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.

Crystal Stone Formula Cured Moose’s Urine Stones

Crystal Stone Formula Cured Moose’s Urine Stones

by Anita Weiss

On April 29, 2007 I rushed my 7 year old male neutered cat to the veterinarian because he was crying when trying to urinate, not in the litter box, but in strange places, like my bed and some pillows on my couch. When he finished I looked to see a small puddle of bloody liquid.

TCVM Treatment of Intervertebral Disk Disease

by Huisheng Xie, DVM PhD MS

Intervertebral disk disease (IVDD) is commonly seen in small animal clinics. Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM), including acupuncture and herbal medicine, can be the effective sole therapy, or part of integrated therapy with Western medicine and surgery. This paper explains the TCVM etiology/ pathology and treatment of IVDD, and predicted outcome along with clinical case studies.

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.
