Pet acupuncture growing in popularity

More and more pet owners are finding that acupuncture can help their beloved pets. I was delighted to see this article in the Washington Post this week which highlighted my old acupuncturist,  Greta McVeigh. Greta treated me during my student years when I was training to be an acupuncturist and I learnt a lot from her. She is a wonderful practitioner for people and I have no doubt that animals will also benefit tremendously.

Pet acupuncture does not involve any placebo effects, so any response is a true effect of the needles. My mother had  a dog who suffered severe arthritis from Lyme disease even after she was treated by conventional veterinarian medicine with antibiotics and pain medication. She was a big dog who became aggressive and even dangerous as a result of chronic pain. After a course of acupuncture therapy she was back to her old happy self.
