Gold beads are implanted into specific acupuncture points, which vary depending on the medical condition and the individual energetics of the animal by a qualified veterinarian. This is a safe, drug-free, and effective way to help patients by providing a permanent form of acupuncture.

The veterinarian must ensure the animal's health before the procedure. In particular, their liver, kidneys, and heart should be reasonably healthy to undergo anaesthesia, which we would check by means of a blood test. Although the procedure is short, anesthetizing the animals is necessary to ensure they're still for the surgery. An X-ray is usually taken before implantation to determine a diagnosis and bead positions. Shaving the hair over the implant sites and sterilizing the area prevents infection. Beads remain for the life of the patient stimulating acupuncture points and meridians permanently. We recommend that the patient never undergoes an MRI scan as the magnetic beads may interfere with it.

If the patient has multiple areas of musculo-skeletal disease, for instance, wobblers in the neck and spondylosis of the lumbar spine, then the procedure would treat both ailments. Although it's always better to treat a disease in its earliest state and no one can ever guarantee anything, even severely disabled animals can respond nicely to the procedure. We see an improvement sometimes the same day, and often have as high as a 75% success rate for improving the pet overall. Like other forms of holistic medicine, the beads will not harm the pet.

How do the beads work?

Dr. Durkes who revolutionised the procedure in the USA, theorizes that certain diseases are caused in part by a localized alkalosis, or a negative charge in body tissues. He speculates a negative charge to the tissue is caused by vaccines or diet. The beads appear to give off positive charges and can normalize dysplastic joints especially in young dogs.

In wobblers disease and ventral bridging spondylosis, perhaps the ionic abnormalities destabilize the vertebra within the spine. In wobblers disease, the bone inside of the vertebral canal gets thicker in a desperate effort for stabilization. This compresses the spinal cord. The beads help tighten surrounding ligaments and connective tissues to stabilize the neck. The patient may feel better soon after implantation, but improvement might occur over several more months because it takes time for calcium to be re-absorbed and pressure to be lifted from the spinal cord. Success depends on whether the body can repair damage from pinching the spinal cord.

In the case of spinal spondylosis or ventral bridging of the vertebra, the body is also attempting to stabilize unstable vertebrae. The beads tighten the connective tissue and we believe give off positive charges to normalize ionic changes in the tissue. The patient feels better soon after surgery, but the X-rays might not show improvement for at least six months. We try to focus on the patient, not the radiograph.

Long term Dr Durkes gets a gradual remodeling of the joint. In spondylosis of the back, he has had complete remodeling of the back within 2 years post implant. In all other joints he has 30- 40% remodeling.

In epileptic seizures the gold beads are correcting electrical blockages in the nervous system. These electrical blockages will eventually cause seizures if the body is unable to correct them.
According to Terry Durkes D.V.M. approximately 60% of epileptic pets are cured. They no longer have seizures and will no longer need phenobarbital. If on potassium bromide(KBr) they will have to continue its use. Another 20% will no longer have seizures but they are required to take phenobarbital at a reduced dose. The final 20% will continue to have seizures, in some cases fewer and less severe and some of course will not be helped at all.
