As a Certified Veterinary Technician & Canine Nutritionist, I am well equipped to assist pet owners in creating health and wellness goals for their animal companions!.
"A veterinary technician’s goal is to help patients live a long, happy, and healthy life, and proper nutrition is the cornerstone of that goal. Therefore, it is imperative that veterinary technicians play an active and leading role in educating clients about proper nutrition for their pets. Even animals that are not sick may not have optimum wellness."
"The veterinary healthcare team should focus on proper nutrition for every animal that presents to their hospital. To do this, veterinary technicians should be responsible for performing complete nutritional histories and patient assessments, as well as for educating pet parents about proper nutrition for their beloved animals."
-IVC (Innovative Veterinary Care) Journal

Believe it or not, I have experience in all these areas! And I'd love to help you and your dog or cat!
You can read my full story HERE! But for now, see if you can relate to this:
When my first dog started having digestive problems, I tried EVERYTHING.
Countless foods, prescription diets, medications, supplements.
I don't even know how much I spent trying to find something that worked. Let alone, how many hours I devoted to scouring the internet for answers.
Money, and time are two things that nobody likes to waste. Especially when it's a blind hunt for answers or even a tidbit of information that might help.
When it comes to the ones we love, we would do anything for them... including the furry ones! If only there was a quick way to get the answers we desire, and get our pets back on track.
With a Whole Body Wellness Consultation, I put my 10+ years of knowledge to work and do all the research, so you don't have to go searching for answers.
After I have your pet's full history (including everything you have tried that did or did not work) we will start putting together a plan.
You will then receive a Custom Wellness Report that will be sent directly to you. It will include the food, supplements and other modalities/ lifestyle changes that I recommend for your pet's individual needs.
*Note: Food & supplement recommendations are NOT just a brand recommendation. I will have very specific products listed from reputable companies who have high standards of quality control and ingredient sourcing.
**Keep in mind, I do not treat disease. I simply give you the tools to boost your pet's overall health and well-being, so the body can do the work of reaching it's full and healthy potential.

Learn more about how a healthy diet and lifestyle can benefit your pet!
We live in a world where convenience is everything.
Overly processed food, a sprinkle of toxins on our lawns, a chemical cleaner (or 10) in the home, an automatic room spray to cover up the stink.. The list goes on...
Millions of pets are suffering, at the expense of a toxic environment, poor diet, and less than optimal lifestyle.
Yes, all of these contribute to the nutritional and overall health status of our pets.
It first begins with what they eat, and continues on to environmental factors..
Both of these are the prime staple to affecting nutritional variation and impacting homeostasis of the body.
NUTRITION: Can be described as what we feed the body. The act of nourishing- a sum of processes in which a plant or animal takes in and utilizes food.
HOMEOSTASIS: Is the ability to maintain consistent conditions of our internal environment; such as temperature, pH balance, nutrient supplies to cells, removing waste, and heart rate. It is any self-regulating process by which biological systems tend to maintain proper stability, all while adjusting to conditions that are optimal for survival.
Everything that our pets are exposed to directly affects their health status- for better, or for worse.
The core of the immune system, and the body's health, always begins at a cellular level, and specifically; in the gut.
Food must be broken down, and also properly absorbed, in order to fully utilize it's nutrients, and supply the body with energy, and vitality.
In order for this to happen, the food must first be bio-available. Proper enzymes, and intestinal flora must also be present.
Meanwhile, the body should filter out other elements that need not be floating around, causing havoc (I.e. toxins and waste)!
When the body doesn't have this cycle put together correctly;
Food is not digested
Food components are not absorbed
Toxins begin to accumulate
*Stress and emotional health can also play a role in gut health!
Even if an animal is fed a 100% raw, species appropriate diet, gut health can be disrupted from plummeting mental state, and decreased emotional well-being.
If the body lacks vital minerals and other nutrients, and is under a constant state of stress, the animal can then develop a decreased ability to fight off pathogens and parasites. (I have had 1 client report that after a proper diet change, their pet eliminated parasites! This may be due to the fact that the body is restoring vital nutrients and the immune system is increasing).
When the body is not supplied with proper nutrients:
Chronic inflammation accumulates
Vitality is depleted
Homeostasis is disrupted.
The body is now plagued, and imbalances occur.
Ultimately leading to illness and unpleasant symptoms.
Low quality food, heavy toxin load, environmental stressors; both physical and emotional = decreased health status.
BUT, what happens if the body is fed a nutritious/wholesome, appropriate diet, with toxins being properly eliminated and their external environment is cleaned up?
Health. That's what happens!
The body regains it's HOMEOSTASIS.
And VITALITY is restored.
As a part of the Whole Body Wellness Consultation, you will fill out an initial intake questionnaire.
Things I will address:
.... and More!
I also include a short assessment on the pet's mental/ emotional status. It is well documented that stress and emotions play a role in physical health.This helps me gain a broader spectrum of your pet's overall wellness.
After gaining a detailed, full analysis of the pet's health status, I will create a Custom Nutrition Plan to perfectly fit their needs.
Nutrition is a key factor in what I call Surviving Vs. Thriving.
"Let food be thy medicine, and let medicine be thy food."
