Haha that lucky pony even got a treat afterwards! He's spoiled healthy LOL.

So after the needles are taken out & Henny takes a drink, does he sprout leaks?

This is so neat! Thanks for posting! I've always wondered what equine accupuncture was like. :)

Awwwww, he's a cutie, for sure! Glad to hear of acupuncture success stories, since I have been considering it myself. I'm sure he will continue to thrive!

Thanks, OHL. It really is something to be skeptical about. Both of my vets recommended it, and this is one of my vets in the picture doing it. It is really neat to see it done and the calming affects that are evident before the session is even half way done.

My dilemma is that my chiro does acupuncture, but stated I need an actual diagnosis...which I don't yet have, or may ever have. The two vets that I've heard of that does it...I am told are aweful and extremely expensive. I heard the horse was worse after the acupuncture than they were before. So, I'm scared to try it.

Is your chiro a vet? I'm not sure if it's only in Texas, but my vet said you have to be a licensed veterinarian to do acupuncture on horses. Maybe that's why you need a "diagnosis"?

Both my vets have worked with Henny beginning with his accident so they already know his complete background and situation. I have seen nothing but positive results from these two sessions. The doc who does the acupuncture is very sympathetic and will remove any needles that are bothering him too much no matter how much he needs them. The only thing is though is that he bled in a couple spots on his neck from the needles. I guess his muscles contracted too much. The vet said it was nothing to be concerned about, but that's the only "negative" thing that's come of this. It's $100 a session with my vet including the electric current and the acu-pen so not too bad.

ETA: I will add though that Henny is a "skin bleeder." He had to stay overnight after his gelding as he bled too much/too long so I don't know if bleeding from the needles is a common occurence.

I re-read her messege and it said that the 'acupuncturist' would need a diagnosis in order to know what they are adressing....so, she probably was not talking about herself. Maybe I will end up doing it eventually. Glad your guy is doing well.
