Raw Feeding Masterclass, Holism & Vaccines

Details

Sponsored by Nutriment, this one-day seminar will host the popular holistic vet Dr. Nick Thompson, BSc (Vet Sci) Hons, BVM&S, VetMFHom, MRCVS, lecturing on several hot topics. Starting with a raw feeding masterclass in the morning, Nick will cover information for beginners and veteran raw feeders alike. He will also discuss supplements and how to support conditions such as IBD, colitis, liver and kidney disease, and how to deal with fussy eaters. There will be an opportunity to ask questions, after which a light lunch will be provided.

The afternoon session will look at why a holistic approach is so beneficial to treating an animal’s overall well-being, before moving on to vaccinations. Nick will explain why ‘re-starting’ vaccines is ‘inconsistent with the principles of immunological memory’ and why blood testing (titre testing) is the future. Again, there will be an opportunity to ask questions during the afternoon.

While we welcome dogs in the shop, please be aware that dogs cannot be brought into this event.

Tickets cost £65. Refreshments and a light lunch are included. Maximum of 25 places. Tickets available in the shop or over the phone on 01296 706403.

Dr Nick Thompson’s practice Holisticvet Ltd. is based in Bath, England. He is a fully trained vet with over 20 years experience, passionate about and trained in homeopathy, acupuncture, natural nutrition and veterinary herbal medicine. He will use both complementary and conventional approaches, assessing the animal as a whole to discover what is wrong and how to resolve the issue.

Raw Feeding & Natural Immunity / Auto Immunity

Details

Nick Thompson, Holistic Vet, lecturer, UK raw food campaigner and pioneer is coming to North Yorkshire and giving a full day seminar at Eggborough Village Hall, near Selby.

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 2018. 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.

There’s something for everyone and Nick always provides a thought-provoking and entertaining show. Come along to learn about raw feeding, find out more about this nutrition revolution, vaccination and immune diseases and network with like-minded dog owners.

Some of the nice things people are saying:


  •  
     
     
    “For anyone involved in the World of pet care that wants to understand more about looking after your pets naturally, yet, sometimes struggle for solid answers from your veterinarian and the university of Google, then we could not recommend Dr Nick Thompson highly enough. Fun informative talks from a refreshingly alternative and naturally healthy point of view. Nick always puts your pets health first.”

    – Piers Smart, Managing Director, Scampers Natural Pet Store

  •  
     
     
    “Well what can I say about the absolutely brilliant day you gave us on Saturday. THANK YOU so very much for coming to Cornwall and imparting your knowledge to a very interested crowd of dog guardians! I take my hat off to you – all that detailed talk – all day on just a few cups of Earl Grey tea. Really fabulous – thank you.

    Emails have come from nearly everyone today saying how much they enjoyed it and how inspired they feel! Thank you so much.”

    – Barbara Storey, Cornwall CHC

  •  
     
     
    “I found it absolutely fascinating and helpful both in terms of my work and in terms of my own dog ownership.”

    – Rachel Waterhouse, Senior Lecturer at Newton Rigg College, Cumbria.

  •  
     
     
    “Having recently attended the Canine Nutrition, Hypothyroidism and Vaccination Seminar presented by Nick Thompson I cannot recommend attending enough – Nick’s approach is relaxed and friendly – the content is informative and easy to digest. As a pet care professional I came home feeling enriched and motivated after the event.”

    – Carrie H

  •  
     
     
    “I just wanted to say a big thank you for such a fantastic and interesting day, your knowledge and the evidence to back everything up was superbly presented, the day went very quickly (this coming from someone who can’t sit down for more than an hour usually). My day has already proved invaluable; I have got three of my clients onto the raw diet already and my parents’ dog is going for thyroid testing due to fur changes, anxiety and seizures, with the vet not really having been able to diagnose anything up until now.”
  •  
     
     
    “The course was very well structured whilst still being flexible to the interests/needs of the delegates – very well delivered. It allayed my major concerns about beginning a raw diet, and gave me the confidence to proceed.”

    – Claire U

  •  
     
     
    “I recently attended one of Nick’s Nutrition Seminars and found the day extremely informative and packed full of common sense advice. As a Behaviourist and Dog Trainer I am always looking to do the best I can for both of my own dogs and those who I offer advice to, so finding a vet with Nick’s experience extolling the virtues on raw feeding and vaccinations following the WSAVA guidelines was a breath of fresh air.”

    – Jill T

  •  
     
     
    “I thoroughly enjoyed the seminar, very thought provoking. I came with an open mind, with no experience of raw food diet having fed a kibble diet to my greyhounds for many years, always apprehensive of booster jabs, the apparent suggested regular application/use of flea/worming treatment. I came away more empowered with the knowledge that perhaps “I’m not such a bad owner”. I feel now more able to make informed decisions as regards my hounds health, veterinary care and nutrition, making small, logical changes to their diet. This is a thoroughly worthwhile event, one that I would hope to repeat.”

    – Sharon M

  •  
     
     
    “This was the second seminar I have attended of Nicks and I love that I am always learning new things! He is a great speaker, entertaining and knowledgable, and has given me the confidence to make up my own raw food and enhance both my dogs well being.”

    – Laura P

  •  
     
     
    “Just wanted to add my own thank you for such a fabulous weekend, feed back has been excellent. It really was a pleasure and I hope you will return.”

    – Wendy Lunn, Owner of Hotdogs Training and Member of APDT.
