I am so pleased and grateful to have found Restore Veterinary Acupuncture! 
My 9 year old standard Poodle, Phoebe, has been having acupuncture treatment

for about a year and I can see a massive improvement in her condition and a massive reduction in symptoms.
Phoebe has spondylosis in her spine which was causing her a lot of discomfort and making her very miserable. After the very first treatment it was like I had a new dog! She was so much less grumbly, a lot let stiff when getting up and she was SO playful! I couldn’t believe it! 
She has been having monthly treatments since then and I would recommend Restore to anyone whose pets (Rinnert treats other animals as well as dogs) are experiencing symptoms or problems that don’t seem to be getting much better with traditional treatments. 
Phoebe loves Rinnert, especially the massages he gives! 
Thanks so much 🙂

We recommend that if you haven’t yet considered how a vet specialising in holistic treatments can restore your pet’s health and wellbeing then it is absolutely worth looking into. Our experience with Dr Rinnert has been overwhelmingly positive, as we have seen our senior labrador transform from being anxious and withdrawn to outgoing and engaged showing significant improvement in his mobility and general health.
Consultations are calm and relaxed as Rinnert has a gentle and compassionate manner enabling our dog to fully relax during and after the treatment. A real positive for us, is the ample time available to establish a comprehensive view of our dog’s needs which gives us great confidence in the treatment. Rinnert’s knowledge and expertise in integrating both Western and Chinese approaches is invaluable and has impressed us. We can wholeheartedly recommend Dr Rinnert’s practice.

After being diagnosed with arthritis, I was looking for treatment options for my 17 year old cat Charles. Now, following several treatments I have seen a great improvement in Charles cat’s wellbeing and mobility as well as his activity levels and desire to explore and play.
Rinnert is expertly providing a bespoke treatment plan for Charles which is both professional and informative. Rinnert has a calming approach and Charles is engaged in his sessions and responds well.
I would highly recommend Rinnert, thank you for doing what you do.

Django,our 2 year old miniature schnauzer was diagnosed with epilepsy at the start of the year,after trying to address the problem through diet and medication(Ephiphen),we were left unhappy with the mainstream vets approach and researched into alternative treatment and therapies.

We discoverd Dr Rinnert who was offering acupuncture and seemed like the best in the surrounding areas.
After our first session we were extremely impressed with Dr Rinnert and his services.
He was knowledgeable about the nutritional aspects,offering us some great information and advice.
He has a very calming influence on both the dogs and the owners.

We are now on our forth session and have seen postive effects of the treatment,both in our dogs physiology and his mentality.

I would highly recommend Dr Rinnert and his sevices to everybody looking to improve the health and wellbing of their pets.

Quyn

dog getting electro-acupuncture

Absolutely I would recommend Restore Veterinary Acupuncture! I have a rescue Border Collie who has been with me for nearly seven years. He is aged between 9 – 11 years.

A couple of years ago he was diagnosed with a heart murmur which escalated a little over a year ago when he was diagnosed with Mitral Valve Disease, most likely inherited. A few months later I took him to be washed when all of a sudden he was literally “screaming” in pain! Both the groomer and myself were very shocked as we had never heard anything like it before! An appointment at the vets followed whereby he was diagnosed with spondylosis in his spine.

Over the next few months Quyn became more withdrawn and slept most of the time due the mount of pain he was in as well as his heart condition. More recently some of his medication was changed including a different pain killer which helped quite a bit. I had listed to Rinnert on BBC Radio Northampton and started to wonder about acupuncture and whether it might help Quyn. On my next visit to the vet she was one stage ahead of me, suggesting acupuncture as I was about to mention it!

The rest, as they say, is history as Quyn has now had three sessions to date, two of those using electro-acupuncture. The difference in Quyn is amazing! He is far more mobile and much, much happier! I am aware that due to his heart problem his life is limited but at least he now has a good quality of life and can enjoy the remainder of his days, how ever long that might be, relatively pain-free, comfortable and happy. Thank you so much Rinnert, you are Quyn’s saviour and I will be forever thankful!

Millie our Jack Russell x Chihauhau suddenly for no apparent reason at 10yrs old went off her back legs. We had only lost her companion a retired greyhound a few months previous with a similar condition so we kind of read the signs. We took Millie to our regular vet who recommended crate rest and put her on medication which seemed to help at the time but then about 4 months later we were back to square one, Millie was reluctant to go for walks she just lay in her bed shaking in what I assume was pain. Once again we went to the vets but they only wanted to treat with tablets and crate rest, it was then that I asked about alternative therapy and they suggested Acupuncture they said that there was a vet within the practice that could do it so I booked for a coarse of 4 treatments but unfortunately after the 2nd treatment the vet left I was so disappointed as I could tell the treatment was helping Millie and I’d managed to wean her off all the medication.
Just by chance through conversation Restore Acupuncture was mentioned and I decided then to contact Rinnert, he was so informative and helpful I booked in to take Millie our first trip was to Oakham Rinnert was very thorough with everything and it was all very calm and relaxed. Rinnert suggested I try altering Millie’s diet and gave me advise on what to cook for her he also suggested giving her a Tumeric tablet a day as this has natural anti inflammatory properties.
We have been this week again to see Rinnert at Market Harborough and I can honestly say that in just those 2 weeks between visits Millie is a changed dog! She is looking to go for walks twice a day which is great as we now have another rescued greyhound so they get to go out together, Millie’s coat is healthier since I started to cook her food and she can’t wait for it at meal times.
I can’t praise Rinnert enough I’m telling all my dog loving friends about him and the treatments. I would highly recommend trying Restore Acupuncture.

