Acupuncture is preventative medicine for your pet. Holistic treatment with care that is effective for injuries and illnesses, as well as general health.
Acupuncture can benefit all life stages (juvenile, adult, and senior) and a variety of conditions. Since most pets’ health problems are diagnosed once illness has become very advanced, it’s vital to strive to prevent disease from occurring.
- Veterinary acupuncture helps stimulate the release of the body’s own pain relieving and anti-inflammatory substances and helps improve tissue blood flow, oxygenation, and removal of metabolic wastes and toxins.
- Relaxation of muscles at the site of needle insertion and more distant locations of the body is achieved with veterinary acupuncture treatment, creating both a local and generalized pain relieving effect.
- Unlike some prescription and over the counter pain medications, veterinary acupuncture lacks potential adverse side effects for your pet’s internal organs, and will not adversely interact with your pet’s current medications or supplements.
