By Tina Gysin, DVM

Abstract

Acupuncture in combination with chiropractic treatment was successfully used to improve life quality of a geriatric Golden Retriever with polyneuropathy and operated larynx paralysis. Dry needle acupuncture was performed in three therapy sessions at intervals of 2 and 4 weeks.
Proprioception and coordination of the patient’s hindlimbs improved while the expiratory breath sound remained unchanged. The patient showed a significant improvement in endurance on daily walks. This case shows a variety of age-related Zang fu patterns and how they affect each other.
