I’ve always been passionate about the health of animals in general and my pets in particular - it’s what led me to become an animal osteopath and physiotherapist. Knowing that dogs and cats are carnivores and need a lot of meat in their diets, I started handcrafting recipes that included freshly prepared, ethically-farmed poultry or fish as the principal ingredient. I avoided gluten, grains and fillers since these can cause inflammation, stiff joints and digestive problems. Instead, I used my knowledge of ancient Celtic remedies and cures and added a mixture of healthy fruits and vegetables and more herbs than are found in other pet foods to help restore and maintain natural health and vitality. I also added glucosamine, chondroitin and MSM, to keep joints comfortable and organs functioning at their best for a long, active life. I created Celtic Connection because I could find no other pet food on the market which provided the level of nutrition and natural synergy I wanted for my pets. This food is a labour of love, made for people who love their pets.
