Food is medicine. A balanced and appropriate diet is the foundation of health and is the most important aspect of wellness for your pet. Food therapy is the practice of healing using natural foods and supplements. A specific diet or certain foods may be recommended to aid in your pet’s therapy.
Choices are made based on the theory of food energetics. This means the effects on the body after a certain food is eaten, like temperature, flavor, and action. Food therapy is especially helpful with digestive, respiratory, or skin problems. Supplements and home-made diets may also be discussed.
