What Is Preventive Nutrition? At it's core, Preventive Nutrition is a holistic perspective that emphasizes dietary practices and interventions shown to reduce disease risk and improve health outcomes. The state of Global Health has changed much since Dr. Broderick began his nutritional studies at Kansas State University in 1969. At that time, Dr. Broderick participated in the first ever public health classes dedicated to nutrition for either humans or animals. Led by Dr. Russell Frey, considered one of the founders of nutritional education in America, Dr. Broderick embraced the teachings of his mentor, and has dedicated his life to building upon Frey's solid foundation. Today, Dr. Broderick continues to push the boundaries of nutritional science to provide pets with the ultimate paradigm for health, wellness, longevity and a life free of disease.
In his quest to improve the lifespan and quality of life of the pets he cares for as a practicing veterinarian, Dr. Broderick has traveled the globe in search of the right mix of organic, natural, wild-caught, and GMO-free plants, proteins, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. His extensive studies and search have led him to embrace the wellness benefits of ingredients like Chelated Minerals, Seaweed (kelp), Spirulina (mircoalgae), Ginkgo Biloba, Lactobacillus Acidophilus (pro-biotics), Bioflavonoids, and many more. Additionally, his research led Doc to adopt organic and/or wild caught standards for all animal and vegetable ingredients, and take a stand against the practice of Genetic Modification (GMOs).
Additionally, Dr. Broderick has spent the last 50 years of practice developing the ultimate feeding paradigm for Dogs and Cats. More than feeding your pets the right ingredients in the right volumes, how you feed your animals is of primary importance. Doc's feeding paradigm most closely mimics the eating habits of animals in the wild, and includes notes on timing, portion size, ingredients, grazing habits and the special needs of puppies, kittens and nursing mothers.
