Acupuncture is an ancient medical practice that originated in China thousands of years ago. In involves stimulating areas of the body with very thin needles to alleviate pain and treat other health conditions. It is believed to promote healing by correcting energy imbalances.
Acupuncture has long since been used for humans, and now veterinarians are turning to this practice to treat pain and illness in animals.
Acupuncture may be used to treat:
- Joint inflammation
- Degenerative joint disease
- Hip dysplasia
- Chronic pain
- Spinal cord conditions
- Lick granulomas (lesions on dogs’ legs)
At Keystone Animal Hospital, we offer acupuncture for pets in Oxford. All acupuncture sessions are performed by our highly trained and experienced veterinarians.
Some of the benefits of acupuncture for pets include:
- No harmful side effects
- Relaxes muscles – and thus reduces pain – both at the site of needle insertion and throughout the body
- Improved blood flow
Cold laser therapy is a non-invasive procedure that can promote cell regeneration and increased blood circulation by treating the surface of your pet’s skin.
Laser therapy may be used to treat:
- Tendon injuries
- Soft tissue injuries
- Chronic pain
- Hot spots and open wounds
- Degenerative disc disease
- Post-surgical trauma
Laser therapy is safe and painless – in fact, many pets find it quite relaxing and may even fall asleep during treatment! We will not need to shave the treatment area or sedate your pet. He or she will either stand or lay down during the process.
