How TCVM Changed My Life

How TCVM Changed My Life

by Ana Stela Fonseca, DVM Rio De Janeiro, BRAZIL

I will never forget the time when I was 8 years old and I saw a news segment about a race horse that had been put to sleep (he had broken his leg in an accident at the racetrack). It was that very same day that I told my mom, "mom when I grow up I will be a veterinarian so I can help horses, so they will not have to be put to sleep like that."

How to Treat Skin Problems with TCVM

How to Treat Skin Problems with TCVM

by Lauren Frank, DVM, CVA, CCRT

As the body’s largest organ, the skin is prone to disruption, and as a detoxification organ, many internal imbalances will manifest in the skin. According to VPI Pet Insurance, the top three reasons why dogs are brought to see their veterinarians are due to ear infections, skin allergies, and "hotspots." (For cats, skin allergies are the number five reason.) Almost every veterinarian can commiserate with having those nightmare skin cases in their career, those patients that never seem to improve, despite all the Western medications used. It is no wonder that veterinarians are challenged by skin problems; they are ubiquitous, chronic, and hard to resolve.
