Could your animal family member benefit from natural pain relief?
Acupuncture is an effective tool for helping both humans and animals enjoy more comfortable lives. Best of all, it’s all natural so there’s no risk of harmful side effects that pharmaceuticals can sometimes cause. This makes it particularly favorable for senior pets or those who cannot tolerate medication.
Animal Hospital of Richboro is pleased to include veterinary acupuncture as one of our alternative therapy services.
What is veterinary acupuncture?
Acupuncture operates under the ancient concept that when the body’s natural energy source becomes disrupted, sickness and discomfort can occur. To address this without the use of medication, special acupuncture needles are inserted into certain points along the body, causing a cellular response in the targeted area. This effectively 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 variety of health concerns. It can also be used to promote a healthy immune system and support ongoing 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?
While the results of acupuncture can sometimes be seen after just a few sessions, every pet is different. The specific condition, its severity, and a number of other factors will help our doctors determine how many treatments are recommended. Once your pet has been thoroughly evaluated, we’ll provide you with an individualized treatment plan that’s specific to your pet.
If your animal companion is struggling with pain or mobility issues or could just use a little more balance, our acupuncture services may be the ideal solution. Contact us today to learn more or schedule a consultation.
