The Well Balanced Paw was founded out of a personal journey to give my own pets the happiest, healthiest life possible.
Over 20 years ago, I sat helpless night after night researching ways to help my pets with a myriad of health issues. One had skin troubles, another gut issues, and another, cancer. It was an exhausting process, but when my efforts started to enhance their quality of life, this became more than a personal effort. I wanted to share my success with others struggling with the same issues.
My beagle, Nala (the dog in our logo) wasn't supposed to live more than 10 years, but she lived well into old age and was a rambunctious senior citizen, jumping for the leash every time she knew she was going for a walk.
In order to further my knowledge, I studied small animal massage therapy in Boston and graduated in 2017. I mentored with several veterinarians, and they helped me gain considerable knowledge and experience. In addition, just like with humans, quality food is of utmost importance to overall pet health and and have learned how to complement veterinary care with quality supplements and alternative therapies.
