The American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association (AHVMA) Conference was held in San Diego from October 20, 2017 through October 24,2017. The conference was held at the Town and Country Conference Center and was one of the largest attended for the organization. The event included over 150 exhibitors and 4 separate lecture tracks. As always, there was not enough time to see and learn it all.
In November 2017, the Ozone Therapies Group held the International Ozone Conference in Santa Barbara. Backed by academic research, clinical application, and cases of Ozone therapy, the sold-out event brought together diverse Medical professionals including MD, DO, DC, DDS, and DVM in a “One Medicine Format”.
It is very exciting to see that medical ozone has become part of veterinary medicine. There are now three United States organizations that help promote veterinary medical ozone and representatives from all continents. Brazil has over 800 veterinarians using ozone and have established their own organization, the Brazilian Institute of Ozone and Its Applications (IBO3A). Japan has over 300 veterinarians administering ozone therapy and have their own organization as well.
Dr. Roman attended the First International Symposium of the Institute of Brazilian Veterinary Ozone Therapy in Campinas, Brazil, August 25-27, 2017. Brazil has almost 800 veterinarians embracing Ozone Therapy for their animal patients. They are treating medical conditions thought to be only euthanasia cases, or requiring extensive surgery and medical care.
It was amazing to see the case presentations of paralyzed dogs, severe wounds and even cancer getting help from Medical Ozone Therapy. Lecturers from North Central and South Americas attended, as well as presenters of 15 posters of research.
On June 2, 2017, Dr. Roman spoke at the conference of the Association Espana Professional Medical in Ozonotherapy (“AEPROMO”) in Madrid Spain. The topic at the 5th International Congress was “Better Ozone Therapy with Training, Investigation and Publications.” There were more than 15 countries represented at the conference, in many languages, with research papers and presentations on Ozone Therapy.

In June 2015, John noticed an increase in the stiffness and lameness in Annie’s right shoulder. It had been going on for a few months, but now she had had become a “tripod”. She wouldn’t put weight on her leg and stopped walking around the house. Annie was 9 at the time and, though John was not surprised that she was encountering geriatric issues, this was extreme. He decided to bring Annie to his local veterinarian who took x-rays. The findings were completely unexpected.

Winter is the Yin Season
In Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine, the yin is the energy of cold, dark, quiet. This matches the winter season where the light is shortest, the temperatures are lower and, for the most part, our activities are driven inside our homes.
