NEW!!! ONLINE Version! (Read more below)
Have you ever wondered if there are alternatives for chronic prescription medications, chemical flea and tick control, heartworm prevention, and more? Well, the answer is YES!! Essential Oils can provide many of the answers to natural pet care. The Animals & Oils Intensive Training Course is the ideal way to learn methods recommended and tested by a Veterinarian.
What You Will Learn:
Day One/Module One: Covers the basics of using Young Living Essential Oils and Supplements in animals, why certain animals are more sensitive to oils than other animals or humans, and common views regarding the toxicity of oils in the veterinary community. Common "hidden" toxins used in homes every day, what they mean for our animals, and how natural products can replace them. Why poor quality essential oils can cause toxicity issues in animals, where they are found, and what it may mean to our pets. Veterinary case studies complete with laboratory data will be presented, helping to document the safety and efficacy of truly medical grade essential oils - especially in cats. Why animals should be exposed to essential oils every day, and the easiest ways to achieve this. Learn the individual properties of favorite animal oils and the different methods of application - oral, topical, diffusion, misting, and so much more! You will also see video clips demonstrating the different methods and techniques of oil application on live animals (some in-person classes will have live demonstrations - check schedule for availability). Then - get ready for an extensive discussion of individual conditions - covering every animal from fish to rabbits, snakes to birds, and cats to dogs. From hot spots to urinary incontinence - you will learn recommended oils, how to use the oils, recommended supplements, and how to evaluate responses.
Day Two/Module Two: Continues with conditions of dogs, goats, sheep, llamas, horses, cows, and more - and then we will head into emotional work with animals. Don't worry if you don't work with every form of animal - the information can be shared across species! This class will help to stress the individual properties of oils - so you can apply them to every case - whether Cat, Rat, Horse or Human. You will learn even more about starting points, methods of application, and evaluating responses. Video demonstrations will also be shown in this class. In depth discussion of Raindrop Technique in horses, as well as the current theory of why some horses "welt" with oil application, along with recommendations of "what to do next". Case studies will be presented. Then, everyone's favorite, emotional work with animals. Learn how to help rescue animals deal with their emotional trauma and baggage, help introduce new animals to each other, work with anxiety, protect pets from "toxic" owner energy, and so much more! After this class, you should feel comfortable with oil selections, starting points of use, evaluation of response, and modification of application. This class builds on the information presented in Day One - so it cannot be taken by itself.
Day Three/Module Three: Finishes common conditions and emotional work with animals. Also during this class, oil benefits and recommendations for Animal Professionals will be discussed; Boarding, Grooming, Veterinary Practices, Organic Farms, Acupuncture, Chiropractic, Massage, Reiki, Animal Communication and more! Learn about using oils with homeopathy, prescription medications, herbs, and other natural therapies. Case studies will be "worked up", and you will be guided to formulate your very own regimens. In Live Classes, you will get full feedback on the regimens YOU create, with real life scenarios and roll play. Feel the triumph of working through a difficult case. You will be instructed on how to explore a condition - listing symptoms, causes, and oil options. You will leave feeling even more comfortable with formulating and starting a regimen, monitoring responses, and modifying your course of action. Learn about the latest cutting edge ways that essential oils are being used in the Veterinary Hospital including; Neuro-Auricular Technique, Auricular Adjustment, Roll-On Applications and Techniques, Injections, Intravenous use of Oils, and more! The advanced day is a wonderful open format - where all of your questions can be answered. This class can only be taken if Day 1 & 2 have been completed.

As this course is taught by a licensed professional, and a certificate of attendance will be provided to attendees, it is likely that class hours will qualify toward your individual educational requirements.
