ACUPUNCTURE

Could your pet benefit from natural pain relief?

At Creature Comforts Animal Hospital, we strive to offer you as many options as possible to keep your loved one happy and healthy. That’s why we’re so pleased to include veterinary acupuncture as one of our alternative therapy services. Acupuncture is an excellent tool for helping companion animals enjoy more comfortable lives. Best of all, it’s all natural so there’s no risk of harmful side effects that pharmaceuticals can cause. This makes it particularly favorable for elderly pets or those who cannot tolerate medication.

What is veterinary acupuncture?

The ancient practice of acupuncture operates under the theory that when the body’s natural energy source becomes disrupted, sickness and pain can occur. To address these ailments without the need for medication, acupuncture needles are inserted into specific points along the body. Once inserted, the needles cause a cellular response in the targeted area. This restores the body’s energy, thereby promoting healing and reducing pain.

What conditions can be treated through acupuncture?

Veterinary acupuncture can be used to treat a wide range of health problems in companion animals. It can also be used to boost the immune system and promote ongoing wellness. Some of the conditions commonly treated with acupuncture include, but are not limited to:

  • 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?

The results of veterinary acupuncture can sometimes be seen after only a few sessions. Every pet is different, however. The specific condition, its severity and a number of other unique factors will help our doctors determine how many acupuncture treatments will be needed. Once your pet has been evaluated, we will provide you with an individualized treatment recommendation that is specific to his or her needs.
If your animal family member is struggling with pain or mobility issues or could just use a little more balance, acupuncture may be the ideal solution. Give us a call today to learn more or to schedule an initial consultation.

    Everyone here is very nice and helpful and very empathetic and compassionate. Dr Espinoza and Dr Paul are really just very caring and informative and take the time to explain. All the vets are prob as nice, I just have only been with these two with my older dog and now our new, sickly puppy. They offer an affordable wellness plan for the dogs that cover most basic needs. We did end up paying a bit out of pocket for the sick puppy, up and above that, but it was not at all anymore pricey then any vet anywhere else. The place is clean and has most all you’ll need to get you going . The front office staff is super nice . If I had to complain, then the only complaint I would have (& have voiced to them), is that getting them on the phone is hard. The hold time is never under 5 min, and I’ve been on hold sometimes 20 minutes and then disconnected.. either that or having to leave a message with a service and sometimes not getting the follow up. So for that I wish they had a dedicated receptionist cause the staff is always super busy checking in or out animals, (as should be their priority). They are overall one of the best vet offices we’ve gone to and i’m very happy with their level of care. Even after my last sick puppy visit,Dr Paul made a follow up call... that truly made me feel so valued as a client!
