All of our recipes are individually crafted after we connect with your veterinarian to make sure that our formulation correctly reflects your dog's health status. At this step we identify any other medical conditions. It is critical because there may be medical considerations that your veterinarian knows of that could influence the appropriateness of diet selection.This relationship with your veterinarian is a key part of the program because diet should never be used in isolation to treat medical conditions. It is the integration of medical treatment with diet that makes this program yield real results. With each formulation we provide you with ideas about some medical treatments you might expect as part of the overall plan, along with general information about the disease itself.
We offer advice on meal plan preparation, storage and feeding directions. All medical concerns about your dog's diet need to be discussed between you and your veterinarian.
