Pets Can Get Acupuncture, Too!
Did you know that our very own Dr. Marianne is a Certified Pet Acupuncturist? For your convenience, Dr. Marianne is available to treat your pets with acupuncture at the hospital.
So, how exactly does pet acupuncture work?
Acupuncture helps the body heal itself. This ancient Chinese practice utilizes hair-thin needles to stimulate the body’s nerve centers, improving blood circulation and releasing pain-relieving hormones. This virtually painless process relaxes muscle tissue and oxygenates the surrounding area, allowing the body to heal more rapidly.
Many disorders can be treated with acupuncture including:
- Neurologic and soft tissue pain
- Chronic allergies
- Nerve and spinal cord injuries
- Gastrointestinal issues
- Musculoskeletal systemic problems
- Skin conditions
- And more!
Acupuncture is also one of the safest veterinary treatments available. It requires no pharmaceutical assistance, removing the possibility of overdose and adverse reaction. Plus, it can be safely used in conjunction with traditional veterinary practice to enhance treatment effects or facilitate faster recovery.
If you’re interested in seeking different avenues for your pet’s care, we encourage you to give acupuncture a try! Dr. Marianne would love to meet your pet to help heal them. To make an appointment for your pet, or to discuss any questions you might have about this treatment option, please contact us at 303-838-4677.
Our experienced staff can determine the medical cause for your pet’s unusual behavior and work thoroughly to fix the problem, helping them return to their happy and loving selves.
