    Cancer in Dogs - What is to be Cured?  

with Sue Armstrong MA VetMB VETMFHom CertIAVH MRCVS RSHom

Time: 10am - 4pm

Cost: £65 per person including lunch

 Location: Lumb Baptist Church Lounge, Burnley Road East, Rossendale, Lancs. BB4 9PL

Cancer is a disease that nobody ever wants their dogs to be diagnosed with. However, there seem to be more and more dogs now developing various forms of cancer and then comes the ordeal of making decisions as to appropriate treatment or palliative care and the endless questions asked during the making of these decisions, which often don't seem to have a definitive answer.

Are there any effective treatments? Is it fair to use these treatments on our animals? Do natural or complementary therapies work? Can cancer be cured?!

For over 30 years Sue has been treating veterinary cancer patients that could not tolerate chemo- or radiotherapy, or whose owners refused or could not afford to treat with these methods.

This has given her a valuable insight into a methodology for treating cancer and the disease process itself. She will speak about how cancer arises, its genetic origins and the role of inflammatory processes and oxygen. She will also discuss the stages of cancer and how altering the diet and using homeopathy targeted at individual cases can be successful. 

 

Dr Sue Armstrong MA VetMB VETMFHom CertIAVH MRCVS RSHom is a veterinary surgeon and homeopath. She runs Balanced Being, which is a thriving Veterinary Centre in Wetherby with homeopathy as the core philosophy and offering fully integrative health care to suit individual needs of the animals and owners. This tailor made approach is achieved by combining  conventional medicine and surgery with homeopathy, acupuncture, nutraceuticals and physical therapy. The emphasis is on prevention and guiding owners through the best options available for an individual animal and their owner. These are decisions which are critical to the long term health of your animal and vary from one animal to the next.

Sue is also the author of many published papers and lectures and consults internationally. Her latest book is entitled 'Cancer in Animals. What is to be cured?'

Come and learn how to support your dog's wellness and behaviour to create a harmonious hound. You will also learn a lot about yourself too. 

The workshop will cover an introduction to the following topics:
~ The different causes of wellness
~ How to view your dog as a celllular animal and animal energetics
~ Identity and personality and how to recognise these
~ Canine emotions  
~ Group composition, interaction and co-existence
~ Diet
~ Canine stress
~ Natural communication
~ Teaching your dog to be successful
~ Understanding correction
~ Environmental imbalances, development and interaction
~ Natural healing techniques to improve wellness
~ Human wellness

Your dog is a living animal that has his/her own biology. Your dog can experience imbalances within its system as a result of physical, environmental, nutritional, toxic, emotional, spiritual or physiological stressors. These can manifest in your dog in different ways depending on your dog's individual identity, history, learning capacity, environmental experiences, development, co-existence and exposure. In order to resolve these imbalances or prevent them from occurring, there are several interrelated factors that you need to know about your dog; as a canine, as a living animal and as an individual - and how your dog is communicating to you about these imbalances.
Often, imbalances in your dog will be shown through behavioural or physical changes; extreme signals that can be used to alert you that your dog's wellness is not at optimum functioning. Equally, your dog may show behavioural responses that you simply don't understand, don't know how to best to support or are unsure how to teach your dog successfully. You may simply need to understand what your dog is as an animal; it's needs, function, interaction and communication. 
Learn how to co-exist with a happy, healthy dog by being introduced to canine wellness from one of the most highly regarded professionals in her field. 
Dr Isla Fishburn is a canine wellness practitioner who has a BSc in Zoology and a Masters and PhD in Conservation Biology. She has spent several years working daily at a captive wolf sanctuary and continues to work closely with captive wolves. Isla has a passion to motivate others to play thier part in conserving wildlife and hopes this will happen by teaching others how to improve their dog's physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health. She combines her knowledge of biology, canine behaviour, animal energetics, natural remedies and energy work to improve wellness, health and harmony. 

The first day Isla will present a talk on canine wellness (above). The second day is a practical day where Isla will hold a caninepharmacognosy workshop. This will be a demonstration of this subject and places will be limited. A maximum of three handler places will be available and a maximum of 20 attendees in total. Caninepharmacognosy is the term used to describe how canines (and all animals) have the innate ability to select resources from plant material to improve or support their emotional and/or physical health and wellness.

Auto-immune Disease in Dogs - The Tip of the Iceberg

with Sue Armstrong MA VetMB VETMFHom CertIAVH MRCVS RSHom

Time: 10am - 4pm

Cost: £65 per person including lunch

Location: Lumb Baptist Church Lounge, Burnley Road East, Rossendale, Lancs.

BB4 9PL

 

Auto-immune disease is on the rise in dogs (and indeed humans!). There is no single cause of auto-immune disease, but there is evidence to show that modified live vaccines, environmental pollutants, food preservatives and chemicals in dog food, genetics and/or stress can trigger an animal's immune system to attack itself.

The immune system has a vital role to play in keeping our dogs alive and protected from invasion of harmful organisms but when it goes wrong it can be a lethal weapon.

There are many types of autoimmune disease and common symptoms include intense soreness in parts of the body, thyroid problems, itchy or flaky skin, ulceration of the mucous membranes, inflamed ears, excessive licking of the front paws and swelling of the toes. it is important to know about this large group of diseases and more importantly learn how to take measures to limit the risk to your dogs.
