Owners of cats and dogs are increasingly looking beyond conventional treatments for chronic conditions in their pets, and they appreciate the opportunity for their veterinarian to offer them a broader range of options. They are also looking at wellness treatments to prevent illness and increase vitality. Velvet antler fits well into this range. The history of antler as a medicinal substance stretches back thousands of years. New research suggests that therapies based on New Zealand velvet antler can provide a natural, holistic treatment for acute and chronic inflammation including joints, skin, and other body tissues by modulating and balancing the immune system, as well as some normalization of the endocrine system. This book summarizes some of the clinical evidence and benefits to small animals, and can provide a valuable resource to veterinary practitioners. Written by PJ Broadfoot, D.V.M.,co-author of Integrating Complementary Medicine into Veterinary Practice (Wiley Blackwell) and Nina Anderson, S.P.N., author of Super Nutrition for Dogs n Cats (Safe Goods), this book provides clinical evidence of the efficacy of velvet antler in treating alopecia, anemia, wounds, fractures, bone and nerve regeneration as well as cancer, osteoarthritis, and other conditions. Dr. Clinton Balok from the Cedar Animal Medical Center in New Mexico states "As a practicing veterinarian, I m always a little skeptical of overly-optimistic claims and non-traditional remedies, but velvet antler is the real thing. It s at the top of my list when it comes to treating pets with arthritis and joint pain." The nutrigenomic potential of deer velvet products is rather remarkable, and the burgeoning data from past and ongoing research make it a nutrient powerhouse to watch in the future. With its extensive index and bibliography The Efficacy of Velvet Antler in Veterinary Practice will find a home on every small animal hospital s reference shelf.
