We learned on Sesame Street, that we are what we eat. The same holds true for your dog. Many health problems can be traced back to feeding inappropriate diets. These are diets that do not meet an individual animal’s nutritional needs. For an animal to be truly healthy, they need to have their nutritional needs met.
There is no one universal right diet. Dogs have different nutritional needs, and the people that feed them have different lifestyle preferences and limitations.

Chinese Food Therapy refers to selecting food ingredients and herbs to feed each individual based upon their specific needs.
