Acupuncture for Pets

Acupuncture has been around for centuries and some pet parents think that this may be a better alternative to managing their pets pain.


Acupuncture has been used in China for thousands of years to produce a healing response in the body. Acupuncture involves the insertion of needles into certain points of the body where nerve bundles and blood vessels intersect. Through placement in these energy channels, the needles enhance blood circulation and stimulate the release of hormones with the goal of encouraging the body to correct imbalances. More and more pet parents are trying acupuncture for dogs and cats.


Acupuncture is virtually painless for small animals, and many owners find their pets become relaxed or even sleepy when the needles are in place. But feelings like tingling or numbness have been noted in human acupuncture patients, so some animals may show small amounts of discomfort from the new sensations.

A newer development in animal acupuncture is the use of lasers instead of needles for a completely painless experience.

Unlike some medical treatments, there is a very low risk of any side effects from properly performed acupuncture.


1. Pain management is one of the most common uses for acupuncture, often in conjunction with a more traditional treatment plan. Strong medical treatments like chemotherapy, which can cause discomfort, are often paired with acupuncture to help make a pet more comfortable and able to fight the illness.

2. Musculoskeletal problems such as dyplasia, arthritis,   or nerve injuries can respond to acupuncture. It is often employed during rehabilitation after an injury. Carefully monitoring a healing pet is important; without the feeling of pain, a dog can re-injure him or herself with over-activity.

3. Skin problems like hot spots or allergic dermatitis,  may respond well to acupuncture treatment because increased circulation can improve healing, while pain reduction will reduce a pet’s over grooming or itching responses.

4. Gastrointestinal problems like nausea and diarrhea  can be aided by the increased blood flow from acupuncture. It may also help normalize digestive activity by stimulating digestive secretions.

5. Respiratory problems like asthma and allergies  benefit from the immune-calming, anti-inflammatory capabilities of acupuncture
