Acupuncture may be utilized in a variety of conditions and integrated into your ruminant practice. We will focus on common conditions, and common acupuncture points. Unfortunately one cannot learn this new skill set in one session. This session will demonstrate the value of integrating acupuncture into the care of your ruminant species. It is great if you are already utilizing acupuncture in your companion animal patients. This session will provide you opportunities to expand your acupuncture service into various ruminant species and scenarios. Various conditions will be discussed including, lameness, nerve injury, musculoskeletal injury, reproductive performance, and gastrointestinal conditions. For example, acupuncture can be utilized in dairy cattle with reproductive problems, show animals that are stiff and uncomfortable, rams that are lame, are neonates with diarrhoea. This session will present acupuncture as another tool in your arsenal against disease and pestilence. Acupuncture is not intended as a substitute for you current therapeutics. This session is intended to be more geared to the new ruminant acupuncturist. Suggested points and series of favourite points and generic guidelines will be given. I always feel recipes and guidelines are meant to be tailored to the individual
