He developed his range of foods and supplements purely from a desire to heal animals.  

He has spent the best part of the last 20 years convincing his clients (and even some colleagues) of the amazing benefits of feeding raw, biologically appropriate foods to dogs and cats (and many other species).  He has always combined nutrition (the basis of all healing) with a vast array of other natural supplements, herbs, and therapies including acupuncture, chiropractic, massage, physio.... and has never been disappointed with the results.
