Acupuncture Update

            Is it time for food yet?

Tanaka has been eating better ever since he went to acupuncture. He behaves very well there ever since we have him in his blue inflatable collar and would relax more. Sometimes he even naps. 

Since he is the latest one at the acupuncturist, I decided that he should go weekly still. I am thinking of having Akira go twice a month now as she has improved tremendously in terms of being more relaxed and calm. She has not bitten through her skin for many weeks already and so her skin is cleaner and less stressed.
She is still quite bald but as long as she does not break through her skin it is a tremendous improvement and she takes no steroids as well! 
Bujang's backache has not improved though but possibly this is so because he gets so angry at the needle doc and all that testosterone will affect his back as well. He has been much calmer at home though and I hope the kidney medicine is helping him. 

Both the boys and Popps will go for their half-yearly checkup for blood work as all have kidney issues that needs monitoring.

The acupuncture treatments are really working! So happy to hear that Akira and Tanaka are doing so well. I wonder if this would help me. I have been at the vet a lot lately. Meow from Jessica

We have never tried acupuncture, but #1 is a great believer in its healing powers. She will soon be travelling to Japan and has already booked an appointment with her long-time acupuncturist there!
