Most people will have heard of acupuncture, but have you ever considered it for your pets? At Bury St Edmunds Veterinary Centre we are lucky that we Sophie Ward MRCVS a qualified veterinary acupuncturist.
What is veterinary acupuncture?
Only qualified vets are legally allowed to carry acupuncture on animals, and Sophie has undertaken a vast amount of additional training to be able to offer this additional therapy to her patients.
Acupuncture involves the placement of needles into specific locations on the body. It is not a painful procedure, and some pets will even have a snooze while it is being carried out.
Sophie most commonly uses acupuncture to treat musculoskeletal conditions such as osteoarthritis, chronic pain and spinal problems. She also uses it to help pets recover from orthopedic or spinal injuries.
More information can be found here.
If you think acupuncture could benefit your pet or would like to find out more then please do get in touch with us. Sophie is more than happy to advise if she thinks your pet’s condition could benefit from acupuncture.
