We are thrilled to welcome veterinarian Dr. Jody Bearman to CLUCK on Saturday, March 7, from 9. to 11 a.m. for an informal talk on using natural methods for keeping chickens healthy and happy.

Dr. Bearman will describe her experiences caring for a wide range of animals – including horses, chickens, cats, dogs and other small and large animals -- using both Western and Eastern health techniques and traditions. The founder of Anshen Veterinary practice in Madison, Dr. Bearman will discuss how elements of traditional Chinese medicine, including acupuncture and herbs, can be used to help your chickens (and other animals) heal and stay healthy. A Q&A session will follow her talk.

You must register in advance, and there is a $5 fee which will be donated to Heartland Farm Sanctuary. Email susan@cluckthechickenstore.com.

She is a Certified Veterinary Chinese Herbalist and Certified Veterinary Acupuncturist from the Chi Institute for Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine where she also taught. She has more than 23 years of experience in traditional and Eastern veterinary medicine, including homeopathy, T-Touch, and tui-na(Chinese massage techniques).
