Dr. Steven Slagle, DVM Transfer factors have turned out to be the most effective and versatile large animal family products I have ever used in my 32-year veterinary practice. A cat with leukemia, an oral tumor, and posterior paralysis due to a spinal tumor, was very ill and emaciated. One month after transfer factors there was some regression of the oral tumor, restored appetite with some weight gain, and increased sociability. Five months later, she continues to improve, regaining normal weight, 80% regression of her oral tumor, and regaining use of hind legs and tail."

We see a lot of epilepsy, often after a rabies vaccination. Or dogs or cats can become aggressive for several days. Frequently you'll see urinary tract infections in cats, often within three months after their [annual] vaccination. If you step back, open your mind and heart, you'll start to see patterns of illness

Dr. T.J. Dunn D.V.M.- "There is ample proof that today's pet dogs and cats do not thrive on cheap, corn-based pet foods. Dogs and cats are primarily meat eaters; to fill them up with grain-based processed dry foods that barely meet minimum daily nutrient requirements has proven to be a mistake." Soy is one of the top allergens— substances that cause allergic reactions. In the 1980s, Stuart Berger, M.D, labelled soy one of the seven top allergens—one of the "sinister seven". Reactions may include coughing, sneezing, runny nose, hives, diarrhoea, facial swelling, shortness of breath, a swollen tongue, difficulty swallowing, fainting, anaphylactic shock etc. (pets are allergic to soy too)

The BARF Diet --- Raw Feeding Calculator and Videos

The BARF DIET. The word BARF is an acronym for Biologically Appropriate RAW Food. --- No Fillers, Chemicals, Coloring, Preservatives, heat processing or Grains. The; BARF DIET provides "first-class" proteins, including chicken, beef and lamb. These are the same fresh human edible meats you would buy for yourself with one important exception....it's 'bon-e-fied' biologically appropriate raw food! Our pets’ wild ancestors derived their fats, and more particularly their essential fatty acids, from raw carcasses of animals and also from pre-digested raw vegetable material. To optimize your pets’ health, we supply fats from similar sources to those consumed in an evolutionary diet. A full spectrum of minerals must be supplied in your pet's diet in correct balance and sufficient amounts if he is going to remain healthy into advanced old age. Bones are the storehouse of almost all the minerals your pet requires in perfect balance for optimal absorption. In addition, excellent levels of minerals are found in the other components of the BARF DIET.

"I want to thank you for Life's Abundance. This food may very well have saved my dog's lives! In the last several years I've tried every "top" brand of dog food on the market - nothing but the best for my Eskies! It didn't seem to matter what food I fed them, in no time they were developing vomiting and diarhea.; In fact, I don't think my male Eskie, Ashira, EVER had a normal stool. I began researching pet foods on-line and stumbled onto your website. After reading about commercial foods in comparison to your product, I knew I had to try it. In fact, I was beginning to suspect either an allergy or sensitivity to gluten. All I knew was my dogs were not able to properly digest the foods I was giving them.Life's Abundance arrived the day after I ordered it and that evening I gave them a taste test to see if they liked it. You'd have thought they were eating candy! Without bothering to "wean" them off the Wellness (which was the latest brand they were eating), I plunged ahead with the LA. They gobbled it down and actually seemed satisfied after eating their normal portions (something my female never did).; The next time Ashi had a bowl movement it was BEAUTIFUL! And in the last week since the new food was introduced there has been no indication of vomiting, diarhea or constant begging for treats. Thankyou..thank you...thank you! I've already started two neighbors on Life's Abundance and plan to let everyone I know about it. I also volunteer for Eskie Rescuer's United and plan to send out an all points bulliten about this marvelous product. Dr. Bicks...you deserve a medal for this!" Mary Rogers, Bradenton FL.

Testimonial: Embarrassing Issue Solved!;; "We are so impressed with the dog food! We can tell you that I was at my wits end trying to solve an embarrassing issue with my male corgi.

Well with a few weeks he is stench free and his fur is soft again! But, it even gets better. My female corgi has an autoimmune problem that attacked her nose and she lost all the pigmentation. Can you just imagine my surprise when again after only one month on this food her nose is turning black again! This is amazing! They are slimmer, have more energy and because the food is so digestible they are eliminating only twice a day. The dogs eat the like they are getting treats!

Some breeders and trainers prefer to feed their dog twice a day to avoid stressing their digestive system.; I have been feeding Shasta strickly raw food once a day to give her digestive track a chance to rest which kept her healthy and never overweight. No two dogs are alike or have the same feeding requirement. It is entirely to the dog's owner to decide what is best for their dog. Some people claim that is is best to fee raw food, first and wait 6 hours before feeding kibbles to prevent fermentation in the stomach which may cause some dogs to have gas. They claim that it takes 18 hours for a dog to digest kibbles and only 6 hours to digest raw food. My friend, Pat Hartman, who is a German Shepherd expert recommends to never feed dry kibbles to German Shepherd dogs but to soak the kibbles first. Personally, I have not found this to be true. My new dog, Kuuma, eats dry kibbles (healthy kibbles) and raw meat at the same time without any bad effects.

