Pet acupuncture – alternative medicine for your dog and cat

Sometimes, allopathy doesn’t seem to have all the answers to our health concerns and this is when alternative medicine steps into the picture. As we are gravitating towards complementary therapies nowadays, why shouldn’t our pets try them, too?

So, if your best furry friend needs a gentle yet efficient treatment, pet acupuncture may be just right for them.

What is acupuncture and how does it work in pets?

Acupuncture is an ancient technique originating from traditional Chinese medicine which helps reduce pain, improve recovery rates and increase resistance to disease. It has been practised by the Eastern cultures for thousands of years and is still being used today worldwide.

With pet acupuncture, we place thin needles into specific areas (acupressure points) of the body. Most pets experience little or no pain at all (and some of them even fall asleep) as these sessions are usually very relaxing. Since each pet’s needs and conditions are different, an acupuncture treatment plan will vary. In most cases, your four-legged friend will begin to feel relief within the first few sessions.
