Acupuncture Therapy

Acupuncture therapy for your pet is a pain-free way to treat a variety of conditions, primarily those dealing with inflammation and pain.

Why would my pet need acupuncture therapy?

Acupuncture therapy can help in treating, and potentially diagnosing, a variety of ailments and diseases. This relaxing treatment for your pet improves tissue blood flow, oxygenation and removes metabolic waste and toxins. Additionally, acupuncture therapy lacks many of the negative side effects that prescription medication has on your pet’s internal organs. This means that it can be safely used alongside other mediums of treating pet illness.

When is acupuncture therapy appropriate?

Acupuncture is highly effective for pain control and treatment of musculoskeletal and neurological conditions, such as arthritis and paralysis. It is also used to treat a wide variety of respiratory, gastrointestinal, dermatological, reproductive, and behavioral problems, well as allergy control. Please contact us to determine if acupuncture therapy is the right choice for your pet.

How does acupuncture therapy work?

Acupuncture stimulates specific points of the body that alter various physiological and biochemical conditions, and assist in the body’s effort to heal itself, restoring the body’s balance. Acupuncture can stimulate nerves, increase blood circulation, relieve muscle spasms, and cause the release of hormones.

It is important to note that acupuncture does not necessarily cure disease — it restores energy flow, aiding in improved or cured health conditions. It can be used alone or in combination with other medications recommended.

Acupuncture Protocol

Acupuncture uses extremely thin needles that cause minimal to no pain, and because of that, are generally well-tolerated by pets. A therapeutic laser can also be used to stimulate the acupuncture points.

Duration of treatment can vary depending on the condition of your pet, as well as the number of treatments needed. Chronic conditions may take a few treatments for a positive response to be seen. After optimum responses are achieved, treatments may taper off.
