Glandular Therapy For Dogs

Wild carnivores eat meat, bones, intestinal contents and internal organs and glands, such as liver, spleen, thyroid, kidneys, brain, adrenals, etc. Dogs and cats are carnivores/predators. For millennia, they have survived by eating other animals. Observation of wild carnivores shows us that the first parts eaten after the kill are typically the abdominal contents (liver, spleen, kidneys, adrenals, pancreas and intestines) because the highest priority is placed on eating these organs.

Calcium From Eggshells For Our Dogs

This means that the body can’t digest or utilize it easily. Dairy products are acidic and can contribute to the overall acidic condition of the body, which causes the blood to rob more calcium from the bones.   Read The Entire Article HERE Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on...
