Acupuncture and herbal medicine has been used in animals for over 4000 years. It can be used as a stand alone treatment or alongside western medicine.

It is often well tolerated by animals and can give excellent and dramatic effects.

Small tack type needles are a great way to introduce needles to horses.

Chinese herbal medicine provides similar care to acupuncture but is ongoing. Most herbs are well tolerated by horses and dogs, but cats can be a little harder to convince.
