"Thank you also for the refreshing straight talk on your informative web site. It is very generous of you to share your expertise, particularly concerning raw diets, supplements, etc. etc. Canine nutrition can be very confusing for a consumer and you deliver the facts in a concise and unbiased way." -Donald and Susan
"You are doing a real service. I've always tried to be a conscientious owner, and I've run the gambit on foods. I'm back to science and evidence based, as I always should have been. There's so much misinformation, and it's very nice to see a response from trained expert vet nutritionists." -Adam
"Thanks to you, I am 100% completely happy with what my cats are eating, and I no longer lie awake at night worrying about them." -Alice
"Thank you for giving us a diet recommendation that would comply with our vet's orders for low phosphorus, low protein yet would give her nutrients and energy to sustain and improve her life. It has only been a few weeks but we certainly see a difference and she is clearly very happy to be able to eat a meal on her own. Making her the home cooked meals ensures she does not get chemicals and preservatives that would adversely affect her kidneys." -Maria
"I have been feeding my dog the dietary formulation you recommended for several months now and I am extremely pleased. He has lost weight and is now at an acceptable body condition and there has been no more diarrhea or vomiting. Thank you very much for your help this has improved my dog's quality of life significantly." -Dr. Diana
"My cat Sara is 17 1/2, and my vet and I agree, I owe this to you! Thank you for all your help throughout the years.

"Finally! A sane voice in a sea of disquiet.The raw diets are out. Thanks so much for the site, it's wonderful and soooo helpful." -Elaine
"Thank you! It has been overwhelming trying to figure out what to feed to my dogs until I was recommended to your service. I greatly appreciate your help and your explanation makes perfect sense." -Britney
"THANK YOU for the home made ultra low fat recipe and all of the extra information included with the diet. I have spent far too much money on stuff that was not nearly as significant for Ring in terms of his health issues right now. I do not mind in the least paying the fee for having you formulate this diet and making it SO easy particularly as regards to the supplements. He is doing amazingly well thanks to your help." -Dr. Susan
