Acupuncture is a 3000-year-old Chinese practice that uses hair-thin needles to stimulate the body’s nerve centers, improving blood circulation and releasing pain-relieving hormones. This virtually painless process relaxes muscle tissue at the surrounding area, allowing the body to heal more rapidly.
Our new veterinarian, Dr. Anna Landry, will be offering this minimally invasive, effective way to manage pain and treat various conditions, including:
- Neurologic and soft tissue pain
- Gastrointestinal issues
- Musculoskeletal systemic problems
- Skin conditions
- Respiratory distress
Acupuncture is one of the safest veterinary treatments available. It requires no pharmaceutical assistance, removing the possibility of overdose and adverse reaction, and it can be used in conjunction with most other traditional and alternative treatments.
If your pet suffers from any of the conditions listed above, acupuncture might help. To schedule a veterinary acupuncture consultation or appointment with Dr. Landry, call (504) 834-0906 or book an appointment on our website.
