Complementary Medicine for Veterinary Technicians and Nurses p>Timely update of a practical reference book in complementary medicine with expansion of bibliographies, nutrition and diet, treatments, and therapies

Complementary Medicine for Veterinary Technicians and Nurses provides a broad overview of complementary veterinary medicine in general, designed as a reference book covering the most commonly used complementary modalities, with an explanation of each modality and its historical background, procedure guidelines, and usefulness, along with practical tips. A range of both common and lesser-known modalities are covered, including physical therapy, holistic nutrition, acupuncture, chiropractic, Chinese, Western, and Ayurvedic herbal medicine, homeopathy, aromatherapy, and grief counseling.

The text enables readers to assist with procedures associated with holistic medicine and knowledgeably discuss treatment options with clients. Outlining the respective roles of technicians and veterinarians throughout, Complementary Medicine for Veterinary Technicians and Nurses provides thorough coverage of integrative veterinary medicine in a user-friendly, digestible format. The book provides clinically-relevant patient history and release forms, a glossary of terms, quick reference charts, and contact information for additional resources and training.

Written by a highly qualified author with significant experience in the field, Complementary Medicine for Veterinary Technicians and Nurses covers sample topics such as:
* TCM theory, chiropractic medicine, veterinary orthopedic manipulation (VOM), osteopathy, homeopathy, aromatherapy, and veterinary NAET
* Homotoxicology, applied kinesiology (AK), bach flower therapy, glandulars, cold laser therapy, magnetic therapy, ozone therapy, and prolotherapy
