The skin is the body's largest organ and as a detoxification organ, many internal imbalances tend to manifest in the skin. TCVM provides a safe and effective alternative for treating skin issues, especially if skin disorders are not responsive to conventional medicine or if the owner prefers a more natural treatment protocol. Skin disorders are many time, difficult to resolve as it stems from a number of causes such as poor diet, toxins, hormonal imbalances, hypersensitivities, and infections. In this course, Dr. Salewski shares how TCVM can help skin and coat issues in dogs and horses.

A Traditional Chinese medicine approach to the treatment and management of congestive heart failure (CHF) for animals is valuable in cases where cardiac medications and or conventional diuretics are contraindicated due to weak organ systems, polypharmacy concerns, development of adverse side effects, when conventional treatment is ineffective, or when multiple systemic disease is present. Diseases included in the discussion are congestive heart failure due to chronic valvular disease in dogs and cardiomyopathy in cats. An evaluation of CHF from a TCM perspective is the focus of this course with Dr. Beebe including etiology, pattern differentiation and treatments. The use of herbal medicine will be highlighted but will also include acupuncture, food therapy recommendations and the concurrent use of conventional cardiac medications. As an added bonus, Dr. Beebe will also biefly cover pulmonary edema, the most common secondary disorder associated with CHF.

Upon completion of this course, practitioners will:

  • Understand common skin and coat issues in dogs and horses
  • Know treatment protocols for coat issues in dogs and horses
  • Learn how to effectively manage CHF in combination with conventional medicine to provide an integrative approach to this commonly seen veterinary disease
  • Know treatment protocols for congestive heart failure in small animals
