Food & Nutrition Coaching
I will share with you everything I have learned from feeding raw for 20 some years and from my 30-year raw feeding study with over 6,000 dogs and cats.
It is my opinion that most chronic diseases can be prevented by feeding a species appropriate diet. I will share strategies I have seen work very well.
I can help you create custom meal plans for your dog or cat based on the current health condition of your animal.
Learn How To Feed Your Animal For Optimal Health
The foundation for optimal health is nutrition obtained through a proper diet for the particular species in question. Feeding a dog or cat the food they will thrive on is not difficult. Dogs and cats need a specific type of food that works with their digestive system not against it. When fed the appropriate food, the animal will also get all the nutrients it needs to thrive. This in turn will ensure a balanced body. We call this homeostasis and that is the key to prevention of dis-ease. I can help you get your animal into homeostasis.
Having Trouble with a Balanced Diet?
You’re Not Alone. And I’m Here to Help!
Is the food I feed balanced? This is the biggest fear among raw feeders. We look at balance from the wrong end since balance happens from within. It is impossible to create a meal that is balanced since every animal has different requirements and needs depending on many factors like activity level, metabolism, and health status. In addition, the meat you buy in a store in Utah may not have the same nutritional values as the one you buy in a store on Long Island. The
The Myth About Balance
This topic is so hot right now that I will address it again since this is causing many to not switch to a raw food diet. That bothers me since I know the balance discussion is based on a myth and false information. I will remove the guesswork and confusion related to what is balance and what is not. Forget what you have learned and been told. Few understand how this works.
There is a lot of misunderstanding created by sources that benefit from this confusion and also want to create fear. Many buy into this mostly based on lack of knowledge about how animals are internally programmed to obtain a nutritional balance themselves. Who knows better what a body needs other than the body itself? To achieve so called ‘balance’ is much easier than you are led to believe. When you apply natural laws to a living body things become much simpler. Therein lies the entire problem, we humans think we can outsmart mother nature, that is dangerous and a sure path to failure in my opinion.

What You Can Expect
When feeding what dogs or cats are designed for
No bad smell!
A raw fed dog does not smell. Raw will purge the body of toxins and chemicals found in the skin and fur of kibble fed dogs.
People will ask what type of shampoo you’re using to get that shiny looking coat. The fur will also appear softer and thicker.
Better muscle Tone
You dog will develop muscles you never saw. It’s also much esier to keep a raw fed dog from gaining weight.
less poop and less smelly
Lots of owners are surprised how small the poops coming from raw fed dogs are, and also noticed they are less smelly.
Tartar does not grow as easy in raw fed dogs due to the low carb content. This also prevents peridonatal disease.
Healthier immune system
This is the most important benefit! It leads to longer lives and less risk of chronic diseases like cancer. The two most appreciated benefits of raw feeding.
