Furrst Place, I provide dog nutrition counseling to obtain the optimum
health of your canine furkid and maximum performance for the working
dog. I can also assist in resolving health issues related to nutrition.
Several varieties of fresh raw frozen food or holistic kibble as
well as supplements are available for sale.
having 2 dogs die with cancer and several dogs succumb to chronic
disease, I began a lifelong research effort into canine nutrition.
It is my belief that proper nutrition is vital to health as it supports
the immune system so that dogs are naturally able to fight off disease,
ticks, fleas, mange, chemical and environmental exposures, and a
myriad of other problems bombarding our pets today. I have learned
that quality, human-grade protein that is bioavailable to the dog
and food that is without additives and preservatives promotes the
proper functioning of the immune system. Enzymes, probiotics, and
prebiotics are essential for proper canine nutrition.
and performance enthusiasts were the first to recognize nutrition
to be a vital role in producing healthy, disease resistant animals.
hold among pet owners is the belief that dogs need a raw, natural
diet for optimum health and a functioning immune system. If raw
feeding does not fit into your lifestyle, a high-quality, holistic
kibble made with USDA inspected, human grade meat sources along
with enzymes and probiotics is an absolute must. Please understand
that all kibbles are not created equal. Some manufacturers add meat
from unknown sources that are unsuitable for digestion and proper
kibble manufacturers use grain as a source of protein. Dogs are
carnivores (meat-eaters). Grains are an ill source for protein and
are probably the #1 producer of allergies in pets. The Merck Veterinary
Manual tells us that dogs "have no dietary requirement for
carbohydrate." If that is true (and it has proven true in my
experiences), there is no role for grains in the diet of a canine.
They, instead, need human grade meats. Grains are also metabolized
by the body into glucose which is known to feed cancer.
provide nutritional counseling for pet owners to initiate their
own nutritional programs for their pets. Phone consults are welcomed.
