Complementary Medicine for Veterinary Technicians and Nurses PDF Book Download
Other books on the subject are written for pet owners. They are good for an introduction to the subject but lack the depth needed to be useful for a technician in a practice. There are a growing number of owners who use natural methods for their pets. If a practice can ’ t answer the questions these owners have, the owners often look for another resource who can. The other resource may be another veterinary practice, a well – meaning but misinformed neighbor, a poorly prepared lay practitioner, or even the Internet.
This book was written to help ﬁll this information gap. It contains a description of the most common treatment modalities, with references supporting their use. It includes lists of commonly used herbs, supplements, and other methods. It also includes a discussion of how to navigate through the pro – and anti-holistic opinions to make an informed decision about whether a treatment method is promising or useful.
This book can also answer questions for any veterinarian who is curious about the ﬁeld but who does not yet need the depth of a textbook on the subject. The reference list in the appendices will help those who want to delve deeper into the subject and who want to ﬁnd veterinarians well – versed in this ﬁeld. There is a discussion of how to judge research in JAVMA, Medline, and other sources to verify beneﬁts of a treatment and how to spot fallacies in reasoning (by both regular practitioners and holistic ones). Finally, there is a list of classes and certiﬁcation courses that veterinarians, and sometimes technicians, can take for training in these subjects.
