Meet Cheshire native Julia! Learn all about our newest team member’s background, her pets, and her dog’s favorite NPP toy.
I recently attended the 2023 Veterinary Meeting & Expo (VMX) in Orlando, Fl. and came back with a treasure trove of science and information we can use to help improve the health and wellness of our pets.
What brought you to NPP?
I started as a Veterinary Receptionist in 2018 with hopes of becoming a Certified Vet Technician, although I ended up working at an animal shelter in various positions. I ended up as a Foster Coordinator where I was helping care for homeless and sick pets waiting to be available for adoption. Many of these sick pets had skin infections, diarrhea, or joint issues, and although our vets helped them with prescriptions, I wanted to do more in the way of nutrition. We saw pets thrive on things like omega oils, pumpkin, and glucosamine and thus began my curiosity in pet nutrition!
Tell us about your pets…
My boys are all rescues from having worked at a vet/shelter for a few years. My pekingese Kingsley was “adopted” in 2019 when a client couldn’t afford his medical care (dry eye,16 teeth removed, and anemic) so I took him home that day on a whim. Ferguson my dollfaced Persian is my first cat adopted at the beginning of 2020 and at the end of 2020 I rescued Bean from a Louisiana hoarding case with over 160 dogs. They are all sweet mamas boys![vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”9019″]– Bean[vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”9020″]– Kingsley[vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”9021″]– Ferguson
Tell us your must-have item from NPP.
Glucosamine is a must have item in my house because I’ve always had senior dogs. With having rescued them I got to see them transform and be more active after being on glucosamine, it is so rewarding!
What are your pets’ favorite treats or toys?
My little dog only has 5 teeth left so his favorite is probably goats milk, but my big dog loves anything to chew on. We give him raw bones, bully sticks, and fish skins for enrichment on the weekends.
What’s your favorite product to recommend and why?
Goats milk is a product I always recommend because there are so many benefits, and pets love it! I love that we have different flavors like blueberry for antioxidants or pumpkin for even better gut health.
What is the most FAQ that you get?
I get a lot of questions about what is the longest-lasting chew for dogs, which I can relate to having a Pitbull who destroys chews in seconds. I always recommend antlers, water buffalo horns, or Himalayan chews.
I’m so grateful to have been able to present at not one, but TWO international veterinary conferences recently in Helsinki, Finland for the University of Helsinki and in Barcelona, Spain for the Raw Feeding Veterinary Society.
The first conference was at the University of Helsinki for the annual DogRisk seminar. There, panelists shared their research related to the conference theme of “How to keep an aging dog healthy.”
My presentation was on “Differently processed dog foods and their research.” In it, I discussed raw and processed pet foods, what the pet food industry is doing right, and what it can improve.
It was truly an honor to have worked with such notable professionals![vc_single_image image=”8715″ img_size=”full” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_outline” border_color=”black”][vc_single_image image=”8931″ img_size=”full” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_outline” border_color=”black”]What an unforgettable week of travel, science, and seeing old friends.
On my way back to the University of Georgia, I took time to reflect on the significance of this overseas trip.
Five years ago, I would have never imagined attending an international pet nutrition conference — let alone being invited to serve as a panelist and present my research in front of a global audience.
That journey has been remarkable.
It’s taken a whole lot of hard work…
Not taking no for an answer…
Not being afraid to take risks…
