Acupuncture - East meets West: Integrative Veterinary Medicine Practice
Lorena Lloret, DVM, CTCVMP
The practice of veterinary acupuncture has increased in recent years, especially in the integrative aspect, combined with Western veterinary medicine. The term once called "alternative", now gives way to a much broader, complementary and integrative vision. The research, progress and dissemination of the clinical practice of TCVM, has been possible due to thousands of veterinarians around the world who have integrated it into their practice, as well as the university and postgraduate institutions that have incorporated them into their curriculums and their clinical services. This veterinary discipline is a great option for new generations of veterinarians, as it is the perfect complement to Western veterinary medicine. There is still a long way to go in the area of integrative medicine, but the progress is definitely coming from the cooperation between both medicines, leading to new therapeutic options for success.
