Feeding Your Fabulous Pet

Your pet’s diet directly impacts its health and overall behaviour.

Just as humans need a highly nutritious diet, exercise, social interaction and personal interests, so do our dogs. The right food can fuel your pet to lead a healthy, happy and long life.

A healthy pet is a happy pet

As an accredited Animal Nutritionist, I’m here to help you support your pet through diet and nutrition.

Whilst we have a healthy belief and focus on species-appropriate feeding fresh, wholefoods we also provide
detailed guidance around commercial pet food choices and
conventional feeding practices if this is a more suitable
option. Everyone is different so an individual approach
assessing and addressing these needs, abilities and budget
is very important when providing suitable advice.

Packages we offer for puppies, adult and senior dogs: 

The Natural Nutrition Package is for those who are interested in learning more about feeding their pet wholefoods. We can help you improve and balance your dog’s current raw diet or transition them to more of a natural feeding regime completely supportive of their individual needs. Feeding your dog a fresh and balanced diet with the right advice is spoiling them the way nature intended!

The Diet Check-up Report is aimed at those wanting to check their pet’s current diet is meeting their overall needs and nutritional guidelines. A full diet analysis is conducted along with product recommendations and comparisons based on any areas where there may be nutritional gaps and support can easily be provided. This type of report is great for those that feed their dog conventionally

We also offer a range of functional diagnostic testing such as:

  • Hair tissue mineral analysis (HTMA) Animal HTMA Brochure
  • Bioresonance testing
  • Food intolerance and sensitivity testing

So we can better assist you and your pet. Follow up nutritional teleconsults are also available for both packages.

There is now a mountain of research that proves an animals 
behaviour has very close links back to their diet. Poor diet can be a primary catalyst for chronic issues and nutritional deficiencies that can easily go unnoticed until your dog may start displaying discomfort in their
day-to-day behaviour.
It’s one of the reasons we encourage you to prioritise assessing what your dog is currently eating.

When we talk about your pet’s diet, we’re looking at a couple of things including:
  • Type and quality of foods they consume
  • Formulation and balance of nutrients
  • Energy density
  • Portion sizes
  • Frequency of feeding
  • Special individual requirements
  • Species-specific requirements

This information is sometimes informed by a pet’s:
  • Age and life-stage
  • Breeding
  • Reproductive status
  • Temperament
  • Intolerances and sensitivities
  • Current health
  • Current body condition
  • Past injury or illness
  • Predispositions
  • Current environment

Certain products and unbalanced diets can be counterproductive and highly inflammatory for our pets. Specific nutrients in their natural unrefined forms are essential for maintaining healthy biochemical function, and enabling normal body processes. When bioavailable nutrients are lacking, this can manifest itself via symptoms such as:

  • Hyperactivity or hypersensitivity
  • Irritability & Lowered thresholds
  • Anxiety or clinginess
  • Changes in appetite and thirst
  • Skin, nails or dull coat
  • Lack of energy or a depressed demeanor
  • Rashes, dry skin, dandruff or itchiness
  • Excess shedding or hair loss
  • Mood swings
  • Restlessness & lack of quality sleep
  • Unusual smell or bad breath
  • Decreased mobility
  • Inconsistent or changes in bowel movements
  • Digestive discomfort
  • Flatulence
  • Impaired immune function
  • Impaired Cognitive function or compulsive tendencies
  • Pickiness
  • Obesity or anorexia

A long, happy life

We all want our pets to enjoy a long healthy and happy life. A highly nutritious diet has been shown to help prevent illness and disease, and to increase the lifespan of our beloved pets. We can support you transitioning them to a diet which will encourage overall health and happiness.

The peace of mind that comes with a pet having their nutritional needs precisely targeted and continually met means not just an overall healthier pet, but less risk of future disease or illness with the comfort you are supporting them to thrive naturally

In the raw

A balanced and natural approach to feeding is considered to be the gold standard when considering species appropriate nutritional for dogs. Even though there are slight physiological and anatomical differences in our current day domestic pets, it most closely resembles an ancestral diet.

When choosing to feed your pet a natural or a home prepared diet, it is important you have professional advice to ensure you’re properly meeting their individual nutritional needs which supports optimal health long term.

Benefits of species appropriate feeding include:

  • Increased longevity and life-span
  • Better dental hygiene and fresher breath
  • Better functioning digestive system
  • Healthier microbiome and GI tract
  • Shinier coat and healthier skin
  • Healthier body condition
  • Enhanced immune system functionality
  • Stronger bones and joints
  • Healthier organs
  • Better blood sugar regulation
  • Healthier neurological function
  • Better natural resistance to parasites
  • A happier and more relaxed disposition

We will work with you to create a meal plan for your pet which provides the balance of nutrients they require according to their individual needs consistent with recommended nutritional allowances. 

A tailored approach
There are many benefits to feeding your pet well, but it can be a confusing task to choose the right approach which is suited to your pets individual needs. This is why we tailor our recommendations to suite your pet specifically. Knowing your pets nutritional needs are being continually met means you'll have an overall happier pet, less predisposed to to disease, illness or the future limitations of old age.
