|Buster getting Acupuncture for allergies|
As many of you have read, we are big fans of Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture. Buster got acupuncture once a week, Max gets it every other week now, but for a time got it every week as well. I even got it when I saw that Buster lost 10 lbs with it, AND I didn't change his diet or his exercise routine... and yes! I lost 10 lbs too! No more ...though! (There must be a 10lb limit!) I figured if Buster lost 10 lbs it wasn't psychosomatic so why not give it a try.
Many western / conventional vets, oncologists, surgeons, poo poo the idea of Chinese Medicine, herbs and acupuncture, but in all honestly, what do you have to lose by trying acupuncture? If you don't believe, it's not going to make anything worse! You're just sticking needles in the skin (and it doesn't hurt for those who are worried about this They are very thin and I've had dogs and cats who have been very skittish around vets, and they all were great with acupuncture and even LOVED it! Max actually used to ask our vet for needles when he'd go with Buster years ago, and when Buster wasn't feeling good he'd go sit by the car and want me to take him to the vet.
