"Many pets benefit greatly from acupuncture," said Dr. Haase. "Not only do these treatments safely manage pain associated with conditions like arthritis, but they also allow pets to enjoy enhanced well being. The older animals are often able to be comfortably active, as when they were younger. The treatments are a good alternative to painkillers and anti-inflammatory drugs." We know pets are an important part of the family," said Dr. Haase. "That's why we don't just treat them like animals and acupuncture is a critical veterinary care advancement for your pets that will ease pain and help treat many common health concerns, without the need for invasive surgery or medication."
