Acupuncture involves the insertion of small needles at locations across the body in order to stimulate the nervous system. As the body’s main communication network, the nervous system is capable of altering biochemical and physiologic properties of any intact body system.
When can acupuncture be used?
Safety and pain concerns
For most animals, the insertion of small acupuncture needles is virtually painless. Once the needles are in place, there should be no pain at all. Actually, many animals become very relaxed or sleepy with their needles.
Acupuncture is performed using sterile, single-use needles which minimizes the possibility of infection. And because acupuncture balances the body’s own system of healing and no chemicals are administered, complications rarely, if ever, develop.
Continuity of care is very important. Our veterinarians review patient medical records from all previous clinics prior to each appointment.
You will never feel rushed with VetPronto. We deliberately schedule plenty of time to perform a complete examination and discuss any findings.
We understand that amazing veterinary care doesn't start and end with a single appointment. Feel free to call or email anytime.
