“A breathtaking and cutting edge volume.... this is a teaching manual, reference manual, research manual, and resource manual. Readers will find a wealth of background information, research results, and references, and if they keep reading, they will also find the products to consider, the dosages, and even the source of those products. Conventional and alternative, yin and yang, Eastern and Western, European and American, herbal and homeopathic, acupuncture and laser, diseases and systems, choices and recommendations—it’s all there.” - Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association

“An in-depth reference recommended for college-level veterinary library holdings and for practicing vets and clients. It covers complementary treatment options from Chinese herbal medicine nad acupuncture to therapeutic nutrition, and takes a systems-based approach to familiarizing vets with terminology and processes of these alternative options. From key diseases to behavior issues and all the common physical problems of animals, a range of detail on key integrative treatment options from experts in herbal medicine, acupuncture and therapeutic nutrition provide an essential, key reference to any studying or working in the veterinary science field.” - Midwest Book Review, November 2008
"There is a dearth of easily found information on alternative therapies and the authors have produced a book that will prove useful to those who require a checklist source of alternative therapies for treating, either primarily or integratively, common clinical problems seen in small animal practice." -Doody's Reviews
Integrating complementary treatment options with traditional veterinary practice is a growing trend in veterinary medicine. Veterinarians and clients alike have an interest in expanding treatment options to include alternative approaches such as Chinese Herbal Medicine, homotoxicology, a treatment system based on biologic and homeopathic principles, and Therapeutic Nutrition along with conventional medicine. Integrating Complementary Medicine into Veterinary Practice introduces and familiarizes veterinarians with the terminology and procedures of these complementary treatment modalities in a traditional clinical format that facilitates the easy integration of these methods into established veterinary practices.
