Complementary Alternative Veterinary Medicine (CAVM) like Chiropractic, Acupuncture and Physical Therapy
The CAVM list is for the discussion of alternative and complementary therapies in veterinary medicine. This is sometimes referred to as holistic veterinary medicine, but complementary and alternative therapies may or may not be holistic. Holistic really refers to the treatment of the whole animal by considering all factors that may be affecting the animal’s health. Such factors include the animal’s environment, its diet, its humans and other animals that it comes into contact with on a daily basis. The holistic approach to therapy may include only conventional therapies, but could include alternative or complementary therapies such as acupuncture or herbs or homeopathy. The CAVM list is a closed list. It is open to veterinarians, physicians, and those holding a doctoral degree in one of the medical basic sciences, such as biochemistry or physiology or anatomy, preferably with an academic appointment. It is also open to veterinary students on a case-by-case basis.

General information about Megaesophagus

Dr. Leigh Ann Clark, Clemson University
Her lab has been working with dogs affected by congenital idiopathic megaesophagus, currently focusing our efforts on German Shepherd Dogs. Currently, they are continuing to collect DNA samples from German Shepherd Dogs as well as dogs of other breeds that have been diagnosed with megaesophagus before one year of age. While they currently believe that the inheritance pattern of CIM in German Shepherd Dogs is complex, our work will hopefully allow them to determine both the true mode of inheritance and the specific genes involved in this disorder.

Gina Faye has run K9 Megaesophagus – 1 Click, 1 Share for a few years now and is a tremendous ambassador in all aspects of canine megaesophagus. She honors her Viking by doing as much as possible so she provides not only ME support but helps with networking anything ME including helping find support for ME dogs in shelters, requesting help in acquiring chairs or other needed ME items, etc. Her heart is HUGE and she gives fully to help as many as possible. Here are the links to see what she does for so many:|
