Acupuncture For Dogs & Cats
At Animals Docs we sometimes recommend acupuncture treatments to complement the conventional medicine provided by vets.
Acupuncture works two ways. When placing needles this blocks pain messages to the brain. From this the brain and central nervous system to produce endorphins that create direct relief and encourage the bodies natural defences and healing to take over.
