Acupuncture For Pets

Acupuncture For Pets

Pets who suffer from arthritis, anxiety, digestive problems, chronic pain, or neurological disorders may benefit from veterinary acupuncture. This ancient Chinese practice is becoming more commonly used to complement traditional Western veterinary practices such as surgery and medication. While not all veterinarians are trained in its use, modern research has shown that acupuncture can help reduce pain and inflammation in our companion animals. 

Veterinary acupuncturists place thin needles into specific points in joints, fascia, tendons and nerve fibers. This eases the pet's clinical signs by changing the way the patient perceives pain, or stimulating neurotransmitters in the brain. Our own dog Grendel received regular acupuncture treatments, and lived seventeen good years.  This despite being prone to many of the orthopedic problems that plague older Dachshunds. Your pet's veterinarian can let you know if acupuncture is right for your pet, and may be able to recommend a local practitioner.
