What is the AHVMF and how could it impact your Pet’s health?

AHVMF stands for “American Holistic Veterinary Medical Foundation”.

This foundation Supports Education, Research, and Scholarships in Integrative Holistic Veterinary Medicine.

The Foundation was established to receive and administer funds for research and education in all aspects of integrative medicine, especially as it pertains to that part which is called holistic, alternative, or complementary veterinary medicine, or CAVM. The Foundation concentrates on 3 aspects: scholarships for veterinary students who are interested in this branch of veterinary medicine, research in this aspect of veterinary medicine, and support for the use of and education in this branch in veterinary schools.

The Foundation was established to

  • support students interested in holistic veterinary medicine
  • support research in holistic veterinary medicine
  • acquaint the public with items that impact holistic veterinary medicine
  • support those who want to contribute

The Foundation is a 501(c) 3 non-profit foundation

Why is this foundation important to you? Because it concerns the health & well being of your pet's health.

Perhaps you have a challenge at the present time, perhaps have already experienced a challenge and won the battle or the need may unfold in your future to be ready for one.

Just like human health options, this foundation does the work to seize the opportunities of what alternative health can do for the animals.

If you have ever experienced a time in your own life that was realted to your health, I am sure that you began seeking knowledge in various arenas to find a resolve.

Perhaps you reached out to a chiropractor, acupuncturist, naturopath, massage therapist, nutritional consultant, herbalist etc. This is considered “alternative”.

Well this is the same concept with all the opportunities, but for the “furry ones”

The foundation opens the doors for your pet’s to have options that have been tested and proven that could have a significant impact to their health and well being. We all want that option.

This form of medicine has saved the lives of not only my own personal animals, but I have witnessed countless miracles since my work in this arena.

Inspiring stories about (animal) patients who have been helped by Integrative Medicine are available on their site. I encourage you to take a moment and read some of them. It will show you not only how important this work is, but it might just shed some light on your own animal’s current challenges or ones that may come.

Alternative Medicine gives more quality to a life and many times a happy ending.

They need our help to continue their work.
