    Default Has anyone had acupuncture done to their cat?

    My cat has arthritis that is starting to not respond to the treatments he's been getting, so now I'm considering acupuncture. Has anyone had this done to their cat? Did it help?

    Aw...

    Well i haven't and i would imagine you'd have a hard time finding a place that does that sort of thing, but there's no harm in trying. Just today a friend and i took our dog to the vet and the lady told us our dog's itching may be more psycological than physical in nature... I'm passing that along just to illustrate that the way people view pets and petcare has changed drastically, so, you may be in luck...

    I just wonder if that form of ac. punct. would vary or just be out-and-out different altogether...? Anyhow, just talk to your vet and goodluck.

    Well fuck me sideways with a rusty shovel, this is the funniest thread title I have read on TypoC.

    Although I was kind of surprised to find out it was a serious question. But then I saw "INFJ" and wasn't so surprised anymore.

    Best wishes to your cat, OP.

    @EntangledLight, the vet I take my cats to has an acupuncturist that comes in once a week. I'm going to talk with him and find out more, but was interested in other people's experiences with it. I did a quick search online and read a couple of blogs by people who have had a good experience. IF I decide to do it, I want to make sure it's worth the expense.

    @Edgar, thanks, and glad I could provide a bit of humor.

    ey, I'd probably try anything to ease a kitty's pain... good luck @Eilonwy- let me know how it works out, if you try it. My jack's 8, now.. I'm hoping he doesn't develop any chronic pain issues.


    -sidenote ..whenever I think of acupuncture, this terrible scene from The Nutty Professor comes to mind.

    *nod*


    ..actually, the way things seem to be going, Jack may need acupuncture for that, someday.

    I was so stoned last night, reading this was making me hysterical with laughter.

    I'm glad @Eilonwy was a good sport about it =P

    Wouldn't the pressure points be completely different on a cat? It's not like you can ask a cat if something felt particularly sore. The position of these points are very precise; we're talking about a difference of milometers and they already differ from person to person. How is this gonna work out with a cat?
