Welcome to Pet Nutrition Doctor

Focus on Nutrition

Dr. Evelyn’s focus on nutrition is based on the understanding that food is information. This information determines the body’s response. Food can act as poison, causing damage and weakness to a system; or it can act as medicine, supporting, strengthening and healing a system. Just as one man’s trash is another man’s treasure; a particular food or herb may help one pet to heal and may cause another pet to become ill. Just as each owner is different, each pet and his or her needs are different. And these needs change over time. So should the food.

Her goal is to teach pet owners and care givers that health begins in the gut.

Her goal is to teach pet owners and care givers that health begins in the gut. The gut, or digestive system, houses most of the body’s immune system, the majority of the bacteria that call our bodies home and contain 99% of the DNA in our bodies and control most of our hormones. The bacteria in the gut produce hormones and other by-products essential for life as well as those that affect behavior, mood and energy. How we choose to feed these organs and the associated friendly, and not so friendly bacteria, affects every aspect of health and well-being.
