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.

Golden Yellow for Butler’s Nose

Golden Yellow for Butler’s Nose

- by Cynthia McFarland

Butler is a 19-year-old donkey, who came off the range as a wild burro at some point early in his life. He had apparently passed through a number of hands before I rescued him from a neglect situation in June, 2007. He definitely has found his forever home with me and I’ve been amazed at his intelligence, kindness and sense of humor.
