Many pet owners have never tried acupuncture themselves and worry if it’s safe, painful, or effective for their cat or dog. According to the Chi Institute, acupuncture has a myriad of benefits for your pet, some of which include pain relief, the promotion of tissue healing, regulation of gastrointestinal motility, immunoregulation, antifebrile effects, and reproductive and hormone regulation. Call Animal Hospital of Linden to learn more about our acupuncture services from Dr. Wendy Sweeney, certified veterinary acupuncturist from the Chi Institute.
