Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM) and rehabilitation can benefit a wide range of different conditions in dogs, cats, horses and other animals.
Acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, food therapy and Tui-na (Chinese medical massage) can be used to treat most common musculoskeletal, respiratory, cardiovascular, endocrine (hormonal), urinary and reproductive conditions, in addition to conditions affecting the nervous system (brain, spinal cord and peripheral nerves).
Rehabilitation benefits pets with chronic, degenerative conditions such as arthritis, as well as improving recovery and return to function after injury or surgery.
For many conditions, especially chronic conditions of older animals or lameness in horses, conventional medicine is not entirely curative. For these animals, a holistic approach may be more successful than conventional treatment alone. A holistic approach combining acupuncture, herbal medicine, rehabilitation exercises and supplements as appropriate is a great option whether you have already tried many conventional veterinary treatments and not been fully satisfied with the results or simply want to take a more natural approach to your animal's healthcare.
This page provides links to further articles written by Dr. Wedemeyer about how TCVM and rehabilitation can benefit common selected conditions of dogs, cats and horses, and how it can be used preventatively to maintain and optimize health. Please note that this is not an exhaustive list of conditions that are treatable with these therapies.
