Quality Research vs. Poor Research: Thorne Vet Is Your Filter
Unfortunately, in our industry much of the information and research on integrative
medicine presented by individuals and companies is of poor quality. Before
we present any knowledge or research to you, our scientists and
veterinarians review the original sources for accuracy and authenticity.
This ensures that you will only receive up-to-date and
scientifically precise information. At Thorne Vet, you can trust
How Thorne Vet Helps You Stay Up to Date
Thorne Vet helps you stay current in many important ways, such as our “Knowledge
Minute,” access to various web research sites, a Diagnostics Link with
immediate access to therapeutic products categorized by disorder, a link to the
well-respected Veterinarians' Desk Reference of Natural Medicines, listings of
important periodicals, and access to continually updated lists of conferences, seminars
and CE courses. And to support your knowledge, on our Thorne Vet product
pages each product has numerous research references
that you can click on to learn more about the research behind specific ingredients.
Your “Knowledge Minute”
One of the most important ways Thorne Vet keeps you current
is with our state-of-the-art “Knowledge Minute.” When
you sign up for the “Knowledge Minute,” each month you will
receive in your email inbox the most relevant scientific advances in integrative
veterinary medicine. We package these monthly knowledge
bytes using print and video, in a manner that allows
you to effectively assimilate this valuable information
as quickly as possible.
To help you get what you want as fast as possible from your “Knowledge Minute,” Thorne Vet separates data into two formats. When you are pressed for time and need knowledge in a fast concise summary, we provide you with what we call:
"The Short Story"
When you have more time and want to dive deeper into the research we also
provide you with:
"The Whole Story "
which gives you a much more detailed look
at the research. So just choose the learning path that works best for you at that moment.
Instant Anytime Access To "Knowledge Minutes"
Your Thorne Vet “Knowledge Minutes” will be stored on the Thorne Vet website so that at any time you can come back to the site and spend more time with
the research that interests you most. Thorne's "Knowledge Minutes" will be archived starting in April.

Enhancing Learning: Linking Product Pages to Research
You will notice that each Thorne Vet product has numerous research references
associated with it to enable you to learn more about specific ingredients in each
formula. We purposefully link this product search
and research information together.
Why do we link the product information and research?
Because Thorne Vet wants to use every
advantage we can from "memory neuroscience"
to help you assimilate more knowledge faster so
that you can heal more animals more effectively.
In memory neuroscience, the Hebbian Learning
Rule is considered the base mechanism of associative
learning and synaptic plasticity (memory).
Research shows that, when you learn information associated with a
product or service, that specific information has a much greater chance of being
retained in your long-term memory; that is, a better chance of being
remembered than if you tried to learn the same information in isolation with no
Let's say you are considering using a joint health formula for an animal and,
as an example, you are contemplating a product like Thorne Vet's CurcuVET®.
If you look at the research at the same time you are considering the formula,
the Hebbian Learning Rule has a better chance of being activated. As
a result, that specific information has a greater chance of moving from your
working memory into your long-term memory and you will have a greater
chance of being able to recall the information when needed.
Now please understand that, just because you have linked information does
not guarantee you will remember it. The neurogenetics of learning is a
much more complex process than that. But you can be assured that, in all we
do at Thorne Vet, we will be blending information with the latest advances in
the neurogenetics of learning to give you every advantage to gain more knowledge,
faster and easier.

Veterinarians' Desk Reference of Natural Medicines
In response to the growing demand by the veterinary community
for information on nutraceuticals, the doctors at The
Veterinary Institute of Integrative Medicine have produced the
Veterinarians' Desk Reference of Natural Medicines (VDR).
The VDR provides veterinarians with a comprehensive manual
on using animal health products. The veterinarians at the
Veterinary Institute of Integrative Medicine have generously
provided a link to this valuable information for use by visitors to the Thorne Vet
web site. Click
to the online VDR.
Research Links: Web Pages
To save you time to spend on healing your animals,
we at Thorne Vet have taken steps to
identify the best of the integrative medicine web
pages and research links to keep you current
on relevant, cutting edge Veterinary studies and

This quick reference of the therapeutic product index of the VDR is categorized by disorder,
