    @optical76 Thats basically the idea plus throw in an egg or two plus raw green tripe. Imagine her satisfaction at getting down to work on a good sized pork trotter, great focussed mental stimulous, great teeth cleaning, easily digested food, soft bones and all the live enzymes, flavinoids, 35+ intact proteins going to where they need to go and doing the job they were meant to do fortifying and replenishing your dog’s body, boosting the immune systen. Watch the allergies melt away!!!

  • optical76 says:

    @danscott888 so i should just basically give her raw steak, chicken, turkey, pork… every day?

  • danscott888 says:

    @optical76 BTW Love the APBT stunning dogs. His allergies are from either the additives in the food or from the de-natured proteins that result from high cooking temperatures in commercial dog food. A natural diet will get him over the allergies within a few weeks. Barf is too complicated, messy and much of it unnecessary, just stick to the basics. I like convenient too, just raw convenient!

  • danscott888 says:

    @optical76 Humans need a varied omnivore diet and yes raw is actually better in terms of vegetables, meat we cook because we tolerate it better that way. The canine is a carnivore, he has existed for millions of years on a diet of raw meat & bone with the occasional fruit/veg to fill a supplementation gap or when times are tough. The biology of the dog has not changed period, his needs are as they have been for millions of years. If you want the FULL lowdown get my report over at the blog.

    @optical76 Hi, some dogs like some people have great immune systems, that’s why you get some old bloke who’s 90 and still smokes while most are not so lucky. The genetic potential of the domestic canine is in the late twenties! The national life expectancy of the domestic canine is 12.5 years! Low grade cooked, preserved dog food is causing untold suffering in the domestic canine worldwide.

  • optical76 says:

    @danscott888 on the other hand, my parents dog, my childhood dog, another female apbt lived to be 18 years old eating from the day she was adopted- eukenuba. no allergies, no problems at all. trim, fit, active, happy, smart, obedient, loving, snuggly, playful, relaxed, vibrant… ate commercial food her whole life and outlived any other dog i’ve ever met. had a rockin life, far from the despaire she came from at 6 months old. its just a market hole needed to be filled. BS.

  • optical76 says:

    @danscott888 ok, you sparked my intrest. but thats like saying humans should only eat a raw diet. dogs and humans are a little more adapted than eating scraps of dead animals. right? have we not evolved to tolerate cooked foods yet? or a good balance between them? just sayin. my dog does have mad allergies though. apbt breed. don’t know what else to do. maybe barf diet?

  • danscott888 says:

    @optical76 Hi, the company blurb always sounds great but in reality it’s kibble bits that have been highly processed with high amounts of carbs which are wasted on dogs. I will state this a million times…A dog needs food in it’s raw state of naturalness, anything else is, ie cooking the food and adding in vits/minerals etc is at best guessing and worst plagueing your dog with ‘fast food’ with all the resultant allergies and shortening it’s life-span.

  • optical76 says:

    what about nutro lamb and rice?

  • BizGenLeads says:

    @smilediet Hi, thanks for adding to the conversation. Natural canine food does the most good in it’s raw state as demonstrated in nature for millions of years. All the 35 proteins, flavinoids, enzymes etc are un-altered and can do their job of keeping a dogs body strong and protected. The commercial products you list are processed and cooked at high temperatures robbing the food of it’s potential, in effect denaturing it. Sure your dog will just get by on it, but not in optimum health!

  • smilediet says:

    your imformation is biased and WRONG
    i agree that A LOT of foods are crap
    yet there are ones with the proper principle and diet..
    so stfu cause you have no idea what youre talkin about since

    Orijen, oven baked traditions, Natural Balance, Innova, Evo, Horizon, MUlligan stew

    so do your research

  • BizGenLeads says:

    @godsfiddler Hi, yes a fast helps to kick things off, cleanses the body and allows the immune system to work at healing the body and clearing out un-wanted cells. Fasting a dog is very important for immune system strength and combined with a healthy diet puts your dog in excellent health plus longer lived too.

