"I wanted to be part of the Pet Wellbeing Board because I wanted input on the production of products that are needed by my patients. Ethically sourced, quality ingredients formulated with scientific and traditional knowledge are of utmost importance to my patients, my clients and myself. This gives me a chance to influence which formulae are produced and to critique and change existing formulae as the need arises. As a practitioner and a specialist, I see this as an opportunity to partner with a company that wants to make a difference in the lives of my patients."

"Natural supplements are increasingly popular for pets and are often recommended by veterinarians. I remain excited about the prospect of merging the most recent scientific investigations of such products with their traditional uses and indications. A handful of veterinary researchers have begun to study natural compounds and their effects on common diseases with encouraging results. Pet owners deserve strong evidence-based information about the best practices for giving supplements to their animals, and I hope to contribute my experience in the field of integrative medicine."
