Central Chapter News

On February 9th the Central Chapter hosted an Integrative Medicine Seminar in Westfield,Wisconsin with Dr. Michelle Weidenkopf. We had a great turn out with 18 people attending. Dr. Weidenkopf gave a wonderful presentation on how Western Medicine (regular veterinary medicine) and Holistic Medicine can be used together to take care of some of our horses medical problems. She talked about how important proper hoof balance,dental balance,and proper saddle fit is for our horses healthy body mechanics.She also uses chiropractic and acupuncture as a treatment option in her practice. We can not thank her enough for donating all of the proceeds from this seminar to our Central Chapter.
