Hello!

I have a Pug with a mixed bag of issues and have been on a specially formulated home-cooked diet from a local University per the recommendation of my home holistic vet and our specialist for over 9 months. There are many issues and concerns that I have about the diet. I’m looking for an independent nutritionist at this point, because of the awful experiences of dealing with the UT and the diet not being as personalized as I would like it to be.


Has anyone used a Pet Nutritionist? Have anyone to recommend? Good or bad experiences? Any advice?


Thank you!!

Surprised no one's chimed in here since home cooking for stubborn chronic problems is common these days. Just curious: why don't you think the recommended diet is working and what did the vet who created it tell you? Is the vet a board certified veterinary nutritionist (DACVN)?

These are the usual suspects among high visibility nutritionists who are board certified and "independent":

Lisa Weeth, DVM, DACVN


Rebecca Remillard, DVM, DACVN

Both of these vets have a very mainstream approach to nutrition as most DACVNs do.

Susan Wynn DVM is a not board certified DACVN but she is very highly thought of among the golden retriever folks I follow who have a lot of experience. She seems to have a more "holistic" approach.
