Integrative Medicine
Medicina Veterinária Integrativa

The concept of MI is recent and has been used in several countries and institutions of veterinary education of excellence as is the case of the University of Cornell in the United States (world reference) for the work developed in Departments that resort to innovative techniques and therapeutics with the goal of improving clinical outcome.

These techniques were long considered Alternative but are currently Complementary and hence the terms Integrative. The so-called Conventional medicine is practiced with the added value of associating other techniques, whenever necessary.
