Acupuncture is used to achieve balance in the body by stimulating certain nerves using very small needles. As a very brief summary, acupuncture increases blood flow to promote local healing, inactivates certain painful nerve signals, and releases internal opioids in the brain to help relieve pain.

“My 10 year old cocker-spaniel injured himself in a fall two months ago. Tests showed that he also has chronic spinal stenosis. I was concerned about continual use of pain medication and was thrilled to learn that Chanticleer Veterinary Hospital now offers acupuncture! Davey received weekly treatments for one month and is now down to twice a month. He has healed from his injury and the twice a month treatments are doing their job. Although sore in some spots, he no longer needs pain medication. Dr. Dantzler has the magic touch! She even has a work-around for his sensitive paws! Thanks to the entire Chanticleer team for putting a spring back into his step!”  – Heidi, Soquel.
