Not long ago a childhood friend who lives on the other side of the country sent me a message about his sweet 3 legged dog Hank.
Hank had significant arthritis and was showing signs of severe pain that medication alone was not able to handle. I suggested that in addition to the western medications; Hank see a veterinary acupuncturist asap. The following 2 videos are of Hank before acupuncture and after his first couple treatments. I think they are quite heartwarming and show the power of integrative medicine.

Hank after acupuncture (yay!):
