Here at Walker Valley Veterinary Hospital in Walker Valley, NY, we treat a range of conditions from arthritis to skin allergies. Our goal is to keep your pet happy and healthy. Often, that means managing pain and potentially helping to increase mobility.


Sometimes, prescription or over-the counter medications are warranted. However, at other times, more natural methods might be more helpful in healing your pet. One such technique we've found may be valuable is acupuncture. Read on for more information on how animal acupuncture works and how it might help your pet.

How Does Pet Acupuncture Work?

Acupuncture is an ancient Eastern medical practice where fine and flexible needles are inserted under the skin at specific points in the body. The pressure of the needles helps to release anti-inflammatory and pain relieving chemicals to help provide relief and other potential benefits.

How Can Acupuncture Help My Pet?

A veterinarian on our team may suggest acupuncture in addition to traditional treatments (like medication) or on its own for conditions such as:

●             Arthritis and inflammation

●             Back pain

●             Anxiety

●             Gastrointestinal issues

Acupuncture may be a great alternative for healing and pain relief if your pet is unable to take traditional medication due to allergies or negative reactions. If you are interested in learning more about how acupuncture may help your pet recover, give a pet doctor on our team a call.
