Using Acupuncture to Help Pets with Pain
We've recently written about Reiki for dogs and hydrotherapy for dogs as excellent alternative treatment options for dog joint pain. Now comes a story about a New York veterinarian offering acupuncture for dogs. Michelle Bousquet said acupuncture helped relieve her own sciatic pain and now she's using it in her veterinarian practice to help animals with dog joint pain.
- Michelle Bousquet tells a story in the Press Republican of a customer who's dog couldn't jump in and out of the car.
- Because the dog is older the dog owner was very hesitant to administer pain medication because of fear it would damage the dog's liver.
- Chinese medicine sessions have markedly improved the dog's overall freedom.
Other Dog Owners Reflection this Story Upon Inquiring about Flexpet
There are so many owners who are extremely wary about giving prescribed pain medications because of liver damage and other unwanted side effects. What's more, surgical procedures can be extremely costly for owners, even with dog insurance that can often be confusing about certain insurance coverage and benefits. FlexPet with CM8 creates back the lost cartilage to be able to help increase overall dog joint mobility so dogs can run around, jump into and out of cars and get plenty of exercise. This process helps drastically reduce dog joint pain.

In a recent article, Acupuncturist Gordon Cohen shared his experience with pet acupuncture, detailing the success he had with several patients. He noted the results "remarkable" and explained the immediate results. "Upon my detaching the needles, the dog which has been lying partially on his side jumped to his feet and scampered about, rushing to the owner's toes excitedly. The dog needed no further encouragement and ran to the stairways after my astonished good friend who had reported that stair climbing had become difficult for the dog. Later, she reported that during their afternoon walk the dog has been able to lift his lowerleg."
Realizing it's still a relatively new program, Michelle Bousquet offers acupuncture for dogs from about $40 for sessions that last between 45 - 60 minutes.
But relieving pressure points through acupuncture for dogs is just one part of the equation. "Part of the reason why so many people see great results with FlexPet is because it's important to also build back the lost or broken cartilage between the joints," said Janice Grabowski of Evansville, Ind.
