Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM) focuses on balance. In my practice, I
see many FIV patients - some with a complex set of medical conditions and
some which are symptom free. TCVM balances the body and addresses any
complex conditions as well. A TCVM exam evaluates the body just like a 'Western type' exam, but also
evaluates things like tongue color and pulse to determine how the body can
be best maintained.
Acupuncture along with Chinese herbs can very useful. In TCVM, the diet you feed is 'food therapy'. Think of an Olympic athlete - they have a diet that is catered to their
particular needs. This would be the same in any TCVM patient.
