Acupuncture

Acupuncture may be recommended as a preventative measure or to help treat disease. Acupuncture is a form of traditional Chinese medicine that has been used as a therapeutic treatment for thousands of years. This non-invasive treatment improves nerve function which reduces pain and restores the ability or desire to move. This neuromodulation facilitates recovery from an injury or illness. It may also reduce inflammation and modulate immunity.

Stimulation of acupuncture points is performed by inserting thin, smooth, solid needles. The depth of insertion, type of stimulation, and duration of treatment vary according to the disease or the condition being treated. Veterinary acupuncturists may use needles alone, needles with electrical stimulation, or stimulation using a specific type of laser. Ask your veterinarian if acupuncture may be right for your pet.
