About Us

We believe that a fresh food diet, made in your own kitchen, is the most nutritious way to feed the whole family; including the four-legged members! But, how do you make sure you're giving your pet everything his or her body requires in the correct amounts and ratios? It is our mission to provide the how, by offering easy, affordable, and balanced recipes based on your pet's specific needs, so your furry family member can thrive and live a long & happy life with you!

Our Philosophy

Our nutrition philosophy is one that looks at the whole animal and "brings them back to nature" as much as possible. This includes not only a fresh  food diet, but also awareness of lifestyle, knowledge of disease prevention, and the use of holistic therapies. We work closely with many Portland veterinarians, animal chiropractors and acupuncturists to form a healing team that addresses the needs of each individual dog and cat.

She holds a Bachelor’s degree in Biology from Warner Pacific College and her motivation to continue learning about complementary veterinary therapies has expanded her knowledge of the animal body as a whole.
