Reviews from my customers

"Our dog Boo developed major problems with her hindquarters last December. She could no longer raise or lower her paws. She was dragging both her hind limbs. We were worried and were already preparing to say goodbye to our very old and very loyal four-legged friend. We took good care of her. She deserved this because she was always there for us. Now we were all there for her. We lifted her up with a shawl so she could still walk small stretches in the yard. At our veterinarian's office, we found that she was not in pain. Fortunately. Through this veterinarian, we were made aware of acupuncture for animals. Never heard anything about it. We started to try ....... and lo and behold after a few treatments her legs started to move again. After a few more treatments, she was able to walk small distances with little support. The treatments continue. Boo happily walks to the vet and allows herself to be treated very easily. It seems like the treatment is just part of life and that she feels it helps her. Now she walks around the garden all by herself without support. Rolls, smells and digs in the garden again. Thanks to these treatments, we hope to give her a beautiful senior life. She has earned that."

"Evy, one of my Border Collies has trouble getting up after a day of working with the sheep. She walks stiff and rigid. Sometimes this persists for a few days where she limps. Through Facebook I see that Anneke does acupuncture on animals. After doing some reading up, the thought was soon. "it's worth a try". After an extensive intake and examination, it was suspected that Evy soured in her muscles. Acupuncture could help her. Thus began the first treatment then repeated several times over a short period of time. Evy improved quickly. She is more flexible and has no more pain symptoms. She played with the other dogs again. Meanwhile, we still come quarterly for a "maintenance treatment." Evy turns 9 this year.... But jumps around like a young dog! A happy dog ... makes a happy owner!"

I then started searching the Internet for another solution and came across the website of Qi 4 Paws. Acupuncture, well you have to believe in it some people say. My email detailing Maggy's problem was written, I had no hope that there was a treatment for it. Anneke wrote; yes I do have treatment for that, and the first consultation was arranged. In this consultation, Anneke asked a lot of questions; she also saw Maggy, lying on the floor like a heap of misery. After her examination she began putting needles, they had to stay in place for fifteen minutes, this did not bother Maggy. Maggy's diet was also adjusted on Anneke's advice. Miracles don't exist, or do they? Not that she immediately felt completely good again, but you could see Maggy's eyes shining again. She also wanted to go outside with the other dogs, I thought at the time, it can't be just that couple of needles could it? After four appointments, I had my Maggy May back, happy and cheerful as she used to be. On top of that, Maggy's hair texture has changed, firmer and shinier. Anneke thank you so much, you have given me back our Maggy."

"I think Anneke is a pleasant person to deal with and so does my dog. Noya clicked right away and that's kind of nice. Anneke took all the time to note all my dog's problems and did an overall check. Noya got 8 needles in her body while Anneke explained well how it works. My dog just stayed put and after a while the needles spontaneously fell out. Anneke ended the session with a little fooling around with Noya with a toy. Now after three treatments it is different. Her pulse has improved, her tongue looks completely different and more beautiful. At home, she is suddenly very confident and acts like the leader who is completely done with the meddling behavior of her future pack successor. Her teeth we all got to admire again.... And then our finest moment: long-lasting fireworks are set off again in the street. As usual, my youngest Border Collie then comes barking too me. I then sit on the floor and hold her stiffly against me and she quickly calms down. The moment I am sitting like this, I suddenly feel another body against my legs: that of Noya lying curled up against me. No shivering, very stiff but not hiding in the transport box that has been standing into our living room for her since September. For me, an unprecedented emotional moment because my dog seeks contact with me and for a moment she doesn't feel like totally unreachable. I am very glad we started this treatment and see this as a great tool to help my dog with her fear of fireworks. Thank you Anneke, this works for us."

"Our dog Rocky had been suffering intermittantly from an ear infection in his left ear for almost 1.5 years. We also noticed that Rocky was not comfortable in his proverbial skin. He no longer liked being lifted and would growl occasionally. Almost everything western veterinary medicine had to offer Rocky, we had tried but had not found the solution. Anneke took all the time for us and for Rocky, explained exactly what she was going to do and did some tests on him. And indeed, a number of energy pathways were disrupted including one that exits at his ear. The pain Rocky indicated when lifting was also caused by this. After only a few treatments, the pain was gone and we noticed that hairs began to grow again behind his ear. Acupuncture, good nutritional advice and the right medication have ensured that his ear infection is healed, his bald spot is completely gone and he no longer has pain. Very special to be able to see and experience up close what can be achieved through close cooperation between Eastern and Western medicine. Grateful to have been given this opportunity."

" Tessa was already quite old when she got a heart murmur, she was given medication for that. In addition, her back was increasingly causing her trouble. Anneke suggested trying acupuncture and I was open to that. Tessa has, I think, had acupuncture once every 2/3 weeks for almost a year for her back pain from Anneke. The difference was really obvious. Before the treatment she could hardly get up, after the treatment I always walked with her in the woods and she jumped over a branch again with ease. Anneke was always very sweet and compassionate and Tessa was happy to see her every time, even if it was in a veterinary practice which, like most animals, she was not a fan of. Unfortunately, acupuncture does not stop old age either and Tessa passed away last summer, but the acupuncture certainly made her last period bearable and worthwhile."

