Complementary Medicine: American Veterinary Medical Association House of Delegates to Consider Discouraging Homeopathy for Animals; Holistic Organizations Respond

Complementary Medicine: American Veterinary Medical Association House of Delegates to Consider Discouraging Homeopathy for Animals; Holistic Organizations Respond | The Jurga Report: Horse Health, Welfare, and Care | Scoop.it

When the American Veterinary Medical Assocation (AVMA) House of Delegates meets tomorrow for its regular winter session, the agenda includes a proposal to review the existing AVMA Guidelines for Complementary and Alternative Medicine in regard to the practice of homeopathy. And to discourage and discredit the practice.


@FranJurga writes: The Jurga Report gives summaries of documents posted by the AVMA as well as responses from the American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association (AHVMA) and Academy of Veterinary Homeopathy.

AVMA and AAEP urge strong enforcement of Horse Protection Act at Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration | The Jurga Report, Practical Horseman Blog

AVMA and AAEP urge strong enforcement of Horse Protection Act at Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration | The Jurga Report, Practical Horseman Blog | The Jurga Report: Horse Health, Welfare, and Care | Scoop.it

The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) and the American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP) urge veterinarians, owners, trainers, riders, event spectators, media and the public to redouble their efforts to identify and report sored horses at this year’s Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration in Shelbyville, Tenn. This includes reporting suspected soring activity in barns and training facilities in the Shelbyville area.


The AVMA and AAEP are urging vigilance because of concerns that sored horses will be participating at the Celebration.


For more than 40 years, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has worked diligently to enforce the Horse Protection Act (HPA), which prohibits soring. The USDA recently took another step toward ending soring by instituting mandatory penalties for violators.
