Practice acupuncture long enough and one of your patients is bound to mention some issues their pet is having. They might ask for some herbal advice, or see if you'd be up for treating their furry friend.

Perhaps you've tried your hand at treating your own critters. Found that your cat is more frisky after acupuncture or that the dog's hips aren't such a bother after a few needles.

In this episode we talk with a veterinary acupuncturist about the legal considerations,  training programs  and safety considerations for working with animals.

Listen in and explore the world of animal acupuncture.
