Greyhound Acupuncture By Dr David Gilchrist

Dr Gilchrist's first book, Manual of Acupuncture for Small Animals, and now out of print, enabled hundreds of veterinarians world-wide, to achieve many exciting results. As a result of such wide-spread interest in acupuncture therapy a need has developed for a more comprehensive, ailment oriented, practical textbook.

Greyhound Acupuncture fills that need.
COMPREHENSIVE Although the title would suggest that it is primarily concerned with greyhounds, this book in fact covers most common conditions of ALL canines, plus many others that affect the greyhound in particular. Greyhounds are used for illustration purposes. Many of the formulae are applicable to cats as well. There are over 125 pages describing in great detail the treatment of many ailments.

EASY TO USE The book is designed to lie flat on the surgery table beside the practitioner with ALL the information for each condition visible at a glance. (All the points, where to find them and how to stimulate them. Extensive use is made of photographs and line-drawings to illustrate precise point location.

UNIQUE Nowhere else is such a wealth of information of such a practical nature so readily available. The book is a "how-to-do-it" guide for the experienced and the beginner alike. Now in its 5th Edition.

PRESENTATION Spiral bound, for ease of reference and use, this will make a worthy addition to any professional library.

Equine Acupuncture By Dr David Gilchrist

In 1984 Dr David Gilchrist published GREYHOUND ACUPUNCTURE as an additional resource for his students around the world. While pursuing a series of veterinary acupuncture seminars, veterinarians kept asking for a similar book but on Horses. To fill this need, EQUINE AUPUNCTURE was first published in 1988.

EQUINE ACUPUNCTURE is in the same format as Greyhound Acupuncture. Spirally bound, its lie-flat structure and its one-condition per page format, allows for it to be kept close to the action. Suppose for example you were wanting to treat a sesamoid condition, you would open at page 77. On the left side of the open book you would find a short discussion followed by a listing of the acupuncture points appropriate for treating sesamoiditis, or for post surgical treatment of sesamoid problems. Each point is described verbally, using anatomical landmarks, and guidance given as to the depth of insertion for needles. On the opposite side of the book you will find diagrams further illustrating the location of the points.

For every condition, the book will display the all the information relative to the condition in the same way. It is not necessary to flick back and forth thru the book to find what is required to for treatment. It is ALL there and visible at one glance.

All of the important equine conditions treatable by acupuncture are listed alphabetically from appetite stimulation to vertebral pain. This book, now in its 5th edition, is a MUST HAVE for horse practitioners.

Lasers have become almost indispensible, not just because of their healing powers, but also for their ability to influence acupuncture points in a painless and aseptic manner.
