An Introduction to Veterinary Acupuncture

Aspen Park Veterinary Hospital of Colorado is distinctive in that it offers nontraditional as well as traditional medicine for companion animals. Aspen Park Veterinary Hospital’s practitioners have trained in acupuncture and other holistic procedures in order to offer the most complete care possible.

Similar to traditional human acupuncture, veterinary acupuncture treats pain and discomfort by stimulating the body’s healing processes. Veterinarians have used this methodology to alleviate such varied conditions as arthritis, asthma, diarrhea, and dermatitis. Stimulation of acupuncture points prompts the body to increase circulation and encourage natural homeostasis. It has been shown to have long-term healing as well as diagnostic and preventive benefits.
