Has anyone had any experience with acupuncture with a dog? Since June my dachshund Tess has been paralyzed in her back legs, and she has no bladder and bowel control. She has no deep pain sensation. She'd had problems once before and steroid treatments worked, but they were unsuccessful this time. When she first came home from the hospital it was a real effort to take care of her, but now we've learned a lot and she has a wheel chair and seems to again be a happy little dog. (In July her brother Dink also became paralyzed, but he has since started walking again, so we think it is a genetic thing). I've read a little about dogs who regained their ability to walk after having acupuncture treatments and have thought about trying it with Tess. It costs $88 for the first visit and then $45 to $50 a visit and the receptionist said typically visits are once a week. This vet has been doing acupuncture for more than 10 years. She is located about 75 miles from our house, so it won't be very convenient. DH has been doing physical therapy exercises with Tess every day. He thinks she has regained some strength and movement, but I'm not sure the movement is not involuntary. Usually he is the optimist, but he isn't keen on the acupuncture treatments.
