What is Veterinary Acupuncture ?

Acupuncture may be defined as the insertion of needles into specific points on the body to produce a healing response. Each acupuncture point has specific actions when stimulated. This technique has been used in veterinary practice in China for thousands of years to treat many ailments. The Chinese also use acupuncture as preventative medicine.

To gain acceptance and validity in Western Medicine, clinical research has been conducted showing positive results in the treatment of both animals and humans.
