TCVM in the Clinic Tongue Diagnosis and TCVM Presentation With Clinical Cases Wet Lab With Clinic Patients for TCVM Treatment

Traditional Chinese Tongue Diagnosis in the Canine-

The canine tongue is a uniquely versatile organ. In addition to conveying food and water, the tongue assists in regulating body temperature and serves as a primary means of communication and connection. Observation of the tongue is a very useful diagnostic tool in Traditional Chinese Medicine, a process that will be demonstrated by review of select case studies, including a patient with transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder, followed through one year of treatment. In addition, case studies of geriatrics, renal failure patients, and cancer and chemotherapy patients will be discussed in this two-hour lecture.

TCVM for the Geriatric Patients-

Geriatric patients with multiple system pathologies present a unique challenge for practitioners. Their needs must be addressed with an eye toward optimizing quality of life. The Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM) diagnostic process, demonstrated through case studies in this lecture, is an essential tool for the modern veterinarian. This lecture will cover the most common TCVM diagnosis and treatment protocols. 1.5 hours
