Feline-Specific Acupuncture for Arthritis Management and Pain Relief

At Cat Hospital of Metairie, we specialize in feline-specific acupuncture, lovingly called “catupuncture”. This treatment is a key part of our comprehensive approach to managing arthritis and providing pain relief for your beloved cat. By carefully placing very small needles at specific points on your cat’s body, we stimulate the nervous system and reduce inflammation, promoting comfort and improved mobility.

How Can Acupuncture Benefit Your Pet?

  • Pain Management: Acupuncture is particularly beneficial for managing pain in cats. Whether your cat is dealing with arthritis, joint pain, or other chronic conditions, acupuncture can provide significant relief. The stimulation of acupuncture points triggers the release of endorphins, which are the body’s natural painkillers. This natural approach to pain management can improve your cat’s quality of life and comfort.
  • Stress Reduction: Cats can experience stress and anxiety, especially in unfamiliar environments or during times of change. Acupuncture offers a calming effect on the nervous system, promoting relaxation and reducing stress levels in your feline companion. This can lead to a happier and more contented cat, improving their overall well-being.
  • Enhanced Healing: If your cat has recently undergone surgery or is recovering from an injury, acupuncture can play a vital role in the healing process. By increasing blood flow to the affected areas and promoting tissue repair, acupuncture can accelerate the healing process. This means less downtime for your pet and a quicker return to their normal activities.

What to Expect During a Session

During an acupuncture session at Cat Hospital of Metairie, your cat will be comfortably positioned, and very fine needles will be inserted at specific points on their body. Most cats tolerate the treatment well and even find it relaxing. Sessions typically last around 20 to 30 minutes, and the number of sessions needed will depend on your cat’s condition and response to treatment.
