Kimodo dragon given acupuncture

Sounds like this kimodo dragon probably has some sort of neuropathy with an autonomic component. (It would be interesting to hear how well his acupuncture works!)

Wow!

Nice story! Animals don't like to be in pain either. It will be interesting to see how accupuncture helps this poor dragon. Do you think that it may help humans?

Marie,

A lot of humans (especially in the 'eastern world') have used accupuncture to help relieve nerve pain. Some say that they got considerable pain relief from it; others say it didn't help. (My sister swore by it.)

This is the first time, though, that I've heard of accupuncture to help a LIZARD with neuropathy!!
