Michaela Morton |Student with Animal Care College – Caring for people caring for animals
It’s every pet owner’s nightmare to have a sick animal and feel at the mercy of differing advice and dietary needs, made worse when you don’t fully understand what is going on and more so when they refuse to eat the prescription diet food. This is the position I found myself in. I made it my mission to get myself educated to learn about what makes up a fully balanced diet and teaching myself to apply that to the clinical needs of the individual animal through sound tuition and my own individual research. I found my passion.
Whilst working full time as a manager for an insurance company, I have studied in almost every moment of my spare time for the last 4 and a half years to forward my education on nutrition for dogs and cats.
I now have a diploma with merits in Professional Canine Studies from Oxford Learning College, a distinction pass in diet formulation for dogs from scratch to the NRC guidelines from private tuition and have now been awarded a distinction pass in Advanced Nutrition for Dogs and Cats with The Animal Care College.
My passion is clinical nutrition for dogs and formulation of clinical recipes using fresh foods to the guidelines laid down by the National Research Council and with each recipe adjusted to the clinical condition and energy requirements of the individual animal.
Seeing the difference optimal and individual nutrition can make to the life of just one beloved pet and its owner makes it all worthwhile.
