Let food by they medicine.Libby received her BS in Equine Nutrition and a minor in business from Colorado State University in 1993. Personal health challenges fueled her appetite for learning about nutrition and diet which she naturally applied to animals with stunning results. She now has a certification as a companion animal dietician, a clinical veterinary nutritionist and certified pet food specialist. She has written articles for several journals on both equine & companion animal health and strongly believes in species appropriate feeding. Libby is available for hire to speak to groups, kennels, shelters and classes on species appropriate diets, the pet food industry, how to decipher labels, and raw feeding. After observing how a pet owner's appreciation for proper nutrition ignited a need for diet change in themselves, Libby became a certified Integrated Nutrition health & diet coach for people. She attends the Dogs Naturally Raw Round-Up Food Conference annually and volunteers with several local non-profits.
