About Us

started feeding my senior dogs a raw diet after they were diagnosed with Cushing’s Disease. The treatment seemed worse than the disease and the odds of a full recovery was less than 40%. This opened my mind to alternative solutions. In the past I would have followed the direction of my vet using traditional medicines to treat… well, everything! Today, I use food as the first line of defense to support good health. I do not treat symptoms,  I treat health problems systemically using Naturopathic medicine and practices.

After witnessing the benefits of raw whole foods for my own dogs I wanted to share my newfound discovery with my friends in the Charlotte community. However, first I needed to learn more about nutrition and how a dogs system reacts to food. I studied Canine Nutrition at Companion Animal Science Institute (CASI) and became a certified  Canine Nutritionist. I use a well know Animal Nutritionists to confirm my recipes are balanced according to NRC before I send to a lab for the Guaranteed Analysis, then to USDA to register my labels. 

Today my mission is to provide a quality raw dog food to the Charlotte community using local, whole, fresh foods, at a reasonable price. I buy my meats from local butchers, farmers, and packing houses (when available); always USDA grade. I pick up my vegetables and fruits from the Charlotte Regional Farmers Market fresh every Saturday. My food and natural jerky is prepared in my commercial kitchen attached to my home in Cotswold. My employees are local dog lovers.                                         

Good health is an accumulation of informed decisions, it is our responsibility to make the best decisions to offer our companions the highest quality of life possible.
