Acupressure for Pets


A couple weeks ago, Dezi’s World posted about how to get a cat to keep its claws retracted while massaging and in the comments, I asked if they might have information for a cat (Mr. M) who has arthritic paws. They did and I had never heard of Feline Acupressure.

They even give pets, including horses –  Acupuncture. Who knew?!?Acu+punt+poten+hond

As I googled this topic, I found many charts and am sharing a couple of the best. In 2011, the Conscious Cat wrote a blog about how to do this.

  1. I had acupuncture done on my little Poodle’s back quite a few years ago when he fell off the couch. I could tell he was hurting. It wasn’t serious but my vet at the time did acupuncture on his back. She said to keep him fairly still for a few days following treatment and it would probably take two or three treatments. HAHA! Keep a young Poodle still for a couple of days. Good grief. Well, I did my best. He actually recovered with only one treatment. Boy, I wish I could afford acupuncture for me! LOL!

    1. I only learned about silvervine when Purrseidon and Mr. M tested Cat-a-bliss blends. Neither of they had shown particular interest in ‘nip, so I doubted they would be good testers.
      I was wrong.
      I don’t know how she does it, but the cats LOVE-LOVE-LOVE her blends and Mr. M is suddenly sprier than he’s been in years.
      Apparently silvervine is indigenous to
      Asian countries, so I don’t know if it’s something we can grow in the garden… speaking of the garden, despite Purrseidon & Mr. M’s love of Cat-a-bliss blends, they basically ignore their own catnip plant, except for seeming to like to lounge near it.
      Very odd!

      1. We don’t purrticularly care fur da nip mommy grows either. Least no till it’s dried and crushed. As fur growin’ it in our own gardens, mommy checked da seeds a while back when we furst learned of it, and they was a little too costly fur us, but we’s sure it could be grown as any other vine.

        Luv ya’
