Canine Holistic Health & Therapy Diploma Course

The knowledge gained within this course will help to raise your awareness of the different types of therapy available to dogs. The course will enable you to make a thorough assessment of each dog that you care for and encounter then, alongside any veterinary care, work out more natural options to enhance the life of the animal.

Holistic therapy for dogs is a course packed full of knowledge for dog owners and canine professionals alike.


Why do we need to look at holistic health?

Despite the interest in natural health for humans gaining great power the holistic health of our dogs is lagging behind. We are in the middle of a canine ill health epidemic and dog owners often consider the health of their pet exclusively a job for the veterinarian. In reality, providing our dogs with a visit to the vet when required and offering a regular bowl of commercial dog food is not enough. 

This course will explore all of the other, often less-invasive and kinder, dog health options available. We teach the fundamentals of canine holistic health whilst introducing all of the lesser explored natural approaches for dogs, to keep them healthy and happy well into old age.

You will learn how the veterinarian, dog owner and natural therapist can work perfectly together in order to provide the best possible holistic healthcare for the dog.

This is a fantastic study program to add to the Canine Nutrition Training course, which we also provide. Although each of the two is perfect as a standalone course the information given within each of them complements the other perfectly.
