Acupuncture is the insertion of very fine needles into specific points on the body to achieve therapy and balance. It works through stimulating a highly complex network of pathways called meridians. These meridians connect with internal organs and points along these meridians are used to stimulate energies (Qi) and fluids of the body.

The use of acupuncture has become an established profession in Australia, so why not for your pet? In fact the first ever veterinary text book, Bole’sCanon of Veterinary Acupuncture and Moxibustion by Bole Zhenjing, published in China between 659 B.C. to 621 B.C. was based on acupuncture use in horses. Acupuncture in animals soon expanded and incorporated cattle, camels, pigs, chickens, dogs, cats and just about any feathered, furred or scaly friend.
