Essential oils are a great way to help your dog stay healthy and happy, but it can be hard to know where to start. This course will teach you a safe, effective system that my students and I have used with thousands of dogs in the last twenty years. You will learn the protocols and remedies I use with the dogs that live with me, plus how I control fleas, treat wounds, and keep my dogs bouncing with health from puppyhood to old age.
By the end of the course you will know why aromatics work, how to use them safely in the daily management of animals in your care, and when you should seek help from a professional. We also touch on the importance of an holistic approach to animal welfare.
Before the advance of pharmaceutical medicine, home remedies based on healing plants were the mainstay of veterinary medicine, and everyone had some knowledge of how to use herbs. This course revives the tradition of the natural home pharmacy, putting your dog’s healthcare back in your hands, teaching you how to use natural aromatic extracts for everyday animal care.
