This guy, JINKS. He steals our hearts every time he comes in. This little guy has been suffering from hindlimb weakness and muscle atrophy. His symptoms are related to a type of myelopathy. We are seeing WAY TOO MUCH of this type of condition. In Chinese medicine this is often related to an imbalance of kidney yin, qi and yang. However, when we run our Bioscans we also detect nerve inflammation and demyelination. There are two possible causes of this:
1. recurrent vaccines stimulating the immune system.
2. flea/tick/heartworm preventatives as these are known neurotoxins. Along with the toxins in vaccines - formaldehyde, mercury, aluminum, fetal cells, etc as these can also cause nerve inflammation.
Yesterday was his second acupuncture treatment and he is truly an amazing patient! He is an EARTH element, so he is EASY GOING! We are looking forwards to improving this guy’s quality of life, the best that we can! #healthypup #holisticvet #veterinaryacupuncture #veterinarychinesemedicine
