Different results are seen with each patient. Generally a minimum of three treatments is recommended to see if it helps. If a response is seen, a course of treatment is recommended, depending on the condition. Many patients that have had successful treatment of their condition get treatments every four to six weeks to keep their bodies in balance. I have had many success stories with acupuncture. The main goal is to improve the quality of the patient’s life. My latest success story involves an 11-year-old West Highland Terrier. The owner thought her only alternative was to put him to sleep because he could not walk. After a physical exam, I told the owner I thought I could help him walk again. The owner let me take him to the clinic for a week so I could perform acupuncture therapy daily. He had a great response and after three months is walking and functioning like a normal dog. I am happy, the dog is happy and the owner is so thankful he is walking. Acupuncture is a wonderful addition to the veterinary toolbox that allows me to provide great care to my patients. A full physical exam and proper diagnostics are essential for me to make a proper medical diagnosis. This allows me to make the proper choice for acupuncture point selection and course of treatment. Acupuncture and Chinese medicine have made me a better doctor and more attuned to my patients' needs. I am amazed with each patient I see what type of results are attainable.
