Wizardry Lesson # 11 - Part Two of The Basics
In this lesson, I break down Rule # Two of How to Feed Your Cat into three components, and explain how each component comes together to create this rule, outlining the importance of each one as I go. This includes the reason why you should only used identified animal sources in your cat's diet, why you should ensure the protein is coming from those animals and not plant-based protein boosters, and why it's highly unlikely you are going to "overdo" the amount of protein in your cat's diet.

Wizardry Lesson # 10 - What the heck should I feed my cat? Part One - The Basics
With so many sources of conflicting, misleading (and let's face it, bad) advice out there on what the best food is, it's no wonder we as pet owners get overwhelmed, confused, or frustrated when trying to determine what to feed our cats. I'm going to make it simple. In this episode, I will provide you with five, universally applicable, simple rules to follow when choosing a diet for your cat. These rules are based not only on personal and professional experience with animal nutrition, but on years of studies and research, confirming what many of us possibly suspected all along. In this five part lesson, I will go over the rules, and then begin delving into them, one by one, starting with the first, and most important nutrition rule for cats!

Minisode II - Bunnies Part Two!
My second Minisode! I did go a bit over ten minutes here, with my intro and recap, but I did try to keep it pretty short while not missing anything important. So this Minisode is just under 12 minutes, and I wrap up my bunny nutrition lessons with some additional guidance on bunny care, a little dive into the bunny's digestive system, and the reasons to avoid an overweight bun-bun πŸ‡

Wizardry Lesson # 9 - Who the heck regulates our pet food?

Don't skip this one - it's not as simple or as boring as it may sound! Regulations and legislation can make our eyes glaze over sometimes, but my mission is to keep you in the know about all things related to pet nutrition so you can be a Wizard! And this is a huge factor in whether your pet food is safe and complete. Please reach out for any additional questions at my Facebook page! :)

Wizardry Lesson # 8 - What the heck is CBD Oil, and when should I use it?
In this in-depth episode on CBD and how it works I give a shout out to a listener in Australia, explain what CBD does and why it's safe and effective, as well as which ones you should stay away from, and which ones I trust. At the time of recording this episode I make a recommendation for Pet Releaf, Petabis, and Charlotte's Web. I also explain when you CBD Oil is a good idea, and when it's not, as well as the benefits of a Liposomal Oil. If you already feel confident about CBD Oil, you might still enjoy this episode and learn something new! Do you know what Terpenes are? How about hemp's relation to Chernobyl? Do you want to hear me stumble over the word 'endocannabinoid'? Then you've come to the right place.
