Acupuncture has become one of the leading alternative treatments worldwide. It’s said to cure physical and mental distress with many studies that support this. But what about dogs? Can acupuncture give them the same relief?

Modern research has demonstrated acupuncture’s effects on the nervous system, endocrine and immune systems, cardiovascular system, and digestive system. The needle is placed at specific points in the body and stimulates the nerve. The nerve sends signals to the brain, and the brain releases neural hormones.

Pros and Cons of canine/dog acupuncture Pros (or benefits) of acupuncture are:

An acupuncture treatment may provide relief from chronic pain, headaches, or other symptoms

An acupuncture treatment usually causes no side effects

The animal may feel relaxed during and after an acupuncture treatment

It’s usually painless

Cons (negative aspects) of acupuncture are:

Sometimes the symptoms that brought you to the acupuncturist may take few sessions before they start to get better

As with any medical treatment, not everyone will have an improvement in their symptoms after acupuncture Expensive!

There may not be a definitive answer to whether acupuncture is effective, but the number of vets and pet owners integrating it into a wellness routine is growing. It’s gaining more acceptance in traditional veterinary spheres. Most of the evidence in support of acupuncture for animals is anecdotal, from pet owners themselves or veterinary practitioners, but countless testimonials and scientific research have shown that acupuncture can both safely and effectively reduce physical and psychological problems.

Thanks for watching!
