Integrative Veterinary Medicine
Practical guide integrating holistic modalities into Western veterinary practice to help with patient treatment
Integrative Veterinary Medicine provides a clinically oriented, evidence-based guide to integrating complementary and conventional therapies into veterinary practice. Covering acupuncture, manual therapies, botanical and herbal medicine, integrative nutrition, and physical rehabilitation, the book draws information on these modalities together into a single resource. Rooted in evidence-based medicine, it demonstrates how to use these modalities in veterinary practice.
The book begins by discussing the basic concepts of integrative veterinary medicine, then examines each modality in detail. A companion website offers video clips showing acupuncture techniques.
In Integrative Veterinary Medicine, readers can expect to find detailed information on topics such as:
• Anatomy and physiology of acupuncture with relation to soft tissue and neurologic concepts, and traditional Chinese theory of acupuncture (Yin and Yang, Five Element Theory, and The Meridians)
• Veterinary manipulative therapy (neurology, biomechanics, and available evidence), and massage therapy and myofascial principles
• Origins and major systems of herbal therapy with selected evidence-based interventions and adverse events, herb-drug interactions, supplement evaluation, and regulation
• Trends in nutrition, such as raw diets, home-prepared diets, grain-free diets, owner perception, and current marketing

Covering common modalities across all species in one volume, Integrative Veterinary Medicine is an essential reference for any veterinary practitioner wishing to use integrative techniques in their practices, as well as veterinary students, academics, and researchers involved in programs of study related to integrative veterinary medicine.
