Acupuncture is a non-painful procedure to stimulate healing and pain relief without drugs. It is used extensively in veterinary practices throughout the UK, Europe, Australia and the USA, but does it really work?
Well, yes, according to those who have tried and seen the results.
Dogs, cats and horses have all benefited from its gentle healing effects. With its popularity on the rise among pet owners, 96% of pet insurers now cover alternative treatments, such as acupuncture, as standard.
This guide explains how it works and why it has fast become a popular treatment.
Musculoskeletal problems are most commonly treated using acupuncture. Arthritis, back and neck pain, lameness and post-operative recovery can all respond.
Acupuncture is used commonly to treat dogs with hip arthritis due to hip dysplasia, elbow arthritis due to elbow dysplasia and all three conditions due to wear and tear in older dogs. Incontinence in females and sinusitis with nasal discharge can often be helped, too, so it’s not just a dog's joints we need to be thinking about.
Traditional theories about acupuncture work on the premise of returning balance by working along the dog's points and meridians which are stimulated via touch or pressure and the areas focused on depends on the dog's needs.
