Things to know
Acupuncture is usually well tolerated by animals and you may even find your pet running towards the treatment room after a couple of treatments!
If your animal is food-driven and relaxes better with treats, feel free to bring your pet’s favourite treats to the treatment sessions
If your pet has a favourite blanket or bed to lie on and you think it may make your furry kid more comfortable during treatment, bring it along!
To achieve the best possible treatment results, we ask you to provide us with the medical history of your pet from your regular veterinarian 48 hours PRIOR to your appointment
If your animal is under current treatment with steroids, a slowed response to treatment with acupuncture is to be expected
Depending on the condition and its severity, some patients do not respond to treatment, this is usually evident after 4-6 treatments. In these cases we will discuss further treatment options
Please take your dog for a good walk prior to the treatment, if his/her condition allows this, as most dogs are more relaxed after exercise
After your pet’s acupuncture treatment avoid excessive exercise or stress for the rest of the day.