"Hello, I am Sammy, a kitten of 14 years. For a few years now, I was not so comfortable in my beautiful black skin. I licked myself to bloody bits and was very bitchy to everyone. The little dogs and the cat who also live in my house were just afraid of me. Once we arrived at Anneke's place, she immediately felt many things that were not comfortable in my body. She would press with her fingers on certain spots and they would hurt me very much. She then put a few needles in my little body, then I would sit there quietly for fifteen minutes to half an hour. When Anneke pressed the same spots again after that, they (almost) stopped hurting! Great, it looked like magic! After 1 treatment, I was also rid of the diarrhea I had been having for months, so I (but especially my little mommy) was very happy about that! For the other organs, I had treatment weekly or every other week for several months. I have become a completely different kitten. I have my cone off by now and don't lick myself anymore. The acupuncture given to me by Anneke has absolutely helped me feel much better and finally comfortable in my skin again!!! Thank you again dear Anneke!!!"

"Nera our sheltie of 5 years, has had two litters. After her last litter, she was less comfortable in her own skin. She made less contact with me and her coat was visibly less beautiful than before. She also slept more and was less active. A general blood test gave no abnormalities yet I still did not have my happy Nera back. Now Anneke performed an acupuncture treatment on her. The very same day I noticed a big difference. We have now had three treatments and I am very positive! She is playing with our other dogs again and comes for a hug regularly. We still need to see if more treatments are needed but so far I am already very happy with the results!"

"Spiky became increasingly ill overnight in March 2019. He still ate and drank but we had to feed him the food because he could hardly walk. We also had to lift him outside but he stayed where I put him. Spiky had the very heaviest painkillers he could have but they did not work sufficiently. We also really thought we had to put him to sleep because we couldn't put him through that pain. We made an appointment with Anneke and fortunately we were able to get an appointment very quickly. And a miracle really happened because after only the first treatment, he was almost pain-free. We came home and he jumped right back on the couch which he hadn't done for 2 weeks. After having acupuncture a few more times, I can safely say that Spiky has recovered."

"In early April, I came to the Animal Hospital Groningen with my increasingly poorly running young Cavalier Morris (19 months). He has always had nutrition and defecation problems. He was in a lot of pain. Immediate action was taken, he went under anesthesia and pictures were taken. This showed narrowing in his back and mild osteoarthritis at his hips. To my surprise, Anneke had immediately given him an acupuncture treatment while he was under anesthesia. I didn't know they could do that with animals. With pain medication and nutritional advice and a new acupuncture appointment, Morris and I went home. He improved visibly. He is still on light pain medication/anti inflammatories and we are not there yet but after 2 treatments I had the happy, enthusiastic Morris back. Anneke explains everything clearly. Together with the nutritional advice, Morris has already been much better. I would definitely recommend it to anyone!"
Annemieke with Morris
"I can't believe how happy and healthy he is with his new diet. I asked Anneke for help with his nutrition a few months ago. She responded very quickly and was very patient with my millions of questions! She is now the nutritionist for all my dogs! Thank you so much! "

"Ever since French Ferdinand moved in with me from the shelter some ten years ago, he has had problems with his intestines. Very often he had diarrhea and he threw up a few times every week. Many examinations later, there was a high chance that this was something chronic. So how to proceed now? Drugs for the rest of his life? Well, what has to be, has to be, but I preferred a more natural solution. Fortunately, there was Anneke with her experience in Traditional Chinese Medicine. This was an option that appealed to me much more than one with chemical agents. After a "Chinese" diagnosis, she formulated a custom diet for Fer using only fresh ingredients. Step by step, we introduced it. Who would have thought that Mr. would eat with relish things that are not at all catty? If it wasn't already, eating has really become the highlight of the day for Fer. But most importantly, of course, is the result. I have only one word for that: stunning. He rarely vomits anymore, and maybe this is too much information, but he has never produced such beautiful droppings. We are now about three and a half months in and, as the last scan showed, the inside does not yet look as it should, but it is a lot calmer. It will always be a weak spot and we are watching him like a hawk, but if it continues like this, I'll sign for it. Thank you, Anneke!"
Maaike with Frans Ferdinand
"Switching to fresh food is the best decision we ever made for our dogs! Our oldest miniature Schnauzer ate kibble for 8 years. Due to obesity, she was only allowed to eat a ¼ of the amount so she was constantly hungry. She had little energy, played little, could not jump on the bed by herself and walks were very stressful for her. She is now eating more and losing weight. She has more energy and is acting like a 2-year-old puppy again. Our second dog made a snoring noise for which we have already been to three veterinarians and to a specialist. Since she is on fresh food, she makes this sound twice a day instead of every 20 minutes. If you have any doubts about starting fresh food..... do it! It will be the best decision you ever make for your animals. Anneke thank you so much for everything!"

"Hi, I'm Troi and I'm 16.5 years old. You wouldn't say would you? Anneke is an acupuncturist. She does not treat me with needles (because I'm sensitive) but with a laser pen and it works fine for me. Anneke is very sweet and takes into account my sensitive side. With the laser pen, she affects different acupuncture points which makes the energy in my body flow better. It works so well, then I think I am being treated for my back pain, for example, but hey, then it turns out that my digestion has also improved and I no longer suffer from incontinence either! I visit Anneke regularly because her treatments allow me to still enjoy my old age well."
