Veterinary acupuncture is an ancient medical treatment which involves placing needles into certain pressure points just under the skin or in muscle with a good nerve supply. When we stimulate an acupuncture point we get a response at three levels. At the local level (in the area of most pain), there is a beneficial effect on circulation, immune function and muscle relaxation. At the spinal level, acupuncture inhibits pain in the affected spinal segment. At the central (brain) level, a release of neurotransmitters, hormones and endorphins produces further pain relief and a sense of well-being.

Acupuncture for dogs and cats can be useful in the treatment of both acute injury and chronic disease, and can also be particularly helpful for long-term pain relief in animals that react badly to conventional drugs. It’s also been known to speed up recovery after any kind of surgery. Veterinary acupuncture in the UK is an act of veterinary surgery and can only be performed by a qualified vet.
