As a young dog Kona was always healthy; aside from a history of hip dysplasia, we never had much to worry about with her. We fed her what we thought was “good-quality” kibble, and she seemed to be doing well. However, as with many dogs, the years of eating processed, unnatural dog food slowly caught up with her. By the age of seven, she became disinterested in her food; finding creative ways to get her to eat became a daily ritual. What we didn’t know at the time was that she had developed GI issues. We thought her horrible belching, flatulence and endless snoring were just normal dog quirks, not realizing they were actually symptoms of underlying digestive problems. Over the next few years her symptoms became more severe, to include repeated episodes of regurgitating undigested meals, hours after eating.
After several tests we were still unable to find the cause of her GI issues. Being a senior dog, we didn’t want to put her through more invasive testing. We also didn’t want to keep her on medications that were only addressing the symptoms, not the root cause; so we began looking into homeopathic and dietary methods to help Kona. Through research we stumbled upon raw feeding and learned more about the power of natural fresh foods. With nothing to lose, we switched to a 100% raw, species appropriate diet and began using whole foods like bone broth and Turmeric Golden Paste, to help heal her gut. Within months of the switch, Kona’s gastric issues were gone! She stopped regurgitating, gas is (thankfully) a thing of the past, and most surprisingly, she sleeps through the night without a single snore.
Throughout our raw feeding journey we have met other pets suffering with illness and complications standard veterinary medicine could not fix. My Konavore was created in efforts to contribute to the raw feeding movement, help pet parents become more aware of the food they are feeding their pets, and teach how food affects their pet’s optimal health.
From one-on-one consultations, to sourcing and prepping meals, we provide a full hands on approach to you and your pet. We believe all pets deserve the best possible diet to thrive. Pet parents deserve honest and accurate information when creating their pet’s diet. We dedicate ourselves to our clients to personally know them, their lifestyle, as well as their pet’s needs and requirements.
My Konavore Artisan Meals provides your pet with a balanced species-appropriate diet to provide the necessary tools to increase immunity and decrease the risk of disease/illness. Our meals are tailored to individual needs – no recipes, no cookie cutter meals, all meals are custom! When you feed your pet raw, you’re paving a path to a healthy, vibrant, and thriving life for many years.
Traditionally, with commercial food the source location is unknown. Did it come from China? What animal parts were used? We firmly believe all pet parents should know what they are feeding their pet, 100% transparency. Here at My Konavore, we have nothing to hide.
All of our suppliers are sourced from local farms and ranches within 150 miles of San Antonio, Texas. We maintain strong relationships with our ranchers and farmers in our efforts to utilize all parts of livestock, nose-to-tail. Our meat products are all natural and human-grade; from the same meat suppliers you find in SATX’s best restaurants. We also make every effort to source from ranches committed to animal welfare and sustainable practices. All produce is farmed at local organic farms. True farm to bowl feeding for your pet!
