DIET

I began feeding a natural diet in the mid 70's. The improvement in our dogs health, appearance and vitality was amazing.

We try to replicate what nature intended our dogs to eat, a species specific diet.

Many of the health problems seen in our dogs today are the result of feeding poor quality foods. Our dogs are omnivorous, (feeding on both animal and vegetable substances). They need raw meat in their diet to help keep their immune system healthy.

Kibble will not provide all of the natural raw enzymes, amino acids and nutrients to help build a strong immune system. Cooked food is pretty much dead food which draws life giving enzymes from your dogs own resources to digest and utilize their food. Over time your dog will have a more difficult time digesting food from the lack of these natural enzymes and cells can become diseased. Natural raw enzymes help keep the cells healthy. You will see the difference in the vitality and health of your pet, when feeding a natural species specific diet.

If you are not comfortable making your own raw diet formula then my suggestion would be to purchase a prepared raw diet or a prepared raw dehydrated diet. The best raw dehydrated diet in my opinion are the products manufactured by The Honest Kitchen. You can go to their website for more information.

Please keep this in mind BEFORE you purchase kibble.

Many of the kibble companies have their products manufactured at various manufacturing companies that make many brands of kibble in that one plant. One brand of kibble ingredients will go through those machines and then another brand ingredients is added that goes through the same machine. Ask yourself if those machines have been thoroughly cleaned between each machine. Another important issue is the ingredients and where they are sourced from. Are they from the US with quality control or are they coming from another country like China? Many dogs and cats have become ill and some have died from tainted ingredients that were not tested for toxins before they were used in the making of the formula. Don't take a chance, make sure the food you are feeding has been tested with strict quality control. 

With that said, I highly suggest you only use kibble from a company that has their own manufacturing plant and strict quality control tests that are performed on each ingredient or completed batch of food before it is sent out to the retailers.

This will help to assure that your pet is not going to be eating food that may have toxins. 

Regardless of the food you decide to feed your dog, they need to have the health protection of additional nutrients, especially antioxidants as they live in a toxic world just like we do. In fact they need it more so if you are feeding kibble and if you have pets with health issues.
