Discussion of TCVM Treatment IVDD type I is a progressive disease characterized by degeneration of the annulus fibrosus as outer layer and mineralization of nucleus pulposus as the inner layer of affected discs. The outer layer eventually ruptures acutely, letting the inner layer press against the spinal cord, result in pressure, inflammation and nerve destruction. The mechanism of disc degeneration is thought to be caused by the inability of the nucleus pulposus to maintain a fluid pressure in the disk and the consequent loss of ability to resist external loads placed on the disc. As the disc degenerates, it loses its compressive abilities, placing strain on the annulus fibrosus. This strain causes disruption of the lamellae and eventually nuclear material to erupt dorsally through the annulus fibrosus and impacts the spinal cord. Some IVDD cases could progress to Myelomalacia, a condition which the nerve tissue of the spinal cord begins to die. The most common way it occurs is from a result of hemorrhaging or inadequate blood supply to the spinal cord, making it weak and susceptible to damage. Dogs with myelomalacia that have no deep pain perception and neurologic signs may progress cranial and caudal to the original injury. Myelomalacia will be accompanied by fever and very painful on palpation to the rupture areas. Max was diagnosed Kidney Yin deficiency leading to thoracolumbar bi syndromes with Qi and Blood Stagnation. Kidney Yin deficiency manifesting with severe empty fire with steaming sensation from the bone. Purple tongue, rapid and forceful pulse, acute pain and stiffness on thoracolumbar region were belonged to blood stagnation, but Liver Qi stagnation was the underlying problem, which could be seen

6 from the condition of sensitivity to the loud noises of people or thunder. It was a stressful emotion. If Qi stagnated, Blood stagnation followed. In Chinese Medicine point of view, Qi is the commander of Blood; Blood is the mother of Qi. Conclusion Max responded to acupuncture treatment very well, Max healed very quick and being a completely normal playful dog after one month acupuncture treatment combined with herbal medicine. However, Max disease progressed to a more severe stage that led to his death. Reference 1. Cheng, H. TCVM Treatment of Neurologic Disease. Taiwan. 2014: Kerttula L.
