How I Stumbled Upon TCVM

How I Stumbled Upon TCVM

by Marilyn Maler, DVM, Dipl, ACVSMR, Alachua, FL

Similar to the career adventures of many of my TCVM colleagues, I did not go in search of veterinary acupuncture … it found me. After graduation from the UF College of Veterinary Medicine, I accepted a job at a mixed practice hospital in South Florida. Once, one of my favorite clients insisted that I went to her farm to observe an all-day acupuncture/chiropractic clinic provided by an out-of-area veterinarian. This client made it clear that she wanted ME to learn acupuncture and chiropractic so that I could provide her with those services. I had no intention of adding acupuncture or chiropractic to my practice, but I figured I should humor my client and at least show up for a couple of hours.

TCVM to Treat Complications of an Epidural in a Dairy Cow

TCVM to Treat Complications of an Epidural in a Dairy Cow

by Steph Rhebergen, DVM, Abbotsford BC, Canada

A two-year old purebred red-and-white Holstein cow was referred for acupuncture a day after complications from an epidural during an embryo transfer procedure. The cow had collapsed after the administration of the epidural and was unable to rise for about two hours. When she was finally able to get up, she exhibited mild ataxia, decreased perineal tone, abdominal pressing to defecate and abnormal tail carriage. The owner said her appetite had decreased and she appeared to be uncomfortable.
