    Bossut DFB. Revue d'Acupuncture Vétérinaire. 1985;23-24:25-37.L'auteur étudie l'effet analgésique de l'électroacupuncture par  dosage de B endorphine et de prolactine au niveau plasmatique  chez différents moutons. Il en résulte que l'effet obtenu est  probablement la conséquence du stress produit par la stimulation  électrique, même si le patient ne semble pas en souffrir.
