Interested in laser therapy or acupuncture for your pet?
Acupuncture is an ancient practice originating in China that involves placing very fine, sterile needles in acupuncture points along the body’s meridians, or energy channels. These acupuncture points often correspond with muscle groups and nerve clusters. The needles stimulate the release of endorphins, the body’s natural pain killers, as well as other physiological effects. Acupuncture can be used to treat a variety of conditions including:
- Nervous system problems such as seizures
- Arthritis and joint pain
- Gastrointestinal issues
- Urogenital conditions
- Palliative care for cancer and other diseases
- And much more
If you think your pet would benefit from one or both of these therapies, please talk to your veterinarian at your next appointment, or call us today at (707) 462-8833.
