Designated nap time at the vet is no problem for these pets when they get acupuncture.

Acupuncture is on the rise for both humans and animals. It’s not just dogs and cats receiving the alternative needling treatment either. Farm animals, rodents, bunnies, birds, and even reptiles can all benefit from this holistic therapy.

After the endorphins kick in, pets tend to get really sleepy. And really comfortable. Sometimes a little too comfortable.

Check out these acupuncture pets who are making themselves right at home at the vet.

The cat who was in so deep he couldn’t hear the human asking if he was ready for his close up.

Acupuncture affects most pets similarly. Relief can be immediate or take a few sessions to show up, but these pets all agree–it works!

From arthritis to kidney disease, pet acupuncture is quickly becoming a hot commodity.
