Consultations & Services

​Hippocrates' famous quote:  "All disease begins in the gut" to me means that good health also begins in the gut. It all comes back to food. 

Collaboration and education are the foundation of my canine nutrition services (I used to be a classroom teacher), and a 45 minute telephone call is an important part of my process. I learn a lot about your dog during this phone call and it's an excellent opportunity for you to ask questions and for us to discuss targeted nutrition for your dog.

Once you have chosen a service, please email me, yvonne@yourgreendog.com, and include a few details about your dog and his food. I will respond within a few days to get some more information, if needed. 

 

From there we will book a time for our telephone call and I will send you my intake questionnaire. The intake questionnaire gives me a snapshot of your dog's current diet, food preferences, eating style, and state of health.

I am not a veterinarian cannot diagnose, treat or offer medical advice for your dog. Consultations are focused on nutrition and education.

 Telephone Consultation - $50 

Telephone consultations are ideal for pet parents who want knowledgeable, friendly guidance on diet and nutrition for their dog. 

This is an opportunity for you to ask questions and receive suggestions on nutrition and wellness for your dog, whether you have a puppy or a senior. 

If you have more than one dog, consider booking separate consultations. 45 minutes goes by surprisingly quickly!

Included in this Service:

  • Evaluation of your dog's intake questionnaire

  • 45 minute telephone call

Not Included in this Service:

  • Recipe

  • Diet adjustments

  • Every dog is different and so I'm unable to guarantee that all recommendations will be a fit for your dog

To book a Telephone Consultation email me:yvonne@yourgreendog.com

Please note that I am not able to diagnose or treat health conditions in your dog.

 Diet  Audit & Recommendations - $100 

This service is for pet parents whose dog is doing well on their current food, whether kibble, cooked, or raw, but need recommendations for fresh food additions and supplements. As part of this service, I audit the diet and look for missing or excessive amounts of nutrients. I look at your dog as an individual and provide recommendations that focus on their breed, age, activity level, weight, health status and owner preference.

A Diet Audit and Recommendations is perfect for pet parents who would like to add fresh food toppers to their dog's kibble, or for pet parents who feed raw or cooked food and would like guidance in optimizing the diet.

This is a proactive plan for generally healthy adult dogs who are doing well on their current diet. Dogs must have overall good stools and no undiagnosed or suspected food intolerances or environmental allergies.

With this service I can make minor nutrient adjustments to the diet (i.e. add omega-3s or add a manganese supplement). However, if your dog's diet is missing many essential nutrients and needs a significant amount of additions and adjustments, I will email you and suggest either a Telephone Consultation to discuss, a Meal Plan Makeover, a Custom Formulated Recipe, or cancellation of the booking.

This service is for one dog. I am not able to diagnose or treat health conditions in your dogs.

Included in this service: 

  • Evaluation of your dog's intake questionnaire

  • Diet audit and adjustments

  • 45 minute telephone call to discuss my recommendations

  • Follow-up email summary of the main points of our conversation, recommendations of fresh food and supplement additions, links to products or resources. I typically have the email summary ready within 3 business days of our phone call

Not included in this service:

  • Recipe

  • Every dog is different and so I'm unable to guarantee that all recommendations will be a fit for your dog

  • Guarantee that the diet will be balanced to NRC standards since much depends on nutrient analysis provided by the manufacturer

If you have any questions about this service or to see if it is a fit for you and your dog please email me.

 Meal Plan Makeover - $145 

A Meal Plan Makeover is an extension of the Diet Audit & Recommendations. This service is for pet parents whose dog is doing fine on their current raw or cooked food but the diet requires a significant number of adjustments to make it as complete and balanced as possible. 

With this service pet parents must be willing to add fish, eggs, meat, and supplements to the diet as needed.

 

Please note that Meal Plan Makeovers are only available for certain DIY and commercial raw products and is dependent on the nutritional information provided by the manufacturer. If there is minimal to no nutritional information I am unable to book this service.

 Custom Formulated Recipe - $70 

Add a custom formulated recipe to an already purchased service.

Sometimes during a Telephone Consultation a pet parent will decide that they would like me to formulate a diet especially for their dog. With this service I will formulate a raw or cooked diet for your dog, guided by his breed, age, and lifestyle. 

 

Recipes are formulated to NRC Recommended Allowances.

This service is for healthy adult dogs.

 Dog Nutrition Seminars
