35 Hartlebury Road
Stourport on Severn
Acupuncture and raw food diets can be important components of modern integrated veterinary care. This course will give you an overview of how they can be used in regular small animal practice. The first part of the day will focus on acupuncture. We will discuss the underpinning neurophysiology and the principles of point selection. A qualified VN can perform acupuncture as a Schedule 3 procedure under the direction of an MRCVS in the practice.
It can be used by VNs as part of pre and post surgery nursing programmes, for geriatric patients and in pain management or physical rehabilitation plans. The second part of the day will focus on natural feeding and raw food diets. We will discuss the principles, the evidence, the benefits and the potential pitfalls. Raw food diets can be used to support treatments for a variety of chronic health issues.
