Many new clients are concerned about the experience their dog with have. Will it hurt? Is it scary and terrible?
It turns out that most dogs love acupuncture! It can take a treatment or two for them to understand the process but after that they often plop down, ready to get started.
Signs that the treatment is working include a change in breathing, yawning, panting, licking, and generally resting. When done they tend to "wake up" and show an interest in their surroundings again. Sometimes they shake as if removing water from their coats.
Sometimes dogs who are normally shy will walk right up to the acupuncturist as if they know they are going to get the help they need. Clients have reported their dogs "knowing" when it was time for acupuncture and be waiting for their owners at the front door!
