What are you feeding your dog or cat? Dry kibble, grain-free, canned meat, homemade, frozen patties, raw, dehydrated, or prescription food are just some of the terminology expressed related to our pets’ diets. How about the actual protein source and how important is it related to health?
How Nutritional Counseling Works at Meadowbrook Animal Healing
On the initial visit to the office, as part of your pet’s intake information, you will fill out a survey that evaluates your pet’s overall health by the organ systems of the body, such as digestive, heart, liver, kidney, etc. I will review this survey with you and determine if your pet can benefit from whole food supplementation. The supplements are made by Standard Process and address the specific needs of the organ system.
It is encouraged to bring any supplements that you are administering to your pet at the present time and we will review these as well.
Discussion of the current food you are feeding, how much, and how frequently will also be part of the counseling. What type of foods are you feeding, including all the treats, is important information. If you can bring a picture of the list of ingredients, that’s even better!
Please be aware I do not design any form of raw food diet balancing programs. I will make recommendations on protein choices based on the breed, age, and energetics of your pet using my knowledge in Traditional Chinese Food Therapy for pets.
