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.

      I've taken all of my yorkie babies to CC since I moved to the west side (12 yrs ago) and they've always taken the best care of us! My frantic calls when one of them ate something they shouldn't to helping me see two of them over the Rainbow Bridge, this crew has always been the most caring, sympathetic bunch!
