Patients often times ask exactly how acupuncture can help horses, dogs and other animals. Often they have family pet who is having trouble with aging, digestion, or other issues.

The answer is the same as the human body, although there are some minor differences in certain aspects (for example where the pulses are checked).

In Oriental Medicine, bodies are bodies, regardless of species!  Similar properties and rules govern a body’s function, whether it belongs to an animal or a human being.

If you would like to get help for your animals, just let us know and we can refer you to a provider closest to your home.
