Is your dog suffering from pain or having difficulty moving? Our Family Veterinary Services in Peabody MA now offering Acupuncture & Holistic Medicine for pets.

Worried about how your dog will react? Dogs actually like acupuncture. Most dogs fall asleep or become very relaxed once the needles are placed.

The treatment is often used for pain and chronic disease, and movement disorders such as hip dysplasia, especially in older dogs. Acupuncture works through helping to maintain the health of the body. The basic principles of acupuncture are the same in animals as in humans. Chinese medical theory states that disease is the result of a blockage in energy flow (Qi or Chi) along pathways in the body. Inserting needles into these pathways unblocks the energy and restores health. I sometimes use magnets and lasers to enhance the effectiveness of the needles. Though many people are a bit squeamish about needles, most dogs don't mind at all. Acupuncture in animals was first used on the horses of Chinese emperors over 2,000 years ago and has been widely used in the treatment of horses in America for decades.
