Colorado Animal acupuncture
Acupuncture for animals involves the insertion of fine solid needles into specific points on the body to cause a desired healing effect. Acupuncture works by stimulating the nervous system, endocrine system and immune system in the body.
Veterinary acupuncture can be successfully combined with conventional veterinary medicine to enlist the patient’s natural healing mechanisms. An integrative approach for many patients can help reduce the duration of hospitalization and improve outcomes. It can also improve quality of life of many of our senior patients with chronic debilitating conditions by improving mobility and reducing pain. It can replace Western medications when animals cannot take them due to kidney, liver or stomach disease. Acupuncture can support and improve organ disease when Western medicine has little to offer.
