Nutrition For Your Dog or Cat
Dr. Jessie believes that what you feed your pet every day is the most important health choice you will make for your pet. A healthy digestive system is crucial to disease treatment and prevention of sickness. You may discover that changing your pet’s diet is all you need to do to keep them happy and healthy!
Food therapy for dogs and cats can be especially effective in managing:
- Digestive problems (such as chronic vomiting or diarrhea, chronic weight loss, inflammatory bowel disease)
- Skin problems (such as chronic skin infections, chronic allergies)
- Endocrine problems (such as hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, Addinson’s disease, Cushing’s disease)
- And much, much more!
Dr. Jessie works closely with a veterinary dietician to create an individualized balanced, home-made diet aimed at treating your pet’s underlying disease process, not just their daily symptoms. These recipes are based on Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM), and include protein, carbohydrate, and vegetable components. Home-made diet recipes typically take about 2-3 weeks to be formulated.
If a full home-made diet cannot be performed for your pet, then Dr. Jessie will work with you to select the best pet food for your pet, or even specific food elements that should be added to your pet’s current food.
Anti-cancer diets – Dr. Jessie specializes in formulating specific anti-cancer diets for pets. She combines these diets with acupuncture and herbal therapy treatments to achieve the BEST results for your pet.
