I am so excited to have found Martina and The Healthy Barker. As a small animal veterinarian in the Waterloo region, I was keen to find someone who would work with a veterinary nutritionist to make sure home made meals were nutritionally complete. Who has time to do that at home? With Inflammatory bowel disease and allergies increasing in frequency, it can be challenging to find commercial diets that meet all a pet’s needs. I have been feeding our puppy Maggie the Healthy Barker puppy food and she loves it. Even more important is how good you feel as a pet owner when your feeding a nutritious, balanced, gently cooked and whole food diet. Thank you so much Martina, you have been amazing to work with. Sincerely, Barb Eddy, DVM
