TCVM - Part of my Destiny in Veterinary Medicine

by Cheryl Chrisman, DVM, EdS, DACVIM-Neuro, CVA

My interest in veterinary acupuncture began in the early 1970’s when I was a resident in veterinary neurology at the Ohio State University. Dr. Marvin Cain, a nearby innovative practitioner from Cincinnati Ohio, had recently been introduced to acupuncture and had become very enthusiastic about its positive effects on his veterinary patients. His enthusiasm was contagious and in 1974 I attended an introductory course that he and some fellow practitioners organized in Kansas City, Missouri.
