Veterinary Medical Acupuncture

Acupuncture alone or combined with laser therapy can help alleviate many conditions ranging from arthritis, intervertebral disc disease, digestive orders, immunologic dysfunction and many others.

Acupuncture is the insertion of small and sterile needles into a patient on various points of the body. Acupuncture in veterinary medicine goes back to well over 3000 years, mostly in livestock and large animal care. Although is has historically been used on mainly large animals, today all animals can benefit from this treatment.

Acupuncture is a medical therapy that has been used in humans and animals as a way of relieving pain and improving health. Today, well over 2,000 U.S veterinarians practice acupuncture. Dr. Rogers has completed her training in veterinary medical acupuncture. Acupuncture alone or combined with laser therapy can help alleviate many conditions ranging from arthritis, inter-vertebral disc disease, digestive disorders, immunologic dysfunction and many others.

There are many questions people about acupuncture. For example, is it painful for my animal? According to vetinfo.com, Over 95% of dogs don't even flinch and surprisingly relax when the needles are inserted into the canine acupuncture points. Many dog owners will notice that their dogs actually happily fall asleep during the treatment.

Are the acupuncture needles safe? The needles that are used during treatment are very small, sterilized, solid core needles. They spread the skin apart, so they transfer very little contamination from the skins surface to the target point.

The treatment is based on your pets diagnosis and Dr. Rogers recommends a total of six initial acupuncture visits to see if the treatment will benefit your pet. Approximately 60% of patients who undergo acupuncture will benefit and there are no bad side effects as there can sometimes be with pharmaceutical treatment.

If you think acupuncture might help your pet call us today at (928)772-6069 to schedule an exam with Dr. Rogers.
