Philosophy

A holistic approach to pet health with real food ingredients.

What is 5 Element Pet Food Therapy?

Based on the 5 Element theory of Traditional Chinese Medicine, 5 Element Food Therapy (5EFT) employs a holistic nutritional approach to health and healing for companion animals.

The 5 Element theory of Traditional Chinese Medicine organizes all natural phenomena into five groups - Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, and Water. Each of these groups, or elements, corresponds to various organs and functions of the body, and the interconnected relationships between them. Humans and animals alike experience health issues when an imbalance occurs between the elements. 

By taking into consideration the Elements corresponding to naturally occurring foods, 5EFT has created a wide variety of healthy and delicious products designed to help readjust and maintain balance in your pet’s system through supplements to their regular daily diet. All of 5EFT’s products have been approved by Certified Holistic Veterinarian, Dr. Anne Reed.


Earth

Supports healthy digestion. Unexpected weight gain or weight loss, decreased appetite, diarrhea, vomiting, and poor coat are often symptoms of digestive issues. If your pet is experiencing any of these symptoms, introducing supplements from our Earth Element line into their daily diet may provide the digestive support they need.
