Acupuncture for Dog

Have Your Pets Had Acupuncture?

I know, first doggie blood donors and now acupuncture?! As it turns out veterinary acupuncturists are growing in popularity as they can work to cure a variety of ailments or diseases and relieve inflammation and stress for furry friends. Since some incorporate other treatments such as chiropractic and massage therapy, it could be considered an integrative health approach . . . but for animals.

My brother's dog had acupuncture and physical therapy after he injured his leg. It really helped him recover.

This is funny, just yesterday one of the women my mother walks our dogs with was talking about doggy acupuncture. I wasn't totally paying attention so I don't know what she said, but I remember it was about acupuncture!

Hey I love my dog like a sister, or a child even shes just the best puppy Ive had the chance to know so far in my life, so if she wasnt feeling well often, and I didnt want to give her a bunch of medication, which i wouldnt because i wouldnt want to be over medicated I would try it, as a natural alternative to possibly help my dog feel better. I mean people have been doing it for thousands of years, why not our lovable little fur balls if they need it? dogs have pain and sickness to why not see if it might take some away, make your dog a little more spry.
