The focus of this site is to provide high quality educational materials. The key is to help the horse owner, as well as the veterinary community become more educated in complementary and alternative medical therapies (CAVM). We hope you will learn when and how is best to use CAVM modalities, when to use CAVM yourself, and how to locate veterinarians and others to help you in your path of discovery.
Dr. Harman is certified in acupuncture and chiropractic, and has completed advanced training in veterinary homeopathy, nutrition and herbal medicine. If you are looking for a local practitioner through the links provided, find one who has extensive training in the modality you are interested in.
Our philosophy in a nutshell: The best medicine is whatever works on that day and is the least invasive. Example: for a twisted gut, the least invasive, successful treatment is surgery, however, for most of our chronic problems the least invasive and most successful treatment is CAVM.
