Acupuncture is a centuries-old process of inserting small, sterile needles under the skin of the pet into blood vessels and nerve bundles. These tiny needles stimulate these nerves and cause a chemical release in the muscle, brain, and spinal cord which can lead to a healing response. The practice of acupuncture uses the body's chemicals and healing powers for a variety of conditions listed below. The compassionate veterinarians at Airport Animal Clinic completed extensive training in veterinary acupuncture and often recommend the practice in conjunction with western methods of medicine. Airport Animal Clinic serves the veterinary acupuncture needs of pets in the Monroeville, Peterman, Frisco City, Excel, Megargel, and Repton areas of Alabama.
