Xies Chinese Veterinary Herbology PDF
This medical system incorporates both acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine (CHM). Although many people associate Chinese therapies with acupuncture only, most patients in China (about 70%) are actually treated with Chinese herbs or a combination of herbs and acupuncture. Only about 30% of all traditional Chinese medicine patients receive acupuncture alone.
This book is intended to serve as a quick reference for practicing veterinarians and as a textbook for continuing education courses in TCVM. To assist the readers, the book is presented in three parts: Part 1 , Chinese Veterinary Materia Medica; Part 2 , Chinese Veterinary Herbal Formulation; and Part 3 , Clinical Application of Chinese Veterinary Herbology.
