Nutrition is one of the most powerful healing tools available.
“Let food be thy medicine, and medicine shall be thy food.”
-Hippocrates, Father of Medicine, 400 BC
“You are what you eat” applies to our animals just as much as it does for us. Because of the many health challenges our animals are facing, a proper diet is crucial to our animal’s well-being and healing process.
At The Whole Pet we consider food to be a critical component of your pet’s health regimen. We can help you navigate the different food types, processing methods and ingredient labels. Recommendations take into account an animal’s health status, breed, age, weight, work load, etc.
A biologically appropriate diet assists the individual animal to regain and maintain health and vitality. It also assists in replenishing deficiencies and eliminating toxins. This helps the cells, tissues and organs to perform as optimally as possible.
Nutritional supplements may be recommended based on your pet’s individual metabolism and state of health. (If your pet is currently on any supplements or medications, please bring them so we may evaluate them at your appointment.)
We do not provide individual diet formulations. For clients wishing to home-prepare diets for their pets we can recommend recipe books or please visit the following websites for diet formulator services.
