TCVM Treatment of a Behavior Disorder in a Labrador

TCVM Treatment of a Behavior Disorder in a Labrador

-Liane Sperlich, DVM, CVCH

Savannah, a three year old neutered female Labrador, was successfully treated for a behavior disorder using a Chinese herbal formula. The pet’s quality of life was very compromised and did not respond to training methods, medication, or herbal treatment prescribed by the owner. For two years the dog had been exhibiting fear-based reactions around the owners, other people, different situations and other dogs. The behavior was inconsistent and unpredictable, varying from startle reactions, panic, wildly barking and growling, to not recognizing the owners and acting fearful. These behaviors appeared to begin after severe illness as a puppy. The owners remember Savannah as being very loving when first adopted.

The Chi Institute appreciates you for writing to State Boards about the RACE CE issues. Chi Institute has worked very hard to apply CE credits for its courses to the individual state boards. At the time this newsletter was published, the Chi basic acupuncture program has been approved or recognized for CE credits by 30 states. 19 states have approved the Chi herbal, food therapy and Tui-na courses. The Chi Institute will continue to promote TCVM and fight for the recognition it deserves.

Abstract
A six year old, 9.25 lb, female spayed, domestic short hair cat was presented for examination. The cat had been pulling fur out excessively and chewing on her coat intensely for three to four weeks. She was diagnosed with parasites and External Wind. Her treatment consisted of a combination of a Chinese herbal formula, Jing-Tang Herbal’s External Wind, aquapuncture, manual parasite removal and nutritional supplementation. Her signs subsided quickly and her coat returned to normal.
