flying needles

Oreo has been suffering with allergies this Fall, and I've been bringing him to his acupuncturist for some relief.

She's moved from a very busy vet office to a private office in a house, which is much better for Oreo,

Oreo has made himself at home!  Jumping on the furniture to look out the window.

He used to be very timid at his appointments,and would hide behind me on a leather bench.

Not here.

After the doctor put all his needles in, he decided to stroll around the room and give himself a good shake.   This caused half his needles to fly around the room.  Luckily, none of us got one stuck in our eye.

The doctor had to put in new needles.

After round 2, Oreo walked right up to the doctor, and showed her how he can take the needles out with his teeth.

Mr. Smarty Pants.

I told oreo he better behave, because the vet was typing up all this in his file, and it was going on his permanent record.

Then, Oreo pranced away, finally laid down, got in the acupuncture zone, looking all dreamy eyed, and nodded off for the next twenty minutes. He must've remembered....oh yea, this stuff makes me feel good.

He's such a goof.

I wish we had something like that around here - Reilly gets needles for his allergies but they are just depo shots - he is very good about having them and I give them to at home. Is the acupuncture helping Oreo with his allergies?

He is scratching less now, but he's not 100%yet. Hopefully this last treatment gives him even more relief.

Benji is itching too. Our vet never even mentioned this treatment. We can just imagine the flying needles. Guess thats oreos version if throwing darts at a bullseye.

Oh yikes! Flying needles? That sounds a little scary.

I'm glad it helps him. Harlow has allergies to the grass out here. If it gets worse I will need to try it.

Oh boy, don't get me started on skin problems. I feel like Mickey is never going to get better.

I can just imagine him zoning out - it's wonderful you have a vet able to do acupuncture.
