Acupuncture has been in use for thousand of years and is part of Veterinary Cancer Group's comprehensive approach.
Acupuncture is the insertion of small needles into specific points on the body to cause a desired healing effect. This technique has been used in veterinary practice for thousands of years to treat many ailments. Used either by itself or in conjunction with Western medicine, acupuncture can assist the body to heal itself by affecting certain physiological changes.
Conditions That Can Benefit From Acupuncture include:
Musculoskeletal and neurologic problems
Arthritis and hip dysplasia
Intervertebral disk disease
Stroke, paralysis, nerve injuries
Chronic ear infections
Inflammatory bowel disease
Nausea secondary to chemotherapy
Dry eye (Keratoconjunctivitis Sicca)
Immune support for cancer patients
