The Acupuncture Technique
Acupuncture is a technique that involves the insertion of fine needles into an animal's body at specific points called meridians, where the blood vessels and nerves converge. The needles assist in channeling vital energy along these meridians, thereby supporting the nervous system, promoting circulation, and enhancing the body's natural healing abilities.
Common Acupuncture Uses
Our veterinarians frequently recommend veterinary acupuncture or other forms of Chinese medicine for a variety of conditions, including the following:
- Pain Management
Chemotherapy and other medical treatments can be extremely unpleasant for your pet. They are frequently used in conjunction with acupuncture to alleviate discomfort and aid your cat or dog in fighting their illness.
- Musculoskeletal Issues
Acupuncture is frequently used to treat injuries. Acupuncture is also effective for conditions such as arthritis, nerve injuries, and hip dysplasia.
- Dermatology & Skin Issues
Acupuncture treatment can assist in increasing circulation, which can aid in the treatment of hot spots, granulomas, and allergic dermatitis. Additionally, it can aid in healing and alleviate pain, resulting in less itching and subsequent over-grooming.
- Gastrointestinal Issues
Acupuncture may stimulate digestive secretions, which contributes to the maintenance of a healthy digestive system. Increased blood flow may benefit conditions such as diarrhea or nausea.
- Respiratory Issues
Acupuncture's immune-soothing and anti-inflammatory properties can help with asthma, allergies, and other conditions.
Acupuncture for pets provides a number of benefits, including:
- Pets in poor health will benefit from the lack of systemic side effects
- Lowers the amount of waste products produced
- Helps relax muscles and relieve pain
- Improves metabolic waste removal from the body
- Promotes an increased blood flow which boosts oxygen in tissues
