Nutritional Seminar For Law Enforcement Dogs And Handlers Is July 24

Tuesday, July 16, 2013

Blowing Springs Kennel is hosting a free Police/K9 Nutritional Seminar open to law enforcement dogs and handlers only on July 24 at noon.  The presenter will be Colleen Smith, DVM, CVA, CVCP of Chattanooga Holistic Animal Institute.   

Dr. Smith will discuss nutritional needs, nutritional timing, and how K9 Officers use their nutrition.  The need of the seminar arose from the lack of nutritional information that K9 handlers receive as a part of their basic training.  Lunch will be provided and the seminar will close with a question and answer session.

Blowing Springs Kennel is a boarding, training, and breeding facility. The facility is open for tours any time during regular business hours.   

CHAI offers veterinary acupuncture, veterinary chiropractic services, nutrition therapy, laser therapy, green grooming, awake dental procedures, digital X-rays, vaccinations and vaccine titers, general medicine, canine massage therapy and nutritional supplements.
