Veterinary Acupuncture for Animals

| July 23, 2012

Acupuncture is a form of medical treatment that has been used for centuries in China to cure a number of ailments. This ancient medical treatment works by penetrating specific points of the skin with very fine needles, to stimulate targeted areas, which in turn encourage the body to release the necessary hormones to cure it. Critics of this form of treatment claim that acupuncture simply works due to the placebo effect; patients believe that it will remove their pain and therefore they convince themselves that they no longer feel the pain. However, acupuncture has also started to gain popularity in the treatment of animals, which is called veterinary acupuncture, and therefore proves that proper results can be achieved with the use of acupuncture.

Acupuncture is a painless method of medical treatment. Even though fine needles are inserted into the skin, people who have undergone acupuncture testify to the fact that it is a painless process and at the most what they feel is a slight tingling sensation when the needles are inserted into the skin. In the same way, the animals that undergo veterinary acupuncture do not feel any pain. Most of them are so comfortable that they fall asleep during the process.

Sterilized needles are used in the process of veterinary acupuncture and the animals are even more relaxed when this process is carried out in their home with their owner or handler present. It is important that only a trained specialist carry out the veterinary acupuncture on the animal to ensure that the treatment works properly.

With veterinary acupuncture, many diseases such as heart problems, allergies, arthritis and infections can be treated painlessly and without any side effects. This process may sometimes be combined with the use of Chinese medicine or herbs, which will be needed to speed up the recovery of the animal.

The number of veterinary acupuncture sessions that an animal may need would depend on its condition. However there should be sufficient breaks between the treatments so that the animal can start healing and show improvement to the sessions.
