My Dogs Eat Better Than I Do

Does Your Dog Have Allergies?

DIY raw feeding saved my dog's life.  Rodrigo rarely had a solid poop and always had gas, but I thought this was normal. He also had recurring ear infections and itchy paws; our vet said this was seasonal.  Rodrigo developed joint pain before he was two years old; our vet said his leg might need to be amputated.  And then his skin changed colors and he developed a righteous rash on his bag and I said, “enough is enough.”  I made one change to his diet and most of his health issues cleared up in less than two weeks.

DIY raw feeding is the most affordable way to feed my four dogs a species appropriate diet, but it's not easy for everyone to figure out.  There is a lot of contradictory information out there and many of us quickly become overwhelmed.  I started with premade raw and transitioned to DIY raw feeding.  Each of my dogs is an individual and I'm learning how to provide the nutrients they need while finding quality, affordable sources for the ingredients in their diet.  I share everything I'm learning on my blog and I published my first book about DIY raw feeding August 2017.

My Response to the Bloomberg Article

Once again a respected publication has decided to comment on raw feeding without interviewing anyone in the raw feeding community or gaining a basic understanding of dogs and canine nutrition.  I found myself compelled to respond to this thinly disguised advertorial for Pet Food Institute clients.  CLICK HERE to read my response to the Bloomberg Article, Even Dogs are Eating Quinoa Now.


My Response to the BBC Anti-Raw Video

My Response to the Psychology Today Article

An article written by a Professor Emeritus in the Department of Psychology at the University of British Columbia has lit the raw community on fire, and we've all be participating in a collective eye roll all week.  What does psychology have to do with raw feeding?  I don't have a clue.  CLICK HERE to read my response to Dog Owners Are Wrong About the Health Benefits of Raw Diets
