The ABVA have developed a hybrid Foundation Course featuring a combination of online materials and in-person teaching.  The face-to-face teaching will take place over three days  at Canine Partners, Loughborough.


The ABVA Foundation Course is primarily a practical one for veterinary surgeons who are new
to acupuncture or those who wish to refresh their knowledge. The information we give you
stands firmly on a Western clinical diagnosis and an understanding of acupuncture’s
neurophysiological mechanisms; but to broaden your experience we would like to introduce you to some of the historical and traditional concepts from which this ancient form of medicine
evolved. This is just the beginning of this fascinating subject.
