By Dr. Jeannie Thomason I know you have heard it before, “You are what you eat!”  This applies to our companion animals just as much as it does to us humans. The right food/nutrients is critical and essential to good brain function, muscle and organ growth and maintiance, and of course to a strong immune system.

By Dr. Jeannie Thomason What is Species Specific Nutrition?  It is supplying the nutritional needs of the body according to the species.  For example, horses are herbivores – whether they are wild or domesticated, whether they are a big Irish Draught or a Shetland Pony.  They must have grasses and herbs to thrive.  Bear and Swine are omnivores and scavangers they must have both grasses, fruits and some meat to thrive. Dogs and cats – both are carnivores – no matter what the pet food and veterinary industry want you to believe.  Their jaws, their teeth, their lack of...

by Dr. Jeannie Thomason co-founder of the American Council of Animal Naturopathy Not a day goes by that I don’t see people posting on social media or emailing me about their new puppy or kitten already having digestive issues or itchy skin.  The majority of these people have already taken the puppy or kitten to a veterinarian (or several) and spent a lot of money on blood tests, fecal tests, dewormers, antibiotics, probiotics, several different brands of pet food and expensive ingredients to make their own “home cooked” diet.  Sadly, all to no avail.   They are desperately...

For millennia, they have survived by eating other animals. Observation of wild carnivores shows us that the first parts eaten after the kill are typically the abdominal contents (liver, […]

Wild carnivores eat meat, bones, intestinal contents and internal organs and glands, such as liver, spleen, thyroid, kidneys, brain, adrenals, etc. Dogs and cats are carnivores/predators. For millennia, they have survived by eating other animals. Observation of wild carnivores shows us that the first parts eaten after the kill are typically the abdominal contents (liver, spleen, kidneys, adrenals, pancreas and intestines) because the highest priority is placed on eating these organs.
