There is a dramatic paradigm shift occurring in the animal health care world. This new paradigm, which is called Integrative Medicine, takes a more holistic approach to the treatment of animal disorders than the present traditional medical model which focuses mainly on pharmacological solutions.

 

The Veterinary Institute of Integrative Medicine (VIIM) was formed to bring integrative medicine to the forefront of animal healing. It was established by a group of leading veterinary doctors who were concerned that veterinarians and animal owners were not fully aware of the benefits of integrative approaches to healing animals. The mission of the Institute is to create resources to help educate veterinarians and dog, cat & horse owners about holistic veterinary medicine.

Who This Site is For

The Veterinary Institute has developed this web site so that veterinarians and animal owners alike will have a comprehensive source of scientific-based knowledge from which to draw upon to help our animals live longer; healthier and happier lives. Unfortunately, in the animal health world much of the information and research on integrative medicine you find on the web is of poor quality. Our goal at the Institute is to help more animals heal by providing the most trusted, up to date and easy to understand scientific knowledge available anywhere.

To The Veterinarians’ Desk Reference

In response to the growing demand by the veterinary community for information on nutraceuticals and natural medicine, the veterinarians at the Veterinary Institute of Integrative Medicine (VIIM) have produced the Veterinarians' Desk Reference of Integrative Medicines (VDR). The VDR provides veterinarians with a comprehensive manual on using animal health products. While animal owners may refer to the Veterinary Desk Reference, we make it available only so that consumers may have more informed interactions with their veterinarian. We urge consumers to make no medical decisions without a consultation with their veterinarian.
