The definitive vet acupuncture reference text. Probably too heavy for most non-medical people, but manna from heaven for those studying acupuncture and TCM in the veterinary field.

book-essentWestEssentials of Western Veterinary Acupuncture
by Samantha Lindley and Mike Cummings

Where Schoen, in the book above, is discussing acupuncture from a Traditional Chinese Medicine perspective, Sam Lindley and Mike Cummings come at things more from a ‘Western’ medico-scientific bent. Sounds scary, but if you like ‘facts’ more than the more difficult to grasp concepts of TCM, this is the book for you.

During Covid

During the Covid Crisis, I am able to give advice to animals not in my direct care.

If you have a dog and you would like to consult with me, we can arrange telemedicine consultations. We are happy to talk to you from anywhere in the world. Telephone is usually sufficient, but Zoom and Skype can also be easily arranged.

New Policy for 2021: Our commitment to raw and fresh food feeding is total. We are unable to see your dog if you are unwilling or unable to consider feeding your dog a raw or fresh food diet.
