Please note that these audios were recorded with my colleague and former podcast co-host, Dr. Jeannie - between 2005-2018, as well as other veterinary contributors.
Before we begin I just want to make certain you understand my role and some legal poop. Also a lot of material in this course was used at the former school in Animal Naturopathy of which I was co-founder.
You'll be learning a lot of what we taught our students who were certified in animal naturopathy as practitioners. So just be aware of that when you hear us mention things about the former coursework. The education shared is evergreen material which means it is still valid today and what I still teach to clients.
