Acupuncture for Animals in Issaquah, Washington

What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is the use of tiny needles, placed at various locations, to alleviate pain and help the animals organs function more efficiently. Many people (although not animals) have a learned aversion to medicinal needles, which are rigid and relatively large gauge.

Acupuncture needles are extremely thin and flexible and therefore relatively painless and well tolerated by nearly all our patients. The needles bring about a calming and comforting effect, and many animals look forward to their treatments. Acupuncture in the U.S. is mostly known for treating musculoskeletal disorders such as hip dysphasia, arthritis, sprains, and back problems.

However, acupuncture can be used to treat a variety of problems such as metabolic disorders (diabetes), hormonal imbalances (hypo or hyper-thyroidism), immunologic suppression (feline leukemia and aids), respiratory disease (colds or pneumonia), gastrointestinal upset (vomiting and diarrhea) and some neurologic disorders (seizures).

Treatments are initially given weekly, and can usually be decreased to every 2-4 weeks once the animal’s condition improves.
