At West Boulevard Veterinary Clinic, we proudly offer acupuncture! This treatment is a drug-free pain management option for pets in many different health conditions.
Acupuncture is the insertion of needles into specific points on the body in order to bring about a desired healing effect. The placement of needles causes very little, if any, discomfort. Once situated they are painless. During a treatment most animals become very relaxed, they may become sleepy and yawn. The number of needles, their placement and needling technique employed varies from case to case, as does the duration of treatment.
The duration of treatment can be as short as a few seconds to as long as thirty minutes. The number of sessions and their timing varies with the problem being treated. Most cases will need up to six treatments at varying time intervals, however some will require only one or two treatments.
