The Alpha Pack is excited to present a special half day seminar on natural feeding with one of the UK's most well-known holistic vets, Nick Thompson BSc(Hons) Path Sci BVM&S MRCVS VetMFHom.
In 1999 Nick established Holistic Vet Ltd, his own practice, offering homeopathy, acupuncture and nutritional consultancy for dogs, cats and horses.
Nick writes regularly for Horse magazine and Dogs Today magazine. He has lectured on his specialist subjects throughout the UK and for the Faculty of Homeopathy in Portugal. He has a specialist interest in raw food nutrition and in chronic disease in his chosen species, treating with homeopathy, herbs, acupuncture and natural nutrition.
Feeding a natural whole food diet is, at last, returning as the easiest and healthiest way to feed your dog. The raw diet is designed to mimic the dog’s natural ancestral way of feeding. There are many opinions on raw feeding, some of it can be confusing, or even put you off. Only you are in charge of your dog’s health and well being, so it’s down to you, as dog owners, to understand exactly what you’re feeding your dog. This course is designed to give valuable information for anyone involved with dogs; dog owners, dog breeders, veterinary surgeons and students, dog behaviourists and trainers. Come along to gain knowledge and confidence on canine nutrition, and learn how easy it is to feed your dog for maximum lifelong health. Feeding raw can be very easy.
Discover how a natural raw diet can - treat and cure allergies and arthritis and bad breath; reduce stool volume and odour, naturally clean teeth, manage weight control; strengthen the immune system; create a strong lean body, diminished vet bills.
During the seminar you will learn about:
* The nature of food and nutrition
