Holistic Animal Therapy Organisation (formerly HATAA)
The purposes of the Holistic Animal Therapy Organisation are:
To advance the formal and professional recognition of animal naturopaths and natural animal therapists and to represent the interests of and provide support for holistic animal therapists through professional advice, information and an opportunity for social interaction. HATO also sets professional standards and a code of ethics for animal naturopaths, animal herbalists and other practitioner members. HATO approves suitable animal naturopathy courses and courses in animal homeopathy, herbal medicine for animals, equine and canine acupuncture, canine massage, equine massage and other education in natural animal health for practitioners and seeks affiliation and accreditation with like-minded groups and associations both in Australia and overseas to promote public awareness of holistic animal therapies and holistic animal care within the community. The Holistic Animal Therapy Organisation also acts as a forum for discussion in animal naturopathy and holistic animal therapies and to foster the teaching of holistic animal healing principles through media channels, community groups, educational and veterinary medical institutions for the benefit of all animals to increase holistic understanding between all species. HATO also aims to promote and educate people on animal naturopathy and alternative health care and natural animal therapies without causing pain or suffering, without using toxic drug therapy or products or invasive, painful types of surgery. HATO is the premier organisation for qualified animal naturopaths, animal herbalists, animal homeopaths, canine and equine massage therapists and other accredited natural animal health practitioners.
Our passion and love for all creatures deserves to be known by all who have the same desire.
