Demos and Exhibits
The Integrative Medicine booth is organized by student members of the Integrative Medicine Club. The Integrative Medicine Club (formerly the Holistic Club) focuses on learning to treat the entire animal in order to create a state of wellness. By combining all aspects of conventional medicine (antibiotic therapy, surgery, medical therapy, etc.), as well holistic modalities such as acupuncture, chiropractic care, western herbs, eastern herbs, homeopathy, nutraceuticals, homotoxicology and rehabilitation the integrative practitioner has a wide range of tools in their diagnostic toolbox in order to help heal their patients.
Integrative Medicine focuses on starting with modalities that are less invasive, less expensive and potentially have the least amount of side effects. Veterinary practitioners who practice an integrative approach to veterinary medicine have received outside professional training and certification in these areas. Come and learn about this new and exciting field of veterinary medicine by visiting our booth to see acupuncture demonstrations on stuffed animals, play "name that herb," and learn about all the different modalities that integrative veterinary medicine has to offer you and your pet(s).
