Nutritional Therapy for Cats & Dogs

  • Have you just adopted a new cat or dog and you're after some guidance on the best food to feed him?
  • Is your cat or dog in her golden years and you'd like to know what additional nutritional support you can provide?
  • Do you want to ensure your cat or dog is eating a diet that reduces his risk of disease?
  • Or perhaps your cat or dog is suffering from illness or disease like a skin condition, digestive issues, allergies or urinary tract condition? 


Nutrition is vital in ensuring general wellbeing for your cat or dog.  Unfortunately, the majority of commercial pet food today is not healthy. It is believed to be responsible for many of the most common diseases suffered by pets today, for example, diabetes, obesity, cancer, heart disease and digestive complaints.


As a qualified and experienced animal nutritionist and animal naturopath, I can help you provide your cat or dog with solutions that:

  • provide optimum nutrition and treatment protocols to improve your pet's health; and 

  • don't result in negative side effects.

If your cat or dog is suffering from disease, I can assist them in the healing process by stimulating their natural inherent ability to heal.

If your cat or dog appears healthy, I can help you ensure that he or she stays that way, naturally.

My mission is to teach others that there is another way to care for animals. A way that is different to the mainstream model of care, which is, in many respects, failing animals. 

The model of care that I teach and apply honours animals and nature. It incorporates natural health modalities. It honours the natural being-ness of animals, the natural characteristics and desires of animals. It is a model of care that completely honours the inherent value of nature and animals.  

Staying true to my values of love and respect for animals and my appreciation and admiration for the powerful healing ways of nature has helped me to create a service that I am proud of.  It has enabled me to achieve positive and long term results for animals, time and time again.

I use a naturopathic, holistic approach that means treating the animal from a whole body perspective. When an animal is unwell, the body is out of balance. Working in a holistic or naturopathic way means:

  • taking into account the whole animal, rather than focussing specifically on a medical condition or the presenting symptoms; and

  • supporting the animal's body to achieve balance and to heal using the body's natural or inherent healing abilities.

This approach complements conventional veterinary treatment and a veterinary diagnosis of a medical condition can often be beneficial.


I have witnessed incredible improvements in the health of both dogs and cats through a combination of simple dietary changes and natural remedies - the power of nature truly is amazing! A state of whole body wellness can be achieved, and when the body is brought back into balance, certain conditions can naturally be resolved.


I offer a number of in person and online programs tailored to suit your pet's individual needs and circumstances (priced from $129). I can also tailor a program just for you.


With each program, you will receive a consult plus a treatment plan that includes diet, supplement and lifestyle recommendations. Other inclusions may consist of follow up consults, email/phone support, customised meal plan, recipes and VIP bonuses.

I also offer plant based diet programs for dogs. Find out more here.

Why is nutritional therapy beneficial for your pets?
The number of dogs and cats who are suffering from poor health is increasing. They are most commonly suffering from skin issues, allergies, digestive disorders, bladder disease, obesity, diabetes, diseases of the liver, kidney, heart and cancer. 

Many of these health conditions may be caused, or at least contributed to, by poor nutrition.

Some of these diseases are similar to the ones we suffer from. And it is not surprising, considering the chemical-heavy world we live in and the abundance of processed food commonly included in our and our pets' diets. On top of that, pets are commonly treated with chemical-based medications at the first sign of disease or as a way to control parasites.


The food your pets eat, and the environment they live in, can cause them to suffer from toxic overload, which can make them sicker over time.

As a believer and user of natural therapies for my own health, it makes perfect sense to me that our four-legged animal friends can similarly benefit from natural therapies.  What this approach looks like is a natural, whole-food diet with quality natural food-based supplementation and a clean and safe environment and lifestyle. 

I bet this makes sense to you too, right?

Please note, I am not a veterinarian and therefore I am not able to diagnose a health condition. It is important if your animal is suffering from a health condition, that you obtain a veterinary diagnosis. I can then help your animal heal holistically using complementary therapies and by treating the whole animal.
