Acupuncture can benefit dogs of all ages and can be used to treat a variety of conditions by stimulating the release of your dog’s own internal anti-inflammatory and pain relieving hormones. While acupuncture can safely be used in addition to prescribed pain medications, the goal is to convince the body to heal itself. Acupuncture corrects energy imbalances, encourages blood circulation, stimulates the nervous system and promotes healing by the insertion of needles into areas of the body tissue called acupuncture points. The treatments can assist in healing many conditions and disorders, including arthritis, gastrointestinal and reproductive problems.
