This is an online nutrition consultation for dogs who are facing health challenges. It is suited to those who would like to work with therapeutic nutrition but do not require a great deal of email interaction or herbal support. The service covers two and a half hours of my time, and begins with a thorough assessment of your dog via a detailed Intake form, which covers veterinary, nutrition and behavioural history. The next step is a process of nutrient calculation, so all requirements relative to your dog’s bodyweight, age and activity level will be precisely covered- and finally, I develop the recipe and write it up for you with clear instructions as to preparation and transition.
- One therapeutic recipe, tailored to your dog’s nutrient requirements, as determined by the National Research Council’s Nutrient Requirements of Dogs (2006) but also geared to the specific needs of the condition(s) you are seeking help with.
- General Dietary Guidelines containing Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) and pointers on everything from cooking techniques, substitutions, individual foods and their nutrient profiles, managing the dietary transition, converting commonly used measurements, food storage and safety and much more
- Additional time beyond my formulation process may be used for questions as indicated
I can formulate weekly batches for you to prepare ahead of time, or smaller recipes are available as an option for those who prefer to cook 1-2 days at a time; I use raw or cooked as each case suggests is optimal. Once you have booked, I will issue you the Intake form, and confirm your date. My waiting list runs from 3 to 5 weeks, although I can usually make room quickly for urgent cases. Note that second recipes may be purchased at a later date, or an herbal consultation added separately if you decide to incorporate herbs into your dog’s health strategy.
