Knoxville, TN – Susan Lauten is the founder of Pet Nutrition Consulting, where she offers compassionate, evidence-based nutrition advice to pet owners to help achieve optimal nutrition for dogs and cats for their pets.
Through custom-tailored nutrition analysis of your pet’s current feeding program, Susan can formulate diets for healthy dogs and cats, as well as sick dogs and cats who need a prescription diet.
There's an awful lot of people who think of their pets as family members. I know I do. My pets are my family, my children,” says Susan. “My goal is help pets have a better life.”
How long have dogs eaten dog food? It’s probably a question you’ve never considered. Dog food actually only dates back to World War II to conserve resources, and kibble was originally meant for both dogs and cats. Eighty years later, dogs are still eating dog food.
Susan’s dogs eat home-cooked food: beef or chicken, frozen vegetables, oatmeal, vitamins and minerals.
“Dogs used to live to 20 and 21, but they don't live that long anymore, do they?” says Susan. “When they ate off the table, they lived longer.”
And because most veterinarians lack a thorough background in nutrition, Pet Nutrition Consulting also works with veterinarians to provide optimal nutrition to address your pet family’s health problems.
“Visiting the veterinarian is stressful. It's stressful for your pet. They don't know where they're going. So let’s reduce those visits,” says Susan. “I love what I do, and I'm blessed to be able to do it.”
