The ancient practice of acupuncture can benefit your pet too

What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is the practice of inserting fine, solid needles into the body for pain relief or, in some cases, to help the body deal with other problems or diseases.

How does acupuncture work?

It works through the nervous system. The effect of the needles blocks pain messages and encourages the brain and central nervous system to produce more of the body’s natural painkillers. In conditions that are not painful, acupuncture may help to stimulate the body’s normal functioning.

What conditions can be treated with acupuncture?

Musculoskeletal Pain is most common indication for acupuncture.


Examples include:


  • Arthritis
  • Hip Dysplasia
  • Back Pain
  • Muscle Injury
  • Post surgical pain and more.
