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.
