Acupuncture

Medical Acupuncture

Acupuncture acts as an adjunct therapy used by veterinarians with specialized training to help manage pain, mobility, incontinence, as well as neurological conditions. Acupuncture works through a process called neuromodulation which stimulates local endorphin release, increases blood flow, as well as decreases pain.
How do I know if acupuncture is a good choice for my pet? Your veterinarian will do a thorough initial consultation and examination so that your pet can be assessed to see if they are a good candidate.

How many sessions will my pet need? Typically a pet will require between 3-8 sessions however many pet parents choose to continue with maintenance treatments.

How quickly will I see improvement in my pet’s condition? Some animals will improve following their first visit while others require 3-4 sessions to determine whether acupuncture is going to be a beneficial treatment for them.

Common conditions treated: Chronic pain caused by osteoarthritis, nerve injuries, disc disease, degenerative myelopathy, epilepsy/ other central nervous system disorders; asthma, lick granulomas, and pain caused by cancer.
