Acupuncture

services7.pngAccording to ancient Chinese medical philosophy, illness is a result of an imbalance of vital energy within the body. Acupuncture balances this energy and allows the body to heal. Acupuncture can stimulate nerves, increase blood circulation, relieve muscle spasms, and cause the release of humoral regulators such as cortisol and endorphins.

services8.pngThe number of treatments varies with the problem being treated. Most cases will need four to six treatments usually one week apart initially. After the initial treatment series, if additional visits are needed the interval usually decreases to once monthly.

Acupuncture is one of the safest alternative forms of therapy for animals when it is administered by a properly trained veterinarian. In small animals, some of the conditions that respond well to acupuncture include:

  • Musculoskeletal problems such as arthritis or disc problems
  • Infertility problems
  • Gastrointestinal problems such as vomiting and diarrhea
  • Respiratory problems such as asthma and bronchitis
  • Skin problems such as lick granulomas and allergies
  • Neurological disorders such as paresis, paralysis, and seizures
