This guide to Chinese medicine addresses Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) for cats and dogs in a clear, comprehensible language, with assessment worksheets, diagnosis charts and photographs to assist you in making treatment decisions. Starting with the head and working toward the toes, it addresses a host common health problems (that may also correct behavioral issues). Use it as an adjunct to Western medicine or by itself to help bring your animal friend's body into balance through a treatment-and-prevention approach that can save both of you from undue stress. 412 pages, paperback, color plates, black and white illustrations.

In this book, you'll learn about:

  • The theory of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM): the five elements, the meridians, the eight principles, the vital essences
  • Diagnosis: what to expect; herbology, food therapy; introduction to acupressure and massage techniques
  • Treatment: eyes; nose and upper respiratory conditions; ears; teeth and gums; lungs (the metal element); heart and pericardium (the fire element); liver and gall bladder (the wood element); spleen/pancreas and stomach (the Earth element); kidneys and urinary bladder (the water element); large intestine (the metal element); bones and muscles; skin; immune system and the glands
