Your local canine nutritionist
If you’ve ever searched for a local canine nutritionist, you’ll know how difficult it can be. I’m based in Yeovil in Somerset. I suppose I would be considered local to anyone living in Somerset, Dorset and perhaps Devon and Wiltshire. But local is a relative term when it comes to being a canine nutritionist. I can help your dog wherever you live since most of my dog nutrition consultations are carried out online. A vet normally has to see your dog. I don’t. I learn most of what I need to know directly from you. It’s what’s going on inside your dog that matters most to me. Because that’s where most canine health problems start. And that’s where they can be cured. Not with medication that will treat the symptom. But with food that will treat the cause of your dog’s problem!
Food as medicine
Food as medicine is not a new concept. Hippocrates is believed to have coined the phrase “food is medicine” some 2500 years ago. He also said “leave your drugs in the chemist’s pot if you can heal the patient with food.” Or words to that effect. He knew a thing or two did Hippocrates. And it doesn’t matter that he might have been thinking in terms of human beings when he said it. Because exactly the same applies to our companion animals. Specifically our dogs. Food is medicine and it’s the medicine I regularly prescribe as a local canine nutritionist. Because in the vast majority of cases, better food, improved nutrition, can cure most canine health problems. It’s as simple as that. No potentially harmful chemicals. No potentially life-threatening injections. Just better food!
This morning, my wife and I cooked a batch of food for our dogs. This will provide them with their evening meal and the rest will be apportioned and frozen until required. The protein was provided by chicken thigh and chicken heart. As with everything we feed our dogs, these had been passed fit for human consumption. To this we added sweet potatoes. Then we added kale, beetroot, beetroot greens, French beans, courgettes, nasturtium leaves and flowers and apples, all freshly picked from our garden an hour or so earlier.
To make this cook complete, I added some herbs and spices from nature’s medicine chest. Basil, cleavers, dandelion greens, dill, mint leaves, oregano, parsley, plantain, rosemary and thyme, every one of which has proven health benefits for our canine companions. These highly nutritious herbs go to make up my Dog Food Seasoning. Trust me. My dogs will love it!
Natural canine treatments
I treat my dogs holistically. They don’t have annual vaccinations which are proving to be catastrophic to the health of our canine companions. They have robust immune systems because they are fed well. This means they are far less attractive to the likes of fleas and other parasites.
I don’t treat them with spot-on treatments either. All such treatments are both completely unnatural and potentially harmful to your dog. And to say that some people are doing this on a monthly basis is simply outrageous. If you really love your dog, cancel your subscription immediately. Your dog does not need these treatments. And most certainly not on a monthly basis. You are poisoning your dog, weakening his or her immune system, and paving the way for future illnesses and potentially a shorter life.
If you really want to protect your dog, speak to your local canine nutritionist. Start your dog on a healthy dog diet. Boost your best friend’s immune system and look forward to many more happy years with a healthy dog!
