Cat Lane, Dip. CFN, Chartered Herbalist
Since 2002 I have worked with close to five thousand cases, averaging around 300 full service cases per year., an intensive diet and herbal consultation that involves the development of several recipes and herbal protocols with online support during transition, and follow up to ensure the protocols are successful. In addition I do online and in-person herbal consults of a more straightforward nature, which do not involve as much time as the intensive option, on average another 3-400 per year. This includes proactive diets for healthy adult dogs; growth and senior diets; specialized dietary care for conditions including but not limited to cancer, allergy, IBD, liver disease, kidney disease, uroliths (oxalate, urate and struvite stones) osteo-arthritis, various forms of heart disease, Cushing’s disease, Addison’s disease, diabetes, pancreatitis and obesity, as well as specialized diets for performance dogs.

What I am aiming to provide in this “Super Tutorial” is a comprehensive overview of how herbs and diet work together, to prevent and manage a wide variety of canine health conditions. As with all my courses, we will evaluate both the science and the popular trends impartially. I draw on both formal training, decades of study and professional experience, to provide the most wide ranging and objective information, so you can be empowered to make the best decisions for your dogs.
