Hey there! I’m Cyndi Smasal, and for the past two decades, I’ve been dedicated to empowering pet parents like you to give their fur-babies the best lives imaginable. When my own beloved dog, Norman, was diagnosed with liver disease (cirrhosis), I became an expert in pet nutrition and natural holistic and integrative health and wellness. I even wrote two books on the subject: ‘Hope for Healing Liver Disease in Your Dog’ and ‘Help Me! My Dog Won’t Eat’.

Before my pet-focused career, I spent 15 years in the high-tech computer industry as a Software Quality Assurance Engineer. However, in 2012, I made the courageous decision to switch paths because I realized how fulfilling it was to assist pet parents in taking better care of their four-legged companions. It’s been an incredible journey ever since!

For the past seven years, I’ve been working as a certified professional dog trainer and integrative pet specialist through my business, Pawtastic Pet Solutions, all while caring for my delightful companion, Jackson, an Australian Labradoodle, right here in San Antonio, Texas.

My true purpose in life is to empower devoted pet parents like you by sharing valuable information, so you can provide your dogs with long, joyful, healthy lives and cherish a truly rewarding companionship.
