Welcome to the new improved Possible Canine!  The  blog will offer articles on all aspects of canine nutrition, with a section devoted to herbs for dogs, and information on natural care and prevention of common (and not-so-common) canine health conditions. In addition, I offer  both proactive and therapeutic nutrition and herbal consultations,  as well as online courses in both canine nutrition and animal herbalism. Look for a whole new section on natural management/prevention of common canine conditions, and a newsletter coming soon. Welcome to The Possible Canine.
