Twenty One Today!

Rae Hennessy - Tuesday, September 08, 2015

I received a lovely text today that I want to share with you.

"Thank you Rae for helping me reach 21. I had a mashed potato and good-o cake. Not so pleased with the bowtie or hat though. Love Billy."

I've been an animal acupuncturist for just a little longer than Bill has been on the planet and it isn't every day one of my patients gets to 21 years old. Apart from a touch of arthritis and not being quite so sharp eyed and steady on his paws as he used to be, Billy is in remarkable condition ( even for a dog half his age). Just goes to show what can happen when you have good genes and fabulous humans that love and care for you. Regular visits from your favourite animal acupuncturist don't go astray either ;-)

Happy Birthday Bill

Polly the Cattle dog’s mountain rescue!

Rae Hennessy - Monday, May 25, 2015

Earlier this month, Polly the cattle dog was walking in the Blue Mountains with her family when she took a tumble… a twenty metre tumble down a cliff. The Blue Mountains police rescue had to be called in to get her up from where she landed. Check out the story and the rescue pics on the police rescue Facebook page.


It truly warms my heart to know we live in a nation where our pets and companion animals can get this sort of help. Big thanks to the police rescue!!

By some lucky dog miracle Polly had not broken any bones and had no internal bleeding but she was struggling to stand and fell over when she tried to walk.

Polly’s owners called me and I went up to give her some acupuncture the next day.

 When I first saw Polly she had some swelling, soreness and was struggling to stand up but was bright, friendly and in remarkably good spirits   for a dog that had recently had such a serious fall.

polly the dog

 She was a fabulous patient from the outset and relaxed well into her first acupuncture treatment beautifully, despite being very sore.  By her second acupuncture treatment she was improving well, her swelling was greatly reduced and she could stand and walk without falling and after our third treatment, I’m am very pleased to say that Polly is walking pretty well and keen to chase the ball, if she can get anybody to throw it. She is still a bit unsteady and the accident may have aggravated some pre-existing spinal arthritis, which may pose an ongoing challenge, but at the current rate of improvement I am envisaging a full enough recovery for her to return to a happily active life.

Will keep you posted!!
