Valentine’s Day Special Dinner

Happy Valentine’s Day!

At Full Circle Veterinary Alternatives, we know you want to do something really special for your furry friends this Valentine’s. After all who is your best friend?  Dr. Bishop asked Hilary Watson to formulate a special East Coast dinner for our pets. With a little help from Chef Blaze, the recipe was tested in January and met with resounding approval from the taster canine, Poppet.  Every one in Dartmouth, Halifax, Bedford, Truro, Wolfville, Chester Basin and so on… get cooking!  It’s easy and you will be so popular!!!!

81 kcal/100gCa:P 1.32 to 1* This is quite a low calorie diet because lobster is a very low fat meat and the Meal Maker is not high in calories either.  Adjusting the oils would skew the omega 6-3 ratios so to meet your dog’s caloric needs you will need to feed more of this diet.
