Does acupuncture help pets?

Like any other type of medical therapy, acupuncture is not magic: It is a mode of therapy that has both applications and limitations. I don’t like to say that acupuncture treats disease, because so many people associate the word “treat” with the complete resolution of a problem. Instead, I like to say that we “address” disease with acupuncture, because this therapy can be used to relieve symptoms, to minimize side effects of drugs and to allow patients to decrease or even cease the use of certain medications.
