On paws and needles! A source reveals in the new issue of Us Weekly that a veterinarian makes biweekly house calls to Demi Moore’s L.A. mansion to give her Chihuahua, Vida Blue, acupuncture. The going rate? Up to $715 per session.
“There’s nothing wrong with her dog,” says the source. The G.I. Jane actress, 53, “is just really into holistic food and medicine for her animals, the way she is for herself."
The more than 2,000-year-old Chinese healing art is known to have a therapeutic effect on a wide range of animal ailments.
“It can calm down an anxious dog,” veterinarian Patrick Mahaney, who has treated Lisa Vanderpump’s beloved Pomeranian, Giggy, tells Us. “It also stimulates appetite and treats muscle spasms.”
The mom of Rumer, 27, Scout, 24, and Tallulah, 21, with ex-husband Bruce Willis, has been filming indie movie Blind in New York City with Alec Baldwin.
The actor, 57, plays a novelist blinded in a car crash that killed his wife. He rediscovers his love of writing when he falls for a woman played by Moore. The actress and Baldwin starred together in the 1996 thriller The Juror.
Blind is expected to hit theaters next year.
