When treating painful conditions in animals, we work hard to offer every tool available in alleviating debilitating symptoms. To that end, our team here at Healing Hands 4 Paws is highly skilled in administering therapeutic acupuncture treatments as part of your pet’s rehabilitative care. Depending on your pet’s specific issues, we may suggest veterinary acupuncture to aid their recovery. The most effective conditions that we treat using this method include musculoskeletal problems, including osteoarthritis and damage to a nerve.
Acupuncture can be especially useful in reducing the inflammation that accompanies an acute or long-term injury. If your pet experiences generalized pain, acupuncture can also help reduce overall stiffness and discomfort.Are you curious about how animal acupuncture works? Once inserted, these needles can help to stimulate the body’s natural healing mechanisms to encourage blood circulation and release pain-fighting hormones. We can direct the body’s efforts with careful placement in the affected areas as well as known therapeutically relevant spots.
Acupuncture needles are so thin that the process is essentially painless for most pets, and many animals relax deeply during a session. All procedures are performed in a sterile and clean environment to ensure your pet’s safety.
