Why Do Some Dogs Dislike Being Needled?

by Shen Xie, DVM PhD

The majority of the canine population has no problem with, and sometimes even enjoys lifetime acupuncture treatments. However, some dogs may develop an aversion to needles after several initial acupuncture sessions. Why and what to do?
It is always fun to figure out what our four legged creatures feel and think. There may be three possible reasons why some dogs say “no more acupuncture needles please, Doc”:

The Use of Acupuncture and Yang Yin Xi Feng to Treat a Geriatric Dog

by Donna Hein, DVM, CVA, Tomball, TX

Gus was referred to me on January 28, 2013 for ataxia from an equine acupuncturist who had performed one acupuncture treatment to no avail. The dog had not been treated with conventional western medicine but only Chinese medicine.

Spleen Qi and Kidney Jing Deficiency in a Cow

Beverly K. Chevallier, DVM, Western Grove, AR

A three-year-old Angus cow was presented at Western Grove Veterinary Clinic on August 30th, 2013. Though the cow appeared alert and maintained a healthy appetite, she was plagued with chronic diarrhea and severe, rapid weight loss. The owner had de-wormed her with Ivomec® (Ivermectin) three times within a three-month period to no avail.

My Fateful Moments

My Fateful Moments

Patricia A Perkins, BHS, DVM, CVA, CAC, CVH, CCRT, Lees Summit, MO

There are moments in everyone’s life when fate reveals herself and guides you along an unexpected path.  Among the many small “fateful” moments in my own life, there are two that stand out vividly: one involved an off-hand comment at a dog training seminar and the other a red textbook and a gentleman named Wei.

TCVM for Health Maintenance

TCVM for Health Maintenance

Patricia A Perkins, BHS, DVM, CVA, CAC, CVH, CCRT, Lees Summit, MO

Many clients seek us out when their pets have chronic diseases that western medicine has failed to cure.  As veterinarians trained in Chinese Veterinary Medicine, we are often times “the doctor of the last resort”. While TCVM is very effective in controlling chronic diseases and restoring health, the best use of TCVM, and perhaps of all health care approaches is to detect and reverse the imbalances before a disease occurs. By monitoring the subtle changes (including tongue color, shape, coating and pulse quality) with regular checks and balancing an individual’s constitution according to the relationships of the Five Elements, TCVM can achieve the goal of preventing diseases and maintaining optimal health.
