Veterinary Acupuncture

Veterinary Acupuncture:

Burnet Road Animal Hospital provides veterinary acupuncture treatments for dogs and cats in. Pet acupuncture produces a healing response by targeting specific points on your pet’s body. Your pet’s acupuncture treatment is performed in a calm and relaxed atmosphere at our animal hospital. This treatment is not painful to your dog or cat and is performed without general anesthesia.

Veterinary acupuncture treatment can be used as an alternative to medications or as part of a multi-modal approach to help your pet achieve the desired therapeutic benefits. Our doctor will customize a treatment program for your pet, which may involve multiple treatment sessions. Although acupuncture is not appropriate for every condition, it can work very well when used for conditions such as:

  • Gastrointestinal disorders
  • Respiratory problems
  • Neurological disorders
  • Musculoskeletal disorders
  • Chronic and acute pain
  • Orthopedic conditions
  • Skin conditions
