While more and more pet parents turn to their veterinarians with questions about nutrition and natural alternatives to pharmaceuticals, they’re often left to find their own answers. In this episode of Your Natural Dog with Angela Ardolino, we’re joined by Dr. Meghan Barrett, an integrative veterinarian from Hawaii, to delve into this crucial topic: what's missing in traditional veterinary education. Together, they explore the gaps in veterinary education, particularly the lack of education on nutrition, the emphasis on treating patients by prescribing pharmaceuticals and prescription diets, and the neglect of individualized and holistic treatment approaches. Additionally, they'll highlight the advantages of natural adaptogens like CBD and mushrooms in pet health, which are overlooked in veterinary schools, yet have become Dr. Barrett’s go-to holistic tools in her own practice.
