Mosby, 2003 - 740 páginas
This practical guide synthesizes the types of treatment available for specific diseases. It is a handy reference that provides readers with an understanding of complementary and alternative treatment options for more than 130 common disease states and describes a variety of possible approaches to small animal disorders. Concentrating on nutrition, herbs, traditional Chinese medicines, and physical therapies, the authors present both tradition- and evidence-based therapies for disorders not always responsive to conventional therapies.
  • Presents new and alternative therapies with scientific support, encouraging veterinarians explore new therapies with confidence.
  • Helps veterinarians develop treatment plans - a vast improvement over large texts that simply introduce the therapies.
  • Clearly explains esoteric concepts of traditional Chinese medicine in updated language.
  • Practical, user-friendly pocket manual format allows for quick access in the clinical setting.
  • Chapters are organized logically by body system and disorders are alphabetized within each chapter.
  • Each body system chapter includes a case report that describes the history, physical examination, assessment, treatment, and outcome of a specific patient to further illustrate how to develop a treatment plan.
  • Each appendix offers practical backup for designing treatment plans, from homemade diets and Chinese food therapy to oral herb doses and a valuable herb cross-reference table.
