Is acupuncture safe, and does it hurt?
Acupuncture needles come in a variety of sizes. Only sterile, single-use needles are used.
It is a very safe, drug and chemical free therapy, and it is very rare for there to be any side effects.
Acupuncture is not usually painful, as the needles used are very fine; sometimes the needle is felt as it passes through the skin, but it is not the same as having an injection.
If you would like to book an appointment for acupuncture therapy for your pet, please call or email me (directly or via my website), or discuss this with your vet at Dragon Vets. I carry out the acupuncture treatments at the Dragon Vets clinic in Charlton Kings, Cheltenham, so you will have the convenience of bringing your pet to familiar surroundings. Payment will be required at the time of treatment - if your pet is insured, most policies cover acupuncture and I am happy to help you with the claim paperwork. Please see my website, or contact me directly for further information or to discuss your pet’s case. I look forward to hearing from you and hope that we can work together to enhance your pet’s health and wellbeing.
