Our Philosophy

Dr. Jodie has made it her mission is to encourage the integration of natural foods and remedies into pet health care.


"Too many pets are developing severe allergies and cancer. Their immune systems are severely compromised due to excessive vaccinations, processed food nutrition and toxic environments," she says.


Dr. Jodie is available to speak to small and large venues to explain this concern.


To facilitate this mission she has formulated a unique line of natural pet products. Each product fulfills a needed niche. Since Dr. Jodie relies on raw diets for food therapy, she needed single source meat protein treats with NO starch. There weren't any; so she decided to formulate her own. The result is ...



There are many gaps in the natural pet industry. Dr. Jodie's N-Trail Mix is a delicious blend of crunchy, freeze-dried organ bits which fill a functional food need and delight the most finicky carnivores! Furfume is a 100% essential oil coat spray which pet parents say smells fabulous and they prefer vs. spot-on products. 


Watch for continued growth in Dr. Jodie's product collection as she develops new ways to meet the needs of dogs and cats and their naturally-minded pet parents.


Dr. Jodie grew up on a hobby farm and is very understanding of the needs of today's pet parents as she is one herself!


Dr. Jodie enjoys caring for her own many rescued dogs and cats. She is a member of many veterinary associations, Elmbrook Church, attends Scottsdale Bible Church and she is a gluten-free vegetarian!
