Alternative Medicine

Interested in a more holistic approach to caring for your animal friend?

For thousands of years, cultures from around the world have been using natural methods to manage the health of both people and animals. Many of these therapies are still practiced today with proven results. As part of our commitment to offering the most comprehensive care available, Bell Animal and Bird Hospital is pleased to include alternative medicine options.

Veterinary Acupuncture

Acupuncture involves the gentle insertion of tiny needles into various points along the body known as acupoints. Each of these spots is believed to be connected to certain internal areas of the body, such as joints, muscle groups and the nervous system. When the acupuncture needles are inserted, the body responds by triggering a cellular response in the targeted area. The result can be a marked decrease in pain, improved mobility and more balanced overall health.

Acupuncture can be used to treat any of the following ailments in companion animals:

  • Arthritis
  • Intervertebral Disc Disease
  • Hip Dysplasia
  • Asthma
  • Allergies
  • Digestive Problems
  • Respiratory Issues
  • Kidney Disease
  • Reproductive Problems
  • Urinary Tract Disorders
  • More…
