book-realFoodReal Food for Dogs and Cats
by Clare Middle

Clare has written here a great little book. Based primarily on Ian Billinghurst’s work in The Barf Diet, but with additions of her own. I don’t agree with everything she’s written, but endorse most. A good read from a great vet.

During Covid

During the Covid Crisis, I am able to give advice to animals not in my direct care.

If you have a dog and you would like to consult with me, we can arrange telemedicine consultations. We are happy to talk to you from anywhere in the world. Telephone is usually sufficient, but Zoom and Skype can also be easily arranged.

New Policy for 2021: Our commitment to raw and fresh food feeding is total. We are unable to see your dog if you are unwilling or unable to consider feeding your dog a raw or fresh food diet.
