 Medicinal Mushrooms in Veterinary Practice: mechanisms, research and practical applications. 

Every dog magazine says don’t feed dogs mushrooms! Mushrooms are a huge kingdom and yes amanita mushrooms should be off the edible list, but what about medicinal mushrooms?  Join Dr Barbara Fougere in an exploration of seven fungi and their practical application in practice, their actions, indications and safety. Discover fungi that enhance senior pet wellbeing; that support cancer and that support patients with renal and liver disease. And if you studied microbiology…you know the principles already so we will review easy cultivation of mushrooms to grow your own.



 Once you’ve registered, please send any questions you may have for Dr. Fougere about Medicinal Mushrooms via email to communicationscoordinator@vbma.org. Dr. Fougere will answer submitted questions during the webinar presentation.
