Super Secret Benefits of Dog Acupuncture

Acupuncture for dogs is becoming increasingly popular each and every day and its also very fascinating. Chinese wisdom from thousands of years ago proclaims every thing alive contains a “bioenergy” called “QI”. The Chinese word “QI” sounds a bit like “chee”. The Chinese have been using acupuncture for over 3000 years. Acupuncture for dogs unblocks their QI energy which allows the canine’s body to self heal. When you use acupuncture for dogs together with healthy dog food, you give your canine’s body the best chance at healing itself.

Dr. Barbara Royal, a Veterinarian and practicing dog acupuncturist, says that dog acupuncture decreases pain, decreases inflammation, increases circulation and stimulates or relaxes brain and nerve function.

Acupuncture for dogs makes possible what medicines and drugs sometimes can’t. Dog acupuncture makes your canine’s overall health better, relaxes the muscles, improves circulation, improves immune function and improves digestion which all contribute to making it possible for your dog’s body to heal itself from injury, surgery or chronic pain.

Common problems that have been proven to respond well to dog acupuncture are digestive disorders, arthritis, immune system disorders, skin conditions, urological diseases, liver or kidney disease and neurological problems.

The needles used in acupuncture for dogs are very small compared to other needles and your dog will feel no pain as long as its performed by a qualified dog acupuncturist. Dr. Royal says “I have found that dog acupuncture is often an effective alternative for many conditions….This is particularly true for animals who are older, have multiple health problems and maybe can’t tolerate medications or surgery”.

If you combine acupuncture for dogs while feeding your canine a healthy dog food then you have a pretty good combination for a naturally healthy dog. Giving your canine a totally healthy dog food is complicated today because there is tons of false advertising and marketing being used on us by the huge commercial dog food makers. Therefore, its entirely up to you to do a little bit of research to find out if the dog food you are feeding your canine is really healthy or just fast food disguised as healthy dog food.
