|does anyone have any experience using acupuncture for dogs with arthritis and muscle degeneration?
coco has been having a really hard time getting around lately, so we tried deramaxx, but with his history of liver problems, we were told to stop the meds if he had any stomach issues, and.....long story short, no more deramaxx.
he gets a daily glucosamine/chronditin supplement and we are restarting his adequan injections so he's getting them twice a week for a month.
i've been doing research on acupuncture, and it seems like it might be a good option for coco, since his liver can't handle steriods or anti inflamitories. the studies that i found claimed a 40-60% success rate.
I would love to hear from any of you who have tried acupuncture for your dogs and if it was a positive or negative experience.
