Animal Acupuncture

Veterinary acupuncture is used to help relieve pain and improve function in various locations. Acupuncture is a form of therapy in which fine needles are inserted into specific points on the body, most commonly, in the superficial skin and muscles. Based on Western Based Acupuncture, points are chosen based on exam findings and observation of the animal. These needles stimulate the local tissues and nerves to reorganize, causing increased blood flow to the area and endogenous endorphin release, working in conjunction with the body’s natural healing process.

Animals tolerate acupuncture very well, relaxing and laying quietly during the treatment with very minimal restraint needed (if any at all). The sessions can last anywhere from 10 to 30 minutes. Often times, 4-6 sessions will be needed  before a positive response is noticed.


Falls Road Veterinary Hospital offers many different vaccinations for your pet. Required dog vaccinations include Rabies, Distemper, Bordetella, and Canine Influenza Virus.  We offer other vaccines for dogs as well.
