For thousands of years, acupuncture has been used to treat a wide variety of ailments in people. It’s also an effective treatment for our furry friends. This alternative treatment involves stimulating the nervous system by inserting small needles into different parts of the patient’s body. This releases chemicals and stimulates all types of internal processes and healing abilities. Call us at 807-939-2616 to learn more.
Is acupuncture safe for pets?
Absolutely. Acupuncture is a non-invasive procedure. It is even less “uncomfortable” than vaccinations and bloodwork. In fact, many patients find it very soothing, and end up taking naps during their treatment.
How can acupuncture help pets?
One of acupuncture’s main benefits is to improve circulation and blood flow. This makes it a great treatment for conditions like:
- Joint inflammation
- Chronic pain
- Digestive problems
- Respiratory conditions
- Heart and liver issues
How often should my pet get acupuncture?
Frequency will depend on your pet’s unique situation. Some patients see results after just one session, but usually patients need a series of approximately three.
