Wondering how you can help your dog thrive – not just survive? Are they eating a balanced diet and getting the nutrients and minerals they need to live in optimum health?
In this Episode of the Muttz with Mannerz™ Canine Academy Podcast, host Corey McCusker interviews Lucy Jabrayan, owner of Thrive4life Holistic Pet Food to discuss supplements and how they can help your pet.
Lucy has been actively helping people and their furry kids turn to natural alternatives that work. She herself uses natural alternatives to care for all her four-legged children from dogs, cats, horses – and even goats! Lucy helps many others do the same while working in an integrative way with other health care practitioners and veterinarians.
In this episode Corey and Lucy share:
- How Lucy began working with pets using her knowledge from sports nutrition and now calls herself a pet health educator.
- Three reasons supplements can help your pet.
- Reason one: Balanced Nutrition – why supplementation is required to attain this.
- Reason two: Special Needs – related to the age, activity level, or breed of your pet.
- Reason three: Anti-aging – Slowing down the aging process for your pet.
- Three supplements that Lucy recommends.
- The story of a German Shepherd that Lucy consulted with and the amazing results the owner saw after using the right high-quality supplements.
- Why targeted supplementation is important for the health of your pet.
- The consultation process that Lucy uses when determining an approach for your pet.
- Lucy’s best tip – keep things simple!
‘There is a time in place, of course, for pharmaceuticals. But sometimes I find the approach is… it’s kind of like blowing out a candle with a blowtorch. It’s just total overkill.’
