What is a Veterinary Acupuncturist?

A Veterinary Acupuncturist is a specialized type of Veterinarian. Also known as: Pet Acupuncturist.

A veterinary acupuncturist is someone who uses a non-drug, non-surgical therapy in order to call on the natural healing ability of the pet's body to repair itself to a state of good health. Treatment with acupuncture can use needles, but that's just one of the tools and techniques used. Massage, polarity devices, blood moving approaches, and frequency approaches are also used by a veterinary acupuncturist. Functional problems such as inflammation, arthritis, pain, paralysis, hip dysplasia, asthma, reproductive issues, diarrhea, lick granuloma, and allergies are just some of the things that can be treated. As a general rule, the benefits are cumulative over a series of treatments, and pet owners should prepare for a journey rather than a quick fix.
