Providing High Quality Veterinary Care
Terry Animal Hospital is one of the few animal hospitals in Chicago’s North Shore to offer acupuncture as a treatment method in conjunction to traditional veterinary medicine. For more than 3,000 years acupuncture has been used as a means of stimulating specific points on the body to release neurotransmitters such as beta-endorphins and serotonin. Acupuncture has been found to reduce pain associated with hip dysplasia, ligament injuries and arthritic conditions. Can also reduce seizure duration and frequency and lessen effects of allergies.

Most of the time the acupuncture needles are left in place for a matter of seconds upwards of 30 minutes depending on the treatment goals.
Side effects are not common, and are generally mild but can include:
- Possible bruising or bleeding at the site of the treatment points
