Meet Animal Expert, Lauren Peralta
Lauren is a young woman with a true passion for animals. She has kept many pets over the years and has intimate knowledge of their needs both emotionally and physically. She loves that her dogs keep her so active and satisfy her desire to spend lots of time in nature.
Lauren also enjoys reading about topics that pertain to animal intelligence and the connections that can be forged between humans and animals or between animals of different species. She is highly susceptible to cute animal clickbait, especially heartwarming stories of animal adoption.
Whenever a friend needs advice about a sticky situation with their pet, Lauren is their go-to source. She is adept at research and able to find quality sources to support her own experience.
Lauren always advises that people consult their veterinarian to confirm her findings. She also suggests that pet owners inform the professionals who provide care to their animals on any topics they feel show room for improvement. The care of your pet is a joint effort and must be undertaken with a spirit of togetherness to ensure your animals receives the best emotional, nutritional, and physical care.
Lauren also enjoys reading historical fiction novels and cooking at home with her partner. One of her favorite activities is traveling to water with her dogs, Petey, Ralph, and Sage. Petey is a pit mix, Ralph is a lovable mixed breed, and Sage is a black labrador retriever. Each of them are rescues and they seem to appreciate having a new lease on life with Lauren.
Occasionally, Lauren cooks meals for her furry family to provide some variety in their diet. She believes in feeding a nutritious base diet without a lot of fillers and favors dry dog food over wet. Adding some home cooking to a dog’s life can provide enrichment, but Lauren cautions strongly against feeding table scraps that can be unsafe and promote unwanted behavior in pets.
