“I was hesitant about The CrockPET Diet® at first, but over the years it has transformed Gulliver into a dog with hardly any health problems. He lost 10 pounds and is a happier, healthier pup overall. All this progress without a single invasive prescription – just a simple food swap! We thank you from the bottom of our hearts!”
Julie, Gulliver’s Owner

Where do I begin? First, the staff at Sun Dog Cat Moon is incredible! Caring, compassionate, and very friendly. Second, the veterinarians have always been very accommodating and quick to respond to our needs. We never feel rushed or like we are part of some systematic process. The style and approach of the veterinarians and technicians at each visit is very reassuring and welcoming. Our pups respond so positively to everyone, and I even think they look forward to seeing everyone!

Mike & Heather, Dog Owners

Our cat, Sabrina, is nearly twenty-one years old and still healthy and doing well because of the alternative care options available from Sun Dog Cat Moon Veterinary Clinic. Sabrina presented with total kidney failure four years ago, and SDCM saved her life when other vets recommended euthanizing Sabrina. Sabrina stays happy and healthy by eating the CrockPET Diet® with natural supplements!

Penelope Jean, Sabrina’s Owner

What is a homemade diet?

A homemade diet combines vegetables, meats, and supplements, to support your pet’s organ function and overall health. Switching to a homemade diet gives you the opportunity to customize your pet’s nutrition to better manage the symptoms of obesity, allergies, diabetes, arthritis, cancer, and more. Take a more proactive stance on your pet’s health by giving them an optimal nutrition plan!

Why make my pet's food at home?

Homemade pet diets allow you to feed your pets whole, human-food-grade quality unprocessed vegetables and meat, while avoiding additives and indigestible filler products found in commercial pet foods. You can customize your pet’s foods to meet their special needs and add supplements to boost their kidney function, gut flora, and more!

Are Homemade Diets Expensive?

The cost of homemade diets and supplements is comparable to a high quality commercial pet food. Cleaner eating and better nutrition means your pet is less prone to illness and disease, leading to fewer medical costs and a healthier, happier pet!

Benefits of Homemade Diets and Supplements

Know exactly what goes into your pet’s body

Don’t worry about fillers, pesticides, or other unsavory additives in your pet’s food. When you’re creating your pet’s meals from scratch, you can rest assured you are feeding your pet the most nutritious foods possible.

Improve your pet’s overall health

An optimal diet enriched with supplements is bound to improve your pet’s health, both external and internal! Using a home-cooked diet can also promote healing after an illness, injury, or surgery.

Help manage your pet’s weight

You can best manage your pet’s symptoms of being overweight or underweight by switching to a nutritious diet. Our homemade diets focus on unprocessed meats and vegetables to promote healthy digestion.

No need to worry about food recalls

Commercial pet foods are sometimes subject to recalls after being tainted with salmonella or hormones. When you produce your pet’s food yourself, you are relieved of the burden of worrying about these recalls.
