Acupuncture is a highly effective, all-natural tool for helping animals enjoy more comfortable lives. Best of all, there’s no risk of harmful side effects that pharmaceuticals can sometimes cause. This makes it particularly favorable for elderly pets or those who are unable to tolerate medication.

Best Friends Animal Clinic is pleased to include veterinary acupuncture as part of our extensive integrative therapy options.

What is veterinary acupuncture?

Acupuncture operates under the theory that when the body’s natural energy source becomes disrupted, sickness and pain can result. To address this without medication, special acupuncture needles are carefully and gently 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 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

After Care

The results of acupuncture can often 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 our doctors determine how many treatments are recommended. Once your pet has been evaluated, we’ll provide you with an individualized treatment plan that’s specific to your pet.

If your pet is struggling with pain or mobility issues or could just use a little more balance, acupuncture could be the ideal solution. Contact Best Friends Animal Clinic today to learn more or schedule a consultation.
