Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM) has been practised on humans and animals for the past 3000 years. It is an ancient medical practice that comprises of Acupuncture, Herbal medicine, Food Therapy and Tui-na. By combining these modalities, TCVM helps restore the body back to a state of balance, thereby preventing disease and allowing healing to start.
Dr Jasmine’s special focus in alternative medicine is in TCVM, where she uses the 4 different modalities to formulate the best treatment plan for your pet. In principle, disease occurs when the body is imbalanced. After a thorough questionaire and examination of your pet, Dr Jasmine will be able to identify your pet’s weaknesses and imbalances, and help prevent minor symptoms from getting worse in the long-term.
Your pet may benefit from TCVM if it has the following health conditions:
- Intervertebral Disc Disease
- Degenerative Myelopathy
- Urinary Incontinence
- Heart Disease
- Kidney Disease
- Liver Disease
- Skin problems
- Behavioural problems
- Sleep disorders
- Thyroid imbalance
- Hormonal imbalance
TCVM is NOT usually suitable as sole treatment for emergency or critical cases that need stabilization and close veterinary monitoring in a hospital. We advise that for such cases, please bring your pet to the nearest 24-hour veterinary hospital for further workup. After the condition has been stabilized and the pet is discharged, we welcome consultations for implementing TCVM to restore your pet’s health back to a natural balanced state.
In some cases, we recommend a full conventional diagnostic work-up be done on your pet prior to starting TCVM, especially if the condition is acute and severe. If any work-up has already been done, we welcome a referral report of test results and history which you can request for, to be sent to us prior to our consultation.
If you are interested to try TCVM for your pet, contact us for an appointment.
