Chi Dog Launches
Chi Dog introduces fresh, whole-food recipes centered around Eastern Medicine philosophy and healing food therapy practices, customized to your dog’s personal Chi element.
The First Veterinarian-Owned, Personalized Fresh-Food Delivery Brand made to Improve your Dog’s Health
Claremont, CA, November 1st, 2018 – Founders Dr. Susan Bohrer and Dr. Chris Berg are excited to announce the launch of Chi Dog – the first and only fresh food brand for dogs that is developed, operated and owned by veterinarians.
Chi Dog uses integrative medicine, fusing a balance between Western and Eastern Medicine, to improve your dog’s health through real food nutrition. Using only human-grade meats, fresh vegetables and whole grains – the recipes follow the practice of Food Energetics, established by the Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM) Food Therapy guidelines. All recipes are mindfully crafted to your dog’s Chi Element and are formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO Dog Food Nutrient Profiles for all life stages.
The Chi Dog promise is to utilize the healing power of food therapy as an alternative to processed dog foods by using Eastern Medicine principles to customize diets to balance and heal your dog.
“We are so pleased to be able to share these amazing healing diets with all dog owners,” comments Dr. Susan co-founder of Chi Dog, “patients whose owners agreed to transition them to a fresh cooked diet improved their dog’s lives tremendously, and we could see it, in the exam room, they literally looked better.”
Eastern Medicine focuses on balance in the body by using the 5 Elements – Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water – and Yin & Yang to prevent disease and heal. Human and animal health are influenced by each element; and every dog has a unique set of personality traits that aligns with one of these elements. By taking a questionnaire on the Chi Dog website, customers can identify their dog’s personal Chi Element, ensuring that they receive the most beneficial of the 5 diets for their type.
Dr. Susan Bohrer has been a practicing veterinarian for 14 years. As Dr. Bohrer began studying and practicing Chinese Medicine Food Therapy, she began seeing immense improvements in her patient’s health. Certified in veterinary acupuncture, she has been integrating Eastern Medicine therapies alongside her partner, Dr. Chris Berg, at their practice for the past 9 years. Dr. Berg has been a small animal practice owner and veterinarian for 16 years. Traditionally trained in Western Medicine, Dr, Berg became a believer in elemental principles after witnessing the positive effects that Dr, Bohrer was achieving. Together, through the implementation of a freshly-cooked natural food diet personalized to their patient’s Chi element, in tandem with traditional treatments, the duo successfully healed their patients.
“Feeding real foods, which are balanced to your dog, is the single greatest thing you can do to improve your dog’s health. On a daily basis, we see tons of pets, all presenting for different issues, and it’s outstanding to us how many of those problems could simply have been prevented by a better diet,” says Chris Berg.
