Queen Natasha visited a new doctor’s office yesterday. We will be exploring acupuncture for pain management, but yesterday was about exploring the office.
In her last physical examination with our vet, we discussed Natasha’s pain management for her arthritis. Laser treatments and pharmaceuticals have produced great results so far. But, we discussed other possibilities to see what we should consider. Yesterday, we visited a specialist in pain management for animals.
The exam room was quite large and comfortable. But Natasha’s favorite feature may have been the glass door. She enjoyed seeing, if not meeting, other patients.
We discussed several alternatives and Hu-Dad learned a couple of massage techniques to do at home. Natasha will enjoy demanding massages under the pretense of medical need.
We also decided to start with acupuncture. We started with a small initial treatment and will visit next week for another round. Natasha did great with the treatment, though her favorite part was receiving a treat with each needle. Considering that the appointment made us late for dinner, the treats were welcomed.
We will update in a later post about the effectiveness of acupuncture.
