Kodak had accupuncture

Mom took today off-her hooman is coming into town and she also wanted to take Kodak to his first kitty accupuncture session. He came back, he hasn't meowed or anything so obviously he wasn't too bothered by it! He got 9 needles for his first session. One in his head, for relaxation, 4 around his lower back, 1 in each hind leg and 1 in each front leg. Each needle was for a different area: bladder, large intestines, stomach. SOme of the needles came out on their own after about 10 minutes-the needles in his back stayed in the longest. They were for his large intestines and mom thinks his arthritis.

Mom was pretty excited about his first accupuncture session. So much that she has set up another one for next thursday. But she wont be able to go, it will be our petsitter that takes him. The vet told mom to watch Kodak this week-his bowels, his mobility mom is going to start a chart of his poop and how he's walking.

I am very interested in how the acupuncture works for Kodak. My Mommie says she would try it in a heartbeat if we ever needed it!

How interesting. Kodak got acupuncture. He doesn't look unhappy or scared with those needles sticking out of him. It didn't hurt?

We hope it helps!

This is very interesting! We have never had acupuncture before. We don't even think they offer it anywhere near us, but interesting indeed!
We sure hope it helps Kodak!!

Wow, Kodak, what a good and calm kitty you are! We guess that the doctor did good with the needles and they didn't hurt.

We hope that they help you feel better!

What a good boy Kodak is, behaving for his acupuncture.

When my mum had a very sore back about 8 years ago, she got acupuncture and her back was much better for 6 months.

Kitty accupuncture is such an interesting idea. We hope it makes Kodak feel better.

My Lady knows some humans that have been helped by acupuncture. I say needles- yuck!
