Product Description

Find out what acupuncture can do for you and your pets

Dr Jane Hunter has had an unusual career treating both animals and people with acupuncture. Twelve years after qualifying as a vet from Glasgow University, and with a PhD in antibiotic resistance, opportunity took her to the other side of the world to New Zealand. There her eyes were opened to less conventional treatment that challenged some aspects of standard veterinary and medical practice.

Back in Scotland, Jane began treating dogs and cats in pain with acupuncture, and was then encouraged to treat their owners too! In this book she shares her twenty-one years of training and experience, along with stories of the many animals, owners and other human patients she has met along the way, and describes how transformative acupuncture can be – not just for pain, but for a range of conditions, from common skin complaints to loss of smell and taste.

Content description:

18 chapters – each covering a different topic related to acupuncture (some autobiography at the start) and including the use of laser and electro-acupuncture ; 242pp, colour illustrations throughout, (85 colour images including a mix of wildlife and scenery; dogs and cats; human skin lesions - 8 black and white images including x-rays and human pain body maps)

Duncan Lawler quote:

“Definitely inspiring and great to read about real cases and the effect of acupuncture on real lives, rather than the constant cold emotionless numbers from trials and statistics.”
Duncan Lawler - Consultant physiotherapist and acupuncturist, Chair of British Medical Acupuncture Society (BMAS) Professional Services & author of Western Medical Acupuncture Protocols for Chronic Pain

Ann Hutchison quote:

“These real-life stories of Jane’s patients, both two-legged

and four-legged, are an absorbing, interesting and fun read for everyone. They are also educational and informative

for anyone in the veterinary and medical fields. Even with all

my years of experience using acupuncture to treat both

animals and humans, I was able to glean some new and

helpful tips from this book.”

Ann S. Hutchison—veterinary surgeon, veterinary & human

acupuncturist, member of the British Acupuncture Council and

BMAS, certified canine rehabilitation therapist &

senior partner at Dalblair Veterinary Surgery
