Vendor Highlight: Nugget's Healthy Eats

Posted by Holly Everett on May 2, 2017 10:43:51 AM

Dayna Guzik's passion for pet health started with her own pup, Nugget. After her golden retriever/lab mix beat liver cancer at the age of 11, she began adjusting his diet to be kidney friendly, including foods that were high in quality protein, potassium, Omega fatty acids and low in phosphorus and sodium. To further help his aging body and mind, she began making her own bone broth and yogurt snacks for Nugget, rich in antioxidants and nutrients that provided a daily boost to his immune system. Serving them to Nugget frozen released "feel good" endorphins that helped sooth him into his later years.
