Like Turning Back the Clock

Like Turning Back the Clock. Does your dog struggle with pain when you take him for walks? Is it hard for your cat to get up and down the stairs? Just like us, our pets can lose mobility and suffer from age-related pains, as they get older.

Whether it’s arthritis, tendonitis, hip dysplasia, or injury, a licensed animal acupuncturist can help your pet feel better. And you’ll see the results, sometimes right away, without the side effects that can come with pain medications.

Imagine your dog running and playing in the yard again, fetching his favorite old tennis ball. Picture your cat bounding up the stairs to chase an imaginary bug, or leaping in mid-air to catch a string…even if he hasn’t done it in years. Your dog may act like a puppy or, your cat may leap like a kitten, with restored mobility and vitality, but no more pain. In other cases, the acupuncturist may be able to slow down the process of “dis-ease”, providing you and your pet with a better quality of life.

Dozens of studies have shown just how well acupuncture works on pain, for all kinds of animals…from cats and dogs to horses and even ferrets. The treatment itself is virtually pain-free, so you don’t have to worry about the hair-thin needles causing your pet any pain. The animals usually relax completely once the needles are in place, allowing for a stress free alternative to some other more invasive treatments.
