I strongly recommend that you try whole foods for your dog. A healthy pet is a happy pet.
My dog has probably been on close to 10 rounds of antibiotics, been given immunosuppresants, been put under for teeth cleaning, etc, etc. The vet costs were becoming ridiculous. He also never seemed comfortable - always chewing at himself and pulling out his hair, panting when it wasn't even hot, whining at the door, never having consistent stools. I had him on the most expensive dry food at the pet store. I'd also tried many of other leading brands and none made him feel better. Hearing Kymythy speak, it clicked almost immediately that his food was the root of his problems. Of course, my vet never told me this, and was happy to keep doling out the meds.
I was so convinced after reading this short book that I switched him IMMEDIATELY. I'm talking: Monday, dry food. Tuesday, raw food with kelp and fish oil on top, a chicken neck and a herring as a snack, and a raw neck bone (he eats and digests the bone in its entirety) for dessert.
Another thing that pushed me in this direction was finding a bunch of kibble that had spilled behind some furniture and was there for months. It looked exactly the same as the day I bought it. I found it quite scary that no bug or bacteria wanted anything to do with it.
It's been a few months now, and here are the benefits I've seen:
- No more itching or chewing at his fur
- No more whining at the door
- Less stool (I'm seriously talking about 25% of the volume he used to have) and as easy to pick up as a pile of tiny rocks
- No more constant panting
- Perfectly clean teeth from front to back - no more tooth brushing necessary (he didn't enjoy that anyway)
- Super soft coat
- He's actually excited to eat his food
- The bones in his diet express his anal glands naturally, so no more problems with that. If you've dealt with anal glands before, you'll know what I'm talking about. Not fun.
I have a whole new dog, and it's all thanks to this book. I'm sure other books and online resources can attain the same results, but why do that when Kymythy lays it out for you in a short read.
And if you're wondering about the price - it's around 20% more than what I was paying before. But I probably will never see the vet again about the aforementioned issues so I consider it a cost savings in the long run.
Another thing you can do is look for youtube videos showing dogs eating raw food, large bones, etc. That way you will feel less intimidated to switch.
