His clinical interests include all types of urinary tract disease in horses, and his research focuses on fluid and electrolyte physiology, especially with prolonged endurance exercise. Dr. Schott’s name is synonymous with electrolyte education in the endurance world. He has performed numerous studies and supported out sport for many years.
Dr. Joyce Harman, DVM, MRCVS – Many ECTRA members are familiar with Dr. Harman who participated in and supported ECTRA for many years. Dr. Harman graduated from Virginia Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine in 1984 with an interest in acupuncture and alternative medicine. Dr. Harman became a Certified Veterinary Acupuncturist in 1990. She decided to open her own practice and do just acupuncture, so she moved to Virginia in 1990 and opened Harmany Equine Clinic. In 1994 she became a Certified Veterinary Chiropractor and also completed an advanced homeopathic course for veterinarians. Along the way she has taken many other courses in holistic medicine for animals. Dr. Harman is well known as an expert on tick borne diseases, she regularly consults with veterinarians and owners across the country for treatment protocols. She has “written the book” on saddle fitting, with two volumes, The Horse’s Pain Free Back and Saddle Fit Book for western and English horses. She also has a booklet to help introduce people to homeopathy for horses, The First Aid Guide to Homeopathy for Horses. Her goal is to help educate the equine industry about natural, holistic and integrative medicine.
