Wondering Why you should Feed Your Dog RAW Meat?
When I got my little Chihuahua, it seemed like I was always heading to the Vet. My wallet in one arm, and Jasmine in the other. Medication after Medication, special Dry Diet Food after another. No one really seemed to know what was wrong with her. I often would find her limp and lifeless and quickly took her yet again, to the Vet where they would put her on IV and say she was dehydrated. Then, when I found her almost passed out and almost no life to her at all, I rushed her to my Vet, who insisted she go immediately into the Hospital.
7 Days …. of Agony, Pain, Crying (me). Jasmine’s Eyes were Dull, Her Hair was dry, she was Shaved in numbers spots, IV’s were everywhere. She wasn’t Eating, or Drinking and was looking worse every day. She looked, and I’m sure felt terrible, and I, was totally heart-broken.
I went home after seeing her like this below and thought….That’s it! My determination kicked in and I decided then and there, I was going to find a cure!
Determined, I spent all of my time when I wasn’t with Jasmine in the Hospital, scouring the internet looking for information and answers. I found something very interesting. There was a Holistic Vet near me and I wanted to take Jasmine there.
I immediately made an emergency appointment with the author of this book, that Holistic Vet, then went to the Hospital, got Jasmine and took her to the East York Holistic Animal Clinic right away. Within within 5 minutes, the Holistic Vet said, she’ll be fine, she just needs to IMMEDIATELY GET OFF THE MEDICATIONS especially the Antibiotics (which in Greek means Pro Death), to switch her to an Organic RAW MEAT Diet, add some EFA (essential fatty acid) and some CHLOROPHYLL (Greens) to her Meal Daily. He said to add a little PROBIOTICS (Greek for Pro Life). W H A T ?? Is that all? Is that it? That’s what I take!!!! Well, except for the Meat part.
I told this Vet about a Website http://www.newholisticway.com where a book called ‘The Holistic Way for Cats and Dogs’ was featured. I told him that I hadn’t bought it yet but wanted to. Imagine my surprise when the Vet told me he wrote it! What??? I bought a copy right away which he signed. I bought some RAW Meat, some Canine EFA and a Liquid Chlorophyll on the spot. I went back home with Jazzy, looked at her and said Mommy’s going to fix you and you have to help me. I read the entire book, and I sobbed and cried like a baby – what have I been doing to my Dog??? What did those Conventional Vets do to my Dog????
HERE’S what I learned:
Dogs eat RAW MEAT. They Eat and Need Bones, Cartilage and Organs. Try to stay away from Liver as the Liver is the filtration system and where Toxins are held. (Funny how many Dog Treats are made of Liver, because it’s cheap and not wanted). RAW Meat has Live, Living Enzymes that Nourish a Dog’s Cells.
Here’s how I changed Jasmine’s Daily Diet and Why:
DOGS eat GRASS and Green stuff like Botanicals. That’s why the Chlorophyll, Blue-Green Algae, Kelp and Herbs are so important. I add 2 Drops of Chlorophyll, a little Algae and Fresh, Organic Herbs to her Dinner.
DOGS eat Good FAT in the wild, so house–trained Dogs now need to be given those Fats, because they lubricate the Brain. And so, I add about 1/2 Teaspoon of an Essential Fatty Acid which is an Omega 3 Oil.
2 Drops of Apple Cider Vinegar is the Magic Healer that helps the Digestive System.
Probiotics especially in Liquid format (they are Alive), help with Good Bacteria and Flora in the Digestive System. Jazzy is 10lbs and gets about 1 Tablespoon in her Dinner.
I should have known better, but I listened to a Conventional Vet, who sold me on Conventional Dry, Dead, Processed, Dog Food. And they sold me on Vaccines and Heart Worm Medications! They sold me on Anti-Biotics, Drugs and other Conventional Medications. This Deadly combination of Garbage was keeping my Dog Sick and the Vet Rich! But No more!
That was 10 years ago and since then, Jasmine has NOT been sick ONE DAY SINCE! Everyone can’t believe she’s almost 13 years old. I stopped everything …. The Meds, going to the Conventional Vet, Dry, Processed, Refined, Filler-Added (probably full of GMO & MSM) Food, Vaccines and Seasonal Heart Worm Medicine.
You know, a simple Blood Test can determine whether your Dog needs Heartworm Medication or not. WOW! Please don’t let your Conventional Vet sell you a Bottle of Deadly Goods!
So, to keep Jasmine healthy (and my money in my wallet), I researched and tried a lot of different types and brands of RAW Meat and found a Great Organic Product that works for us both. It’s by Pets4Life and called ‘The Ultimate Diet’ Ultimate Diet for Dogs – RAW Meat – Chicken. I love the ingredients, the fact it’s Organic and I personally have talked to the Owner.
I get the 5lb bag (it also comes in 10lb), and I get out my FoodSaver Machine (vacuum seals to prevent frost) to portion out Jasmine’s Dinners and pop these Serving sizes back it into the freezer. Quick and Easy!
This is such a ‘Food’ and Time Saver in the long run. I just cut open the PBA-Free Plastic and put her Meat into a sealed Glass Container in the Fridge the night before so it’s thawed the next day at Dinner time. I add a little warm water, so it’s not too cold for my Princess. I also add the Ingredients I mentioned above: 2 Drops of Apple Cider Vinegar, 2 Drops of Chlorophyll, an EFA cap (I open it and squeeze the oil out) and finally, I add some Probiotics. I drink BIO K Fermented Rice, so while I’m preparing Jasmine’s Dinner, I add 1 Tablespoon of BIO K into her Dinner then drink the rest later.
Almost everything I eat, Jasmine eats. If I have some Fresh, Organic RAW Peas, or Strawberries or Blueberries, I give them to her as well. So, if you haven’t yet, please switch your Dog and/or Cat to Raw Food. You will be doing your Four-Legged Baby a Favour!!!!
Jasmine today at 12 Years Old
Her Eyes are Bright. Her Fur is Full and Fluffy. She Walks like she has places to go. She Runs and Catches her Frisbie mid air. She Eats her RAW Food and Drinks lots of Filtered Water. If I didn’t know she was 12, I would think she’s still a Puppy! In fact, a lot of people stop me and ask how old she is. When I tell them, they are surprised. I am spreading the Word about RAW Dog Food, one Dog at a Time!

or partly RAW Foods, keep reading my posts ……
