PBS Video 'Spotlight on Chinese Veterinary Medicine'

In early 2012, PBS visited the Chi Institute of Chinese Veterinary Medicine to make a short documentary on Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM). Interviewing third generation TCVM practitioner Dr. Huisheng Xie (founder of the Chi Institute) and renowned veterinary neurologist Dr. Cheryl Chrisman (emeritus professor of neurology at the University of Florida), the documentary explores the differences between Western medicine and TCVM, the particular strengths of each, and what conditions can be helped by TCVM. The program also shows numerous animals being peacefully treated with acupuncture, showing that for the vast majority, it is not a negative or painful procedure.

The Chi Institute, which is known as the premier TCVM training institute in the US, is where Dr. Lindsey Wedemeyer received her training in Chinese herbal medicine, food therapy and Tui-na. She has been a faculty member at Chi since 2010 and teaches both acupuncture and herbal medicine to other veterinarians.
