A Blog About Raw Feeding, Pet Wellness, and Life as a Crazy Dog Mom

Does your dog have allergies? Digestive issues? Anxiety?  Yeah, I can relate. After years of vet appointments, I finally began looking into natural solutions to my dog's allergies and digestive issues.  And they worked.  My dog's vet said he wouldn't live long past his 3 birthday.  He's now a happy, healthy old man.  Today, I'm nerding out on all things dogs as I learn how to raise all of my dogs naturally. I write about DIY raw feeding, choosing natural options for our dogs, and dog mom life. Welcome to my world!

5 Reasons to Decrease the Amount of Raw Dog Food

Two of my dogs are on a diet and are eating less raw dog food for a few months. Rodrigo and Zoey should weigh about 60 lbs (at the most), yet they're both dancing around 63 lbs, which is too much weight for me. The average person wouldn't be able to tell, but I can...

Why I Switched to Raw

DIY raw feeding saved my dog's life.  Rodrigo had itchy skin, rashes, chronic ear infections, joint issues, digestive issues and more.  Traditional medicine didn't help, but adding fresh food to my dog's diet cleared up most of his health issues in less than two weeks. 

Raw feeding was the answer and DIY raw feeding is more affordable for multi-dog homes, but it's not easy to learn. I share my start as a raw feeder in my book, A Novice's Guide to Raw Feeding for Dogs, to help others on their journey to a healthier dog.
