Would you eat animal bowels & contents known as animal digest, or the beaks & feathers known as by products?
Foods preserved with BHA, BHT & Ethoxyquin may promote kidney, stomach, bladder or thyroid carcinogenesis or even kidney liver dysfunction.
Corn, wheat & soy are inexpensive fillers and can cause extreme allergies with side affects of hot spots itching, loss of coat, ear infections and can lower immune systems to be vulnerable to other diseases.
Would you feed your baby junk foods containing salts & sugars?
Many pet owners are turning to prepared, nutritionally balanced options including fresh raw grinds of antibiotic free, hormone free meats and organic vegetables. You can try cooking for your pet and adding the appropriate individualized supplements.

Supplement your pet’s diet with whole food nutrition options including natural herbs, enzymes, minerals & vitamins such as Vitamin C.
Many veterinarians are taught nutrition from pet food companies. Holistic or integrated veterinarians are trained in nutrition, as well as traditional veterinary medicine that can individualize your pet’s diet to extend their precious lives. My goal is to support veterinarians and alternative practitioners to help your animal friend towards healthy nutrition for regeneration and prevention of illness.
Your pet depends on you to make the best choices for their health. We are pleased to share our knowledge of healthy alternatives – all you have to do it Ask Sheryl.
