For thousands of years, veterinarians in China have utilized acupuncture to treat illnesses and as a preventative measure. To elicit a healing response entails inserting specialized acupuncture needles into predetermined body sites. Numerous problems in all animal species are treated with acupuncture either on its own or in conjunction with conventional western medicine.

When stimulated, each acupuncture point has a unique effect. By causing physiological changes, it aids the body in healing in terms of western medicine. It causes the production of endorphins, which regulate the body’s pain processes, and cortisol, a natural steroid produced by the body.
