Cat Lane, Dip. CFN,  Chartered Herbalist

Since 2002 I have worked with close to five thousand cases, averaging around 300  full service cases per year., an intensive diet and herbal consultation that involves the development of several recipes and herbal protocols with online support during transition, and follow up to ensure the protocols are successful.  In addition I do online and in-person herbal consults  of a more straightforward nature, which do not involve as much time as the intensive option, on average another 3-400 per year. This includes proactive diets for healthy adult dogs; growth and senior diets; specialized dietary care for  conditions including but not limited to cancer, allergy, IBD, liver disease, kidney disease, uroliths (oxalate, urate and struvite stones) osteo-arthritis, various forms of heart disease, Cushing’s disease, Addison’s disease, diabetes, pancreatitis and obesity, as well as specialized diets for performance dogs.

Home Cooking for Dogs- an Online Tutorial

In this 10 lesson tutorial, we will go through how and why to cook for dogs, how to build nutritionally complete recipes for your dogs and what a dog’s nutritional requirements are, how to prepare your dogs’ food and how you can optimise their food to enhance the health of the dogs in your life.


It is both an approachable course, but with a scientific basis ensuring you have the peace of mind that your dog is getting everything they need but also that they enjoy eating! 


Cooked food is becoming increasingly popular for a variety of reasons including the ability to produce food that is personalised to your dog, it’s highly palatable for picky eaters and can be a  better solution for many dogs.
