One of the skills we teach is the Snout-to-Tail Assessment. Read how this saved one pet’s life . . .

A pet owner, who took our class, saved her little dog because she did her homework assignment of the Snout-to-Tail Assessment. Where you go from Snout-to-Tail with deliberate intent and purpose creating a baseline of your pet’s health. Also, so that you know more of what is normal for your pet, so you can more quickly recognize what is not normal for your pet. She found mammary tumors growing on her dog. She took her to the vet, who confirmed the diagnosis. Luckily she caught it early enough that treatment was successful. However, the vet did tell her that if she had let that go just another five or six months, the outcome may not have been as good. This simple skill that can take only a few minutes added thousands of minutes to this pet’s life.
