Does Dr. Brown recommend treating solely with TCVM?

 Dr. Brown is an Integrative Veterinarian trained in both Western Medicine and TCVM. She believes in integrating both Western and Eastern Medicine for optimal patient response.

 Western Medicine plays an important role for emergencies, pharmaceuticals/prescription medication, diagnosing diseases, labwork for treatment monitoring, and more 

 For example, patients treated with TCVM for chronic kidney disease still require regular labwork to monitor kidney values and response to treatment

What does Dr. Brown wish for pet owners to understand?  

 The sooner acupuncture and TCVM is started the better the results

 TCVM helps the body heal with time and commitment to treatment. For example, treating allergies with acupuncture, herbs and food therapy is a much slower process than treating allergies with steroids or injectable Western medication. However both Western and Eastern modalities can be utilized simultaneously in an Integrative approach to therapy 

 Many geriatric patients that receive regular treatments are being kept stable. Sometimes it is not obvious to pet owners until they stop treatment and the pet then takes many steps backwards that can be difficult to recover

 Preventive medicine is the best medicine even with needles!
