The food our pet’s eat can influence their physical and mental wellbeing and needs to be taken seriously.
Dr Katie is very interested in the impact on food, and the way it is offered to pets, on animal behaviour. She is more than happy to discuss your pet’s food; dogs, cats, rabbits and other small furries. Food can be used as a fantastic enrichment improving pet’s quality of life.
Whether you feed dry or wet food, home cooked or Raw Dr Katie can discuss the pros and cons of each specific to your pet.
One of the big indicators as to whether it suits your pet is their poo! But we also want to ensure that your pet is happy eating it and that they are thriving on it.
We sell our own brand high quality, grain free dog food through our training branch Positive Pet Training and you can see more about it here.
“Nutrition affects behaviour and health hugely, and yet is something so easy for us to have control over..”
