Nick Thompson (www.holisticvet.co.uk), vet, lecturer, UK raw food campaigner and pioneer is coming to share his up-to-the-minute thoughts on raw food feeding in 2019. As the president of the Raw Feeding Veterinary Society, he's well placed to bring us up to date with the very latest cutting edge ideas.
In his lectures, designed to inform and educate the beginner as much as the veteran raw feeder, Nick aims to engage with everyone to share his enthusiasm for canine health and well-being.
Nick will introduce the concept of raw, with a few new ideas thrown in. He will discuss the use of raw food to help treat skin, behavioural and gut issues. He’ll introduce his famous Thompson Stool Score to help you monitor your dog’s bowels and answer all and any questions you may have on raw feeding.
In addition, in the afternoon, he will give us a tour of the best vaccination protocols for 2019. This is a fast-moving subject, and Nick will give crystal clear guidance on how to maximise protection while minimising unnecessary vaccination. He’ll also talk to us about immunity and immune diseases like Atopy, Atopic Dermatitis and IBS. Auto-immune diseases like Dry Eye, Immune-mediated Thrombocytopenia and other blood diseases and arthritis
Titre testing is a hot topic at the moment. Reducing unnecessary vaccination will be discussed, along with flea, tick and worm protection while avoiding pharmaceutical drugs.
In addition, Nick will explore Arthritis, Stiffness, Osteoarthritis in dogs and will use it as a platform to explain the concept of holistic medicine. Lots to learn on how to help your stiff dog. Lots to learn on how to avoid pharmaceuticals until they cannot be avoided. Something for everyone who owns a dog, young or old.
Nick always provides a thought-provoking and entertaining day. Come along to learn about raw feeding, find out more about this nutrition revolution, vaccination and immune diseases, osteoarthritis and holistic medicine. Come to chat, learn and network with like-minded dog owners.
