Certifications Through Angel's Animals: Holistic Equine Nutrition
When did you decide that you wanted to work with animals? I've known I wanted to work with animals since before I could walk or talk. Horses have been my passion and motivation for as long as I can remember. I did rescue/rehab for 10+ years and currently own two horses and one cat.
What makes your animal nutrition practice stand out? Advisement from Wise Choice Equine Wellness(my business) stands out because I have experience with horses from all walks of life such as athletes, seniors, and metabolic horses. Additionally I work in functional human medicine and through this, have learned many functional therapies that apply to horses and humans alike. This gives me a well rounded and creative perspective on the overall wellness of every horse I get to work with.
What message would you like to share with potential clients? Something I wish to instill in all my clients is that sometimes it's not what to feed but what NOT to feed. Often times, us humans are looking for a quick fix to help our babies thrive. This can lead us to over feeding certain chemicals, minerals and sneakiest of all; sugar.
What message would you like to share with others who are thinking about pursuing a career in animal bodywork? To anyone wishing to pursue a career in animal health I warn: Beware of trends. The latest, greatest feed/ method may not be what's best for the animal. Learn the basics and trust your instincts. This will save owners money, time and stress.
