Just Food For Dogs recently announced the addition of Dr. Oscar E. Chavez, DVM to their Canine Nutrition team. Dr. Chavez will serve in the capacities of staff veterinarian and Professor of canine clinical nutrition.
Just Food For Dogs makes all their food from USDA certified ingredients for human consumption. The company adds the necessary nutrients to make the meals complete and balanced. Some of the team members on the Just Food for Dogs team include a veterinarian, nutritionist, pet chef, and a variety of dogs and dog lovers.
Dr. Chavez reported, “Over half of the dogs in this country experience some form of health issues and many of these can be addressed through diet. Canine nutrition is of the utmost importance in both keeping your dog healthy and when their health is challenged. At a time when pet parents are becoming more aware of the importance of nutrition in their dog’s lives, the need for this type of expertise is exceeding the availability of expert knowledge, products and services. I’m thrilled to join the team at JustFoodForDogs as we help fill this void by specializing in the formulation of custom diets using whole foods and supplement blends. Our team works in conjunction with our client’s veterinarian and we have successfully addressed obesity, digestive disorders, pancreatitis, cancer, food allergies, diabetes, liver and kidney disease. Our goal is to raise awareness of the importance of canine nutrition and bring a simple, fast and affordable solution to as many pet parents and their dogs as possible.”
Dr. Chavez is a graduate of the Royal Veterinary College in London, United Kingdom. He holds a Bachelor of Veterinary Medicine (BVetMed), a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM), and is a Member of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (MRCVS). Additionally, he teaches several undergraduate courses within the College of Agriculture’s Animal Science and Animal Health Science curricula at California State Polytechnic University, Pomona
