Felicia – Dietary Consultation & Feeding Guide
My consultation with Gerald was completely transformational for my one year old rough collie Merlin.
He had suffered for months with inflammatory bowel disease, which the vet said was like Crohn’s Disease rather than the milder IBS. Even his very healthy dog food made him vomit and caused diarrhoea, and he lost 4kg.
The vet recommended a major manufacturer’s product for sensitive stomachs. This didn’t improve things and Merlin even passed the lining of his large intestine which looked like a placenta!
He had to be anaesthetised to have an ultrasound scan. He was then put on the same manufacturer’s hydrolyzed product, which did no good at all. I was in despair, regularly visiting the vet and having to cancel most activities. The next step was steroids.
At this point I contacted a company making herbal dog food supplements who suggested I consult a canine nutritionist. I had no idea this existed!
I found Gerald online and liked his website and approach. A few weeks later Merlin is completely better! Gerald was always ready with attentive emails, patiently answering all questions and making numerous excellent suggestions.
He started Merlin off with an elimination diet, teaching me what to cook for him and how to do it. This was much easier and less time-consuming than I imagined and my dog really loves his homemade food now in a way he never did with kibble. It made all the difference having someone to help me with what felt like an intractable problem.
Gerald clearly loves his work – and dogs! – and you can completely tell he is totally committed to it. I can’t recommend him highly enough! I only wish vets would let people know that the option of a canine nutritionist exists and will certainly be politely mentioning it to mine!
Di – Starter Consultation
A brilliant man!
The vets sent my greyhound home saying she didn’t have long to live and to feed her protein but gave us no dietary advice.
The Canine Nutritionist gave us all the advice we needed and is always there when I have a question and answers my query immediately.
Six months on and Beanie is still going strong!
Julie – Kidney Disease
I just wanted to show you how much my collie’s skin has improved since I changed his diet.
My dog has kidney failure, arthritis and skin issues and with Gerald’s dietary plan and supplements there has been a huge improvement in just 2 weeks. I can’t wait to see what another 2 weeks looks like!
Thank you so much for your help. He eats better and seems better in himself. I’ve even taken him off his medication as I know this will cause an inflammatory response within his body.
Very happy and there is no looking back now with all our dogs. Here’s to a happy and healthy future for them all.
I purchased the weight loss plan in order to try help my dog lose some much needed weight, after doing my research when my vet let me down.
The plan itself I found to be informative and well put together and was written in such a way it makes sense regardless the diet you feed your dog. Yes some of it is common sense but it truly makes you take a hard look at what you are feeding.
I then received an email from Gerald himself asking a few questions about my dog which I answered and explained the situation. Gerald then sent me several emails offering further advice and couldn’t have been more helpful! I now feel positive that my dog will lose the weight and this is thanks to The Canine Nutritionist’s help and advice.
I will absolutely recommend Gerald and this site to any and all. I have no doubt whatsoever whether you want to help your dog lose weight or look at starting a homemade diet or even supplement your dogs current diet this is the site that will help you.
Consult with The Canine Nutritionist
You wouldn't visit a dentist to have your eyes tested, and you wouldn't go to a chiropodist to have your hair done. So why would you visit a vet in order to discuss your dog's diet? Vets are not trained in nutrition. A dog nutritionist is!
