To date I have completed the following 10 week courses with Dr. Eleanor Kellon:
"NRC+" (Advanced Equine Nutrition)
This course was very in-depth, right down to the cellular level. It has given me the understanding of how the various nutrients are utilized by the body and the functions that they support. It has also given me the tools to build balanced, healthy, natural diets that are best for the horse. It provided the knowledge needed to grow healthy hooves and sustain happy, healthy equine bodies.
This course has given me the necessary education to work closely with veterinarians and utilize radiographs (xrays) as a tool in trimming to treat hoof pathologies, especially laminitis/founder.
"Equine Cushings & Insulin Resistance"
This course provided valuable information on understanding these conditions, bloodwork, and treatment.
"Nutrition as Therapy"
This course explained how nutritional deficiencies contribute to a multitude of health problems, and how diet can be used as treatment for various conditions.
Dr. Kellon is a well respected authority in equine nutrition, and an expert in the care and feeding of horses with Insulin Resistance (IR), Equine Cushing's Disease (PPID), and laminitis.
