Book Review: Complementary and Alternative Veterinary Medicine

By Lori Mikajlo

Complementary and Alternative Veterinary Medicine: Principles and Practice
size> by Allen M. Schoen and Susan G. Wynn; 1997; hard cover; $84.95 is available from Working Dogs Book Store.

ALTHOUGH this text is slated more for the veterinarian with an interest in exploring and/or implementing alternative care within their practice, its a wealth of information for the lay-person seeking detailed descriptions and applications of the various modalities, as well.

Chapters cover fundamentals, nutrition, physical medicine (traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture, chiropractic care, massage therapy, and TTouch as its applied to canine, feline, and equine), energetic medicine (magnetic therapy and photon therapy), botanical medicine (Western herbal, Chinese herbal, and Ayurvedic), homeopathy, Bach flower remedies, aromatherapy, vaccinations, and various holistic practices as applied to exotics, equine, and small animal practice. Such noted individuals as Dr. Susan Wynn, Dr. Allen Schoen, Dr. Wendell Belfield, Dr. Jean Dodds, Dr. Peggy Fleming, and Dr. Cheryl Schwartz, to name but a few, lend their expertise to this comprehensive text.

Included at the end of the text is an extensive resource directory that contains web site address', suppliers, recommended reading, organizations, diagnostic software, and periodicals related to this subject. Again, geared more for the veterinarian, but can certainly be useful to the lay-person.

This is a large text and rather pricey, but certainly worth it for those who are serious about obtaining information on alternative/complementary veterinary care and want a more detailed view than what they may find in other texts. Language is technical at times depending on the chapter, but will still hold the lay-person's interest with its facinating content.
