“My life mission to help animals began when I was very young. My family pets meant the world to me, and I always felt such a strong connection to them, that it almost seems as though a life spent helping animals was my destined path.”
While in veterinary school, it became apparent to me that my role as a veterinarian went well beyond checkups and surgeries. I realized that I was more than a doctor to our furry friends, I am their friend and advocate. I am the one who they count on when they feel hurt or uncomfortable and they cannot speak for themselves. I am the one who can help them heal when all the conventional solutions offered to their owners to ease their pain have been exhausted. I am their ally.
I realized that in order for our pets to meet their bodies’ nutritional demands, they needed real food. And thus, The Original CrockPet Diet was born.
At last, my desire to help and heal pets with the use of natural therapy was being achieved. Soon enough, acupuncture, herbal therapy and food therapy became my preferred treatments and recommendations. However, I continue to rely on Western Medicine when our pets are inflicted with illnesses and infections that can’t be simply eliminated with herbs and oils.
It felt fantastic to finally be recommending safe and effective treatments that does not cost an arm and a leg. I was advocating for our pets the best way I knew how, with a comfort that the treatment would never be worse than the disease.
