Cuisine-a-crocs.com a unique e-nutrition web service

Creator of tailor-made recipes, in 2008 she founded the first Cuisine-a-crocs.com site.

On the site, owners of dogs and cats in good health, and veterinarians (all situations for their patients) can obtain tailor-made recipes for feeding dogs and cats, whether their food is industrial (kibble +/- boxes) or household (meat / fish + supplement of minerals and vitamins + oil + vegetables +/- starchy) or mixed (half croquettes and / or pâté, and half housewife with meat and vegetables), without or with side dishes and treats…

As of 2008, Dr. Blanchard calculates all the recipes, one by one, manually.

Step by steps, she has develops unique algorithms, and modelized situations, in 2011 for dogs and cats with no health issue, then in 2014 for a few pathological situations ...

In 2020, A BIG JUMP... After 2 and a half years of intense development, the new cuisine-a-crocs site is launched:
* all recipes, all situations are now available, even for growth or for weight loss, and most situations with one or sometimes several special health issue
* Household rations are available without or with a little or average carbs, to adapt to the variety of populations, canine & feline.
*For the first time, you can ask for a recipe for the day with a kibble part and a household part, the whole being balanced.

But what is the site not doing? If you want a household recipe, the ingredients offered are those possible for the animal characteristics.

If you want a recipe with kibble and canned food, we will use the information available but, as it is not possible to get the composition in all the nutrients (not supplied by the manufacturers), we cannot tell you if you are making The good choice. The quantity is calculated to maintain the optimal weight, but the site does not judge the adaptation of the food chosen for your animal, it is your responsibility.

If you choose half kibble/cannedfood + half household, we balance the whole to cover the needs in calories (for an optimal weight), in proteins, but we are obliged to assume a good balance in minerals and vitamins of the kibbles, and we can tell you what that it takes to properly balance the household part with meat and Vit'i5, oil and vegetables ...

These recipes can never replace a veterinary consultation, so if in doubt, do not hesitate. Your veterinarian can always contact us if necessary.
