Indian Tree Animal Hospital

Acupuncture

At Indian Tree Animal Hospital, we understand that the treatment of certain conditions benefits from the scope of both Western and Eastern medical approaches. Veterinary acupuncture, in combination with traditional medicine, allows our veterinary team to treat an array of acute and chronic conditions in our patients, such as arthritis, wound repair, spinal cord trauma, and much more.

Veterinary Acupuncture

Acupuncture works primarily through the central nervous system affecting the musculoskeletal, hormonal, and cardiovascular systems to increase circulation and causes release of endorphins, neurohormones, and neurotransmitters. Acupuncture relieves muscle spasms, stimulates nerves and the body's immune system, and treats individual organ system disorders. Acupuncture can be used to maintain and promote balance in healthy individuals, as well as to treat a wide variety of conditions. These conditions include, but are not limited to:

  • hip dysplasia/ chronic arthritic conditions
  • acute muscle, tendon and bone injuries (often best used in conjunction with western modalities)
  • pre- and post-operative pain management
  • spinal cord trauma including paresis (weakness) and paralysis
  • control nausea in cancer patients to improve appetite and boost the immune system
  • gastrointestinal disorders: vomiting, diarrhea, constipation and inflammatory bowel disease
  • kidney disease
  • urinary incontinence and retention
  • respiratory disorders: upper respiratory infections, chronic bronchitis, and asthma
  • seizures
  • separation anxiety
  • disorders of the immune system
  • skin conditions
  • liver disease
  • heart disease
  • endocrine disorders including thyroid disorders
  • geriatric patient management to improve the general quality of life.


Often times the best treatment is a combination of Western and Eastern approaches.
