Although it is often known for its use on humans, acupuncture has been used on animals for thousands of years.
Veterinary acupuncture has been used for centuries to relieve pain, improve circulation, and promote healing. During an acupuncture session, fine needles are inserted into specific points on the body. This stimulates the release of endorphins, which helps to reduce pain and inflammation. Acupuncture is a safe and effective treatment with little to no side effects.
