I started treating a small 13 years old little Bichon Frise for idiopathic vestibular disease.
The onset per O was a very loud noise (balloon pop) and since then, they think he cannot hear properly. About a week or 2 after the loud noise episode, they started noticing loss of balance, a head tilt on the left side, decreased appetite (he became very picky!) and he would fall over after shaking or sometimes when walking. This was all in the month of July.
Pulse feels thin, toned but not wiry, felt at the mid-level and deep level
Tongue is lavender/red and dry.
He does have one large lipoma on his left rib cage area.
No other concerns on PE.
After a couple acupuncture treatments, most symptoms improved and he is almost back to his normal self (acting happy!) except for a residual head tilt and having a decreased appetite.
He had a first chiropractic adjustment today and his left atlas was indeed out of alignment.
I started him on TMGTY because I thought it fit the picture the best with a slight Yin deficiency and being older. No hx of allergies or food intolerance and has been on a fresh food diet for the past 3 years.
If the appetite doesn't improve, should I add or switch herbal remedies?
