How does Acupuncture work?
Acupuncture is safe, and is now available at Swanbourne Vet Centre!
- Musculoskeletal system – lameness, for example osteoarthritis
- Neurological system – epilepsy, or paresis/paralysis associated with back issues
- Digestive system – chronic gastrointestinal issues such as poor appettie and diarrhoea
Usually it takes at least four treatments to assess the effect of the acupuncture. We encourage you make a commitment to finish the first four treatments, before assessing the benefit of acupuncture for your pet.
Acupuncture may not be cheaper than conventional medicines, but it is considered to have far less side effects, especially when treating arthritis in older dogs.
Any questions you may have regarding acupuncture and its suitability for your best friend, are best answered by Dr Monica. Please call the clinic on (08) 9384 2644 for further information.
