Information for New Patients, Fees and Payments

Thank you for choosing Four Paws Acupuncture to be part of your dog's healing process. I am confident that acupuncture and Oriental medicine will help restore your pet to a state of health and balance. As you may know, there is a considerable body of research supporting the effectiveness of acupuncture for the treatment of a wide range of canine health issues. If I can help you research your condition, please let me know.

House Calls on the North Shore of Massachusetts

I make house calls to Salem, Peabody and Beverly.

What you should know before your dog's first acupuncture treatment:

Dogs are most comfortable surrounded by familiar scenery and smells.

Pick the room where your dog is most comfortable. Perhaps a family room, or a sleeping place. If the dog has a favorite blanket or bed, please have it available and find a place on the floor for the treatment. I prefer to treat dogs while they are on the floor (and the dogs like it that way too). You or a family member will need to be present during the entire treatment.

Please schedule your house call during a quiet time. Loud music, television or other disturbing noise, telephone conversations, people coming and going, household chores, will all affect the treatments negatively. Your dog should be able to relax. Environment plays a large role in the effectiveness of an acupuncture treatment.

New Clients: Canine Health History Form

Below is a link to a health history form (in PDF) that you may print and fill out before your dog's first acupuncture treatment. Completing the form before our appointment will save time and allow me to spend more time with your dog.

Please note that before a treatment can be scheduled, I will need a referral from your veterinarian.

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts requires a referral from your veterinarian before acupuncture and/or herbs can be administered to your pet. Please contact your veterinarian to obtain this referral. Click here to download the veterinarian referral form (PDF)

Important: Prior to treatment, please mail or email to me a list of any medications your dog is taking, the name and phone number of your veterinarian, and the diagnosis (if any).

Paying for treatments

Payment is due at time of service. Other arrangements must be made in advance.

Cash, credit cards and personal checks are accepted.

Please make personal or business check payable to "Jeanie Marie Kraft, Lic.Ac."

I do not bill pet insurance companies directly. However, I am happy to give you a detailed receipt (superbill) that you may submit to your insurance provider for reimbursement of your acupuncture fees, to the limits your policy provides. Contact your insurer for more information.
