While whole medicine is probably undergoing a great change, with a general higher demand for individualized attention and care and integration of knowledge, veterinary medicine is also living a cultural change. Careful owners, almost parents of their dog and cat, have similar demands. For an integrated care, the knowledge of the Pnei principles is fundamental also in veterinary medicine: stress (especially chronic) reduction techniques, epigenetic, correct nutrition and rationalization of the use of drugs are some of the key points. A well-structured team work with the contribution of professionals capable of decoding animal mind is a new path that has just begun in veterinary medicine, but whose potential for applications would be of real benefit to four paws patients.
