How Does Acupuncture Work?
Acupuncture uses the stimulation from an application of small needles into the skin to activate body systems for improved health and wellness. These needles stimulate nerves that then send signals to the brain. The brain then releases many of the wonderful powers of the biochemical brain to treat the body itself. The needles are not placed in a random pattern, but according to tested methods that match needle placement with specific body systems and organs to improve function. Acupuncture for pets tends to be a complementary procedure that serves as a part of a larger treatment plan.
Is This A Risky New Procedure For Pets?
Acupuncture for pets is a low-risk, cost-effective method of treatment based upon thousands of years of medical experience.

We have even observed that some pets, after a few treatments, begin to recognize the relaxing nature of this treatment and start to look forward to visiting their veterinarian!
