How Can Acupuncture Help My Pet?
Acupuncture in pets works the same way as it does in humans. A series of thin, sterile needles are inserted into specific points on the pet.
The goal is to stimulate endorphins in the pet to help relax muscles and provide pain relief. Some ailments that acupuncture can help with include:
- joint pain
- muscle stiffness
- recovery from injury or surgery
- back pain
What to Expect at Your Pets Acupuncture Appointment
A number of needles will be inserted around your pet’s body. After some amount of time, the needles will be removed and your pet can go on his way. You might see an improvement in your pet’s condition after the treatment, such as being less anxious or whimpering less from pain.
While pet acupuncture is not a treatment that's right for every pet, it may help your pet get relief from a number of different conditions without needing to rely on drugs or surgery.
