About Me

Hello, my name is Cath Keno.

I decided to become an Animal Naturopath after our dog, Rick, at the age of 6 years, was diagnosed with an automimmune disease, Systemic Histiocytosis, for which there was no known cause or cure.  During this time I was looking for a change in career direction so to speak and after using natural remedies in his treatment and seeing what a difference they made I decided that becoming an Animal Naturopath was the path I had been searching for. I found a Natural Animal Health course by correspondence, St Francis College of Natural Animal Health; and went on to study Medical Science – Anatomy & Physiology, Nutrition, Herbal Medicine, Homeopathy, Tissue Salts, Bach Flowers, Therapeutics, First Aid. 

I do not pressure people into only going the 'natural' way and believe that natural medicine and conventional medicine have different strengths.  Conventional medicine and natural medicine can often be taken at the same time so do not think you can only do one or the

other.  As with us humans natural health for your pet is another treatment option available to you.

When Rick was ill we questioned ourselves about whether we had done something to cause the disease and if there were things we could have done differently.  We had fed Rick a well-known brand of dog food brought at the Vet clinic, he was well exercised, had his vaccinations every year as required as well as regular flea and worm treatments. 


With the help of changing to a raw diet, homeopathy and herbal treatments Rick lived 19 months longer as opposed to the 3-6 months originally suggested. I learnt a lot from this experience about the limitations of conventional medicine in some situations and also about how helpful a raw diet and natural medicines can be in illness/disease.  I also learnt that treatment needed to encompass more than just one herb or just a change of food.  A holistic treatment plan worked best.  One that included certain types of food, supplements, a combination of herbs and at times homeopathy.

If you are interested in providing your dog or cat with natural treatment options or have any questions I would love to hear from you.
