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. Muscle meats are often left to other scavengers, or eaten at a later time.  But what is the value of...

Product Review Only Natural Pet – Cow Lung Dog Chews   I am always on the look out for naturally nutritious enrichment and training treats for my dogs. I was sent a bag of Only Natural Pet’s Cow Lung Chews to have my Standard Poodles and Boston Terrier to try. I only had to open the zip locked bag and the smell – er, um aroma, had them running into the kitchen and all sitting and waiting to try the new treat. To us, they are stinky but (not quite as stinky as green tripe though) to them the smell is intoxicating and attention grabbing!   They are air-dried and pretty...

Calcium From Eggshells For Our Dogs

The calcium from eggshells is extremely bioabsorbable. Milk and dairy products have long been promoted as high calcium foods, but the calcium in them isn’t bioavailable to man or dog (or cat for that matter). This means that the body can’t digest or utilize it easily. Dairy products are acidic and can contribute to the […]

The calcium from eggshells is extremely bioabsorbable. Milk and dairy products have long been promoted as high calcium foods, but the calcium in them isn’t bioavailable to man or dog (or cat for that matter). This means that the body can’t digest or utilize it easily.

Have You Considered Feeding Your Dog A Raw Diet?  Part 5 BARF Vs. SARF Diets S.A.R.F. stands for Species Appropriate Raw Food. The Canid species (the dog) is a carnivore by nature and design so they are going to thrive on a natural, raw meat and bone diet such as they would as a species (carnivore) eat in the wild. The diet I am talking about today is the BARF diet (Biologically Appropriate Raw Food), differs from the diet you often hear me or many other raw feeders refer to as the SARF diet. Those who feed a BARF diet, falsely (although sometimes ignorantly) assume that dogs are omnivores. ...
