Narelle Cooke, Naturopath, nutritionist and herbalist

Narelle Cooke is a degree qualified clinical naturopath, nutritionist, and herbalist for both people and pets based in Sydney Australia. Narelle is also the founder and Managing Director of the nutritional supplement range CanineCeuticals.

Narelle began her career 25 years ago as a research pathologist in the agricultural industry, before moving on to work as a Regulatory Affairs Associate for an international agrochemical company. During this time Narelle developed a deep, first-hand understanding of the effect that pathogens and environmental toxins have on our food, our bodies and consequently, our health.  It was this knowledge that motivated Narelle to commence her studies in natural medicine.

Being a lifelong dog-owner and currently meeting the demands of three French Bulldogs, a German Shepherd, a Rottweiler and a Burmese cat, Narelle is as passionate about the health and wellbeing of our pets as she is about their owners. And it was this strong desire to see her own pets live their longest and best lives that led her to hours of additional study and formal qualifications in natural animal health and nutrition. 

Narelle is now passionate about educating both pet owners and industry professionals about the importance of nutrition, and how we can no longer ignore how the relationship between food and the body is affecting the health and behaviour of our dogs.
