During her fourth year of veterinary school in the spay/neuter clinical rotation (almost Dr.) Tiffany Diab was adopted by a young pup that suffered from skin infections, vomiting, and diarrhea.
Like many of her clients, after two years of feeding a popular sensitive skin and stomach dry kibble and using medicated shampoos, sprays, topicals, omega-3’s, and antibiotics, her pup’s symptoms were only getting worse.
This started Dr. Tiffany’s investigative journey into finding better, more natural ways to approach disease.
The transition wasn’t easy. The first time Rosie ate a raw diet she puked it all back up. Dr. Tiffany had to learn that the transition from a processed kibble to a raw food takes time and inner healing. She also had to spend hundreds of hours learning the ways to facilitate this inner healing, since little to no alternative medicine is taught in veterinary school.
Dr. Tiffany also faced professional challenges to her approach. Her first job out of school was with a practice that focused primarily on symptom control with injectable steroids and antibiotics.
But soon, Rosie began to improve with her efforts. Spurred on by the lessons Rosie taught her and the demands of her newer role as a mother (to human children), Dr. Tiffany has continued to learn daily how best to naturally support healing and repair in her family and her patients.
Since 2017 she has completed post-graduate courses in Veterinary Medical Acupuncture, Veterinary Chinese Herbal Medicine, Chinese Food Therapy, Animal Chiropractic, and nutritional therapy, and is currently pursuing her Applied Clinical Nutrition certification.
She spends additional hours training in Crossfit as well as co-running a recipe blog focused on delicious food free of dairy, grains, and processed sugar.
