The World Association of Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (WATCVM) is actively involved in improving the lives of people and pets through promoting Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM). WATCVM does this through a multifaceted approach.
We promote TCVM through education to individuals and academic institutions by providing scholarships and information, supporting TCVM clubs, and training potential instructors in TCVM. WATVCM promotes and sponsors research, provides evolving standards for curriculums in acupuncture, Chinese Herbal Medicine, Tui-na and Food Therapy.
WATCVM also aids people and pets through the direct use of TCVM modalities in local shelters with care donated by TCVM veterinarians and supplies provided by WATCVM in the IVM-GO program.
