Pet Acupuncture & Integrative Medicine in Alachua, FL
Acupuncture is a form of traditional Chinese medicine that has been practiced for thousands of years. Acupuncture focuses on encouraging the body’s natural healing responses to aid in the treatment of pain and other ailments by inserting small needles at specific points of the body. Acupuncture relaxes muscles throughout the body, including those in the area where the needle is inserted, which reduces pain both locally and more widely. By encouraging the production of naturally occurring pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory chemicals, acupuncture may help treat these pets with fewer pain medications.
While pet acupuncture is most commonly used to treat joint problems, it can also be effective for treating digestive issues, skin problems, and other chronic conditions. In addition, pet acupuncture is often used to boost the immune system and help animals recover from injury or surgery. As a result, it has become an increasingly popular option for pet owners looking for an alternative to traditional medical treatments. While pet acupuncture is generally considered to be safe, it is important to consult with our trained doctors before scheduling an appointment. Our doctors will be able to assess whether or not pet acupuncture is the right treatment for your pet’s specific condition.
