I’m Hannah! As a certified Canine Nutritionist, I turn to food to keep my dogs vibrant and healthy and prefer to raise them and myself naturally.

My journey with raw food started when I was 6 years old.

We were living in Papua New Guinea at the time. I was the child in the house that was the “dog person” and so I followed my dad as he fed the dogs. It was mostly a base of raw meat, bones, fish, and then whatever leftovers we had for dinner.

I helped him put the food bowls down and watch over the dogs until they were done.

Our dogs were healthy. We never had to see the local vet.

We fed our dogs this way until I was in high school.

Then in 1988, we migrated to Los Angeles, CA. And we saw commercials about Kibble. I remember walking into Walmart looking at the big bags of kibble and choosing the bags with the prettiest photos. I shudder today to think I fed my dogs colored kibble bits.

Fast forward to being an adult and getting my first puppy in 2011.

I have been deeply fascinated with the healing power of food. And I also knew ultra-processed food was not healthy for humans nor for dogs. So I started to feed commercially prepared raw, and even venturing into home-cooked meals.

My first Boston Terrier Zoey never had any health issues. But that wasn’t the case with my second and third who experienced signs of yeast and allergies.

I was determined to use food as their medicine. I knew Apoquel and Cytopoint wasn’t going to be the way to heal them.

And that was the thrust behind deepening my knowledge in canine nutrition and becoming certified through the Companion Animal Sciences Institute. .

Today, you’ll usually find me at home creating new recipes in the kitchen or walking my dogs at our beaches and trails. In my downtime, I’m editing photos on my laptop and writing up new recipes and blog articles.

To me, health starts off with good food. Food contains the information we need to fuel both our bodies and those of our dogs.

As humans, we can confidently feed our children, our family, and each other but we freeze at the thought of creating meals for our own dogs.

There’s a lot of information out there and it always seems to be bookended with “if you don’t do it properly you might hurt your dog”.

It’s a scare tactic.

I’m not buying it.

    I’d love to have you help me with meal plans for my girls. 1 -Jolene 8 years old Treeing walker coonhound mix rescue severe allergies especially the months of November and December. I feed commercial bought complete meals -small batch -bones & co but she cannot survive with out apoquel and I’d love to be able to get her stable enough to stop. Used to feed answers but figuring out fermented wasn’t the way to go for her with allergies
    2. Norma Jeane 6 years old. English foxhound rescue that had a mast cell tumor removed last September. Now we are figuring out why her ALT value remains high. I’ve changed proteins from duck pork and beef to chicken and turkey. Adding in fresh veggies cilantro etc and homecooking intermittently. Otherwise raw fed small batch and bones& co and Darwin’s.
    I don’t feel confident to make the leap on making my own raw foods so that’s where you come in ! Hope you can help. I can purchase online but which pup do you want to start with ?
    Thank you for your time

    Hello Hanna,
    I’m amazed by your story and passion for canine (And human!) natural feeding idea.

    My Jess, almost 7 year old terrier mix is having a terrible allergies since 4 years and to be perfectly honest with you – it’s a struggle to keep her well and far away from drugs you mentioned in your bio…. as she’s adopted she has also this “I’ll eat all from the pavement” syndrome, which also does not help.

    I’d love to pick your brain and chat more, as I feel it’s not a coincidence Your profile just magically popped out on my instagram wall 🙂

    Thanks for sharing your story and be well and healthy.

    All the best,
    Wera & Jess

      Hello Wera and Jess,

      Medication has it’s place and the first priority is the health and wellness of the dog. When they need it – it’s a godsend to them. Food as medicine can help strengthen their immune system. I will write you directly to connect. Kind Regards,

      Hannah
