Here at Sapphire Animal Hospital, we specialize in acupuncture.
Acupuncture is when a set of needles is inserted into parts of the animal to promote healing. Each acupuncture point has a specific goal. This technique has been used in various veterinary practices for thousands of years and will treat any ailment. Although acupuncture will not cure every condition, it will work extremely well when there is as issue.
Small dogs and large dogs will actually respond to acupuncture differently. Small dogs will typically receive acupuncture because of musculoskeletal problems such as arthritis, intervertebral disk disease, or traumatic nerve injury. They also come in for skin problems such as lick granulomas and allergic dermatitis. Acupuncture can assist in healing all of these problems.
Large animals will benefit from acupuncture a little bit differently but for similar problems. Some of these include musculoskeletal problems such as sore backs or downer cow syndrome, respiratory problems, reproductive problems, and gastrointestinal problems such as nonsurgical colic.
Our helpful and friendly staff will work with you and your pet to ensure that he or she gets the best experience possible. We have seen many animals heal from acupuncture and would love to see your pet receive these same benefits as well.
