This afternoon Charlie had an acupuncture treatment at the vets. He was so relaxed during his treatment that he fell asleep on my lap. We're noticing such an improvement in him from earlier today. He was having pain episodes, and his vet saw what it's like for him when he's having a bad day. The vet has also prescribed Tramadol as needed for pain.
We have decided to take him for weekly acupuncture with his vet, and twice a week rehab, where he will get massage, range of motion, and strengthening exercises with a specialist.
