With her wealth of knowledge about holistic pet care and extensive experience recuperating rescued animals from shelters, Susan Blake Davis, Pet Nutritionist founded Ask Ariel Your Pet Nutritionist. Susan is a licensed Pet Nutritionist who provided pet health consultations at the The Veterinary Cancer Group and at several VCA Hospitals in Southern California.

Many of these animals were severely malnourished and sick but Susan saw their potential, and working with local veterinarians, restored them to good health. She saw the power of nutritious foods, holistic pet care and the benefit of natural supplements in their healing. Ariel Rescue saved over 1500 pets that would have otherwise perished.
