Today I went for my second treatment of acupuncture as part of my treatment for arthritis and hip dysplasia. This time I was prepared and took my West Paw Eco Nap Bed. It rolls up just like a yoga mat, and I just love it! It makes you feel comfy no matter where you are.
Dr. George starts with my head… I get one needle in the top to relax me and one just above my eyes because he thinks I worry too much, BOL!
Don’t worry, it doesn’t hurt at all. Next I get one in each elbow and then my shoulder blades.
Then I get them in my lower back, hips and knees.
After all the tiny needles are in I just relax while Dr. George feeds me treats and I pose for pictures with my silly grin.
After 1/2 an hour all the tiny needles get taken out and I get a shot of Adequan, which is like a super-duper Gluocosimine shot right into my muscle so my body absorbs it faster. Then I get a nice massage and then go home to relax for the rest of the day. I’m looking forward to going to work tomorrow because I feel so good now.
