Certified Integrative Animal Caregiver (CIACV) Certification Program – Veterinarian Focus

Multi-modal approach to integrative health care and animal wellness for Veterinarian and Vet Tech professionals

The Royal Animal Health University Certification Course is a multi-modal approach to integrative health care and animal wellness for all students: animal lovers, industry professionals, veterinary technicians and veterinarians. The certification involves both virtual and hands-on learning and provides a certification in integrative animal care through RAHU.

This course is for veterinarian professionals.  If you are not a veterinarian or vet tech and interested in certification please check out the Certified Integrative Animal Caregiver (CIAC) Certification Program  tailored for the Animal Help Professional.


What is different about our integrative healthcare approach and why learn with us?

We have been teaching pet lovers, industry professionals, techs and veterinarians for the last 20 years. Our dynamic educators bring expertise and enthusiasm as they present effective modalities and techniques for integrative health care.



CIAC for all Students: There are 10 core modules and many electives available in the certification course. In completing this certification, students will develop a practical understanding of the natural causes of health for each species and the ability to navigate through the many healthcare options available for animals. This body of knowledge we will create a more educated and proactive healthcare partnership between veterinary caregivers, pet parents and the animal industry. 

CIAC for veterinarians and veterinary technicians offers many hours of CEUs wrapped up in an introduction to integrative veterinary care options for health. This certification is designed to provide a basis for practicing with a holistic and functional approach to health through the RAHU integrative animal health care methods with the inclusion of required internship hours and the addition of the Animal Diet Formulator software first year subscription (.01¢ for the first year, a $598.99 savings! After the first year software renewal continues at $250/year.) We know that health starts with nutrition and the Animal Diet Formulator software is a foundational tool for helping us to do this well in health and in disease.  For more information about the ADF, please visit: www.AnimalDietFormulator.com.