What is Pica? Pica is the act of eating non-food items. In less serious cases, cats may chew or suck on objects, but not actually swallow them. Common targets include yarn or string, fabric, wool, phone or electric cords, and plants. Any object may be a potential target, however.; Holistic veterinarians believe that cats exhibit pica behavior because our soil, plants, and especially commercial foods are woefully deficient in key nutrients.; Scientists theorize that mineral deficiency subjects us, and our animals, to more diseases, aging, sickness and destruction of our physical well-being than any other factor in personal health. A groundswell of nutrition conscious veterinarians are beginning to recommend to their clients that they supplement their animals diet with a daily dose of flaxseed oil and other nutrients for optimum health and vitality. The food your animal eats should provide all of the nutritional components which are necessary for all organs and systems of a healthy body to perform in harmonious unison. A properly functioning body does an amazing job at preventing disease and healing itself, and to do this it requires the energies and nutrients of a well-balanced diet. In terms of finding the proper diet for our companions, this means learning to look beyond our own needs, opinions, and agendas to address the natural needs of the animals that we caretake. more

Dr. Alfred Plechner, D.V.M "The most common and most visible symptoms of nutritionally caused deficiencies are allergies of one kind or another. Because many commercial foods are woefully deficient in key nutrients, the long-term effect of these foods makes the dog hypersensitive to its environment. . . . [It's a dinosaur effect. Animals are being programmed for disaster, for extinction. Many of them are biochemical cripples with defective adrenal glands unable to manufacture adequate Cortisol, a hormone vital for health and resistance to disease." Allergies can be, and often are, unrecognized deficiency diseases. Holistic Treatment of Allergies and Hotspots

Challenged by the recent increase in poor health and disease in our pets, Dr. Jane Bicks developed Daily Nutritional Systems.

FISH OIL and FLAX SEED OIL
Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) for improving the health of dogs, cats, and other pets

Essential fatty acids (EFAs), abundant in fish and flax oil, are reponsible for basic cellular health in all body tissues and are fundamentally important for all animals. Researchers now consider EFAs to be as vital to our health and our pets' health as vitamins and minerals. A dog or cat’s immune system functions the same as humans. EFAs play a major role in the maintenance of healthy coat and skin for cats, dogs, and horses. Without essential fatty acids in our diets, cells can not be formed or function efficiently. Like humans, animals also use EFAs to produce hormone-like substances called eicosanoids, which are involved in many important biological functions in the body. Essential fatty acids are the building blocks for prostaglandins which work to regulate hormones, immune and nervous systems plus cardiovascular function. This is why these fatty acids are called “essential fatty acids  (EFAs).

A groundswell of nutrition conscious veterinarians are beginning to recommend to their clients that they supplement their animals diet with a daily dose of fish oil or flaxseed oil, poured right over the food. The vets are finding remarkable results in clearing up skin conditions, relieving arthritic and inflammatory pain, as well as improved over all pet health. Mr. Paul Stitt, while addressing a scientific conference in North Dakota reported that flax increased bone strength as well as improved the silkiness and sheen of animals fur. When the diets of horses were fortified with flax, within three weeks their coats developed a beautiful sheen, and dandruff was greatly diminished. Within 9 months cracked hooves were completely healed. When a pregnant mare was fed flax, her offspring were larger, and grew faster than when previous to being fed flax.

Further research indicates that horses fed flax and injected with the deadly organism Escherichia coli were better protected than those not fed flax, suggesting enhanced immunity in these animals. Select Alaskan sled dog mushers are fortifying their dogs diets with flax oil as it serves as a source of valuable energy, keeps less desirable saturated fats mobile in the blood stream, increases oxygen uptake to the cell, decreases recovery time from strenuous exercise, and prevents and heals worn and chaffed paws. Numerous studies conducted on animals and humans show that flax has powerful anti-tumor properties and may reduce tumor size by 50%.

Irradiated pet food endangering pets health, killing pets

The Australian government in late May ordered an immediate stop to sterilizing cat food via irradiation after reviewing scientific studies pointing to food irradiation as the culprit behind illnesses characterized by ataxia or paralysis of the limbs, especially the hind limbs. Symptoms in the Australian cats first appeared three to six months after they were exposed to the dry food, Child said. Some had eaten the food for as few as three weeks; others for more than six months. The problem affected 90 cats in Australia, of which 30 died, mostly by euthanasia after they became paraplegic or tetraplegic, according to Dr. Georgina Child, a neurologist at the Small Animal Specialist Hospital and University of Sydney Teaching Hospital. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) also allows animal feed, including pet food and treats, to be irradiated up to 50 kGy.Irradiation can kill nearly all bacteria in food, both good and bad, but has no effect on the infectious agent that causes mad cow disease, or on viruses, such as those that cause hepatitis or foot and mouth disease.

This symbol is called a RADURA logo. Although it looks to imply 'green' or environmentally friendly, the truth is that this symbol means the food was treated with irradiation. During irradiation food is exposed to high doses of radiation in the form of gamma rays, X-rays or electron beam.




