What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a form of treatment that involves inserting very thin needles into specific points on the body to cause a desired healing effect. This technique has been scientifically proven to treat many ailments. Since it is a gentle, non-invasive treatment, it is often an effective option for sick and injured pets. Acupuncture is especially helpful for health conditions such as arthritis, traumatic nerve injury, certain skin conditions, gastrointestinal issues, and more.
Acupuncture and other integrative modalities are tailored to your pet’s specific needs. Treatments take place in our hospital in a quiet area, free of distractions and vary from 30 to 60 minutes depending on the patient.
Our Integrative Medicine Services include:
• Dry Needle Acupuncture
• Laser Therapy
• Therapeutic Exercise
Acupuncture and Integrative Medicine services are offered at our Escondido practice by Tessa Sghiatti, DVM.
