The Art and Science of Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM)
The Art and Science of Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine is based on the principles of the yin and yang, the balance and harmony of the universe and the 5 element theory to recognize the patterns of disease.
Chiropractic focuses on the relationship between the structure and the function of the body and how that relationship affects the preservation and restoration of health.
Chinese medicine & Chiropractic attempt to find the root of the problem and treat the root to bring the animal back to harmony and good health.
Sport horses live a stressful life of travel, exposure to disease, physical and mental exertion. A wellness program is essential to keep your equine athlete happy, healthy and competing at the highest level. Dogs, Cats and other pets experience stress to their immune system and qi from the environment, lifestyle and changes in the household. Wildlife and exotics can experience stress from simply surviving in a captive environment.
5 Element theory can also help you understand the personality of your animals so you can have a more rewarding relationship. This is the first step in a harmonious household and successful training program. Basic behavior consults are part of every exam. Is your cat urinating outside the litter box ? Is your dressage horse unhappy ? Is your sweet old dog getting aggressive ? Maybe a more in depth behavior exam with all animals in the household or in a performance setting could help.
A combination of Acupuncture, Chiropractic care, Tui Na, Food and Herbal therapy can be very effective for disease treatment and prevention. Chinese medicine can work with western medicine to enhance the healing process and lessen the side effects of drugs.
