Acupuncture can benefit horses in a variety of ways.  Typical reasons for an acupuncture treatment are lameness, back pain, cushing’s disease (PPID), allergic asthma (IAD & RAO), anhydrosis, and more! Dogs and cats also benefit from Chinese acupuncture treatments.  Common reasons for pursuing acupuncture include arthritis, inter-vertebral disc disease (paresis/paralysis), cushing’s, diabetes, kidney failure, incontinence, infertility, seizures, neoplasia (cancer), autoimmune diseases, and other chronic issues.

Horses and small animals typically need atleast 3 treatments 1-2 weeks apart.  For acute (new) issues further treatment may not be necessary, for chronic issues treatments may continue but at more extended intervals (monthly/every few months/twice a year).  Chinese acupuncture works well by itself, but may be enhanced with Chinese herbs.  Dr. Selders is able to prescribe the Chinese herbs that will fit with your animal’s condition.
