Dog Nutrition

Are Vets Trained in Nutrition? by Dr. Andrew Jones

"Food is the foundation of life. Food can be used as medicine, instead of using drugs or chemicals. Very few clinicians are trained in food therapy, unfortunately.

Processed food is just as bad for our pets as it is for us." ~Holistic Pet Food: An Interview with a Holistic Vet

Dog nutrition is so important. Many of us wait until our dog(s) have an issue. We have had much success with seeking help from holistic veterinarians and dog professionals specialized in pet nutrition.
