When Bruno the chocolate lab was found after 27 days in the bottom of an abandoned well, Dr. Jackie Parr was one of the people he desperately needed.

Refeeding syndrome, muscle loss, dangerously fluctuating electrolyte levels and more were all part of a language Dr. Parr intimately understood. After 14 years of specialized veterinary nutritional study, Bruno was exactly the kind of patient she had been preparing for.

And that’s how it’s always been for Dr. Jackie Parr: complete emersion in the science of veterinary nutrition as a means to an important end – for all the Bruno’s of the world.
