Food and Health

The links between good food and wellness are well established in humans and the benefits of good, species appropriate food have become increasingly clear to pet owners.

We know from countless experiences that our raw food is more appealing than kibble or over processed foods. It has texture and visual appeal as well as tasting a whole world better. Our customers comment on the way their pet reacts to our food and it is with pleasure that we note that they love it! Enjoying food releases endorphins just like it would in humans.

Raw Food is being recognized by progressive vets as having health and wellness benefits for sick animals as well as healthy animals. Some of these vets have been kind enough to recommend our food to their patients. Older and sick pets benefit even more then healthy pets from a raw food diet. Some of the reasons are set out below:

  • Raw Food is easier to digest than kibble as the stomach is designed to process and utilize this kind of food. A sick dog is more able to eat and absorb the nutrients from our food and it places less strain on their digestive system


  • The dogs simply enjoy eating it so much more! - for older dogs this alone makes the transition to raw food worth it


I tell my patients to think of cancer as a weed. Modern western oncology is focused on destroying the weed…integrative oncology concentrates on the soil the weed grows in…making the soil as inhospitable as possible to the growth and spread of the weed.

– Dr. Donald Abrams, MD, Author, Integrative Oncology; Professor UCSF Center for Integrative Medicine

Cancer is on the rise in our pets.  Not everybody, faced with this emotionally wrenching situation wants to take the conventional approach to treatment.  I first heard Dr Pope speak during the Healthy Dog Expo in Albany NY in 2022.  Her approach encompasses changing how we treat cancer and chronic disease through the use of science based and evidence informed integrative medicine.

Nutritional Analysis

Nutritional Analysis

Recently we purchased a tool developed by one of the worlds leading veterinarians, and an  authority on dog nutrition, to help us evaluate our dinners to ensure that they contained all the necessary nutrition required by dogs and cats.  This uses as a benchmark the guidelines that have been produced by AAFCO - the Association of Animal Feed Manufacturers.  While these guidelines are designed to ensure manufacturers of kibble are adding the right artificial nutrients and additives in their kibble to ensure nutritional standards are achieved, we can use this as a guide to the nutritional content of our food.  Our recipes passed with flying colors after only minor tweaks in some cases. You can be reassured that your pet is getting all his or her nutritional needs and in the most natural way possible.
