What Is Veterinary Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a medical treatment that has been used for decades but has only recently been accepted by Western medicine. We are AAHA-credited and offer a gentle, holistic approach to pet care. Our compassionate vet uses thin, long, sterile needles to stimulate acupoints to promote nerve activity and encourage healing in your pet’s body. Acupoints are specific locations where the nerves and blood vessels are close together, and targeting these specific locations can improve your dog or cat’s health.

What Can Acupuncture for Dogs and Cats Address?

Acupuncture is an effective treatment for a wide range of disorders because we customize the service to target the focal acupoints at the source of the issue. By targeting the nerves and blood vessels in certain areas, this treatment causes an immune response that increases blood flow, releases endorphins, or reduces inflammation. Whether you select acupuncture as a stand-alone service or as part of your pet’s treatment plan, it can yield positive results. Here are some of the issues acupuncture for cats and dogs can address:

  • Pain Management
  • Vomiting
  • Arthritis
  • Nausea
  • Behavioral Issues
  • Anxiety
  • Allergies

Our Veterinary Acupuncture Process

We believe that your pet deserves quality, personalized care, which is why we offer integrative medicinal treatments that combine Western and Eastern medical options like acupuncture. Our friendly team will take the time to get to know you and ask questions about your pet, its needs, and any concerns you have about changes in its behavior or body. We understand that you know your furry friend better than anyone, and we value your insight about your pet.

Our vet begins with a thorough nose-to-tail examination of your cat or dog, including their teeth and gums, to determine the source of the problem and how best to address it. We blend years of experience and study with a compassionate touch to identify your pet’s needs and build a trusting bond to alleviate anxiety. Our team creates a custom treatment plan to target specific acupoints on your pet to address their unique needs.

Acupuncture consists of a series of treatments that only last for 10-30 minutes. We’ll discuss how many successive appointments your pet needs and how soon the appointments will taper off. Your pet may seem nervous at first, but they begin to relax and might fall asleep during their acupuncture appointment as their body responds to the treatment.

Dog and Cat Acupuncture FAQs

Selecting the right treatment for your pet can seem complicated, which is why we encourage you to share your questions and concerns. Our team is happy to provide the information and resources you need to feel confident in your pet’s treatment plan. Here are some of the most common questions we receive about cat and dog acupuncture in Brampton:

What can I expect after my dog gets acupuncture?

Your dog may seem tired or slightly sore after acupuncture due to the body’s natural response to the treatment. Your pet will be back to normal in a day or two.

What are the side effects of acupuncture in animals?

For many pets, acupuncture is safe and effective with few or no side effects. However, any procedure poses risks, and our team will review the potential side effects with you before the treatment.

How long does acupuncture take to work in pets?

Acupuncture is a cumulative treatment, so you may not see instant results. However, you may notice results after a couple treatments. Our team will provide helpful insight so you know what results your pet will enjoy and how soon to expect them.
