The doctor of the future will no longer treat the human frame with drugs, but rather will cure and prevent disease with NUTRITION”
As urban companion animal clinicians at The Strand Veterinarian we’ve noticed a concerning upsurge in the number of skin, gut and liver cases we see daily. What’s up with that?
Over the past 3 years Dr Justine Alley has dedicated time and energy into exploring the intricacies and latest clinical data on pet nutrition, as we believe the gut is the answer.
Ongoing discussions with pet health advocates in the wellness & nutrition sectors has allowed us to create our own unique strategy on using nutrition to optimise health and wellbeing … thinking outside the square with an individual approach to every patient. A bit different from the big brand approach of treating one condition and ignoring all the others … and paying very little attention to gut health.
Food is lurv!
Nutrition being the cornerstone of preventative health is not a new concept, especially when thinking about our own health. Our focus has been on finding a range of sustainably farmed, ethically sourced, high quality meat-based (preferably locally produced) recipes … that our pets will love! There is nothing worse than putting your cat or dog on a food that does wonders for their skin, but they pick at the food and then stare longingly, wondering when their “real food” is coming. Although it takes time, knowledge and dedication to find the perfect fit, it’s worth it in the end.
Pick of the best
Our senior nursing team will walk you through the steps in determining the best diet for your 4-legged friend – or analyse your current diet to make sure that it is not involved in the plethora of issues that has plagued pet food brands around the world.
They will ensure a smooth transition to the new diet, discuss any concerns they may have with our veterinary team – or involve some of our paraprofessionals (acupuncture, specialists, nutritionists, herbal medicine etc) if needed.
If you ever have any questions about the quality of your pet’s diet, concern about underlying health issues … or just want to make their feeding time more exciting, call us on 093776667 or email us to book a nutrition consult now.
