Lucky US Pets Get Stuck on Acupuncture

Interesting. This is the second time I’ve seen an article on Yahoo! about acupuncture for pets. There were a couple of interesting facts and figures:

  • “Out of 86,000 veterinaries worldwide, between 900 and 2,000 practice acupuncture, according to professional groups, whose numbers are also rising.”
  • The International Veterinary Acupuncture Society counts 900 members in the United States.

So, there are 900 vets who practice acupuncture for 150 million+ pets in the U.S. (cats are about 80 million).  Furball’s pretty lucky that we have Dr. Sara Skiwski nearby. 🙂
