The most common question a pet owner asks their veterinarian is “What food should I feed my dog or cat?” Most veterinarians recommend a commercial food made by one of the pet food manufacturers, in particular “prescription” based dog foods intended to treat a specific disease condition or a “scientifically balanced maintenance diet”. The vast majorities of these foods are highly processed or refined grain-based pet foods.
There is a growing trend in the United States away from these commercial pet foods to natural, fresh, whole, unprocessed foods as the best way to promote health and prevent disease in our pet animals. Join Dr. Signe Beebe to understand how Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM) Food Therapy can be used to formulate diets based upon an individual dog's or cat's constitution, life-stage, or geographic region as preventative health care. In the event of disease, TCVM Food Therapy can be used as an adjunct to any conventional or Chinese medicine therapy the animal may be receiving to enhance and consolidate the effects of treatment. In some disorders, it is impossible for many animals to recover without a change in diet, such as with skin and immune disorders. In this course, learn the basic principles and applications of food therapy in animals. Attend this course and see why the founding father of Western Medicine, Hippocrates, said “Let your medicine be your food and your food be your medicine”.
In addition to food therapy for small animals, Dr. Michael Salewski discusses disorders of the Kidney in TCVM, focusing on kidney failure, urinary incontinence, and wei degeneration. The differential diagnosis for each condition will be covered, as well as recommended acupuncture and herbal treatment.
