Emily Abraham, DVM, CVA: It's a treat to be able to jump into an acupuncture room and just like kind of take a deep breath and just unwind with these animals and connect with them. And there's other indications for acupuncture, as you know. [It] can be used for emergency breathing, respiratory distress, anxiety, when patients are having seizures, vomiting, [and] nausea. And so I like educating my clients about acupressure, which they can perform at home or on their way to the veterinarian, as well as teaching them about dry needle, electro-acupuncture, [and] Aqua-acupuncture...It's an absolute honor to be able to treat these guys.
