About me

Akita Kensho en Barbara It's me… and my Akita dog Kensho

My name is Barbara and I'm the editor of this website and the proud owner of a Japanese Akita dog (formerly known as Akita Inu). My dog is a fussy eater and he's very sensitive as well. This is why I started researching dog food in the first place.

I have a background in biochemistry and health sciences, also I completed a course in dog and cat nutrition (oups… the C-word  ).

I want you to know that I'm not a veterinarian.

It is your responsibility to consult with a licensed, practicing Doctor of Veterinarian Medicine (DVM) (or equivalent in your country) before making any changes to your method of feeding or any other matter of dog care for any dogs for which you have any responsiblity or contribute, in any way, to their care.

Do you have a question about your dog?

Online veterinarians are waiting for your question

I have now partnered with JustAnswer so that you can get an answer ASAP. You can always see how many veterinarians are online, before you submit your question.

  1. Just start typing your question in this box, select 'Dog' from the dropdown list and click on 'Get an Answer'.
  2. You'll be taken to a new page where you can provide more details, such as your dog's age and breed and what you've tried so far (optional).
  3. Next you'll see the profile of the veterinarian that is online and wants to answer your question.

Customer satisfaction is guaranteed! You will have the option to view and "Accept" Experts' answers before agreeing to pay them for their work. Offline veterinarians often charge much more for their services, but… remember that an online vet cannot examine your dog, perform tests or first aid.
