Are you happy with conventional medicines and drugs?
Let's face it ... going to the conventional vet's office can just make your dog sicker.
Sure, the drugs, antibiotics and chemicals prescribed for common health issues often work in the short term ... but most medicines are toxic to your dog's body and these toxins create even more health issues in the long run.
For example, treating ear infections with antibiotics destroys both the good and bad bacteria in the ear and paves the way for new unwanted hosts to set up camp, causing ear infections to keep coming back.
Over time, bacteria can become resistant to modern drugs and antibiotics just stop working. Heartworms and intestinal worms are also becoming immune to drugs.
Pharmaceuticals are not the answer ...
Many drugs and pharmaceuticals are manufactured from herbs ... but they're extracted and standardized in a lab and the resulting pills are very different from whole plant medicine. Herbs contain active ingredients plus important cofactors ... this makes herbs more effective (and safer) than drugs.
Drugs suppress symptoms and stress the immune system ... while herbs and whole plant medicine support the immune system and treat symptoms at their core.
Simply stated, herbs carry all the benefit of drugs without unwanted and unsafe side effects.
As dogs are dying younger and younger every year, the interest in herbal and natural medicines is growing quickly ... dog owners are starting to understand that drugs and chemicals are not the path to good health.
This is where you come in.
As an Acute Canine Herbalism Specialist, you'll be able to manage common health issues with herbs. From growing and harvesting your own herbs, to preparing recipes, you'll be prepared to replace harmful medications with whole plants.
More specifically, after this master class, you'll be able to:
In short, you'll be prepared to respond to most acute injuries or illnesses with proven herbal recipes.
Then it's time to get certified ...
Your Dogs Naturally University certification means you'll be ready to confidently grow, harvest, compound and use herbal remedies to treat common acute issues ... either for your own dog or for the dogs and clients you work with.
The Acute Canine Herbalism certification and badge are your way of showing you're committed to herbal medicine ... and they'll show others you've learned from one of the most trusted sources in natural dog care.
We built this course to get you started, quickly and safely, on your path to herbal healing.
The Certification Course is 9 hours of video training and contains downloadable handouts and exercises. Most classes can be completed in a weekend if you're working on them full-time, but 7 to 14 days is the recommended time to complete the course.
Once you complete the course, you'll be able to sit for the final exam (which is taken online). The exam isn't tricky, but you'll need a passing grade of 75% to get certified and you can take the test up to three times. If you don't receive a passing grade after the third attempt, you'll be required to go back through the course again. The exam should take from 30 to 60 minutes to complete and consists of 75 multiple choice questions.
Upon successful completion of the course and exam, you'll receive a personalized badge and certificate. Your badge works with Mozilla's Open Badges Project, so it can be displayed in places that matter, including your website, email signature or LinkedIn profile. Plus you'll receive a full color certificate that's suitable for framing so you can display your achievement.

DNM University certification will benefit many people.
They’re great for vet techs who want a tangible way to show they have specialization in natural animal health and nutrition; they’re great for students who are looking for more specialized skills to help them stand out from the competition; they’re great for retail pet stores and pet food companies to make sure their employees are up to speed on the best practices for natural modalities; and people who want to work as pet health coaches can benefit from knowing the course content is 100% holistic and provided by qualified people who are active in the industry. DNM University certification can help attract more clients and higher-paying clients.
And it’s also extremely useful for breeders and rescue workers and even individual dog owners who don’t necessarily want the certification, but want an organized, thoroughly vetted and usable source of actionable practices that will keep their dog or cat in the best health possible and help them to be prepared for when illness strikes.
The DNM University courses are designed so you can take them at home. All you need is an internet connection and a computer or device. All course modules and exams are online.
We’ve divided the courses into smaller segments so you can cover as much content as you have time for each session. And this shortens the time commitment for each individual course. Most courses contain 6 to 10 hours of video instruction, so you could complete it in a weekend if you do it full time. But it’s best to put the course into practice as you go through it, so we recommend 3 to 14 days to complete the course.
You’re required to get 75% or more on the final exam. This is made up of 75 multiple choice questions. DNM University courses set you up for success. Each module will contain a quiz that you must pass before you move to the next one. This makes sure you don’t just complete the course, but that you understand the content and can put it into action when you’ve finished.
You have a total of 3 times to pass the exam. If after three tries you strike out, you'll be prompted to take the course over again. You won't have to pay for it again. But don't worry. This course is designed for success, not failure. Take good notes and you'll be just fine!
The value of DNM University certification courses lies in the content. There are other certification courses available but we had so many requests for certification courses that were DNM approved - so you can be confident the DNM University courses contain a 100% natural approach and will be written by the industry’s top experts.
