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

Monty & Mazzi Owner: Mariana

I cannot recommend the services of The Healthy Barker enough! They go above and beyond to help provide my fur babies with nutritious, well balanced meals! Delivery is always prompt, and when needed, Martina has worked with me to customize a diet based on my dog and cat’s allergies, health concerns and dietary needs.

Emma Owner: Laura

I switched my dogs over to The Healthy Barker, which was a healthier choice for my babies. I love that she delivers right to the door within a week of ordering. I would highly recommend The Healthy Barker.

Willow Owner: Debra

Willow loved the food. Needless to say, Willow now eats only The Healthy Barker, with much enthusiasm at her meals times – no more finicky eater. I would highly recommend The Healthy Barker.

Linus Owner: Lise K

Since being on Simply Rawvenous, Linus's appetite has improved so much. He has lots of energy and is so happy. I highly recommend The Healthy Barker!
