Equine Acupuncture for Happy Horses!

Experience the extraordinary benefits of Equine Acupuncture, a transformative service now available at Countryside. Designed to optimize your horse's health and vitality, our new offering combines the ancient wisdom of acupuncture with the veterinarian expertise of Dr. Zoe Latimer.

What is Equine Acupuncture?

Equine Acupuncture is a holistic healing technique that stimulates your horse's natural healing abilities. By gently inserting fine needles into specific points on their body, we can restore balance, alleviate discomfort, and promote overall well-being.

Acupuncture: How it works

Thin acupuncture needles are inserted at strategic acupressure points that lie along the horse's meredians.

Acupuncture points icon

The  selected points correspond to different organs, systems, and musculoskeletal structures in your horse's body.

Now placed, the needles stimulate the release of pain-killing and anti-inflammatory substances from the brain.

Equine Acupuncture's Positive Impact

Timely Results Await!

While each horse's response to treatment is unique, many owners have reported noticeable improvements after just a few acupuncture sessions. The timeframe for results varies depending on factors such as the specific condition and the horse's overall health. Some horses may experience immediate changes, while others may require multiple sessions for significant progress. Dr. Lattimer closely monitors your horse's progress and provides guidance on expected timelines. Rest assured, we are dedicated to delivering comprehensive care and helping your horse achieve optimal well-being through the transformative practice of equine acupuncture.
