Veterinarians study Acupuncture for animals

Dr. Zinderman is a licensed veterinarian who wanted an alternative solution to animals' health problems. He attended the Chi Institute for Chinese Veterinary Medicine and shows, in this video, acupuncture given to a Dachshund dog with back pain, a common problem in Dachshunds.

Chi Institute of Chinese Medicine, Inc. was founded in Reddick, Florida in 1998. It is now the leading veterinary continuing education (C.E.) provider of Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM). The mission of the Chi Institute is to train licensed veterinarians to become cutting edge animal health care providers, capable of practicing veterinary acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine and other TCVM skills.

The Chi Institute believes that the best veterinary health care is the integration of TCVM and conventional veterinary medical care, as unique advantages exist in both systems. Thus, the Chi Institute provides a high quality curriculum that will enable veterinarians to effectively apply the TCVM approach as an integral part of their practice.
Over 2,000 licensed veterinarians have graduated from the Chi Institute. They are now active and competent TCVM practitioners in the USA, Canada, South America, Europe and Japan.
