Selecting whole food supplements is introduced and the course closes with tools to determine a dog’s nutritional status using fur analysis and a body systems questionnaire. Complete both the Introductory course and the Advanced course and you will receive a Certificate in Canine Nutrition.
Testimonial: “As you know I found the course fascinating. Ava was a wonderful instructor, her lectures were clear, focused and organized. What I enjoyed most is that she didn’t “dumb down” the information; meaning she didn’t simplify scientific veterinary concepts but rather stressed the need to learn and understand terms and concepts of veterinary medicine you didn’t necessarily know and she spoke as she does in appropriate veterinary terminology. It adds a great deal of credibility to the course. I found her feedback to be well written, understandable and honest. Personally the lecture on Canine Cancer was my favorite and I am pleased that was added. Finally, I wanted to commend you for your technical assistance along the way. You were always very prompt with your responses and worked diligently to ensure whatever improvements could be make were.” (Michelle Sykes-Tail Waggin the Dog)
