Cat and Dog Acupuncture in Stevenson Ranch
Acupuncture has been used for thousands of years to treat a wide variety of ailments. It’s also a valuable tool for managing chronic, painful medical conditions. As part of our commitment to providing the most comprehensive treatment options available, Stevenson Ranch Veterinary Center is pleased to offer veterinary acupuncture.
An Explanation of Acupuncture
This ancient treatment method uses tiny needles to stimulate the body’s natural healing and pain control mechanisms. There are hundreds of external points along the body which correspond to internal areas, such as muscle groups, joints and organs. When the acupuncture needles are gently inserted into the appropriate acupoint, the body responds by releasing pain-relief hormones. Cat and dog acupuncture is also believed to restore inner balance, which can promote a longer, healthier life.

Cat and dog acupuncture can be used as a standalone treatment or in conjunction with our traditional medical services to achieve optimum results.

Number of Acupuncture Treatments Needed
For some animals, the positive results of acupuncture can be noticeable after just one session. We will evaluate your pet’s specific condition to determine the number, duration and frequency of treatments we would recommend.
