A dog being treated with acupuncture


Acupuncture is the insertion of small needles into specific points on the body to cause a desired healing effect. This technique has been used in Veterinary practice for at least 3000 years to treat many ailments, and to treat various acute and chronic conditions in animals.

The American Veterinary Association considers veterinary acupuncture a valid modality within the practice of veterinary medicine and surgery. Used either by itself or in conjunction with western medicine, veterinary acupuncture can assist the body to heal itself by affecting certain physiological changes.
