What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is an ancient healing practice that involves the insertion of very fine needles at specific points on the body. This technique has been used for centuries to relieve pain and improve mobility, as well as stimulate energy flow for the spiritual. The same principles that make acupuncture successful in humans can be applied to certain animals as well because animals have similar nervous systems, cardiorespiratory systems, joint structures, and so on. Typically, veterinary acupuncture is best used on mammals for these reasons.

Veterinary acupuncture is usually used on these types of pets:

  • Dogs
  • Cats
  • Horses
  • Rabbits

Veterinary acupuncture can help by reducing or managing:

  • Chronic pain
  • Joint aches
  • Inflammation
  • Stress levels

Veterinary acupuncture can help by improving:

  • Mobility
  • Flexibility
  • Appetite
  • Digestion

When combined with medications or therapies from your veterinarian, acupuncture can provide a powerful form of relief that can help your pets live happier and healthier lives. Additionally, acupuncture is a gentle, minimally invasive procedure that is safe for most animals when performed by a professional because it doesn’t require surgery, incisions, or prescription medications.

How Effective is Veterinary Acupuncture?

The effectiveness of veterinary acupuncture depends on each specific pet’s health needs. Some pets will show an improvement quickly, and others might need several months of professional care before they start to show signs of improved health and mobility.

Your vet might recommend an acupuncture treatment once a week for a month or two months to start. When the initial treatment regimen is completed, you can decide together with your vet if you want to schedule more based on how much it seems to have benefitted your pet.
