True integration of conventional (Western) veterinary medicine and Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM) requires the ability to treat these two seemingly disparate conceptual entities as two interrelated and synergistic parts of an indivisible whole. From pathophysiology to treatment, conventional veterinary and TCVM principles are typically mutually translatable. This course covers key aspects of diagnosing and treating small animal neurologic disorders from this inclusive integrative standpoint. As such, this course provides a complete and clinically relevant overview of localizing lesions, generating differential diagnosis lists, creating targeted diagnostic plans and devising effective treatment protocols-all from the standpoint of combining conventional veterinary medicine and TCVM at each step. At the end of the course, the practitioner will feel confident in diagnosing and developing treatment strategies for the most common neurologic disorders encountered in small animal practice.
This class will be ideal for anyone who wishes to feel comfortable diagnosing and treating small animal neurology patients from both western and eastern standpoints. This course will both simplify small animal neurology and offer insights into integrative diagnosis and treatment.
