Acupuncture for Horses

Many of your horse's disorders can be treated with acupuncture, or it can be applied concurrently to support ongoing Western medical treatment. I have also had very good results in some cases where traditional veterinary medicine yields limited results, for example Recurrent Airway Obstruction (RAO), recurring colic, or sweet itch.

In addition, I trained under Kerry Ridgway, DVM in Aiken (SC, USA) and learned a special technique for releasing your horse's tense muscles by properly placing just a few needles. Dr. Ridgway also taught me a method for diagnosing equine gastric ulcers. This is, in my opinion, one of the most commonly overlooked/misdiagnosed disorders in equine medicine, because Western methods of diagnosis of this condition are involved and expensive. This is further complicated by the fact that there is a wide range of symptoms that vary greatly from horse to horse, making it difficult to recognize. Using Kerry Ridgway's method, I am able to accurately and inexpensively determine if your horse suffers from these ulcers.

Among the horse ailments acupuncture can treat:

  • Pain
  • Tense muscles
  • Reduced exercise tolerance
  • Weight loss
  • Chronic respiratory problems
  • Recurring problems when in heat
  • Recurring colic
