August 26th is International Dog Day!
All my patients are human….but did you know that dogs (cats and horses too) can get acupuncture? Here in Kentucky, like many states, it must be provided by a veterinarian.
You can do some acupressure massage on your fur baby using the same points as for humans. I did some acupressure on my friend’s 8-year old German Short-hair Pointer along his back once and from then on every time I came to visit, regardless of how long it had been, he would walk up to me, sit down with his back to me, and look over his shoulder as if to say, “I’m ready for my massage.”
