Acupuncture

Acupuncture is the insertion of very fine needles into specific designated points on an animal. These specific points are called acupuncture points and are mapped for each species’ body. In veterinary practice, acupuncture has been used to treat musculoskeletal pain among other problems, often in conjunction with other therapies. Traditional Chinese medicine has used acupuncture for over 4000 years.
