The most commonly used method to treat pain in dogs and cats.

Welcome to our acupuncture service, where we integrate a holistic approach to optimize the health and well-being of your pets. Veterinary acupuncture, a millennia-old practice, provides a complementary alternative to traditional care, promoting energy balance and alleviating various conditions.

What conditions can be treated with acupuncture for animals?

Veterinary acupuncture is a complementary therapy that can be beneficial for a variety of conditions. It is often used to address musculoskeletal issues such as arthritis, spinal disorders, sprains, and muscle tension. Additionally, acupuncture can aid in managing neurological disorders, such as paralysis and peripheral neuropathies. This method is also effective in relieving pain in animals with chronic conditions like osteoarthritis. Dermatological conditions, gastrointestinal disorders, and even emotional issues such as anxiety can be improved through acupuncture. Overall, this practice aims to restore energy balance in the animal's body, promoting natural healing and overall well-being.

Will my pet feel pain during the acupuncture session?

In general, animals tolerate acupuncture well and experience little to no pain during the session. The needles used are very thin, minimizing discomfort. Many animals even relax during the session, with some becoming calm and serene.

It is crucial to choose a veterinarian specialized in acupuncture for animals, as these professionals are trained to apply acupuncture techniques safely and effectively. They will also consider the temperament of the animal and adjust the treatment accordingly. If you have questions about your pet's sensitivity, feel free to discuss your concerns with the veterinarian before the start of the treatment.
