Sundae, my cat, gets her 2nd Acupunture Treatment

Back in December when my cat Sundae quit eating, I wrote how acupuncture helped Sundae start eating again.  I knew from appointments with my vet, Dr. Jacquie, that Sundae could have arthritis due to what she believed was a botched declaw done on Sundae. So when Sundae started fighting more with my younger cat, sleeping next to my head and being more lovey with me, I thought maybe she's in pain and should get another acupuncture treatment.  Plus, in May I'm going to Peru to hike Machu Pichhu and wanted to proactive in making sure Sundae was in good health and eating well.

From the Alta Vista website, accupuncture helps with
•Musculoskeletal problems, such as osteoarthritis, sprains, or disc disease 
•Dermatological problems, such as lick granulomas 
•Respiratory problems, such as feline asthma 
•Gastrointestinal problems, such as inflammatory bowel disease or inappetance 
•Cardiovascular, renal disease and epilepsy as well as certain behavioral problems 

I would love it if Sundae would quit hissing at my younger cat who I adopted 1.5 years ago but accupuncture hasn't resolved that yet.
This treatment I brought my camera and while I waited with Sundae for the 20 minutes while she "cooked", I took a couple pictures.  This was challenging because I knew I needed to hold Sundae's head so she wouldn't shake the needles loose but I couldn't backup far enough with my camera lens to take great pictures. The lighting was also dark so the pictures are a little grainy.

 At the end of the 20 minutes Sundae was laying on her side, ready to roll over...she was so relaxed an comfortable. Dr. Jacquie also gave Sundae an adjustment cracking her back at L4/L5.  Maybe she's so comfortable she'll cuddle up to the younger cat.  It doesn't hurt to hope.

Welcome back to Blogland!
Machu Piccu is in my wishing (and impossible dream) list.
Never heard before about the acupuncture treatment for cats: interesting.
