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.

Frozen Dog Treats Part Two – Savoury!

So, it's the weekend and I am having a little fun with recipes - a thread on my Facebook group convinced me to develop more frozen treats for the warm summer months, and since not all dogs love fruit, I thought I'd do a few savoury, but still very healthy versions....
