Acupuncture is a form of alternative medicine generally defined as the inclusion of needles into particular points on the body to generate healing responses. This technique has been in use for thousands of years to both treat and prevent a wide variety of ailments to positive results, and can be used in conjunction with conventional medical care to provide a more integrated approach to healing. Specifically, acupuncture is often used to treat problems like arthritis, joint inflammation, chronic back pain, and more!
Acupuncture sessions at our clinic are administered by a trained veternarian, and typically take between 10-30 minutes but can seldom take longer, depending on your pet and their response to the treatment. If you are interested in pursuing acupuncture for your pet, we would be more then happy to discuss what a treatment plan would look like and the benefits you can expect!
