Now that I've covered WHY I feed raw. Here I'll explain WHAT I feed.
At our kennel, things have to be easy. In short, I feed a base of chicken quarters and I add variety with meat chubs. These include Beef, tripe, organ, raw eggs, and different supplements here and there.
Some of the extras I give are:
Probiotics: you can give sufficient probiotic's via yogurt, kefir, Kombucha Parasite DR – Contains all the herbs that help keep the digestive system healthy, detoxify's, and eliminate's parasites including Heartworm. A healthy dogs immune system will keep all heartworm eradicated from their systems; if they are actually exposed to it. You can purchase Parasite DR here: http://www.nativeremedies.com
Diatomaceous Earth: kills internal parasites as well as use for fleas, ticks.
OILS ‐ (all raw(unrefined) and organic); Olive oil, Coconut Oil Flax Seed, Hemp.
Coconut oil – anti‐bacterial, anti‐Viral, Anti‐Biotic…..if you dog gets an eye infection, goop this in their eye…it will be gone the next day or two at the most.
Spirulina‐ I give a tablespoon of Spirulina once or twice a week.
Tumeric ‐ I sprinkle Tumeric several times a week.
Olive Leaf Complex(By Barleans) ‐ If the dogs exhibit "cold" symptoms, runny nose, any type of cough ‐ give some Olive Leaf complex.
Garlic ‐ kills worms, general immune support.
Ground (raw) Pumpkin seed‐ Kills internal parasites.
Heartworm's. I suggest reading the book "Vital animals do not get heartworm's" from DogsNaturallyMagazine.com
The best source for research and information I have found on the internet for natural/ homeopathic dog health care has been: "Dog's Naturally Magazine". http://www.DogsNaturallyMagazine.com
