Dr. R. Geoffrey Broderick, DVM
Founder of Cornucopia Pet Foods and Author of Compassion for Pets
This is a special half hour broadcast congratulating Dr. Broderick on his 50 years as a Vet. Hear a comprehensive argument based on years of experience on the importance of the quality of food you give your four legged children.
Doc, as he is commonly known, was at the forefront of the natural pet food movement in America by creating products free of chemical additives, artificial colors, flavors, sugars and MSG. “Doc” declared the commencement of this movement at the Health & Nutrition Expo at Madison Square Garden in New York City in the early 70’s.
Dr. Broderick presented a paper titled, “The Cure, Prevention and Control of Cystitis in Cats” and received an award for his work from the Committee for World Health in Palms Springs, California.
This paper described for the first time that acidification with ascorbic acid (vitamin C) of the urine dissolved triple phosphate (struvite) urinary calculi in 16 cats with acute cystitis and prevented bacteria from growing in the urinary tract and the subsequent return of the disease. This work by “Doc” also paved the way for the use of cranberry juice to treat urinary tract infections, thus helping to control and prevent one of the most common disease afflicting women in the United States of America.
The following year Dr. Broderick received an award from the California Orthomolecular Medical Society at their Annual Symposium. Doc presented a paper and demonstrated by time lapse radiography the systematic dissolving of a golf ball size cystolith (urinary bladder stone) for the first time in history.
Dr. Broderick’s award-winning formulas are sold around the world and recognized as the first pet foods that use Preventive Nutrition to actually help prevent disease in animals. Super-food antioxidant and Phyto-food immunity support are two Probiotic formulas that represent the culmination of nearly 50 years of Doc’s veterinary medical practice as well as research and world wide search for the ultimate combination of ingredients to ignite the immune system in cats, dogs and other animals.
This unique approach to nutrition helps pets live longer, healthier lives. “I believe that Preventive Nutrition is the first line of defense against disease and aging and that a perfect diet is one of the best things you can do to secure lasting health for anyone. That’s my promise to you. This is the new paradigm in health care for pets, this is “health assurance,” and this is my gift to my children, the animals of this world.”
