Veterinary Highlights: AHVMA Independent Research Foundation

"There isn't any money in the cure, the money is in the medicine"
—Chris Rock

The AHVMA (American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association) Foundation has been around for quite some time, but it is now steering in a new direction. The foundation will now support independent research into alternative veterinary medicine.

The main criticism of alternative veterinary treatments is the lack of scientific evidence. “Show me a study,” is a common response.

Lack of research means lack of conventional veterinarians willing to explore alternative therapies

Does the lack of scientific evidence mean that alternative medicine doesn't work? Or does it just prove that nobody's put the money in the research?

There can be no study where there is no money.

That is what the AHVMA Research Foundation wants to change.

Most of the research done in veterinary medicine is funded by government agencies, large corporations and pharmaceutical companies that have a stake in the results.

Who is really going to fund a research into benefits of something that nobody can patent and package?

I am very excited to see what this research brings.
