I started my journey into Pet Nutrition when Wyatt was a puppy . He was so sick, I went to numerous Veterinarians, had numerous tests done and nothing helped. After crying every other day and feeling helpless I took a step back and started applying what I learned from studying human nutrition. I started with the basics, small frequent meals with no heavy proteins, adding in items that supported immune systems and overall good gut health. I started seeing results! I wanted to learn more so I started my course in Clinical Pet Nutrition. I wanted to learn more about medicines. I worked at a holistic veterinarians office to learn both sides of healing animals.

 

What I learned was western medicine is designed for acute care, it helps with diagnoses and evaluating response to therapy. The problem is that it eliminates the symptoms and doesn't get to the root of the problem. For example, if you have pain due to arthritis your body will tell you to take it easy. Taking drugs will make the pain go away but the inflammation (the problem) is still there. Natural therapies will go to the root of the problem (inflammation) and the body will no longer need the symptom. Dogs count on us to provide a healthy and happy life for them, I will work with you to achieve that goal.
