Clementon Animal Hospital provides veterinary acupuncture. Acupuncture has many benefits for sick or injured pets, especially those with chronic conditions such as arthritis.
- Acupuncture stimulates specific points which alter biochemical and physiologic conditions to aid the body in healing.
- Acupuncture is not a cure-all, but it works well to treat certain ailments. It can be used alone or in combination with traditional veterinary medicine to correct an initial injury or as a long-term therapy. It can also be used early as part of a preventive care program to optimize your pet's health.
- For small animals, the insertion of acupuncture needles is virtually painless and once the needles are in place, there should be no pain. Most pets relax and even fall asleep during the treatment.
- A simple acute problem, such as a sprain, may require only one treatment, where a more severe or chronic ailment may need several treatments to stabilize the problem, followed by regular maintenance sessions.
- Acupuncture can benefit both cats and dogs.
- Acupuncture is one of the safest forms of medical treatment and should only be administered by a properly trained veterinarian.
