Acupuncture is the insertion of special needles into specific points of the body to achieve a healing response. It is useful for managing a wide variety of conditions, including:
  • Pain management
  • Slipped disc/ Intervertebral disc disease
  • Arthritis and lameness
  • Cat flu and pneumonia
  • Skin conditions
  • Neurological disorders
  • Kidney and liver disease
  • Behavioural conditions such as anxiety and obsessive compulsive behaviour 
Acupuncture is a very safe and effective form of treatment for many species, including dogs, cats and rabbits. When practised by veterinarians trained in acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM), adverse effects are extremely rare. By combining TCVM with Western Veterinary Medicine, the advantages of both paradigms can be integrated to achieve the best outcome for our patients.
