Could your animal family member benefit from natural pain relief?
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.

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.
