“I had always been intrigued by the raw food diet, but too nervous to make the switch. The negative information out there worried me. Additionally, my dogs, Stanley and Twinkie, don’t have any major health issues where I felt like they needed to switch. But, like any parent, I want my dogs to eat something they enjoy and something that’s truly healthy for them. Over the years, I’d tried various brands of kibble in search of the best one. However, I found that even on the highest quality kibble, Stanley began gaining weight and starting to look old and he’s only 6; and Twinkie always had softer stools.

So, I finally made the decision to be proactive in their health and contacted Alicia. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t extremely nervous to try them on raw food, almost paranoid. This was totally outside of what I always knew about feeding dogs. What if I don’t do it right? What if it’s not balanced? What if it makes them sick?  But, once I got started with Alicia I felt completely at ease, after all she is a canine nutrition expert. Alicia looked at each of my dogs as individuals, and also took me into consideration. Alicia gave me brand recommendations of prepackaged raw food (this is where she considered me ) which she based on a very detailed questionnaire about each my dogs. She provided me with instructions for transitioning them, and also let me know what I can expect during the transition phase.

Today, my dogs have been eating raw food for over 3 months. I can honestly say that my dogs are the happiest I’ve ever seen them about meal time and they are very healthy pups. Stanley’s physique looks incredible, like he’s a teenager again; and Twinkie has some seriously solid stools now which is amazing! Not to mention their coats.  They went from having dull coats to gorgeous shiny fur coats. Alicia has been with me every step of the way and always answered any questions I had. We still continue to discuss supplements to add to their diets.

Alicia’s dedication to me and my dogs is exceptional. It’s been so comforting to have a coach through this process and to know that my dogs are eating the best food that’s appropriate for them and tailored to their individual needs. I don’t think I would have had the guts to go this alone and I am very thankful to Alicia for helping me make this transition. If Stanley and Twinkie could, they’d smother Alicia with kisses out of gratitude for helping me do this! Thank you, Alicia! I couldn’t have done it without you.”
