Veterinary Acupuncture for Your Dog

Veterinary Acupuncture for Your Dog DogsizedWho would have ever thought to use acupuncture on your dog, but apparently this is a legit solution option. Essentially it’s just the same as using acupuncture in the human body in that it’s used as a holistic method to help the body heal itself.

With acupuncture, the veterinarian (trained in traditional Chinese veterinary medicine, aka TCVM), inserts needles into body tissue where nerve bundles and blood vessels come together.
Allegedly, this produces enhanced blood circulation, nervous system stimulation, and the release of anti-inflammatory and pain relieving hormones. As a result, this apparently encourages healing by correcting energy imbalances in the body.

The upside is that veterinary acupuncture lacks potential adverse side effects for your dog which might occur with prescription and over the counter pain medications.
