Acupuncture: More Than Just an Alternative
The Whole Pet Vet Hospital and Wellness Center provides acupuncture to treat a number of common pet conditions and illnesses. Acupuncture is non-painful and has no side effects. It helps release endorphins, which leads to relaxation and a general “feel good” effect that contributes to faster and easier recovery and long-term health benefits.
Acupuncture is used to alleviate and treat painful conditions and inflammatory disorders such as:
- Immune-mediated diseases
- Cancer-related illness
However, research and medical practice is revealing it’s so much more. For instance, we use acupuncture as an adjunct treatment for neurological and behavioral disorders:
- Vestibular disease
- Excessive grooming
- Urine marking
Acupuncture has also been useful in managing the side effects associated with kidney, liver, and heart disease, as well as various cancers.
