Complementary Medicine for Veterinary Technicians and Nurses is the first complementary and holistic veterinary medicine reference written specifically for the veterinary health team. Organized by modality, the book provides veterinary technicians and nurses with the resources required to assist the veterinarian in complementary and holistic procedures, as well as educate clients on the increasingly popular treatment options. A wide variety of common and lesser-known modalities are covered, including acupuncture, massage therapy, homotoxicology and holistic nutrition. Each modality also incorporates references to direct readers to additional, reliable information and outlines the role of both the veterinary technician and the veterinarian. Written by an internationally-known and respected holistic veterinarian, this is a must have resource for veterinary technicians and veterinarians looking to increase their knowledge on complementary medicine modalities and expand treatment options available in their practices.
Nancy Scanlan, DVM, MSFP, is a certified veterinary acupuncturist and practices complementary and alternative medicine at Shasta Lake Veterinary Clinic in Shasta Lake, California.
