Acupuncture involves the insertion of very fine needles into specific nerve centers on the pet's body. Stimulating these pathways can restore energy flow which can result in better pain management, recovery after surgery and improvement in certain health conditions.
Acupuncture can be used as an alternative therapy for many conditions in pets, including:
- Neurological disorders
- Musculoskeletal issues
- Gastrointestinal problems
- Other issues such as kidney, behavioral, hyperthyroidism and more
