Complete and Holistic Care:
The Owner's Veterinary Guide to Alternative Methods and Remedies

Mary L. Brennan, DVM with Norma Eckroate

The most comprehensive and up-to-date manual to alternative horse care ever published for the horse owner! Horse owners are turning to alternative medicine in ever-increasing numbers as the effectiveness of holistic treatments such as acupuncture, homeopathy, chiropractic, and herbalism is proven. These natural approaches are quickly becoming standard for show, race, and pleasure horses because owners and trainers have found that they work! In addition, technologies utilizing lasers, bio-magnetics, and new methods of physical therapy are in common use as complements to standard modern veterinary practices. This practical manual covers the following alternative therapies and treatments: acupuncture/ acupressure, homeopathy, herbalism, Bach flower remedies, magnetic therapy, chiropractic, aromatherapy, massage and lasers.
It also covers everyday management issues from a holistic point of view, including diet, stabling, grooming, equipment, exercising, nursing, and the aging horse. A detailed guide to common health problems complete with suggested alternative treatments completes the reference.
