Could your furry family member benefit from natural pain relief?
Acupuncture is a highly effective tool for helping companion animals enjoy more comfortable lives. Best of all, it’s all natural so there’s no risk of harmful side effects that pharmaceuticals can sometimes cause. This makes acupuncture a particularly favorable option for elderly pets or those who have difficulty tolerating medication.
Healing Touch Veterinary Wellness Center is pleased to include veterinary acupuncture as one of our alternative medicine services.
What is veterinary acupuncture?
Acupuncture operates under the idea that when the body’s natural energy source becomes disrupted, sickness and discomfort can occur. To address this without the use of medication, special acupuncture needles are inserted into specific points along the body. This causes a cellular response in the targeted area, restoring the body’s energy, promoting healing and reducing pain.
What conditions can be treated through acupuncture?
Acupuncture can be used to address a wide variety of health problems. It can also be used to boost the immune system and support ongoing wellness. Some of the conditions commonly treated with acupuncture include:
- Back Pain
- Joint Problems
- Sprains and Strains
- Hip Dysplasia
- Respiratory Problems
- Digestive Issues
- Neurological Conditions
- Senior Pet Health
How many sessions will my pet need?
The positive results of acupuncture can sometimes be seen after only a few sessions. Every pet is different, however. The specific condition, its severity and a number of other unique factors will help determine how many treatments are recommended. Once your pet has been professionally evaluated, we’ll develop an individualized treatment plan that’s specific to your pet.
Whether your pet is struggling with pain or mobility issues or could just use a little more balance, veterinary acupuncture may be the ideal solution. Contact the experts at Healing Touch Veterinary Wellness Center today to learn more or schedule a consultation.
