Why use Pet Acupuncture?
Our practice, via Dr Jessica Bahlmann, is currently offering acupuncture. Acupuncture can be an effective form of pain relief used alone or together with anti-inflammatory drugs. Acupuncture can help both dogs and cats with chronic pain and arthritis, but needs an intact nervous system to be effective. This means that it will not be beneficial to pets with spinal injuries or diseases that cause degeneration of nerves.
The process involves an initial consultation, which includes a full clinical examination to assess whether your pet will benefit from acupuncture treatment. Then, there will be a course of four treatments, at weekly intervals. Thereafter, treatment will be as needed. This can be monthly, three monthly or as indicated by your pet in terms of recurrence of signs of pain.
If you are interested, please contact the practice for further information or an initial appointment.
