Acupuncture Therapy & Chinese Medicine for Animals

Acupuncture for dogs and cats by Tails Chiro Care in Colorado

Acupuncture for Animals

We are so excited to be joining forces with Dr. Meg Bacon to offer acupuncture and Chinese medicine to our Tails family.

We have seen first hand how powerful the combination of chiropractic care and acupuncture can be to get our furry patients feeling better faster and holding their adjustments longer.

Acupuncture for Animals

Acupuncture is the use of a stimulating method (dry needling, moxibustion, aqua-acupuncture, or electro-acupuncture) at a specific point called an acupoint to drive a therapeutic effect. Dr. Bacon utilizes Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM) techniques to assess your pet to achieve a TCVM diagnosis. This is how the specific acupoints can be chosen best looking at the animal as a whole. Therapeutic effects include beta-endorphin release for pain management, stem cell release for injury repair, and enhancement of the immune system. Expect initial acupuncture evaluations or new problem assessments to take slightly over an hour, and progress appointments to take around 45 minutes. Local point acupuncture focused only on pain trigger points is also available for established patients.

Chinese Medicine for Animals

Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM) is used to look at the whole animal. Although local acupuncture points can be useful as part of the treatment, it is only a single ingredient compared to the whole recipe that is TCVM. Acupoints that are more distant or systemic are used based on the TCVM diagnosis to get a better response to treatment. The use of herbal treatments, food changes, or intensifying methods may be recommended for enhanced or faster results. Some animals that cannot tolerate needle therapy can still benefit from laserpuncture, acupressure, and moxabustion techniques.

A Gentle Loving Touch

Animal chiropractic is safe and effective for animals suffering from common conditions such as limping, trouble jumping, stiff movement, jaw pain, joint pain or overall poor performance. Like people, your pets understand the healing power of the human touch and its ability to eliminate the aches and pains they’ve picked up through their lives. A gentle and effective approach will ensure that your pet is calm and at ease while the treatment is given. Dr. Barnes works with your veterinarian to offer your animal the best care possible.
