Acupuncture, a Holistic Treatment for Pets

Practiced for thousands of years, this traditional Chinese medicine technique uses needles to either release energy or encourage its flow at specific locations throughout the body, known as pressure points. Based on the principle theory that every living being has energy (qi) which flows through the body, acupuncture helps regulate this flow of energy to support good physical and mental health. In addition, acupuncture has been shown to benefit our pets in many of the same ways that it benefits us, humans.

Common Pet Conditions Successfully Improved with Acupuncture

Acupuncture has been shown to improve general wellness and reduce anxiety overall, but its anti-inflammatory effects can be applied to improve and/or relieve your pets from several particular conditions, including:

  • Conditions Related to the Musculoskeletal System – Issues such hip dysplasia, arthritis, nerve problems, or injuries can be relieved and improved with acupuncture. Acupuncture promotes circulation to the problem areas, easing pain and accelerating recovery by delivering the oxygen and nutrients which are vital to the healing process.
  • Skin Conditions – Acupuncture not only helps heal skin conditions such as hot spots, granulomas, and allergic dermatitis but also provides your pet relief from the painful and itchy symptoms associated with these issues.
  • Gastrointestinal Problems – Acupuncture increases circulation and stimulates nerves in the abdomen. This has been shown to relieve both nausea and diarrhea. Acupuncture can also stimulate the secretion of digestive enzymes, helping to regulate normal bowel activity in your pet.
  • Difficulties with the Respiratory System – Respiratory issues such as asthma and allergies are caused by increased inflammation due to an overly active immune response. The anti-inflammatory action of acupuncture can help control your pet’s symptoms, allowing him or her to breathe more comfortably.
  • Pain Management – Acupuncture works similarly to anti-inflammatory medications to prevent, reduce, and manage pain in pets who might have pain due to a chronic condition, illness, or injury. Acupuncture can be used on an ongoing basis to manage pain in your pets during treatments or while he or she heals. Acupuncture is a safe and healthy long-term pain management solution for pets, as it is free from the harmful side effects of certain pain medications.

Pet Health Hospital is a life saver. My poor cat was attacked by another cat and developed a terrible abscess on her little head. Dr. Pizzillo was the attending veterinarian who treated my BabyGir!!. She was able to get the situation under control before it became more serious. Dr. Pizzillo is compassionate and caring. She has a very calming way about her and put my worries at ease. The entire staff is very professional and welcoming. I am going to recommend Pet Health Hospital to anyone needing an excellent veterinarian. Thank you to all of you!!!!

Pet Health has been a wonderful health care service for our baby – Gracie.  She has a very serious health issue arise – and Dr. Lewis texted on a regular basis to check on her, to see how things were progressing and to see if we needed any help.   I am very grateful for their genuine love and concern for our dog.  thank you!

Love this vet! Clean and high tech! The entire staff was friendly and so loving to my dog! First time here and I have already recommended this place to all my friends! The vet even followed up with us as she said she would on the urine test.

Great place. We’ve been to many vets throughout our dogs 7 years life span. This is the best place we’ve been to so far. Dr. Renee Lewis has a great presence and our dog was surprisingly extremely calm around her (he like every other dog, don’t like vets..).

This clinic is not very pushy wanting to do ‘extra’ work to create a larger bill. 

Dr. Lewis also showed that she really cared and took her time to get to know our dog, and explaining everything after the surgery. 

I’m done with Veterinaries that only cares about profit and rush through the consultation because they’re overbooked!

The staff here are also very friendly and helpful. They made us feel welcome!

I highly recommend this place!

Pet Health Animal Hospital is simply amazing. We found Dr. B and his team shortly after adopting our first dog. Being new to the area, we were concerned with finding the right vet that cared about our dog as much as we did. Lucky enough, we walked right into the perfect vet. From overnight stays to surgeries, Dr B and his team make us feel so comfortable, put any concern at ease, and are masters of communication. There is never a question left unanswered, or an update left undelivered. The whole team knows our dogs when we walk in, and our dogs are always excited and sprinting to get into the vet to see them. I tell people all the time that my favorite part of living in Las Vegas is Pet Health Animal Hospital!

The doctors and assistants do an amazing job here. I wasn’t sure what to do with my Sasha so I brought her in fearing the worst. Dr. Jessica Pizzillo was simply the best. She was able to remove the growth the same day and at a fraction of the cost of other estimates I had received, all while putting my Sasha through the least amount of trauma possible.

The front desk staff was also very kind and understanding when it comes to stressful situations like this. Stephanie and the rest of the staff made me feel comfortable and were very professional.

– Scott H.

Absolutely incredible vet! The level of service and attention is the best I’ve ever experienced anywhere.
