We all want the best nutrition for our pets so they can live long and healthy lives. However with so many varieties of food & treats on the market, including food scares, making the right choices can be a challenge.

Jami Ippolito, owner of Paw Naturals and pet food guru, will be speaking about Species Appropriate Diets for our dogs and cats. Many pets eat a biologically inappropriate diet which leads to imbalance and inflammation in the body, linked to so many common conditions – like yeast overgrowth or candida, skin issues, allergies, digestive disorders, renal issues, seizures, and cancers. Learn about the foods your pet should be eating, for optimal health and why. We will introduce you to many new categories of pet foods, including Grain Free, Dehydrated & Freeze Dried and Raw. There will be a presentation and a question / answer time. We will also be providing samples for participants to try. This is a FREE one hour class to members of the West Loop Dog Meetup the premier Canine Club of Chicago Party Animals. It is free to join and you do not need to live in the west loop. www.westloopdogmeetup.com, we will have complementary coffee, water & soda