I took my dog because he was very nervous of a number of things. I wasnt sure it was going to help as I had tried SO MANY things before that I had given up hope .
The outcome was brilliant. My dog is happier, calmer and I started to notice a difference by week 3. By week 5 the difference was amazing. Would highly recommend

Harley

Rinnert made a huge difference in the well being of our 13 year old Staffordshire bull terrier Harley. He was suffering from knee and hip pain from a injury when he was much younger. Within a day of the first treatment he was walking much better, was able to sit down properly and his tail was wagging again !!! 

He was much happier and so were we. The treatment was stress free for everyone in fact Harley slept all the way through!! I can highly recommend Rinnert. Everything was explained, he was very calm and professional and most importantly Harley felt very relaxed around him .

After fostering a paraplegic dog for nearly 3 years, and not seeing any improvement with her bowel and bladder control, her legs becoming more contracted and a suspicion that her back was giving her pain at the point of the original injury, my local vet suggested accupuncture. I was very reluctant, as money is tight, but filed it in the back of my mind, and carried on with gentle massage and manipulation of her back and legs.
Then 3 months ago, an advert popped up on my social media page for a travelling holistic vet, who offered accupuncture. With the first appointment being free, l felt it was worth a try.
I sent a message, and had an almost instant reply, and after asking me a few basic details, we set a date for the first appointment.
Now l have to point out here that my little dog is wary of many people, understandably, after being abused as a puppy, so l warned the vet when he arrived that she can be a bit snappy, and certainly very vocal.
Hah! She immediately made a liar of me, didn’t she? She immediately took a great liking to him, throwing me a look as if to ask me where this man had been all her life!
I am a great believer in holistic therapy in animals, as l have seen huge benefits in many of my fostered animals as well as my own pets, in years gone by, but l was sceptical about seeing any improvements after the first session.
How wrong l was. That evening, my little dog was less grumbly during her massage and nappy changes (she is doubly incontinent) and her legs were a little less contracted.
Still sceptical as to just how much improvement we would ultimately see, we arranged for another visit, with me having a tutorial of how best to give suitable physiotherapy in the interim.
As the week went by, l could see she was not as happy, with her back being tense around the injury site again. I hoped this was a temporary thing and that further treatment would be longer lasting. Now we are entering month 3, and l am amazed. After weekly treatments ( one on radio leicester.. oh my what a diva!), l am seeing more movement in her tail, her legs are far more relaxed and easy to move, her bowel and bladder are more controlled, but best of all, her discomfort is markedly less in the area around the original spinal injury.
So in short, l now feel although money is tight, somehow, l will keep her treatment going, whatever it takes.
I am so pleased with the treatment, my dog and l both get on very well with her new friend the vet, and l would heartily recommend Rinnert Van Den Burgh to anyone looking to help their poorly animal be it a tiny bird or hamster, right up to your much loved horse or pony.
As a side, one visit, Rinnert was held up getting here, as he had found a badly injured bird by the roadside. He scooped it up, performed accupuncture and stitched it’s head wound, and a few days later, released the bird, all healthy and healed again.

Blik

Rinnert treated our dog’s skin condition. Blik had sore patch in her groin, which kept coming back despite our own vet’s best efforts.

We were happy and surprised to see how quick the condition responded to acupuncture. Rinnert explained the treatment very well and we felt very comfortable and confident because of this. Blik was a bit nervous at first but became very relaxed as a result of the treatment and did not seem to mind the needles at all!

We would recommend Dr. Rinnert to anyone. He is very knowledgeable on both acupuncture and conventional veterinary medicine. This allows for an integrated treatment where the most beneficial traditional or acupuncture strategy can be chosen. He is a very skilled and compassionate acupuncture vet.

My cat has a lot of problems from renal and heart problems to back and overgrooming and wasn’t eating. After 1 treatment and 14 needles, which my cat was very good and just laid there, nice and calm because of rinnerts brilliant way with her, she has responded exceptionally well just after one treatment. i am going to continue with the treatments, which i am able to claim back on her insurance, because I have had such a good experience. This is the best my cat has been for quite some time and I would highly recommend letting Rinnert treat your cat or dog.

Since having accupuncture wit Rinnert, Rosie has come on so much.
Rosie has heart and renal problems and has had problems with her liver enzyme test results, over grooming and back problems which caused her to stop eating, in a lot of pain, lathargis and not happy at all.
she stopped playing and was just sleeping and quiet a lot of the time.

Since having accupuncture for just a short while, she has now stopped overgrooming, she is in pain only on an occasional day, she is eating well and she plays like a little kitten again, she has so much energy now because she is not in pain and eating well.

I have managed to take her off yumove now and she is ok. Rinnert believes that the overgrooming was down to the pain that she was suffering and the back pain was all linked to the liver being out of sorts and he is treating this with amazing results.

I can not recommend acupuncture highly enough, Rinnert and the acupuncture is the best treatment ever.

Please don’t hesitate if your pet is suffering, go try it. I am sure you wont be disappointed and most pet insurances cover this treatment so it wont cost an arm and a leg.
