fluid-filled and soft tissue organs (including the kidney, liver, heart, lungs, intestines, and more) in pets. Ultrasound uses sound waves to offer a non-invasive, painless, and radiation-free method of imaging your pets’ internal organs.
Vaccines are an important part of a pet’s health care plan. Pets today can live longer, healthier lives than ever before—in part because of vaccines that help protect them from deadly infectious diseases. Over the years, vaccines against dangerous diseases have saved millions of pets and virtually eliminated some fatal diseases that were once common. Here at Tomoka Pines Veterinary Hospital, vaccination protocols are tailored to each individual pet based on their lifestyle, age, breed, and any underlying medical conditions. Protecting your pet is our primary goal, so developing an appropriate vaccine schedule for your pet is important to us. Please call us today at (386) 672-3137 to set up an appointment or if you have any questions or concerns about your pet’s vaccinations.
Regular check-ups and wellness exams are critical to your pets’ well-being. Whether your pet is a youngster, a “senior citizen,” or any age in between, wellness examinations provide an excellent opportunity for us to conduct a thorough physical examination and develop a health profile for your pet. This information will help us identify medical problems and any other issues that can affect your pet’s health and quality of life. Through your pet’s physical examinations, other wellness procedures, and our consultations with you, we get to know your pet and learn about his or her lifestyle, personality, health risks, home environment, and other important information. We encourage you to use wellness examinations to take an active role in your pet’s health care.
