  • Learn clinical tips and applications for veterinary acupuncture.
  • Evaluate the fundamental principles of Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM) including Yin-Yang and Five Elements.
  • Apply veterinary acupuncture for pain management.
  • Understand the benefits of Veterinary Medical Spinal Manipulation in horses.
