Why should I take this course?

  • Are you concerned about your pet's health and well-being?
  • Are you tired of standing by helplessly, while your pet gets sicker and sicker?
  • Are you switching from pet food to pet food only to find your pet's symptoms recurring after a few weeks?
  • Are you tired of feeding your pet the same old processed pet food, without knowing what's in it?

If so, you're not alone. Many pet owners have been in your shoes, feeling frustrated and helpless in the face of their pet's health problems. More and more pet owners are becoming aware of the importance of nutrition in their pet's life, and are seeking out healthier alternatives.
That's where Holistic Nutrition for Pets comes in. This course is designed to teach you everything you need to know about providing your pet with a healthy, balanced diet using whole, fresh foods, supplements and safe nutritional herbs. Our approach is based on the belief that nutrition is the foundation of good health, and that feeding your pet a holistic diet that is rich in nutrients can help prevent disease and promote health.
Unlike many other pet nutrition courses, we do not promote or recommend processed pet foods. Our focus is on whole, fresh foods that are packed with healthy nutrients that your pet needs to thrive. We teach about using the energetics of food as well as supplements and herbs to support your pet's immune system, aid digestion, and promote overall health.

But don't just take our word for it. Here are some of the benefits you can expect from enrolling in Holistic Nutrition for Pets:

  • Practical tips and advice on transitioning pets to a whole food diet.
  • The ability to create healthy, nutritious recipes and meal plans that pets will thrive on.
