Many people will go to extreme lengths to keep their pets healthy.
Even going as far as to take their pet to get acupuncture!
Acupuncture in humans is still met with criticism, called just a placebo by many.
Believe it or not, there is such a thing as a Veterinary Acupuncturist. There's even an International Veterinary Acupuncture Society!
The funny thing about animals is they have no idea why they're being stuck with needles.
So that pretty much throws out the whole placebo effect argument.
There are some very commons pet ailments that acupuncture could really help with, such as:
- Feline asthma
- Skin problems (such as lick granuloma)
- Hip dysplasia
It's obviously not guaranteed to work but if other options don't seem to help, what's there to lose??
Would U take your pet to acupuncture??
