The Vet Behind the Cookbook
Hi, I'm Doctor Dody, DVM!
For me, there was no other career option than dedicating my life to helping animals and their humans. By the time I was 13 years old I was volunteering to clean kennels and bathe dogs as a kennel attendant. All I wanted was to be around animals and to make them happy and healthy.
After practicing traditional medicine for ten years I found many cases were not responding to traditional medications. When I turned to look at diet as a solution, I discovered there were very few options.
I began looking into ways to balance the diet with more of what is essential and leave it to the consumer to choose quality proteins and vegetables, as they would for themselves.
By combining my years of experience in traditional medicine, with my certifications in holistic care, I developed Holistic Vet Blend® to empower the consumer to choose healthy ingredients, whether they are organic, humanely reared, seasonal or local ingredients, and provide the necessary minerals and vitamins to balance them.

From the adorable toy Pomeranian to the charmingly compact Shih Tzu, small dogs captivate us with their boundless personality and charm. Despite their size, these pint-sized pooches boast a relatively high metabolism, which can make them susceptible to low blood sugar. To ensure their well-being, it is crucial to provide them with fresh, nutrient-dense food that offers the perfect balance of protein, fat, carbohydrates, and fiber. Unlike kibble marketed specifically for small breeds, which is essentially the same processed pellet in a smaller size, opting for fresh, moist food is a wise choice. Not only is it easier for mini mouths to enjoy, but it also helps ward off dental diseases that often plague small pups. By nourishing these little companions with wholesome meals, their energy levels can remain sustained throughout the day while promoting optimal dental health.
Between 25 - 55 Pounds
Medium-sized dogs, from the lively Beagle to the majestic Australian Shepherd, deserve exceptional nourishment tailored to their individual needs. Many kibble brands offer generalized serving sizes, failing to consider the variations among medium-sized breeds. Switching to a fresh food plan allows for precise portions, even for dogs between weight categories. It's crucial to know the exact ingredients in their meals, as kibble often hides undisclosed components. Fresh food has proven to alleviate allergy symptoms, leading to happier and healthier medium-sized companions. Let's provide these remarkable dogs with the nutrition they deserve to continue enchanting us with their unique personalities.
Large and XL Dogs Dogs
Big dogs require special attention to their nutrition due to their size and potential health risks. They are more prone to arthritis and certain types of cancer. It is important to manage their weight and avoid processed foods with preservatives. A fresh and wholesome diet that reduces inflammation can help minimize these risks. Fresh vegetables, packed with antioxidants, have been shown to lower the risk of cancer. Unlike kibble and canned food, a fresh diet offers whole vegetables. Prioritizing a diet rich in lightly cooked, whole meats can support the overall well-being of big dogs, particularly their heart health. Let's provide our cherished big dogs with the nutrition they deserve, focusing on fresh ingredients that reduce inflammation and promote their overall health.
