Dr. Alice was granted her doctorate in veterinary medicine from UCD with highest honors, being first in her class, and was awarded the School of Veterinary medicine medal.
Sticking horses with western meedles is good medicine, but being able to also stick them with eastern needles makes medicine even better. So Dr. Alice became certified in veterinary acupuncture by the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society.
With all those needles, a stethoscope, x-ray machines, floats, hoof testers, and bottle of pills, tablets and capsules, when Dr. Alice arrives in the pasture, horses get better, and in this book, she explains how and why.
