Acupuncture for pets? That’s right! While the treatment is over three thousand years old, not many people know that it is extremely beneficial for their dog or cat for a variety of reasons. This nearly painless procedure uses extremely thin needles in order to stimulate nerve centers. This improves your pet’s blood circulation, releases pain-relieving hormones, relaxes muscle tissue and helps their body heal faster.
At Southern Hills Veterinary Hospital in Tulsa, we now provide this safe and helpful service with Dr. Murray. Some, but not all, of the disorders that acupuncture can treat includes:
- Skin Conditions
- Neurologic Pain
- Respiratory Issues
- Musculoskeletal Systemic Issues
- And More
We understand that a procedure requiring needles doesn’t sound like the most pleasant time for your pet, but they can barely feel a thing and after the acupuncture begins to properly align your animal’s “chi”, their bodily processes will get back to normal and they’ll feel absolutely incredible!
Not only is it virtually painless, but it is also one of the safest veterinary treatments possible and requires zero pharmaceutical assistance, so you don’t have to worry about any adverse reactions or a possible overdose.
Along with our acupuncture treatment, Southern Hills Veterinary Hospital is proud to provide a multitude of animal care services including:
- Pet Emergency
- Dental Care
- Canine Preventative Care
- Feline Preventative Care
- And More!
We’re really excited to offer this treatment and we know your cat or dog will love it! To learn more about acupuncture and the benefits it provides, or to schedule an appointment for your fuzzy little best friend, contact us today. Our entire staff is experienced, knowledgeable, and most importantly, care about the well-being of each and every animal that we take care of! We look forward to meeting you and your cherished pet(s)!
