Dr. Ramaekers graduated from the University of Nebraska with a Technical Animal Science degree in 1965 and from the University of Missouri-Columbia Veterinary Medicine in 1969. He started his practice in 1972 after interning at the Santa Cruz Vet Hospital from 1969 to 1971.

Since opening his veterinary practice in Santa Cruz, California, Dr. Ramaekers has been very interested in the nutritional approach to animal health. He began to identify nutritional deficiencies and toxicities and performed extensive environmental analyses; he studied soil and water, hair analyses, blood chemistries, and nutrient analyses. Specifically, Dr. Ramaekers found that he could prevent many daily veterinary problems through balanced nutrition.

Ramaekers Nutrition's proprietary formulas facilitate white blood cell function and efficiency through immune modulation, thus enhancing the immune system's ability to fight disease. For more information, please see "Meet Dr. Ramaekers."
