Yvonne King, Cert. CN

Hello, I'm Yvonne! As a canine nutritionist I know that a good diet is the foundation of good health.


In 2016 my dog's chronic health issues immersed me in the exciting and conflicting world of canine nutrition.


With a philosophy of 'Food is Everything', I believe that feeding our dogs fresh, whole foods is the key to their best health and improved longevity.

Canine nutrition is an ever-evolving field, and I pride myself in staying up to date on the latest published research.


In addition to my formal coursework, I’m continuously learning through webinars, online conferences, and independent research projects. I’ve also been invited to speak at various dog nutrition events. 

I publish a free newsletter each month, which is jam-packed with dog nutrition tips and information. Click here to read some of my past newsletters.


You can also find me on Instagram @therealyvonneking. My two Golden Retrievers, Jake and Coral, are known to make frequent appearances!
