Back in the late 1980's, I wrote and sold a booklet specifically for horsemen called "Acupuncture for Horses" and was fortunate enough to sell over 15,000 copies through the years (many to veterinarians).

If anyone has a lameness problem, I could email you the section in the booklet showing the site for your particular problem.  The acupuncture points can be massaged, needled, injected, lasered, etc (although having  a vet do the procedure is recommended!)

I found that acupuncture worked better on lameness than it did on sickness, although there are points for both.   Sorry I can't post the entire booklet, because it is still being sold.

I have found it very beneficial on horse with allergies.
We have many oaks where I live and we had a mare that developed a cough with hives she only coughed in the evening and early morning found out this is a true sign of allergies a friend of mine was a vet and real big on acupuncture.
I asked her one day if that voodoo stuff really work she said it sure does she would come over and treat the horse for free to show me it worked. I told her I didn't care if she jingled bones and chicken feet over the horse as long as it helped her cough and her hives.
It absolutely did. I have yet to see anything like it and I am a real believer.

I use an Eltro-Acupuncture unit which is non-invasive - no needles.  It even lights up when you are directly over the acupuncture points, so anyone can use it.

The brand I have is  PYUN-JAC Electro-Acupuncture and I found it on the internet.  There are many brands and prices.

We find that it is good in finding hot spots of trouble.  It seems to register strongest in places where there is problem soreness.  That just confirms what we've seen when sitting behind them, so if there is a question as to where the problem is, we now can trust the unit to narrow it down faster for us.

Beyond that, when used for about 3 minutes on each hot spot, it does seem to help.  I would say it's better for everyday soreness more than something acute.

When I've used it on myself, I could feel pain subside, so I know there is something to it.

As with many "complimentary" things, it doesn't zap it out quickly.  The more it's used, the more it works.

My summery would be that it does help, but don't expect it to take care of the big stuff.

I hope that helps.

horseprerace.com just posted a FREE book to download on equine acupuncture.  But it doesn't give the acupuncture spots, and it goes on about how ONLY vets an do it.   Technical rubbish.

  Plenty of books out there on acuPRESSURE.  Non-invasive, anyone can do it.

I've tried that for my own headaches and found that unless the exact point is located, it doesn't work.  That's why the electro-acupuncture works best for me.  It lights up when it's over the specific meridian so there is no guessing or missing it.  By just sending an electric pulse through the skin, it also is non-invasive, as in no needles.

I know people who take the time to learn the points and they do have success with acupressure.  But for me - I need the help.

If Doc Petkus is still around he always did a great series. As mentioned for secondary lameness, there's nothing better!!
