Healing Pets Naturally

My sister-in-law, who works in a vet, came across a really skinny cat outside her clinic. She realized that this was the same cat she saw a few weeks before but it had lost a tremendous amount of weight and was rather timid and seemed distraught.

Being the kind soul she is, she brought Skinny back to my in-laws house and was determined to nurse him back to health. He would only eat when he was fed by hand and even then, ate so little and stood very still most of the time.

He's a real sweety and we got him to warm up to us but his appetite was so poor and his breathing so hard, it was more like panting.

My SIL was recommended to check out an acupuncturist for pets as there was no physical injury visible. Yes! pet acupuncturists exist!

For those not familiar with acupuncture, acupuncture uses very fine needles inserted through the skin at specific points on the body. These points are known as energy access points. Physiologically, there are more nerve endings at these points, and acupuncture stimulates these points to increase energy flow. This is particularly beneficial in relieving pain and helping bones, ligaments and joints return to normal function. It especially helps in chronic and complex health problems.

Acupuncture is successful in treating pain and assisting in rehabilitation of various physical problems in dogs, cats, horses, and many other animals. These conditions include: Musculoskeletal problems, Neurological problems, Pain management and rehabilitation, Reproductive issues, Eye problems, Urological conditions, Breathing and heart issues, Immunological and skin conditions, Psychological and behavioural problems.

A renowned pet acupuncture centre in Malaysia is Asia Paws. Dr Susanna's services do not come cheap but Skinny has been going for his weekly sessions and we see a visible increase in his appetite and energy level. His breathing has slightly improved as well.

Established in 2007 by Dr. Susanna Hofherr, Asia Paws makes use of the natural approach to complement and, if appropriate for a specific patient, even replace conventional veterinary treatment in Malaysia. Their approach addresses all issues of basic veterinary care such as information about lifestyle (for example vaccination and nutrition) to addressing recurrent or chronic ongoing health conditions.
