Juliet M. Getty, Ph.D. has been working with horse owners for more than 25 years. A pioneer in free choice forage feeding, Dr. Getty’s philosophy is founded on feeding a horse in sync with his natural needs and instincts. She approaches equine health from a holistic perspective and considers nutrition a critical (and too often overlooked) element in the prevention and treatment of disease and disorders. Her unbiased opinions and recommendations are based on scientific research and are independent of feed, supplement, or pharmaceutical company influence.
Through private consultations, she designs customized feeding plans to promote horses’ health, reverse illness, and optimize performance; she believes every horse owner should include sound nutrition practices to give every horse a lifetime of vibrant health.
Dr. Getty lives in Denton, Texas, in the Dallas/Fort Worth area with her husband.
