In 2013 my 10 yr old miniature dachshund Nikki was suffering with mineralization in her neck.  This is something that won't go away on it's own and I didn't want to put her through surgery.  She had reached a point where she couldn't turn her head from left to right or up and down because of the pain.  One weekend she was in so much pain that her body trembled.  I reached the point where I thought putting her down was the best answer.  Dr. Fraser suggested acupuncture and I thought why not.  She made a plan for up to 6 treatments and after only 2 we saw results that were just amazing.  Nikki was able to move her head in a normal fashion and she showed no signs of pain.  Dr. Fraser also recommended an herbal supplement along with the acupuncture.  Nikki will be 12 years old in December and she's doing great.  She's full of spunk, has great mobility in her neck and acts like a much younger dog.
