This helps the student to avoid boredom and to continue learning what they really like.

Dog & Cat Diseases - The student learns about the most prevalent disorders of companion animal ill health , there causes, methods of diagnosis and how veterinarians treat these conditions and diseases with medications. This course gives the student a basic understanding of the medical side of pet health. It also helps the student to make comparisons between medical and holistic treatments.

Sports Nutrition for Dogs - Never are the basics of good nutrition more important than for the canine athlete. This course starts the student off with a terrific understanding of the nutritional fundamentals required for great health and peak athletic performance. Concepts covered include: digestion, commercial vs. home-made diets, how to interpret dog food labels, analyzing the quality of your dog’s food, understanding energy production; protein, fat, carbohydrate and water needs, vitamins and minerals, breed specific vitamin and mineral disorders, conditioning and performance; and, solutions to common problems like poor performance, poor appetite, diarrhea and weight-loss.

From arthritis, constipation, and, epilepsy; to vitamin D, calcium, maitake mushrooms and gingko biloba. This training is a fantastic learning and reference module that covers over 45 conditions and the therapeutic use of over 170 herbs, supplements and complementary therapies.

Raw Food Feeding for Dogs & Cats - A fantastic course to help you guide the pet owner who wants to feed their pet a “species appropriate diet”. The ultimate “holistic” way to feed animals who are primarily carnivores. Learn about proteins, fats, carbohydrates, water, food quality, vitamins, minerals, fats, food supplements, food preparation, raw food recipes, how to transition an animal to raw food, vegetable and fruit mix recipes, treats and commercial frozen food products.

Drug, Herb & Supplement Interactions - Many of your canine and feline clients will have medical conditions that may require veterinarian prescribed medications. This course provides you with the reference materials needed to help you determine any possible nutrient/drug interactions. This training helps you to detect if a nutrient or herb may interfere with the efficacy of a medication; or, if a nutrient or herb may help a medication do a better job.

Preventing Drug-Caused Nutrient Depletions - Everyone knows that drugs can have potential side-effects; however, drugs can also cause nutrient depletions. Knowing which potential nutrient depletions may be caused by a drug will help the practitioner to avoid nutritional deficiencies that can lead to more health problems later on. Supplying the right nutritional supplementation to your canine or feline client can help make a medication safer and possibly decrease potential side-effects.

Blood Work & Nutritional Interpretations - A nutritionist does not diagnose diseases via blood work or by any other method. We leave that to the veterinarians, who are the medical experts. However, there are often signs in an animal’s blood work results that can point to possible nutritional deficiencies and/or the need for better nutrition. This course teaches you about blood tests and their nutritional interpretation.

CPN Business & Legal Guides - Every nutritionist, for pets or humans, needs to learn the “scope” of what they practice and that there are limitations to every profession that must be adhered to. This course teaches easy to follow guidelines for the proper way to do nutritional counseling; and, how to avoid the practice of medicine. The student will also learn general business concepts that can aid in the development of a thriving pet nutrition counseling practice.

Counseling Practicum C- Once the student has completed all course work, the CPN candidate is required to do a minimum of 10 nutritional counseling sessions (5 dogs and 5 cats). Students will be mentored by their teacher(s) through this process, to insure that proper procedures are followed and to help the student develop holistic health protocols for their clients.

Equine Therapy & Equine Nutrition
In Texas, California, Florida

The importance of equine nutrition while undergoing any kind
of equine therapy cannot be understated.

This hand-in-hand concept has been successful for humans and can benefit trainers and equine therapists in Texas, California, Florida and other states.

Disease or injury is best addressed with equine therapy along with a diet and supplementation program that will contribute the raw materials needed to heal quickly and efficiently.

In Texas, California, and Florida, horse owners know that physical equine therapy is just half of the equation. Nutritional equine therapy is essential to help an injury heal faster.
