What Is Acupuncture?
According to ancient Chinese medical philosophy, disease is the result of an imbalance of energy in the body. Acupuncture is believed to balance this energy and thereby assist the body to heal disease. For small animals, inserting acupuncture needles is virtually painless. Acupuncture is one of the safest forms of medical treatment for animals.
It can be used to treat conditions such as:
- Acute and chronic pet illness
- Arthritis pain and musculoskeletal illness
- Gastrointestinal disease
- Internal organ disease
- Neurological disease
- Skin disease
Acupuncture sessions usually take 30 minutes or less and can be performed one to three times per week. There are no systemic side effects, so acupuncture is perfectly safe, even for older pets or pets in poor health. We encourage you to learn more about the benefits of pet acupuncture in Jacksonville and to discuss this treatment with our veterinarians.
