A Case of Nasal Lymphoma Solved with Dr. Xie’s Formula.

A Case of Nasal Lymphoma Solved with Dr. Xie’s Formula.

by: Inna Magner, DVM, CVA

We love to hear success stories from our students and graduates. Dr. Inna Magner, a 2015 Chi CVA, recently shared the story of her cat, Boxer and how TCVM saved his life. Boxer is a 10 year old domestic long-haired male cat, who was diagnosed with nasal lymphoma in October of 2014. When Dr. Magner’s family opted out of the suggested radiation treatment for nasal lymphoma by several oncologists, they turned to Dr. Huisheng Xie of the Chi Institute for alternative treatments. Dr. Xie examined Boxer and placed him on three potent Chinese herbal formula and also included acupuncture treatment in the initial stages. The herbs were introduced into Boxer’s daily diet, and with them Boxer’s condition improved. Today, nearly one year after Boxer’s lymphoma’s diagnosis, he is free of clinical signs of nasal lymphoma. “Thanks to Dr. Xie’s recommendations, the wonderful consulting team at the Chi Institute and Jing Tang’s formulas, my cat is doing very well now.”, said Dr. Magner.

How I Got Into Traditonal Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture

How I Got Into Traditonal Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture

by Ronald Koh, DVM, MS, CVA, CCRP, CVCH, CVFT

Switching from a general practitioner to a TCVM practitioner, I often get the question, “How did you get into acupuncture or Chinese medicine?”  While my story is pretty typical, I believe the most interesting thing about it is that I know it is not just my own story, but it is shared with hundreds of other veterinarians who found belief and faith in TCVM the way I do.

How to Treat Cushing’s Disease

How to Treat Cushing’s Disease

by Ronald Koh, DVM, MS, CVA, CCRP, CVCH, CVFT

 Hyperadrenocorticism, or Cushing’s disease, is a condition where the adrenal glands produce excessive glucocorticoid hormones and results in clinical signs such as a increased thirst, increased urination, increased hunger, pendulous abdomen, enlarged liver, hair loss, lethargy, muscle weakness, obesity, increased panting, skin changes, and immunosuppression. Cushing's Disease can be subdivided into pituitary dependent (85% of all cases) and adrenal dependent (15% of all cases). Currently, two medications that are commonly used to treat pituitary dependent Cushing's disease are mitotane and trilostane. Both of these medications have their respective benefits and side effects. Side effects such as weakness, vomiting, anorexia, diarrhea, and ataxia occur in dogs receiving mitotane or trilostane. If not treated, Cushing’s disease is usually progressive in nature with a poor prognosis for quality.
