Proactive Adult Dog Consultation
A personalized and targeted approach that ensures your healthy dog’s diet not only meets his/her nutritional requirements, but also takes into account:
Breed predispositions – pancreatitis, uroliths, cancer, etc.
Age – Diets for dogs entering their senior years differ from those dogs in early adulthood.
Activity/Lifestyle – If your dog is an athlete or a show dog you want to ensure optimal nutrition to help them reach their full potential.
Please contact monica at monicasegal.com to discuss before ordering.
A healthy dog has normal stool, skin and coat and is at his/her ideal weight without a history of any health concerns.
In our experience, pet parents who are new to home made diets value concise instruction with fewer ingredients. We've been feeding home-prepared diets to our own dogs for 20+ years and know it doesn’t have to be all or nothing. Not ready to do 100% homemade but want to feed some fresh foods? Clients who tell us this when ordering the consultation have the option of feeding commercial raw or kibble 50% of the time and homemade the rest of the time. Perhaps one meal of commercial kibble or raw and one fresh food meal works better for your busy schedule.
For experienced fresh food feeders who prefer a balance-over-time approach (but want peace of mind the diet is truly balanced) we're happy to formulate a diet that suits your needs and schedule best i.e. we can balance over one or two weeks to one month, and use more variety, if that is preferred.
This consultation is a good option for anyone already feeding DIY but who want peace of mind the diet is balanced.
This proactive consultation includes:
Raw or cooked recipe
Written instructions on how to transition to the diet and supplements
Four weeks of uninterrupted support
*The time frame for our waiting list changes weekly. Current waiting list is 2 weeks (sooner if possible) from the time we receive complete replies to the intake questionnaire you will receive.
A $25 fee is applicable if the incorrect consultation is ordered. Please contact if in doubt.
A $50 fee is applicable if a client cancels the order prior to the diet formulation being done. Cancellations after that time frame are not refundable.
This consultation is at the top tier of tools to help keep your dog healthy. Every dog deserves this approach.
