Acupuncture

Your pet can’t tell you when they’re in pain; don’t let them suffer in silence

dog-832848_1920Animals are incredibly good at tolerating pain and can often suffer in silence; if only they could tell us when they’re feeling under the weather.

Managing your pet’s pain is one of our highest priorities at Stanhope Park Veterinary Hospital. We believe the idea that pets don’t feel pain is outdated and incorrect. It is obvious that pain can impair healing and, more importantly is inhumane.

There is a huge demand for acupuncture as it is a cost-effective and beneficial form of pain management.

Acupuncture is a complementary medicine in which fine needles are inserted in the skin at specific points, which can alleviate pain and suffering in your animals.

Some animals are allergic to painkillers and acupuncture can offer them an effective alternative. It can also decrease muscle spasms and improve the mobility in arthritic pets.

Principle of Stanhope Park Veterinary Hospital, Micaela Wright is an experienced acupuncturist and can be found on the register of acupuncturists. Micaela is also happy to take on referrals from other veterinary centres.
