Description détaillée : Integrative Medicine in Veterinary Practice

Integrative Medicine in Veterinary Practice is a unique resource designed to introduce the basic concepts of ten different integrative modalities to all members of the hospital team to establish a baseline of knowledge: explaining how patients will benefit from their use, discussing return on investment, informing veterinarians of available courses and suggested reading materials, walking managers through staff training, and providing client education materials. Supplemental web-based documents and presentations increase the ease with which staff are trained and clients are educated.

Integrative medicine is not an all-or-nothing concept. This umbrella term encompasses a wide spectrum of treatment modalities. Therapies can be used individually or in combination, as part of a multimodal approach, and applied easily to every patient or used in select cases.

Sample topics covered in Integrative Medicine in Veterinary Practice include:

Photobiomodulation, covering light, laser specifics, mechanisms of action, supplies and equipment, and techniques

Veterinary Spinal Manipulation Therapy (VSMT), covering pain in veterinary patients, mechanisms of action, adjustment vs. manipulation vs. mobilization, techniques, and post-adjustment recommendations

Western Herbal Medicine (WHM), covering medical botany, WHM diagnoses, herb classification, production, safety, and formulations, and WHM applications

Chinese Food Therapy (CFT), covering commercial diet selection, supplementing commercial diets, recreating an herbal formula, and temporary therapeutic diets

Integrative Medicine in Veterinary Practice is a valuable resource for all veterinary hospital team members, from customer service representatives to veterinary assistants/technicians, practice managers, and veterinarians. The text is also helpful to veterinary students interested in integrative medicine, or those taking introductory integrative medicine courses.
