This quick video just confirms what I’ve known all along: complementary therapies like veterinary acupuncture are quickly becoming a trend in senior dog treatments. In the recently concluded Western Veterinary Conference, several veterinarians expressed interest in learning this form of therapy.
In veterinary medicine, it has gone past being a mere pain relieving technique to a proven way of treating seizures, liver and kidney disease, and allergies. Its effectiveness and success, of course, largely depend on the skill of the veterinarian practitioner. When bringing your pet dog to the vet, look for a certification that he has finished a course on acupuncture. You can also ask your friends for referrals on who can perform acupuncture on your fur baby.
