The Collings Nutrition Solutions team (or CNS for short) supports Freely with guidance and education on nutrition and food science. When you contact the Freely Nutrition Center, you’ll be getting real answers, backed by real science.
The team is made up of:
Dr. George Collings Ph.D., P.A.S., C.N.S., D.A.C.A.N., C.F.S
Together, this team has a diverse background of experiences that help them be their best every day. Combined, they have a wealth of knowledge and expertise.
- 50 years of experience in the pet industry
- Visited over 600 plants worldwide
- Launched over 3,500 products into the pet market
- Taught pet nutrition in over 35 countries
- Published hundreds of articles and peer-reviewed research
As you know, “smarts” come in lots of forms. And the CNS team has them all!
In terms of school smarts, Ross and Sarah are heavily educated in business, operations, and communications, which allows them to be strategic in the industry and easily communicate the benefits of nutrition to pet parents.
Dr. Collings trained as a comparative nutritionist at Michigan State University. He is also a board-certified animal and human nutritionist AND a board-certified food scientist. Long story short, this guy knows nutrition.
Obviously, we’re not one to rest on our laurels or follow the norms (hello, mission statement), and the CNS team doesn’t either.
They’ve made training and education a core part of their roles because they are so passionate about finding the best nutritional solutions and breaking down even the most complex science so pet parents can easily understand.
Like the rest of the Freely team, the CNS team are also pet parents with three dogs and two cats among them: Harrison, Satchmo (Mo for short), Marty, Phinneas, and Zoey.
“Be aware of everything you’re feeding your pet. They need nutrients in specific amounts and ratios, which is why their foods are designed to be complete and balanced. Treats are not, and can negatively impact the overall nutrition your pet needs. We recommend treats are no more than 10% of your pet’s diet.”
