How long do acupuncture treatments in pets last?
Acupuncture treatment time depends on the condition or conditions being treated, as well as, the age of the pet. Generally speaking, however, dry needles are kept in place between 5 and 20 minutes in my office. Most of the animals get very relaxed, yawn, and often fall asleep. Acupuncture, by nature, releases some of the body’s natural endorphins causing them to relax and enjoy their treatment.
