Aquapuncture is the injection of Vitamin B12 into the acupuncture points. Extremely small needles are used and most animals experience no discomfort. The advantages are twofold: first, it is very quick and your pet does not have to sit for 15 or 20 minutes as required when we use traditional acupuncture needles. Secondly, research has shown that for most animals the stimulation of each point lasts longer than when we use traditional acupuncture.
The advantages of aquapuncture versus acupuncture vary with each animal. As with all treatment, Dr. Peggy evaluates each animal to determine the best course of treatment.
