What conditions is acupuncture used for?

Many pet owners have never tried acupuncture themselves and worry if it’s safe, painful, or effective for their cat or dog. According to the Chi Institute, acupuncture has a myriad of benefits for your pet, some of which include pain relief, the promotion of tissue healing, regulation of gastrointestinal motility, immunoregulation, antifebrile effects, and reproductive and hormone regulation.

What conditions can acupuncture treat?

  • Musculoskeletal problems such as arthritis or intervertebral disc pathology
  • Skin problems such as lick granulomas
  • Respiratory problems such as feline asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease
  • Gastrointestinal problems such as inflammatory bowel disease and diarrhea

Additionally, regular acupuncture treatment can treat minor sports injuries and help keep muscles and tendons resistant to injury. If your animals participate in athletic efforts such as agility, flyball or showing, acupuncture can help keep them in top physical condition.
