What to feed the dog?

Unbiased nutritional information is hard to find and difficult to navigate your way through. We need to start with common sense. Health is maintained through sound nutrition, emotional balance, and a natural lifestyle.
Our health is determined by our immune system, which is dependent on our diet. Our bodies are made up of living cells, which are made from the food we eat.Almost all dietary and health problems stem from a nutrtionally DEAD DIET. Cooking food destroys vitamins, minerals and digestive enzymes.

I would like to tell you that we feed our dogs and ourselves a totally raw food diet, but we're not all the way there yet.The difficulty in obtaining fresh organic meats and produce is frustrating at best. Why is it the grocery store sells so little FOOD?!

Our dogs, including Dog Stop members, are fed Solid Gold Hund-n-Flocken with Sea Meal supplement.Sea Meal is a nutritional supplement made of sea vegatation and flax meal.Sea Meal is rich in digestive enzymes, vitamins and minerals.

I chose Solid Gold because I trust their products, ethics and commitment to quality. They have been making organic, human grade, all natural dog food since 1974.

In addition to the Hund-n-flocken and Sea Meal, I add flax seed oil, msm, vitamin c, yucca and tripe or fresh organic meat to our dogs evening meal. Sound expensive? Not at all. These guys are never sick, itchy, runny, smelly- no ear infections, fatty tumors, hot spots or dental problems.

They sustain their share of playground injuries, which I typically treat topically with Aroma Dogs Quick- Fix or tea tree oil. ( also how I treat my own playground injuries )

When Wolfie moved in with us he often used only 3 legs- he has ( maybe had ) slight arthritis and torn cruciate ligaments. Trakker often had seizures and had a leaking problem ( he doesn't like me talking about that ). Trakker has no more "leaks" and very few seizures. Wolfie is four legged and pain free, Diet alone has revitalized their health. Trakker is on a grain free diet.

Please seek out natural alternatives for you and the animals that depend on you. They're counting on you.


Innova now sells a grain free food formulted for dogs suffering from seizures.

Thanks for listening,
