Equine Uveitis Resolved By Haliotis Powder And Bo Yun San

Equine Uveitis Resolved By Haliotis Powder And Bo Yun San

By Karin I. Derfuss, DVM, CVA

This is not a complicated case, but a very significant one for me because I thought of myself as a small animal practitioner. Horse pulses have been elusive, at best, and I always joke around that I have a veterinarian for my own horse. You just can’t do everything!

Cozee’s Early Cushing’s Disease Successfully Managed with Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Formulas

Cozee’s Early Cushing’s Disease Successfully Managed with Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Formulas

By Linda Mackinnon, DVM, CVA

Cozee is a 25 year old Arabian mare used for light pleasure riding. She has been my patient for over 10 years and been a healthy horse except for a bout of hoof abscesses in her front feet, approximately seven years ago. At that time, Cozee had two surgeries at a local equine hospital for hoof abscesses, but the abscesses reoccurred shortly after the second surgery. Cozee was treated successfully with acupuncture and Chinese herbal formula Hot Hoof II, and the abscesses never returned. Previous medical history included mild allergic dermatitis in the summer, involving her tail and ventral midline.

Cervical Tumor Eliminated  by TCVM

Cervical Tumor Eliminated by TCVM

By Jody Bearman, DVM, CVA

Indy was a 6 year old spayed female Airedale Terrier whom I had seen since she was a pup.  She had been diagnosed with a cervical fibrosarcoma at the vet school after biopsies and CT scans, and it was huge, extending from her ear to her shoulder, pushing her esophagus and trachea to the left, wrapping around her facial nerves and causing right-sided facial paralysis.  I gave the owners Wei Qi Booster and Stasis Breaker to begin before the first TCVM appointment.

Assessing and Promoting Quality of Life in Geriatric Patients

Assessing and Promoting Quality of Life in Geriatric Patients

Huisheng Xie, DVM PhD and Vanessa Preast, DVM

As companion animals’ life spans increase, geriatric health care becomes a focus of veterinary practice. With geriatric patients, the primary goal is to promote their quality of life rather than cure their diseases. A number of reports have demonstrated that Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM) could help accomplish this goal.1-3
