In addition to traditional medicine at Brookside Veterinary Hospital, we also offer acupuncture and Chinese herbal remedies.

The International Veterinary Acupuncture Society explains the historical use of acupuncture and relevant applications today. There is evidence to suggest that acupuncture can be used to treat a variety of medical problems, including muscle, bone and joint pain such as arthritis; neurological disorders;, skin problems; immune disorders including allergies; emotional disorders; respiratory problems; gastrointestinal problems; and even some reproductive problems. Acupuncture works by stimulating nerves, increasing blood flow to the affected area, and possibly even inducing the release of hormones. Veterinary acupuncture is safe and virtually painless.
