For adult dogs who have a health issue or multiple issues that need to be addressed and thus require more support time.
By preparing fresh meals for your dog you control the sourcing and
quality of ingredients that are affordable in your area.
Kidney, liver, heart, cancer, urinary, digestive issues, cognitive changes/behavior concerns, weight loss and food intolerance are all included in this category. This consult is also recommended for dogs who have not eaten much fresh food and for dog parents new to fresh feeding. We take a slower approach to ensure no stomach upsets and to allow time to get used to the process.
A detailed intake form is emailed after booking to get a full health history, including lab work. You will also receive a document to explain what to expect during the consulting process. Attention is paid to your dog’s breed, age, and lifestyle.
This consult includes eight weeks of continual support via email as we work on developing a personalized, NRC balanced fresh food diet plan for your dog to address their health concerns. A methodical approach is taken to ensure stools and digestion are good before moving on to the next steps. This is not simply a recipe, it is a diet plan with professional, experienced support. All foods are discussed prior to ensure they are available consistently and are affordable- your dog’s likes and dislikes are always considered! Tips on prep, cooking and storage are also sent and the support includes all related questions.
Your dog's history with fresh foods, age and health issues all affect the process. Extra support can be purchased in two week increments if needed, we will never rush the process.
Note that the consulting process is dependent on your dog being stable- chronic diarrhea, GI upset needs to be addressed with your veterinarian prior to introducing a new diet.
