"Bradley” and Shen Calmer

by Janell Roth

When we adopted Bradley several years ago we understood there could be some behavioral problems.. We are his third owners, after being abandoned on the roadside as a puppy along with his litter mates. He was adopted, only to be neglected and rescued again. This is where we came in and he became a family member forever. He is a sweet boy, but does have serious anxiety issues.

Quick Questions and Answers with Dr. Xie

- by Huisheng Xie, DVM PhD

Q: What does tremor or quivering in dogs mean in the TCVM?

A: Tremor, quivering, shuddering, shaking/trembling in dogs can be caused by one or more of the following patterns:

1) Internal Wind due to Liver Blood or Yin Deficiency leading to Liver Yang Rising, which causes tremor, or quivering;

2) Qi Deficiency, which fails to hold the body, leading tremor of the body, or limbs;

3) Qi or/and Blood Stagnation (the body is trying to shake stagnation away);

4) Fear or submissive behavioral issue which is associated with the disharmony between the Heart and Kidney
