What is Veterinary Acupuncture?

Acupuncture and Chinese medicine have been practiced in East Asia for thousands of years for all types of medical conditions. However, with the scientific advancements in modern medicine in the 20th Century, the medical research community has been able to validate the mechanism of acupuncture for a few specific conditions, mainly pain management, neurologic conditions, and stress and anxiety relief.

Research shows positive results with veterinary acupuncture treatment when performed by a Veterinary Acupuncturist. Acupuncture therapy is increasingly accepted and popular. While it will not cure every condition, it can work very well when indicated.

What can be treated with acupuncture?

  • Musculoskeletal injuries and diseases(Osteoarthritis, degenerative joint disease, cruciate trauma)
  • Neurological conditions(IVDD, paralysis, seizure disorders, myelopathies, neuropathies)
  • Anxiety and behavioral disorders
