About Integrative Veterinary Medicine

Integrative Veterinary Medicine: This is a phrase that many of us have heard. What does it mean for you and your horse?
Simply put: Integrative Medicine is the combining of many different modalities to provide better care for patients. In the field of Veterinary

Medicine, this includes such modalities as:

  • Acupuncture
  • Spinal Manipulation (Chiropractic),
  • Laser Therapy
  • Chinese and Western Herbal therapies
  • Rehabilitation
  • Food as medicine
  • Natural hoof care

My intention for this blog is to introduce these modalities and show how we use them at Windhorse Veterinary Clinic. I will present cases that we have treated here.

Every day, I get to use these modalities and every day I am amazed at how well they work. The horses that people have given up on, that can go back to work. I say WOW and COOL on an hourly basis! Learning and practicing these modalities has made me a much better veterinarian. I want to share these stories with you!

I will also have many posts that cover regular veterinary medical concerns.
