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.
