"The results are back.... its cancer"

Something none of us want to hear but its happens to 1 in 3 dogs these days. I also know we are suppose to trust our vets by doing right by your dog... But lets think about this for a moment is processed foods good for us? Then why is it good for our dogs? Would getting our baby vaccines every 1-3 years be good for us? Then why is it for our dogs? Are poisons that kill fleas or ticks on our pets healthy or safe? Are steroids good for us or our dogs? So we all can start helping our pets by just changing little things like one titer testing our pets for the vaccines antibodies, in 17 years I have never had to revaccinate any of my dogs since their puppy shots. Yeap! thats right they lasted a lifetime just like our baby shots, its called cell memory. Over the years in losing 2 of my beloved Rottweilers Ulla and Oskar I have only gotten more and more obsessed with studding cancer prevention, nutrition and overall wellness in dogs. Unfortunately even with doing everthing right we cannot always eliminate all the health issues but we can certainly stop most of them!! Can you imagine if a pediatrician prescribed your child with yearly baby vaccines for life and the same processed cereal with synthetic vitamins telling you not to ever change this or you throw off the health and balance and that WHOLE foods are BAD! You would run and never look back... But sadly our vets are doing this to our pets daily! Makes me so sad and angry. -Ursula Life with Oz
Quote from world renowned vet I am teamed with Dr Dodds in
“If you think certain people or animals are destined to get cancer as an unfortunate by-product of their inherited DNA, think again. Researchers estimate that only 5% to 10% of all cancer cases originate from genetic predisposition, while 90% to 95% are the result of lifestyle and environmental factors, such as exposure to toxins […] and diet.” – Canine Nutrigenomics Dr Dodds & Diana Laverdure

Is your dogs food "Natural" or "Holistic"?

This is exactly why I prepare my dogs and my foster dogs food since 2003.

Do you really know what your feeding when you pour that kibble in your best friends dog bowl? If you did you wouldn't be feeding it. The words Natural & Holistic are very abused words in both our own foods and our pets. If you cant read the ingredients or know what they are you should not be feeding them. Also know that 99% of the "meat" in dog food is denatured YIKES!!!! "A Graphic Description of what the FDA allows in Pet Food"
