Pet Acupuncture

Acupuncture is widely known for its effectiveness in the treatment of pain.  This acupuncture technique has been used in veterinary practice in China for thousands of years to treat many ailments. From a Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM) perspective, veterinary acupuncture encourages healing by correcting energy imbalances in the body. Acupuncture enhances blood circulation, nervous system stimulation, and the release of anti-inflammatory and pain relieving hormones. For small animals, acupuncture has been used for treating arthritis, lick granuloma, hip dysplasia, feline asthma and certain reproductive problems. Where as in larger animals, acupuncture has been used for treating downer cow syndrome, allergic dermatitis, facial nerve paralysis, nonsurgical colic , respiratory problems and certain reproductive disorders. Veterinary acupuncture has been recently used on more exotic animals, such as chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes) and an alligator with scoliosis though this is still quite rare.
