Our visitors and followers regularly ask us about schools in their respective areas that offer courses on pet nutrition and pet care; we tried to help them by researching for schools in every location. Recently we came across a school “Academy of Natural Health Sciences” which also provides online courses in pet nutrition. They offer the following courses
- Canine Nutrition
- Feline Nutrition
- Equine Nutrition Specialist® (E.N.S.®)
- Clinical Pet Nutritionist® (C.P.N.®)
These home study nutrition programs are carefully designed to help pet lovers to maximize their pet’s overall health and longevity. In addition, the person completing these programs can also venture in to entrepreneurship by setting up his own ‘Pet Nutrition Consultation’ or become a ‘nutrition professional’.
The entire process is very simple, the student after enrolling will be given a list of text books which he can buy from Amazon, Half.com or Barnes and Noble. The student then communicates with the teacher via e-mail. Every student will be sent test materials based on the books, and upon completion of the test the student should return the materials to the academy for grading.
Based on the course the tuition fee ranges from $295 to $1499. On successful completion the graduates will have several career options like private practice or working with a professional team in related areas like animal health, athletic performance of animals or pet nutrition.
One of the most coveted courses offered by the academy is Clinical Pet Nutritionist®, this is also our pick among all the courses. This particular course is very comprehensive and the 500 hour course covers Canine Nutrition, Feline Nutrition, Anatomy & Physiology for Dogs & Cats, Dog & Cat Diseases, Sports Nutrition for Dogs, Clinical Nutrition for Dogs & Cats, Diseases & Natural Remedies, Raw Food Feeding for Dogs & Cats, Breed Specific Nutrition, Prescription Diets for Dogs & Cats, Herbology for Dogs & Cats, Homeopathy for Dogs and Cats, Drug, Herb & Supplement Interactions, Preventing Drug-Caused Nutrient Depletions, Blood Work & Nutritional Interpretations, Canine & Feline Health Assessments, CPN Business & Legal Guides, and Counseling Practicum.
