Dogs, cats, birds and even elephants are getting acupuncture to help treat their arthritis and spinal injuries

ABVA education director Dietrich Graf Von Schweinitz – who recently treated his first alpaca – said: “Acupuncture is not limited by what kind of animal it is. Every animal has a nervous system and reflexes to stimulation. It’s how, where and when one creates a certain stimulus as to what effect it has.”
