Acupuncture is an excellent tool for helping companion animals live more comfortable lives. Best of all, it’s all natural so there’s no risk of harmful side effects that pharmaceuticals can sometimes cause. This makes it particularly favorable for elderly pets, as well as animals who cannot tolerate medication.
Wadsworth Animal Hospital is pleased to include veterinary acupuncture as one of our integrative therapy services.
Acupuncture operates under the theory that when the body’s natural energy source is disrupted, pain and illness can occur. To address this without medication, special acupuncture needles are strategically inserted into various points along the body. This causes a cellular response in the targeted area, thereby 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 strengthen the immune system and promote ongoing wellness. Some of the conditions commonly treated with acupuncture include:
While the results of acupuncture can sometimes be seen after just a few sessions, every pet is different. The specific condition, its severity and a number of other unique factors will help our doctors determine how many treatments are needed. Once your pet has been evaluated, we’ll provide you with an individualized treatment strategy that’s specific to your pet.
If your pet is struggling with pain or mobility issues or could just use a little more balance, veterinary acupuncture may be the ideal solution. Contact Wadsworth Animal Hospital today to learn more or schedule a consultation.
