|JakodaCD OA||yes with one of mine that had OCD (knee issues), worked really well, I did it in conjunction with Chinese Meds, if you can find someone who does it ALL, acupuncture, CM, plus PT, laser, they should be able to evaluate what will help the best, a combo, one or other etc..|

|More Ball! says Jake||
I highly recommend it. When our Sheba started slowing down and was obviously suffering from arthritis we decided to try acupuncture. The vet we used didn't use needles, he used what I can only describe as a type of light pen. You could definitely tell the difference in her mobility after a session. We feel it also helped slow the progression of her DM. I honestly think if we hadn't been taking her for acupuncture sessions her DM would have progressed much more quickly and we would have had to assist her to the Bridge far sooner than we did. Good luck - I hope it helps!

|Harry and Lola||
This is interesting, I have recently discovered a local vet experienced in acupuncture and was wondering about using it for Harry and Lola.
Harry - for aggression/reactiveness towards other dogs
Lola - HD

|Cassidy's Mom||We used it with Cassidy, and I do think it helped. I didn't go into it with any expectations, I didn't have strong feelings about acupuncture but figured it would either help or it wouldn't, so there was no harm in trying. My husband was more skeptical, but one time, I think it was either later that evening or the next day after a treatment, he asked me how much it cost. I told him, and he said "it was worth it".|

I hope it's not. Sometimes spinal things can make your hind end weak - maybe it's that.
You might want to give Dr. Browne at Thera-vet a try. She is a vet PT and can do chiro - I told her she could feel Bella but no adjustments unless she asked for each one, and she was good with that. But I wanted her to use that weird chiro sense of where things were. TheraVet - Rochester Rehab, Equine and Canine Health Care They sometimes get a little nutty with their modality recommendations - like "do everything" but you can scale it back. Interesting: Conditions Treated - Conditioning, Pain Management, Injury Diagnostics, Physical Rehabilitation. not sure if those lists are exhaustive or what.
Whatever you do I hope it goes well and shows success.

|Nigel||Ranger is recovering from a TPLO surgery and sees a physical therapist. Last week we thought he may have injured "the leg", he definitely changed his gate. We took him to PT and they did acupuncture instead of the water treadmill and massage and it worked well. He had tensed up in that leg and the acupuncture loosened him up. He walked as good as he was able to earlier in the week. I'm a believer.|
