Acupuncture falls under the umbrella of TVCM treatments and has long since been a practice to promote the well-being of our health. More recently, this healing practice has also become available to our pets.
The purpose of pet acupuncture is to treat physical, mental, and emotional conditions. While your pets may not be able to communicate this to you outright, these are the same conditions your pets may experience as a result of mental trauma, stress, or illness. The use of acupuncture is not limited to just these issues, as it can be utilized for all of your pet’s life stages.
The core concepts and benefits that stand behind veterinary acupuncture include:
• Helping the body to release substances responsible for pain and inflammation
• Improving oxygenation, blood flow, and removal of toxins
• Relaxation of the muscles at the site of insertion – directly resulting in localized pain relief
• Used in conjunction with current medications and treatments without adverse interaction
Veterinary acupuncture for your pet provides an alternative option for those that want to provide additional care for their loved ones on top of proper medication and nutrition. Pet acupuncture is a treatment that is quickly catching on for pets due to its wonderful benefits.
