"Thank you so much for all your help! My dogs have done fabulous on these home cooked diets. :)" -Amy
"THANK YOU for the home made ultra low fat recipe and all of the extra information included with the diet. I have spent far too much money on stuff that was not nearly as significant for Ring in terms of his health issues right now. I do not mind in the least paying the fee for having you formulate this diet and making it SO easy particularly as regards to the supplements. He is doing amazingly well thanks to your help." -Dr. Susan
"I have been a vet tech for about 10 yrs and recommend your website all the time to our clients that want to make homemade diets or have a picky eater with a medical condition that requires a certain diet and you guys have always been great. Thanks so much for the information you can provide." -Laurie
"I wanted to thank you again for the dietary recommendations that you provided for our beloved Beagle, Jenny. She had cancer in addition to kidney failure, and she died three weeks ago. She loved your diet very much and I wanted you to know how much it enhanced the quality of her life. You provide a wonderful service, and I am so grateful to you." -Karen
"Your "Ask the Nutritionist" reponses to nutritional myths are a very useful resource. Thank you for making that resource searchable for readers on specific keywords and topics." -Patty
"My cat Sara is 17 1/2, and my vet and I agree, I owe this to you! Thank you for all your help throughout the years.

"Thanks SO much! Again, I am so impressed with the way you run things!" -Matthew
"You are doing a real service. I've always tried to be a conscientious owner, and I've run the gambit on foods. I'm back to science and evidence based, as I always should have been. There's so much misinformation, and it's very nice to see a response from trained expert vet nutritionists." -Adam
"My dog's blood tests came back all over the place with some off the charts high, others off the charts low. My Vet felt disease was to blame, and gave me several possibilites. One year later, using your diet, her blood levels are ALL NORMAL. Thank you so much for the service you offer!!
" -Wendy
"You prescribed a diet for us in 2011 to help oxalate stones. Just wanted you to know that Jake, our pug, has had no recurrence since starting on the diet. There are days when I'd like to toss in the towel and buy commercial food (one of those you suggested), however, he's doing so well, I just don't want to risk it. Thanks again for the diet. We really appreciate your work.
