Published Research

The American Holistic Veterinary Medical Foundation currently supports research and education in 13 veterinary schools. Research takes time to complete and more time to evaluate and publish. We are starting to see some research published in prestigious journals such as the American Journal of Veterinary Research and the Canadian Veterinary Journal.

The following research studies have been published:
