Could your furry family member benefit from natural pain relief?

Acupuncture is a highly effective tool for helping companion animals enjoy more comfortable lives. Best of all, because it’s all natural, there’s no risk of harmful side effects that pharmaceuticals can cause. This makes it particularly favorable for elderly pets or those who are unable to tolerate medication.

Compassionate Care Veterinary Hospital is pleased to include veterinary acupuncture as one of our alternative therapy services.

What is veterinary acupuncture?

Acupuncture operates under the concept that when the body’s natural energy source becomes disrupted, pain and sickness can occur. To address this without medication, acupuncture needles are inserted into specific points along the body, triggering a cellular response in the targeted area. This restores the body’s energy, thereby reducing pain and promoting healing.

What conditions can be treated through acupuncture?

Acupuncture can be applied to a wide variety of health problems. It can also be used to promote a healthier immune system and support ongoing wellness. Some of the many conditions routinely treated with acupuncture include:

  • Arthritis
  • Back Pain
  • Joint Problems
  • Sprains and Strains
  • Hip Dysplasia
  • Respiratory Problems
  • Digestive Issues
  • Neurological Conditions
  • Senior Pet Health

How many treatments will my pet need?

While the results of acupuncture can often be seen after only 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 recommended. 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 benefit from a little more balance, acupuncture may be the ideal solution. Contact Compassionate Care Veterinary Hospital today to learn more or schedule a consultation.
