This week on Animal Instinct, Celia interviews Dr. Timothy Mann, the Medical Director at Brooklyn Cares Vet. Dr. Mann tells us about using acupuncture to treat animals. This program has been sponsored by The International Culinary Center. Today’s music has been provided by Hardbodies.

“On reptiles, acupressure is absolutely an option. Of course not going to put a needle through a turtle’s shell for a number of reasons.” [10:15]
