Here at Heritage Veterinary Hospital, we are proud to offer dry needling.
We are dedicated to helping your pet, combining the best that traditional Western medicine has to offer along with holistic medicine. When used together, we can decrease the amount of medication necessary to help your pet. We often see much better results when using the two together!
Dry needling involves inserting a solid filament needle into the skin and muscle at specific acupuncture points on a pet’s body. They are inserted into the myofascial trigger point, which consists of multiple contraction knots. These trigger points are what cause your pet pain. Inserting and leaving the needle in it for fifteen to thirty minutes destroys it, which helps to relieve your pet’s muscle pain.
Don’t hesitate to call or text us at (817) 358-0404 if you have any questions about dry needling or to learn if it can help alleviate your pet’s pain.
