Could your animal family member benefit from natural pain relief?
Acupuncture is a highly effective tool for helping animals enjoy more comfortable lives. Best of all, it’s all natural so there’s minimal risk of harmful side effects that pharmaceuticals can sometimes cause. This makes it particularly favorable for elderly pets or those who cannot tolerate medication.
Petwise is pleased to include veterinary acupuncture as one of our alternative therapy services.
What is veterinary acupuncture?
Acupuncture operates under the idea that when the body’s natural energy source becomes disrupted, sickness and pain can result. To address this without medication, acupuncture needles are inserted into specific points along the body, triggering 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?
Acupuncture can be used to address a variety of health problems. It can also be used to boost the immune system and promote optimal wellness. Some of the conditions commonly treated with acupuncture include:
- 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 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 factors will help the doctor determine how many treatments are needed. Once your pet has been evaluated, we’ll provide you with an individualized treatment recommendation that’s specific to your pet.
If your loved one is struggling with pain or mobility issues or could just use a little more balance, acupuncture may be the ideal solution. Contact Petwise today to learn more or schedule an in-home consultation.
