One of the pioneers in veterinary acupuncture in the U.S., Dr. Schoen was certified in veterinary acupuncture in 1982 and has dedicated the past decade and half of his career to the development of complementary and alternative veterinary medicine. A graduate of the Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine, he also holds a Masters Degree in neurophysiology and behavior.
In addition to his clinical research in and practice of complementary and alternative veterinary medicine (CIAH), he has taught its special therapies throughout the world at conferences and veterinary schools and has lectured in Europe, Scandinavia, Australia, New Zealand, Africa, the U.S., and Canada. The author of "Love, Miracles and Animal Healing", the moving story of his own journey from physical medicine to spiritual understanding, he also edited the text "Problems in Veterinary Medicine Veterinary Acupuncture", " Veterinary Acupuncture: Ancient Art to Modern Medicine", and co-edited "Complementary and Alternative Veterinary Medicine: Principles and Practice".

The guidelines he helped propose for the integration of CIAH into conventional veterinary medicine have recently been accepted by the AVMA.
