Over the last 30-40 years vets in the Western world have been using acupuncture to treat many different species of animal with considerable success. It alleviates pain, and stimulates the animal's own resistance to disease.
It is especially useful for treating chronic diseases such as arthritis, but it can be used for other inflammatory conditions such as skin disease, and has even been used successfully for incontinence and fits. It can help any chronic pain that is not being controlled by more conventional treatment, or where side-effects from the conventional treatment are a concern.
We generally now use laser acupuncture, where a beam of laser light is used to stimulate the acupuncture points. We also sometimes use fine needles which are inserted into the acupuncture points and left in place for about 10 minutes. Most animals accept this treatment surprisingly well, and some relax so much they almost fall asleep during the treatment.
The number of treatments and the interval between treatments varies depending on the duration and severity of the condition. We usually start with three or four treatments at weekly intervals, and then possibly fortnightly or monthly. If there is no improvement after the first three treatments, it is unlikely that acupuncture will be beneficial.
The cost is £44.40 per session
