Acupuncture

Veterinary acupuncture involves the use of tiny needles which are inserted into various areas of the body known as acupoints. These acupoints are believed to have a connection to certain internal areas, such as muscle groups, joints and organs. When the needles are inserted into the acupoints, it causes a cellular response in the corresponding area being targeted, triggering the body’s natural healing and pain control mechanisms.

Acupuncture has been used in human medicine for thousands of years, and can now be applied to our animal friends with the same powerful results. It is a drug-free, painless and highly effective way to treat and manage a wide variety of conditions, including but not limited to:

  • Arthritis
  • Disc Disease
  • Acute and Chronic Pain
  • Respiratory Problems
  • Skin Conditions
  • Gastrointestinal Problems
  • Much More…

If your pet suffers from any of these conditions, we encourage you to start a conversation with us about whether acupuncture may be beneficial in helping your pet live a more comfortable life.
