Presenter: Tom Farrington


Course Intro:

This practical course is delivered by Tom Farrington,a veterinary surgeon for whom healing knows no bounds. With four decades of hands-on experience in both conventional veterinary care and revolutionary homeopathic medicine for animals and humans, he champions an all-encompassing approach to patient well-being. His work embodies the essence of holistic care, where science meets intuition and his patients—both furry and human—are embraced in the full spectrum of healing.

This course on Practical Homeopathy is primarily for large animal owners/guardians from Farmers to Horse Enthusiasts but small pet owners and guardians are welcome too.

Tom will share his evidence based methodology that blends diverse modalities, from acupuncture to osteopathy, nutrition to zoocognopharmacy (this concept involves animals selecting essential oils, herbs, plants, or supplements that resonate with their needs).


What You’ll Learn:

  • The course will in part be tailored to the attendees on the day but Tom will introduce you to a basic level of homeopathy with practical tips that can cover everything from Livestock to Horses to Pets
  • The principles of first removing obstacles to cure (these can be as simple as food, bedding, exercise etc)
  • Knowing what symptoms/signs to look for that will help you when looking at the patient
  • How to select the best remedy and what to do if that doesn't work


Course Elements:

  • This interactive course is designed to be a combination of indoor and outdoor classroom based learning
  • You’ll have lots of opportunities to ask questions and learn from both Tom and other students as your discuss real life case studies
  • A walk around our organic farm and gardens to see the farm’s cows, pigs and chicken actively self healing through zoocognopharmacy (Horses and other animals will often seek out plants beneficial to their problem from eating clay to blackberries)


Good to Know:

  • This course on Practical Homeopathy is primarily for large animal owners/guardians from Farmers to Horse Enthusiasts but small pet owners and guardians are welcome too.
  • As we’ll spend time walking and learning around the farm please bring suitable clothing and footwear - and allow for changeable weather so bring wellies and a coat!
