As clients become more aware of available treatments, some are inquiring about the use of ancient medicines for their pets. Fetch dvm360 conference speaker Matthew Brunke, DVM, CCRP, CVPP, CVA—a rehabilitation specialist by trade—has heard their call and taken to integrating the practices of traditional Chinese medicine as a complement to modern science.

"As a rehab doctor, I don't treat necessarily with acupuncture for chronic lung disease or things like that—I look at it more for palliative care and for neurological problems and alleviating pain," he says.

In this video he explains when and why he employs 5,000-year-old techniques and how you can get started in your practice. Sarah Wooten, DVM, interviews.
