Acupuncture for Healing & Recovery Support

In traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture is used as a way to promote the healing process for pets by renewing the balance of energy throughout their body. 

In modern terms, acupuncture can help by improving blood flow, which boosts oxygenation in tissues. It works to help relieve pain and reduce inflammation in your pet's body. 

At Pets on Broadway Animal Hospital, we feel that we can obtain the best results by using pet acupuncture in conjunction with standard medical treatments to help restore your pet's health and vitality.

The Acupuncture Technique

Cat or dog acupuncture involves inserting tiny needles into an animal's body at precise points called meridians, where the blood vessels converge with the nerves. The needles help guide vital energy along these meridians, supporting the nervous system and promoting circulation while enhancing the body's healing abilities. 

Common Acupuncture Uses

Our Denver vets often recommend the use of acupuncture for a number of issues, including:

  • Pain Management

    Medical treatments such as chemotherapy can feel very uncomfortable for your pet. They will often be combined with acupuncture in an effort to relieve some discomfort, helping your cat or dog to fight their illness. 

  • Musculoskeletal Issues

    Acupuncture can often be used for injury rehabilitation. Conditions such as arthritis, nerve injuries and hip dysplasia also tend to respond well to acupuncture. 

  • Dermatology & Skin Issues

    Acupuncture treatment can help encourage increased circulation, which can help hot spots, granulomas and allergic dermatitis. It can also improve healing and reduce pain, leading to less itching and subsequent over-grooming. 

  • Gastrointestinal Issues

    Acupuncture may stimulate digestive secretions, which helps to promote healthy digestive activity. Conditions such as diarrhea or nausea may benefit from increased blood flow. 

  • Respiratory Issues

    The immune-calming and anti-inflammatory capabilities of acupuncture treatment can improve asthma, allergies and other conditions.

  • Pets in poor health will benefit from the lack of systemic side effects
