Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine
Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (or "TCVM" for short) has been effectively used for thousands of years. Its guiding principle is that disease can sometimes be understood as an imbalance in the body, and healing can come through identifying the underlying pattern of disharmony. It activates the body's natural healing mechanisms to accomplish this, typically through acupuncture, herbal medicine, food therapy, and medical massage. TCVM works best when it is a part of a comprehensive medical plan, including other more traditional components of western medicine.
