Dr. Karen Becker has the knowledge and understanding on the dangers of what we could feed our furry family members and I have heeded her warnings in the past. We have fed our bassets hounds homemade cooked meals for about 10 years with confident results in health and wellness. Decide for yourself after viewing her documentary.
Dr. Becker is an integrative wellness veterinarian and an animal advocate. Her goal has always been to help pet parents create wellness in order to prevent illness in the lives of their pets.
Alfalfa is an ingredient in many commercially available dog and cat foods, and according to PetfoodIndustry.com, consumers are beginning to ask whether this forage belongs in their pet’s diet.

Check out the complete article that Dr. Becker goes into details on this important ingredient to avoid in our dog and cat daily food.

It took me many months reading books and talking with several vets, to understand how to make homemade meals for my own dogs. Now…it is the only way to go and they dance for their meals. No more emergency vet bills, no more sick dogs and only healthy skin, fur and guts. Through the appalling and numerous dog food recalls, along with treat recalls…we decided many years ago to start making our dogs fresh, organic and nutritious food. I soon learned that Daisy’s blood sugar became stable and she needed less insulin on a daily basis. Isn’t this our ultimate goal?
I will be posting several recipes soon and talking about adding ‘bone powder’ to our dog’s food.
