Enhancing Pet Health with Acupuncture

Acupuncture, a practice rooted in ancient traditions, finds a modern application at Northridge Animal Medical Center. Through the integration of this time-honored technique with contemporary treatment methodologies, we strive to ensure the well-being of our patients, helping them lead happy, healthy lives.


Holistic Healing: Integrating Eastern and Western Approaches

In conjunction with western medicine, our veterinary acupuncture in Northridge serves as a valuable tool to address and prevent a wide array of conditions. From orthopedic pain and arthritis to gastrointestinal issues and neurological disorders, we employ a holistic, whole-body approach tailored to each patient’s unique needs.

Understanding Acupuncture: How It Works

Central to acupuncture’s efficacy is its ability to correct imbalances in the body’s vital energies, according to Chinese medicine. By enhancing circulation, stimulating the nervous system, and facilitating natural pain relief, acupuncture fosters the body’s innate capacity for self-healing.

Benefits of Pet Acupuncture

Our cat and dog acupuncture in Northridge offers numerous benefits, including pain and inflammation relief, improved blood flow, and stimulation of the body’s natural healing mechanisms. Unlike medication, acupuncture boasts no adverse side effects and safely treats a variety of ailments.


What to Expect During Your Appointment

During the acupuncture session, tiny, sterile needles are gently inserted at specific points on your pet’s body. These needles, soft, flexible, and sterile, induce relaxation, with most animals becoming noticeably relaxed and sleepy during treatment sessions lasting up to 30 minutes.

Frequency of Treatment Sessions

While significant improvement typically requires several weekly sessions, our experienced veterinarians advise a gradual improvement over four to eight weeks for optimal effects. Each pet’s treatment plan is tailored to their specific condition and response to therapy.

Safety and Side Effects

Performed by skilled veterinarians trained in acupuncture techniques, the procedure is exceedingly safe. While some mild side effects like increased relaxation or numbness may occur, they are generally minimal and temporary, ensuring your pet’s comfort and well-being throughout the treatment process.
