Benefits of Acupuncture

When a pet owner takes the trouble to write us a thank you letter, it means so much to us. Recently we received this lovely letter:

“I would just like to thank you for introducing me to Angie and her laser acupuncture treatment.

My dog, JJ, who is 16 and a half years old, suffers from debilitating muscle wastage and arthritis in his hind legs.

I have been attending Angie’s laser acupuncture sessions with JJ for about 6 months.  The difference to his ability to get around following the treatments is amazing – he becomes almost puppy-like once again.

Although this does not last for long (about a day or so) his overall ability to move around has much improved over the months to the point that last week he joined in the garden, when we were out there working, quite voluntarily and enjoyed time running around and reacquainting himself with all the sniffs.

Angie is very patient with JJ – who likes to make sure people know he is around – and her treatments have improved his quality of life considerably.

I would urge anyone who has a dog (or any other animal) suffering from arthritis or other mobility problems to think strongly about trying Angie’s acupuncture treatment for their pet.

Thank you once again and most of all – thank you Angie.”

Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese healing therapy, involving placing needles in  specific locations on the body to treat health problems. It has since evolved into a more scientific Western approach, which is the form of acupuncture treatment you will find at The Mewes Vets. Your pet can also benefit from our laser acupuncture service, which helps in the same way, but simply avoids the use of needles.

Learning acupuncture takes a great deal of extra study over and above that to become a vet. We are so fortunate to have Mrs Angie Gill, who is one of very few vets in the UK certified with The International Veterinary Acupuncture Society. She has also completed training in Laser Acupuncture and Low Level Laser Treatment, including Pulse Controlled Laser Acupuncture.
