Utilising acupuncture in a multimodal/multidisciplinary approach to equine and canine patient care, with Dr Avril Senior BVSc MRCVS MA SFHEA, Point to Point Veterinary Acupuncture


This talk will cover the basic mode of action of acupuncture and the differences between Western and TCM (Chinese) acupuncture, before concentrating on case selection and how it can specifically compliment other therapies.

Dr. Avril Senior will cover the role acupuncture can play in improving mobility and managing pain as well as the subtleties of when to schedule it in the treatment/rehabilitation process. Both equine and canine examples will be used.

The talk will be followed by a Q&A session so please bring your questions and unusual cases to discuss!
