Veterinary Herbal Apprenticeship and Retreat
Dr. Kris August and I are presenting a 5-part course in Western
Veterinary Herbal Medicine, Veterinary Herbal Apprenticeship and Retreat,
September 14-16, 2018. This course is intended to be an in-depth training in
Western Herbal Medicine geared specifically to veterinarians. Each 3-day
weekend will include multiple Materia Medica lectures, a lab and an herb walk
plus additional lectures and activities. There will be homework consisting of
writing Materia Medica and formulating herbal products between every session.
Self-care is also a large focus of this training. We believe that healthier
veterinarians make better practitioners.
