  • Vet giving a dog acupuncture treatment


Could your furry family member benefit from natural pain relief?

Acupuncture is an excellent tool for helping animals enjoy more comfortable lives. Best of all, it’s all natural so there’s no risk of harmful side effects that pharmaceuticals can sometimes cause. This makes it particularly beneficial for elderly pets or those who cannot tolerate medication.

Sibley Animal Hospital is pleased to include veterinary acupuncture as one of our integrative therapy options.

What is veterinary acupuncture?

Acupuncture operates under the theory that when the body’s natural energy source becomes disrupted, sickness and pain can occur. To address this, special acupuncture needles are inserted into specific points along the body, causing a cellular response in the targeted area. This restores the body’s natural energy, thereby promoting healing and reducing pain.

What conditions can be treated through acupuncture?

Acupuncture can be used to address a wide variety of health problems. It can also be used to boost the immune system and support ongoing wellness. Some of the conditions commonly treated with acupuncture include:

  • Arthritis
  • Back Pain
  • Joint Problems
  • Sprains and Strains
  • Hip Dysplasia
  • Respiratory Problems
  • Digestive Issues
  • Neurological Conditions
  • Senior Pet Health

How many treatments will my pet need?

While the results of acupuncture can sometimes be seen after just a few sessions, every pet is different. The specific condition, its severity and a number of other factors will help our doctors determine how many treatments are needed. Once your pet has been evaluated, we’ll provide you with a customized treatment recommendation.

If your pet is struggling with pain or mobility issues or could just use a little more balance, acupuncture may be the ideal solution. Contact Sibley Animal Hospital today to learn more or schedule a consultation.
