Natural Worming Protocols & GUT Health
The damage done to the gut and the metabolism and environment with the routine use of chemical wormers to try to maintain a zero-worm load leaves the animal and the environment less healthy in the long run than one with a healthy gut and a small natural worm load which also allows for a naturally balanced ecology in the GUT. Studies are now revealing the importance of maintaining a healthy microbiota - essential to the health of all organisms.

The compromised Equine Metabolism - a new epidemic?
Over the last 10 years we have seen a rise in complex metabolic and endocrine health issues affecting horses just like we see in human health populations. Metabolilc syndrome, laminitis and complications involving the endocrine system like insulin resistance and Cushing's syndrome are more common place than ever before. In this session I explore possible reasons whey. Using case studies obtained from my own practice as well as recent research in environmental medicine and endocrine disorders conducted for human health. I will also provide detailed advice on how to go about safeguarding your horse from risk.
