Pet X Talks – Dr. Janice Elenbaas – What Does Holism Mean?
We often hear the term Holism when it comes to pet foods and yet, many are not familiar with what it actually means. Additionally, how does it apply to our pets and their health?
Dr. Janice Elenbaas, found of Lucky Dog Cuisine gives us a Pet X Talk that answers that question and many others in regards to holism and a holistic approach.
About Dr. Janice Elenbaas
Lucky Dog Cuisine came to be as an act of love for my own dogs. I believe in eating wholesome, natural, unprocessed food. My dogs are part of my family so I feed them the same quality foods I eat myself. I love to cook … and to eat! So as a labor of love, I chose to cook for my dogs.
In 1995 I had a two year old Standard Poodle named Storm, diagnosed with Addison’s disease. At the time, in addition to conventional veterinarian therapies, I was looking for any additional help I could give her. I researched what was in dog food and had an eye opening experience. I refuse to feed my dogs anything that I would not eat myself!
The idea of making Lucky Dog available to the general public was long in coming. My butcher, Jeff Scott at Scott’s Meats in Old Bluffton, South Carolina, was adamant that other people around here really needed this product. He was so impressed with it that he is even offering Lucky Dog for sale at his store. The name, by the way, came naturally. Every time someone asked me about what I feed my dogs, I told them what was in it and the response was always, “Wow! What Lucky Dogs!”
At that point I started to experiment with home cooked recipes. Storm became my personal study. Within months of feeding my home cooked recipes to her I noticed a number of changes in her as she seemed to regain her pre-diagnosis energy and vitality.
My beautiful black Standard had turned very grey after the onset of her disease. I sent her to the groomer one day and she returned with her coat a dark beautiful black again. All of the grey had grown out and she looked great. I actually cried I was so excited at her return to health. Stormy lasted 10 more great years before she passed away. A wonderful full life for an Addisonian dog.
It is with great pride that Bugsy and I have teamed up to bring you the finest all natural gourmet dog food you can buy.
Yours in good health,
Dr. Janice Elenbaas
