Here’s a video (link below) of a cat receiving an acupuncture treatment. He is not in any way restrained, although his harness and lead, on which he walked in, can be seen still attached.
While he’s no vet lover, he accepts his acupuncture very well, as do most cats. He hates the camera, though!
If a cat objects to needle acupuncture, we have to assume we are either doing it incorrectly or that needles don’t suit. In such rare cases, we would use acupuncture-by-LASER, which is painless and soothing. We DO NOT SEDATE animals for acupuncture.
Every patient is given a chiropractic check and offered correction by manipulation of any problem found.
