At Curacore, we have a passion to teach veterinary healthcare practitioners how they can use integrative medicine effectively to give animals in their care optimal solutions for pain as well as other ailments. Obviously, medical treatments such as medication and surgery have a necessary place in veterinary care today. And yet, vets are becoming bored and want to offer more options than just drugs and surgery. They’re realizing that in many cases when those common solutions have been exhausted, euthanasia is often viewed as the only other option. That’s why more and more veterinary medical providers are seeking out information on integrative medicine to be used in their practices.
We’re convinced that science-based integrative treatments should become a primary option rather than serving only as a last resort when modern treatments have failed. CuraCore’s method of veterinary medical education is completely science-based. Our courses explore the depths of why, how, and when veterinary practitioners should employ integrative medicine. Each treatment we’ve included in our courses has been thoroughly and critically examined. Our passion is to provide animals with medical treatments that are not only effective, but are also safe. If you’re on the same page, our educational course options might be just what you need to become a better veterinary practitioner.
