Think Beyond the Bowl

Nutrition has become very important in my own health challenges. Vitamins, minerals, and electrolytes help repair an injury.

Nutrition is more than just putting kibble in a bowl. There are many options out there to supplement your dogs nutrition for an overall healthier dog gut and mental stability.   You can choose from freeze dried toppers, raw frozen organ meet or marrow bones, air dried bones, tendons, collagen and more.  These items have the vitamins and minerals needed to support your dogs joints, brain health,  and gut health.  Yes I have tried all of these options for my dogs and cats!

Your dog or cat can also benefit from Standard Process Veterinary Formulas to help bridge the gap created by the processing of foods to kibble. Standard Process supplements are made from whole food ingredients your pet would instinctively eat. These ingredients deliver the full spectrum of nutrition in its natural form. When we choose a Standard Process Veterinary Formula, we are providing your pet with essential nutritional complexity.

Targeted Nutritional Support Using Whole Food Supplements

Since 1929, Standard Process has been dedicated to the field of nutritional supplements and the whole food philosophy. In 2002, Veterinary Support formulas were created by a veterinarian with this same philosophy in mind. The goal of nutritional support is to provide complete nutrition to each cell, restoring normal metabolic function.

Whole foods contain hundreds of biologically active compounds, including enzymes, phytonutrients, and amino acids. When left intact, whole food nutrients are more available and active than isolated nutrients.   Meeting a Patient’s Individual Needs for nutritional requirements can vary greatly from one animal to another. Whole food supplements enable the body to compensate for these individual differences by providing a full complement of nutrients. With whole food supplements, the body can pick and choose needed nutrient substrates without overloading any one system or organ.


We believe that given the proper nutrition, your pet has the amazing capability of keeping itself
healthy. We also believe that nutrition should be individualized to meet each patient’s needs. For these reasons and many more, we proudly recommend Standard Process Veterinary Formulas.

Why do I use Standard Process Nutrition?

My own health challenges with West Nile Virus have shown me how much nutrition plays a role in repair from an injury.

Standard Process uses organ based nutrients to fuel the body to heal.

Nutrition for the Athlete

Canine Musculoskeletal

Canine Immune Support

Boswellia Complex


Canine Whole Body

Heart Sound Recorder

Our Heart is the window to our body health. An Echocardiograph developed by Dr Royal Lee in 1937 has saved many lives. My own brother had atrial fibrillation and healed his heart with nutrition rather then having an ablation. The graph maps the 4 heart valves sounds showing what nutrition the body requires to support it. Read more here.


1. What nutrition support can I add other then glucosamine products?

Curcumin and Boswellia
Help with decreasing inflammation at the root source and current injury.
I have been taking the Boswellia Complex for my knees and have seen less
pain and crepitus noises.

2. Should I try CBD oil for my dogs pain?

The research is still on going for the effects of CBD oil in pets.  Colorado State University has
been conducting a study with results coming.  I feel it is a personal choice of the owner.   My theory on pain is to get to the source for healing so there is no more pain.  Anything else is a bandaid.

3. Should my dog take fish oil?

Fish oil is another great anti-inflammatory that I also use to take myself.  Recently I read a book The Medical Medium that said fish oil, high quality, has the highest concentration of mercury in it.
Now I take a plant based Omega 3 oil. I am still researching plant based oils for dogs.

4. How do I get this nutrition?

Through Patient Direct.  They will be shipped directly to your door.
