We recommend using a special treat to distract your pet during the session. Most dogs start relaxing after 5-10 minutes and may not even need this, but we like to give them something ” positive” during their session to make them remember a positive and special experience. We want them excited to have their acupuncture! Some ideas include Frozen Peanut Butter in Kong, Frozen baby food (use a plastic jar and place a jar koozie on it; note- avoid onions and garlic, which can be toxic to pets). It’s best to use this treatment only for acupuncture, so it’s even more special.
