With her wealth of knowledge and compassion for animals, Pet Nutritionist Susan Blake Davis, (CCN) will help you discover new insights into holistic pet care. Susan can provide you with a unique and new perspective that will complement the veterinary care you are receiving from your veterinarian. Susan will address your pet's entire overall health condition and offer holistic alternatives that have successfully helped other animals. As a pet nutritionist, she will provide you with a comprehensive holistic plan with detailed information about how nutrition, diet, supplements and other holistic services can assist in the healing of an animal's health condition. Many clients who schedule holistic consultations already have their pet on a prescription pet food and since Susan is a pet nutritionist, she can help you develop a natural, balanced alternative. Susan will teach you how to prepare a homemade diet or use commercially prepared foods in combination with some homemade options specifically tailored to your pet's health condition and food preferences.
Prior to becoming a pet nutritionist, Susan gained valuable experience volunteering her time in animal rescue. She is the founder of Ariel Rescue a 501(c) (3) public charity dedicated to saving the lives of shelter dogs in impoverished communities. 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.
