Acupuncture for my pet?
Clients are often surprised to find out that this treatment is available for our patients. In fact, acupuncture has long been used in dogs and cats to treat a number of conditions. This therapy can be especially beneficial for cats as many traditional pain medications are often not approved for use in cats, and are difficult to administer to them.
Acupuncture is one of a variety of therapies we may use to treat conditions such as:
- Chronic Pain
- Disc Maladies
- Marking Behavior in Cats
- And Much More
How will my pet react to this procedure?
Since animals find relief with this therapy, most find it to be a relaxing procedure. Occasionally one gets surprised by the sudden movement of energy and jumps or tries to nip. We are prepared for all reactions. Usually by the second or third visit, the animal has noticed some improvement and, therefore, relaxes.
Is it expensive?
The cost of acupuncture is comparable to that of traditional pharmaceuticals and in many cases can be less expensive. Call our office today at 303-577-0195 for a consultation and find out if acupuncture is right for you.
