About The Staff [cached]


Dr. Marvin Cain graduated from Ohio State University where he earned his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine Degree in 1955.
After years of successful practice in his small animal hospital in Ohio he became interested in alternatives to balance bodily functions in addition to the pharmaceuticals that lined his hospital shelves. He was first introduced to acupuncture in 1970 and received his certification in China and continued his studies in Korea and Japan.
In 1975 he co-founded the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society (IVAS). In 1987 the demand for his equine skills became so great he closed his small animal practice.
He has incorporated other modalities of therapy to complement "traditional medicine" into his successful equine practice where his clients have included Kentucky Derby and Breeder's Cup winners.
Dr. Cain is our "alternative medicine advisor".

Ms. Cain's history with acupuncture started over 30 years ago through her father, Dr. Marvin Cain, world renowned veterinarian.

Dr. Marvin Cain was encouraged by a friend in the early 1970's to explore acupuncture. Acupuncture was unknown in North America at that time, but with a great deal of healthy skepticism, Dr. Cain attended a seminar being given by visiting Chinese doctors. His intent was to prove to his friend that acupuncture didn't work. Much to his surprise, he could not debunk it - acupuncture was highly effective! Having learned acupuncture's value, Dr. Cain traveled to the Orient and studied human acupuncture with the Masters there. Dr. Cain then brought it back to the U.S., pioneered veterinary acupuncture, co-founded the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society (IVAS) and started the teaching course that veterinarians take to this day to be certified in acupuncture. In these "early days," the building of IVAS was a family effort, and Dr. Cain's daughter, Ms. Cain, ended up sitting through many of the acupuncture courses that were being taught. Because she was not a veterinarian and there were no laws governing the use of acupuncture on human patients at the time, she was not able to use what she had learned. Once the acupuncture laws were passed in Ohio in 2000, Ms. Cain followed through on a National Board Certification in acupuncture, bringing the benefits of this time-tested therapy to her human patients.
We invite you to schedule an initial visit to begin your acupuncture therapy. If you have questions about what acupuncture may have to offer you, or if you could like to schedule a public presentation by Ms. Cain, please contact Ms. Cain at (513) 373-5021.

Her mentor has been Dr. Marvin Cain, founder of the Equine Acupuncture Society of America, who is credited with identifying acupuncture’s EPM immune points, and has suggested a link between suppression of the immune system and EPM.

“Eighty percent of horses we look at are in some stage of EPM,� she says. “Those who don’t have a strong immune system are in greatest need of a defense against the protozoa.�
Dr. Cain has observed that soreness or lameness expressed in the left hind tends to lead to a diagnosis of EHV-1; signs in the right hind are more likely attributed to EPM.
“We started with Dr. Cain a long time ago,� Gary Young says. “Along with our vet, Dr. Sam Tetterton, we have probably brought more horses back from EPM than just about any stable in the country.
