Natural nutrition means feeding a diet that ensures your dog is receiving all the nutrients a canine requires. Recipes are formulated to NRC standards and based on your dog’s unique qualities including life stage, activity, health status, and more.

“My dog was having random stomach issues and constant anxiety problems, I figured out it all had to do with what I was feeding her. She wouldn’t eat her kibble (the highest end kind) unless it was added with bone broth or other food motivators. She would rather go days without eating than eat kibble. That was causing her the anxiety, the stomach issues… her kibble didn’t make her feel good. With Alicia’s guidance to identify the right raw foods for my dog, a feeding schedule, how to feed, etc. I now have a dog who looks forward to every meal. Feeding her raw has evened out her weight and she is MUCH less anxious. We are both less anxious now because I no longer worry about her food. She loves her raw diet, she is healthier because of it and when you feed your dog raw it all makes sense that this is how dogs are supposed to eat.”
Every dog is different and should be fed as an individual who requires specific nutrients for their species, age, life stage, health, activity level and more. I have learned from experience raising four dogs, feeding raw, feeding home cooked, feeding raw fad diets and working with hundreds of rescued animals that the science of nutrition cannot be argued with. I have experienced firsthand what a complete and balanced fresh food diet does for my own dogs and seen what an incomplete diet does and how it is harmful.
I have completed hours upon hours studying canine nutrition for my own dog’s sake, and those that I work with in rescue. Science does not lie – dogs need specific nutrients on a daily basis and dogs need fresh foods incorporated in their diets on a daily basis for optimal health.
Transitioning to a Fresh Foods Diet: Transitioning your dog to a fresh foods diet can take time, patience AND dedication. You will receive information on how to transition your dog to avoid GI upset, but as with any new food, this might occur. If you have been feeding kibble, vaccinating yearly and/or giving antibiotics for your dog’s entire life, your dog’s gut pH balance will be off and will need time to adjust and heal.
What if my dog has special needs or can’t handle raw food, or I don’t want to feed raw food? You don’t have to feed your dog anything you are uncomfortable with. Ultimately, you know your dog best and need to be their advocate. If your dog has special medical or dietary needs we will discuss this at length via the detailed intake form I send or over the phone. I want to gain as much information as I can about your dog so I can create the best recipe for him or her. If that takes an extra phone call, then that is what we will do!
“My foster dog had recently been diagnosed with diabetes. I didn’t have tons of experience on this condition and was redirected to Alicia for advice and support. She talked me through everything and provided me a great amount of knowledge! I am very grateful for her coaching me through this and I feel my foster’s health has benefited greatly. In fact, now that his diabetes is under control we are adopting him ”
