Did you know that acupuncture can be safely done on pets? With the help of a trained veterinarian at an animal clinic (animal hospital), your pet can experience the benefits of this ancient holistic treatment for their pain and discomfort. Acupuncture has long been hailed as an all-natural aid for a variety of conditions. Now, your pet can reap the benefits of this holistic treatment too.
At White Rose Veterinary Clinic in York, SC, we want to help your pet get the care they need to feel like themselves again. Through our holistic approach to treatment, we'll help make sure we treat the root cause of your pet’s pain and discomfort and allow them to heal naturally.
What Is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese medical treatment. This type of treatment involves inserting thin needles into the skin of a pet or human, helping to trigger natural endorphins and allowing the body to heal itself using its own abilities.
Acupuncture is placed in certain areas in order to help get the best results. Both humans and pets can enjoy the many benefits of acupuncture with the help of a veterinarian to treat pain, allergies, neurological disorders, and even for weight loss management.
Will Acupuncture Hurt My Pet?
Acupuncture is nearly painless, and many pets might find the procedure comfortable when done by a professional veterinarian. Our vet will conduct acupuncture in our animal clinic (animal hospital) and your pet will undergo treatment for anywhere between 30 to 45 minutes approximately.
During this time, needles will be inserted into your pet's skin, but they will not hurt and instead produce a relaxation sensation throughout the body. In humans, acupuncture is a relaxing experience that can reduce muscle tension and chronic pain.
How Can a Veterinarian Help My Pet?
Our veterinarian will determine if acupuncture is the only effective treatment for your pet, or if they can benefit from other types of animal vet care. They will combine acupuncture for pets with lifestyle advice, dietary and nutritional counseling, and other recommendations to restore the health of your cat or dog.
