Alternative Treatments from Great Falls Animal Hospital
According to ancient Chinese medical philosophy, disease is the result of an imbalance or blockage of energy in the body. Acupuncture is believed to balance this energy and release the blockage, thereby assisting the body to heal disease. Great Falls Animal Hospital is proud to offer acupuncture for animals.
Acupuncture and holistic remedies can also be useful as an adjunct to Western therapy. Conditions that may respond especially well include:
- Arthritis or vertebral disc problems
- Skin problems
- Respiratory problems
- Gastrointestinal problems
- Selected reproductive problems
- Nervous system problems
Benefits of Acupuncture
Acupuncture can provide effective pain relief and can improve the comfort level of our pet patients. In some instances, it can be a potential alternative to surgery. Though the success may vary depending on the severity of the pain and the number of treatments, it is a safe and relatively pain-free option that many of our pet parents opt to try in lieu of other methods.