Never before has the pet-food industry been rocked by widespread contamination and rampant recalls.
Pet Food Recall

Contaminated Pet Food Affected 39,000 Cats And Dogs Nationwide; According to the latest reports released by one of the nation's largest chains of veterinary hospitals, nearly 39,000 cats and dogs were sickened or killed nationwide following the recent reports of pet food-contamination with an industrial chemical. The data, which was released by Banfield, The Pet Hospital, was reportedly compiled from records collected by its more than 615 veterinary hospitals.; On April 20, a new wave of recalls has been announced in the last 24 hours. Melamine, a chemical used to make plastics and fertilizers, was found in more than 100 brands of contaminated pet food that; were recalled from the marketplace in Canada and the United States in mid-March. Evidence suggesting that a shipment of the ingredient “Rice Protein Concentrate” contained melamine has come to light. Diamond Pet Foods, Natural Balance, Royal Canin and Blue Buffalo have all announced recalls of their products containing this ingredient. The contaminated ingredient is not brown rice; instead, it is “Rice Protein Concentrate”.

In all, more than 5,600 products by dozens of pet food makers have been recalled, from chain supermarket brands to prescription-only foods. This is a staggering number of products, and is unprecedented in this business. Thousands of deaths are due to the contamination, and many thousands more have suffered illnesses. We shudder to think of the long-term impacts of the compromised liver and kidney function and how this will affect thousands of companion animals in America. Leading experts believe that the severe reactions experienced by some cats and dogs were the result of an interaction of chemicals, between the melamine and a list of other culprits, including cyuranic acid.   Thousands of Cats and dogs suffered kidney failure, and many died after eating the affected pet food.

Dr. Jane Bicks - "None of our products contain toxic ingredients. It is believed that the contaminated ingredients, like the wheat gluten involved in prior recalls, and the melamine were imported from China. We use only human-quality ingredients from U.S. sources in our foods. Our pet food does not contain wheat glutten, corn, or rice protein concentrate.

Food to die for

The pet nutrition industry is a multi-billion dollar industry full of hype and false claims. Consumers are being duped into believing that they are feeding their pets healthy foods, when in actuality they are feeding nothing more than inferior meat meals, cheap grains (including corn and soy), fillers, by-products, pesticides, preservatives and toxins. Soy is one of the top allergens— substances that cause allergic reactions. In the 1980s, Stuart Berger, MD, labelled soy one of the seven top allergens—one of the "sinister seven". Reactions may include coughing, sneezing, runny nose, hives, diarrhoea, facial swelling, shortness of breath, a swollen tongue, difficulty swallowing, fainting, anaphylactic shock etc.

Dr. William Pollak D.V.M - "Eating supermarket pet foods is like eating cardboard. Our pets just get by on them and the foods lack any real vitality for the flourishing of health. Life is designed to be lived in vitality; surviving is living a slow death even before departure from the body"

Dr Wendell O. Belfield, D.V.M. - "Their pets may have diarrhoea, increased flatulence, a dull hair coat, intermittent vomiting or prolonged scratching. These are common symptoms associated with commercial pet foods." In 1981, as Martin Zucker and I wrote How to Have a Healthier Dog, we discovered the full extent of negative effects that commercial pet food has on animals. In February 1990, San Francisco Chronicle staff writer John Eckhouse went even further with an exposé entitled "How Dogs and Cats Get Recycled into Pet Food."

Our pets are prone to suffer from minerals and trace mineral deficiency. For optimum health, I supplement Shasta's diet (and my diet too) with the following: fulvic minerals or marine phytoplankton (consist of an immense arsenal and array of naturally occuring powerful phytochemicals, biochemicals, supercharged antioxidants, free-radical scavengers, super oxide dismutases, nutrients, enzymes, hormones, amino acids, antibiotics, antivirals, and antifungals), bee pollen (rich in naturally occuring vitamins), kelp (marine plants), the right kind of salt (not common table salt); magnesium oil,(a miracle mineral in its healing effect on a wide range of diseases as well as in its ability to rejuvenate the aging body). and clay (to promote healing and to detoxify) and with flaxoil; (also knows as linseed oil - rich source of omega3 fatty acids). Shasta does not drink tap water. I give her only filtered water which is free from toxic chlorine and fluoride.; I support my immune system and that of my animals with Transfer Factor; and by raising our Glutathione level. I never cook or warm up food in a microwave oven. Please read about the Hidden Hazards of Microwave Cooking

Dr. Pitcairn DVM - "In the natural state, carnivores do not develop calculus (tartar). Domesticated animals, in contrast, are not eating their natural diet and the softer food accumulates on the outside of the teeth in an area where it cannot easily be cleaned off. It is familiar to us that we can put our tongue in between our teeth and the inside of the cheeks to clean out accumulated food. Dogs and cats cannot do that as their teeth are too sharp. In the natural state, carnivores keep the outside teeth clean by gnawing on bones, a process you can still see with both dogs and cats accustomed to eating bones. If you observe the position they take, you will see that they use their side teeth in a sliding motion along the bone and this scrapes off any residue left from eating. The obvious solution to the problem of tartar accumulation in domestic animals is to give them bones to chew on. In my experience this is the most effective method and, for many animals, will clean the teeth to perfection."
