Shannon Witt

Director of Nutrition

Shannon Witt has worked in the pet industry for 18 years; she was a Veterinary Practice Manager for over 10 & has been feeding her dogs a raw diet for the last decade. After the cancer diagnosis of her 9 yr. old dog Bebe 2 years ago, she began formulating her own homemade raw diet & has watched her not only survive cancer but thrive and become healthier than she has been in years.  Shannon has 3 certifications in Pet Nutrition & is currently working towards a Clinical Pet Nutrition certification as well as Homeopathy & Herbalism. She has a passion for helping dogs live their best, healthiest life possible & her dream is to see dogs return to their ancestral lifespan of 15 – 20 years, not the 8 – 11 they are currently expected to live.


“I think of nutrition like building a house. You cannot build a stable, sturdy house without a strong foundation. Nutrition is the foundation needed to build a strong, sturdy, resilient pet. You cannot make quality repairs to your house without the right tools. Nutritional components are the right tools to repair many illnesses, injuries & neurological issues.”
