Acupuncture is one of the four branches of Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine. It is an ancient medical practice that has been used for over 3,000 years. Acupuncture is the insertion of fine needles into specific points on the body to cause a desired healing effect by balancing the energy or Qi in the body. Acupuncture works by stimulating the nervous system, endocrine system, and immune system. It is a technique for relieving pain and for improving the function of organs. It is most commonly used in pets for the treatment of osteoarthritis, neurological disorders such as paralysis and intervertebral disc disease, limping and lameness, autoimmune and immune mediated disorders, behavioral problems such as anxiety and aggression, kidney failure, diabetes, gastrointestinal issues, urinary maladies such as FLUTD and incontinence, respiratory disease such as asthma and Valley Fever, skin conditions, allergies, and cancer. In addition, acupuncture can be administered preemptively to mitigate surgical pain as well as post-operatively to reduce pain and support healing.
