What is Functional Medicine for Dogs?
with Cami Smalley
Get the TRUE Scoop on Canine Nutrition!
Our canine companions bring a world of joy, love, connection, experiences and lessons to the life in which we share with them. It should be no secret that our pet’s health is often on a similar trajectory as human health; rife with chronic disease, hormone imbalances, cancer, and a shortening lifespan. Help me bring functional nutrition to our dogs in the 21st century!
This is about root cause resolution, finding the upstream cause to downstream conditions. This is personalized nutrition for dogs. While working in Veterinary clinics, we would send nearly every single dog or cat home with prescribed pharmaceuticals – antihistamines, anti-inflammatories, antibiotics, antidepressants, you name it…the focus was all anti, not supportive and certainly not preventive or auspicious.I firmly believe that this is not the best we can do for our pets. My work involves helping provide nutritive care for the physical, mental and emotional well-being of people and pets.
