The author took his asthmatic cat in for a treatment, and the cat seemed to thoroughly enjoy it. The vet told him that it wouldn't completely cure the cat's asthma, but it should help with some of the symptoms.
For a list of vets in the Portland area that incorporate acupuncture and/or herbal medicine in their clinics, check out this previous post. Another reader of the blog also let me know that there is yet another good clinic- the Murray Hill Veterinary Hospital will treat animals with acupuncture as well as with Western treatment.
I'm sure there are more veterinarians who offer acupuncture around Portland-it's such a great alternative to pharmaceuticals.
