Home - Natural Pet Care

As an animal lover, I understand that you only want what's best for your pet.  Unfortunately, most of what has been shared with many pet owners is not always what's best for health.  Most of the time, products, treatments, and services are marketed solely for profits, and not for optimal health.  It's time that your pets health and livelihood comes before someone else's profit-driven agenda.

My goal is to help make sure you are as informed as possible before making decisions that can negatively effect your pets' lives.

I can schedule private, individualized consultations with you to help you get your pet on the right track towards the best health that can be achieved.

  • Why Kibble is a recipe for Bloat (Gastric Torsion) Dog bloat -- the unexplained bloating and twisting of the stomach, that mainly occurs in large-chested breeds -- but usuallly happens when the dog eats too quickly, and drinks too much, gulping air, and possibly exercises too much after eating.  Don't mention that the non-raised bowl adds to it as well right?  WRONG!!It's in the ingredients, and the way kibble tries to force the dog's digestive system to do something it wasn't intended to do.The ingredients (I'll mention 2) in many kibble brands add to the problem of bloat - like the 1) dehydrated beet pulp - whose sole job in the digestion process is to swell and absorb liquid from the interstitial fluid in ...

  • Flea Treats, Nutritionally complete diet, dewormers, and ivermectin...
