Dr. Mathis, of My Other Vet, uses all five branches of TCVM – Acupuncture, Herbs, Tuina (massage), Food Therapy and Qi Gong (energy work) to lead your pet back to health.
About 3000 years ago, in China, Five Element Theory was introduced. This theory is a way to look at the world, relating elemental phases to weather, seasons, health, sounds and many other things. It is one of the diagnostic theories of Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM) which has been proven and tested for millennia.
In addition to TCVM, Dr. Mathis has been doing positive reinforcement behavior work for over 30 years. Behavior work ups can be done alone or integrated with Traditional Chinese Medicine.
Her excellent Western medical training at UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine allows her to interpret and integrate any on-going Western treatments your pet is receiving. Integrating Eastern and Western medicines ensures your pet is receiving the best of both worlds, so Dr. Mathis tries to work closely with your regular Western veterinarian.
