Therapeutic Recipe Formulations

heal through nutrition

Many times various canine conditions and diseases can be successfully supported or managed through nutrition. Therapeutic recipes are created specifically for these instances and may be used in conjunction with herbs and conventional medicine.

Therapeutic recipes often look much different than proactive recipes and a raw diet is not always an option. Currently, I do not formulate for every condition, but rather focus on a few specifics. If your dog’s condition falls outside the realm of my proficiency, we will work together to pair you with another nutrition professional who specializes in that condition or disease.


Conditions I work with include, but are not limited to:

  • Certain heart conditions
  • Pancreatitis
  • Chronic kidney disease
  • Canine cognitive dysfunction
  • Certain cancers
  • Certain inflammatory skin conditions, including food and environmental allergies
  • Arthritis
  • Weight management, with a loss or gain needed >10 lbs.

Working with a veterinary professional is required and instrumental. A detailed health history, including any diagnostics (bloodwork, urinalyses, results of ultrasounds or biopsies, etc.) will need to be provided. All therapeutic protocols include a dedicated time for either a Skype or phone call, during which we will discuss your dog’s history, symptoms, nutritional management/support plan, and specifics for follow-up. A recommendation for a qualified canine herbalist may be given to you.

Therapeutic recipes begin at $100.00. 

Total cost is determined by Chelsea following the receipt of an intake form and discussion with the client to determine depth of case and length of necessary support period.
