Acupuncture is not only an effective tool for healing in humans; it is also a studied and proven holistic treatment for animals. While our pets cannot always tell us how badly they are hurt, we can see first-hand the relief acupuncture brings to those animals suffering pain and chronic illness. Cats and dogs who were doomed to pain and paralysis happily walk again. As a form of alternative medicine that complements traditional veterinary care, the precise and delicate nature of acupuncture requires specialized training. Dr. Deneen Fasano holds certification from the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society and has over a decade of experience in this field. Pet acupuncture at our Altamonte Springs veterinarian, Animal Healing Solutions, is natural and safe, and it can change your pet's life.
Healing by Pet Acupuncture at Our Vet in Altamonte Springs
When you bring your cat or dog to our practice, Dr. Fasano will create an individualized care plan based on a thorough examination of your pet and his or her health history. This plan determines the exact placement of needles at specific points of nerve bundles and blood vessels in the body that promote healing through pet acupuncture at our vet in Altamonte Springs. These points trigger the body's natural ability to relieve pain and inflammation, improve oxygen and blood flow and remove toxins and metabolic waste. Your pet will not feel pain from the needles and is highly unlikely to experience any side effects from the procedure.
Pet acupuncture is a safe treatment for a number of chronic pain and chronic illness conditions. It can be used in addition to or as an alternative to more traditional Western medical procedures. For pets that are already on medications for other conditions, acupuncture can be the safest treatment option as it does not interfere with drugs. In fact, as the body heals and your pet gains back that pep in his or her step, you may find that the need for prescription medications is reduced or eliminated.
Conditions treated by pet acupuncture include:
- Arthritis, hip dysplasia, traumatic nerve injury, intervertebral disk disease, and other musculoskeletal problems
- Asthma and other respiratory conditions
- Allergic dermatitis, lick granulomas, and other skin irritations
- Systemic inflammatory conditions
- Endocrine disorders
- Certain reproductive problems