  • BizGenLeads says:

    @godsfiddler Hi, that’s great glad you got it. Yes, a real food diet does the job of expressing for you…how it’s meant to be! The free download you received is different to the new hard copy book. The new book is the A to Z of switching your dog to a natural diet and will be out just as soon as I can work out all the technical stuff of getting it online…hopefully by 05/22/10. If you cant wait, email me (from blog) for advanced copy. Dan.

  • godsfiddler says:

    Ok, my computer did actually download that E Book. Something else very interesting you cover is the anal sac issue. Now I probably will never have to express my other dog’s anal glands again. Wow!

  • godsfiddler says:

    @danscott888 But I read that a 24 hour fast helps when starting animals on raw. We are finishing that fast today..and no runny stool! So that must mean her body is getting rid of whatever is causing the problem..and will never have to go through this again! At least not as a result of the kibble.

  • godsfiddler says:

    I tried downloading something from your website. Is that E book that 50-something page book on that site? Anyway, apparently my computer doesn’t like to download, so I’ll have to trudge my way to Barnes and Noble right down the street…hahahaha! in a couple weeks. But THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS!

  • danscott888 says:

    @godsfiddler Hi…”processed gruel” LOL… brilliant! Yes whats in the freezer is light years ahead of any commercial ‘gruel’. It’s the same for your cat, an obligate carnivore in real need of raw food. Forget the hard work on research, I’ve done it all for you, just get my book “Real Food for Dogs”, and get going. The e-book is out now or the new hardcopy is out nxt couple of weeks-email me re choice.

  • danscott888 says:

    @godsfiddler Hi, yes I have written about this particular problem on the blog… it’s serious and needs attention fast! Antibiotics and prescription commercial dog food is not the answer, a complete diet change to healthy, soothing and healing food IS the answer. If you need a good primer on the whole 9 yards of natural diet-get my new book at the blog-tons of excellent help there. Good luck.

  • godsfiddler says:

    I’m not paying top dollar for processed gruel. We are flat broke until next week thanks the the expensive Emergency Vet bill. All we have for meat in our freezer is chicken hindquarters and raw salmon. I would like to start the RAW asap before the bleeding starts again. Right now my dog only has the runny stool. Can I start on that meat we have in the freezer? I’m also going to research everything else one can feed on raw.

  • godsfiddler says:

    We are seriously looking to switch to raw for our dogs. Reason being is about 2 weeks ago we took our Toy Poodle to the Emergency Vet due to haveing blood and runny stool. Well, the problem got “fixed”by antibiotics and 3 cans of prescription diet dog food. We went back to the regular kibble, and the problem is back. I called the owner of my dog’s mother, and she was having the same problems, only they put her on that expensive prescription diet dog food.

    @LilxE07 Hi, congrats on the new Lab puppy, wonderful dogs. The only recipe you need for the canine is the one nature gave them in the form of fresh food in its raw state with all the enzymes, proteins & much more locked in giving REAL health for life. Pups are easy to start off on this simple diet. Bottom line-get my comprehensive book, It’s got everything you need for life spelled out. Just click the ‘book’ tab on the blog. Stay in touch, I’m always here for dogs, all the best, Dan.

  • LilxE07 says:

    Hi
    i will be buying a dog and i don’t want to feed them with commercial food.
    i will be buying a 1.5months old puppy and don’t know how to feed them?(labrador retriever)
    do you have any recipes because the ones that i read from other sites are really complicated.

  • ROTTIMAN31 says:

    @danscott888 ok thanx Dan, that makes more sense to me.

  • danscott888 says:

    @ROTTIMAN31 Hi, it’s too much meat alone that leads to excess phosphorous. Give bones and meat together in the meal for a calcium phosphorous balance. eg. chicken quarter/thigh has the right mix of bone and meat on it. In your case I’m guessing from your username whole chicken frame (after wings, legs & breast meat removed) or half whole chicken for single days meal would be good example.

  • ROTTIMAN31 says:

    I was once told that too much bone will give them too much phosphurus, is this true? I was told to give them crushed egg shells for calcium instead. That doesn’t seem very natural to me because the chances of a wolf eating bones is much higher than bird eggs.
