Gail Roberts has heard it from nearly every segment of the pet industry. Veterinarians, trainers, animal behaviorists alike are seeing more instances of cancer, food allergies and skin and coat problems in our domesticated dogs and cats. The reason, she says, is Americans overreliance on processed commercial pet foods.
Last October, Roberts started a unique catering service in San Diego and with it a crusade to get San Diego pet owners to start thinking healthy when it comes to their pets nutritional needs. CRITTER CUISINE to the rescue!!
At an early age, Roberts learned the connection between a pets healthy diet and its overall well-being. Her father, a respected veterinarian in England, steadfastly urged his clients to avoid processed foods for their pets. Nearly five decades later, the vets daughter has turned practical advice into a common-sense business, which she describes as "custom catering for canines and cats."
And San Diego pets are eating it up. For a very reasonable fee (a minimum of $25 per week, more depending on the size of your pet family and their dietary needs), Roberts prepares a two-week batch of individually portioned meals freezer ready made of only "healthy, wholesome people-quality pet food" and delivers it to your home or office. If a client requests only organic foods, shes only happy to oblige.
Theres plenty to consider when it comes to your pet's nutrition:
"Were always saying, We are what we eat. Well, its the same for our pets," Roberts explains. "We are their guardians, and they deserve to be as happy and healthy as possible."
Not to mention what youre likely to save monetarily in fewer trips to the vet for nutrition-related medical problems.
Roberts says she prepares most of her pet meals in a 75/25 mix, that is 75 percent meat and 25 percent vegetable on the premise that in the wild dogs and cats would feed on vegetable-consuming animals.
