Part 1 of a 2-part talk. In her talk "When the Mark Says WOOf: Pet Psychics and Alternative
Veterinary Practices," Tana Owens discusses two dubious trends making
inroads in the multi-billion dollar U.S. pet industry. First, she discusses
the vagaries of "animal communication" -- including sharing her experience
with an animal communicator after the passing of one of her own pets. Then,
she delves into the world of CAVM (complementary and alternative veterinary
medicine), introducing the audience to available treatments and explaining
the American Veterinary Medical Association's take on the same. As animals
are such an important part of many people's lives, she feels that it is
important to protect them from "woo" as well!
