Want to care for your animal in a way that brings them health and happiness at all levels of their being?
That ensures their innate needs and desires are being nurtured, and that supports them to live their best life?
WITHOUT BEING SWAYED BY ALL THE CONFLICTING INFORMATION THAT LEAVES YOU FEELING DISEMPOWERED AND STUCK?
To the animal lovers who desire to care for their animals in a holistic and natural way...
I see how much you love your animal and how desperately you want them to live a happy and healthy life. I know it can be tough at times because:
There is so much conflicting information out there.
Everywhere you turn, there’s something different to try.
You're left not knowing what's best for your animal.
You've sought out support, which has left you feeling disempowered and intimidated.
You're at a loss for where to turn to get the support and guidance you're after.
In order for you to care for your animal in the way you crave, you need to have guidance you can trust plus workable strategies so that you can support your animal - now and into the future - in the ways they need (and deserve!) for optimised health and wellbeing.
Guidance that is steeped in experience and that comes from a place of compassion.
Strategies that encompass animal care from all perspectives - the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual - because for your animal to be the happiest and healthiest version of themself, they need to be nurtured at all aspects of their being.
Strategies that are sustainable - you can incorporate them into your life with ease, once you have the support and guidance on how to do that.
But the reality is...
Advertising, social media, the internet, practitioners - they can all be sources of information that are misguided or even misleading. Add to that, they'll never know your animal the way you do.
You're not disillusioned - something inside you questions the information that you’re being given. It all seems so narrow focussed and centered around processed food, medications, artificial ingredients.
This concerns you because you’re worried about the negative impacts on your animal long term.
You find yourself thinking, “surely my animal would be better off with real food, natural products and less medication?”.
To be honest, you’re fed up with the fake foods, the drugs, the synthetics, the one size fits all, and the “I know best, do what I say” approach. You’re looking for something else...
All you want is for your animal to be healthy and happy, and to express their true nature.
Surely there’s someone who can help you get clarity on what the next step is to nurture your animal in a holistic way?
There is, and this is why I created this new offering for you...
HOLISTIC ANIMAL CARE
A 5-WEEK ONLINE WORKSHOP SERIES FOR ANIMAL LOVERS, LIKE YOU, DESIRING TO LEARN MORE ABOUT HOLISTIC ANIMAL CARE SO YOU CAN SUPPORT YOUR ANIMALS IN A WAY THAT NURTURES THEIR WHOLE BEING - BODY, MIND AND SOUL.
Coming to you live from 7 November 2023.
This is where you'll receive guidance and workable strategies on holistic animal care. An event that calls out the BS and helps you to care for your animals holistically so they can live their happiest, healthiest, bestest life.
This workshop series has been created for you...
Because I know what it’s like to be bombarded with conflicting information when it comes to pet care, and to feel stuck in moving forward, or to be intimidated into doing something that deep down, you know, isn't the best thing for your animal.
I've had healthy pets, and I've had pets with health issues.
I've been swayed by misleading advertising that foods are healthy, natural and that will meet my animal's needs (when in fact they were far from it).
I've been told that unless I give my animal veterinary medications, they will get seriously ill and could die (when there were other, safer options we could try).
I'm pretty sure I've been told the same things that you've been told when it comes to looking after your animals. It's frustrating and unhelpful.
And I KNOW I've had clients who've felt the same way you do...
"I had been reading so much, up most the night trying to work this out. So it was good to have Ruth to help put this into perspective for me. I felt that I was talking to someone with a common love and understanding of what it's like to truly love and want the best for your furbaby at every stage of their life."
- Fiona Zimmerlie-Clarke
And this is why I have created the Holistic Animal Care Workshop Series.
For the past 8 years, I’ve helped animal lovers learn new ways of caring for their animals holistically, and naturally. Ways that draw on natural feeding principles, safe natural remedies, disease prevention, mental enrichment, energy hygiene, emotional wellbeing, and human animal connection.
So that animal lovers can nurture their animals in a way that optimises their animal’s health - body mind and soul, increases their vitality, helps their animal to heal, supports their animal in preventing disease, brings their animal joy and allows their animal to express their natural self.
Here's the 4-step framework that Ruth takes her clients through:
We look at your animal’s diet to see where improvements can be made to shift their diet over to a natural, species appropriate diet.
We also assess their toxic load and offer strategies for reducing it. And we explore natural remedies that can help nourish and support your animal’s physical body.
We assess this aspect by exploring your animal’s level of mental enrichment - are they mentally stimulated and satisfied in a way that aligns with their innate needs and desires?
Are your animal’s emotional needs being met? Are they feeling all the feels they deserve to feel, like, safety, joy, peace, love. Or are they overwhelmed with feelings of fear, loneliness, grief, frustration, irritability and so on?
What is your animal’s energy hygiene like? Are they holding onto dense energy that is interfering with their health and wellbeing? Are you connecting at a heart and soul level?
And it's what we'll be exploring in the workshop.
Here's a look at what we'll be covering:

Hi, I'm Ruth
I'm an animal naturopath, pet nutritionist and energy worker. Since 2015, I've been helping animal lovers nurture their animals in natural and holistic ways that support their whole being - body, mind and soul.
I know that I've experienced similar to what you've experienced when it comes to caring for animals. I know how frustrating it can be when we can't access the support and guidance that we're after. When everything is shrouded in quick fixes and driven by profit. When "solutions" given, just end up making our animals SICKER.
That's why I'm committed to helping animal lovers care for their animals holistically.
My approach focuses around providing strategies to help animals build strong health foundations, improve their overall health and wellbeing, and set them on the path to healing.
It's also about supporting the humans - helping them to understand their role in their animal’s health and wellbeing, to learn skills on how to show up as a better pet parent and foster a deeper heart-soul connection, and to navigate challenges that will almost always arise when supporting an animal to heal, and live their best life.
"Fantastic! Ruth was very thorough and provided lots of information. I like how Jack’s needs…and ours…have been met in this journey of gaining better health for Jack. I feel empowered that I have the necessary tools to improve his wellness."
- JAYNE MCINTYRE
"I love how comfortable everything felt and how you could feel Ruth's compassion and care for your pet. I loved that we focused on goals and I was able to walk away with some tips to start straight away. I felt supported and guided and now feel more confident with the decisions I am making."
- CHLOE BRYCE
"I loved everything about the session I had with Ruth. Her knowledge, professionalism and willingness to provide guidance and share her knowledge honestly. Perfect."
- BRADLEY COLE
"The way Ruth shares her knowledge makes it easy to understand and is very helpful. Working with Ruth enabled me to put what I learnt from her in to action. Her attention to detail as she assists you to help your dog, empowers me with confidence to be a better dog mum."
- MICHELE HILL
