Pet Acupuncture Services

Acupuncture is used to stimulate the bodies nervous system, endocrine system, and immune system. This stimulation can induce responses such as inflammation reduction, pain relief, decreased allergy response, gastrointestinal regulation, and much more.

In fact, at Urban Pet Hospital, we provide acupuncture as a combination or standalone treatment for pets.

Please consult with our experienced veterinarians in Urbandale for an acupuncture session the next time you bring in your furry friend.

Is Acupuncture Safe for My Pet?

  • SAFE TREATMENT : Acupuncture has always been a safe, alternative treatment for humans for various issues. Likewise, pets can benefit from it too.
  • NO SIDEFFECTS : There are little to no side effects, and the needling procedure is often relaxing for pets as they may find the experience soothing.
  • However, the number of acupuncture sessions your pet requires is better addressed by our experts.
  • You can rely on our experienced practitioners for safe acupuncture procedures for your dog or cat.
