Pet Acupuncture

Acupuncture has been practiced on animals for thousands of years, even though it is most famous for treating humans. Acupuncture is a technique that includes inserting very fine needles into the skin at specific spots along the meridians.

It’s most typically used to alleviate pain, but it’s also used to treat metabolic abnormalities, skin illness, and mental health. Myofascial tissue, a thin saran-like coating that surrounds all muscles, muscle fibers, and nerves, is also affected by acupuncture.

Pet Acupuncture

Acupuncture is the use of sterile thin needles to stimulate specific points in the body. Stimulation of these points generates the flow of Qi through specific channels in the body called meridians. Qi is the animating force that allows cells, organs, and systems to function. The body is designed to maintain balance (homeostasis). Disease processes, lifestyle excesses and deficiencies, unhealthy habits, and even negative thoughts counteract the body’s ability to maintain balance, resulting in disease symptoms. Acupuncture is used to resolve symptoms by restoring balance and health. This healing process begins with the flow of Qi. Dr. Bernie practices traditional Western medicine and traditional Chinese medicine. Integrative veterinary medicine individualizes each patient’s treatment plan according to the specific needs of the patient.
