I typically feed a mix of raw foods in a bowl. Below is a sample of what I feed Odin. I feel this gives me greater control over what I feed and it is easier for me to give a balanced variety of bones, meats, and organs. Some people will argue that I’m not mimicking the true Prey Model by feeding this way, but the only thing this type of feeding is missing is the tearing and ripping motion an animal would perform when fed larger pieces of meats with bones, like a whole chicken. I do feed leg quarters and breasts with bones at least 4-5 times a week so they are getting the benefits of chewing bones, which promotes clean teeth – in the last 12 years, I have never had the need to clean any of my dogs’ teeth so it’s working pretty well.

Fear of bacteria.

One of the most frequent reasons for not feeding raw is the fear of bacteria spreading around the house and making people sick. Some people cannot bring themselves to give a dog a huge piece of meat and bones because the dog will tear into it with its mouth, holding the meat with its paws, and later go running around and playing with their kids – the thought is just too much to handle. Some go to great extents to clean the area where their dog ate as well as cleaning the dog itself. This makes raw feeding a huge, time consuming task that many quit after a short time.

Feeding the way I do eliminates most of the above. When a dog gets used to being fed from a bowl, the dog will eat most of the meat from the bowl itself or in its immediate area; most dogs will only take the larger pieces of meats and bones out of the bowl. When they grab a piece that is larger than they can wolf down, they move away from their bowl and either drop the meat down for a moment to grab it in a different way or they move it around in their mouths, crushing the bones until they can swallow it. They will never move far from the bowl because if they think there may be more food there, they will, instinctively, not leave it unguarded. Therefore, you can limit the area any meat can come in contact with. Simply place a large towel under the bowl and you should be protected, and you can wash this towel as often as you feel you need to. I wash mine every other day or so and the dog towels are all one particular color so I never get these mixed in with my own.

Don’t underestimate the importance of the bowl. To a dog, the bowl represents a “food source”. This means that you can feed your dog anywhere you place the bowl. I travel quite a bit with my dogs and, as long as I feed them from the same bowl with the same towel underneath, they’re happy.

If you have any questions about this or other things related to raw feeding, please let me know.

Disclaimer: I'm not a medical professional and the advices I provide are based on 15 years of private research and personal experience with raw feeding and different natural remedies for keeping dogs cancer free. I always recommend seeing a professional veterinarian (preferable a holistic) if you suspect any health issues with your pet. 

I lost a dog to cancer and I was determined to never let that happen again, which is why I provide this information. Too many pets die from cancer and I know it can be prevented in most cases and many lives can be saved.

All I want in return is your story. I'm building an archive of success stories that will hopefully show other pet owners that there is a natural approach to beating and preventing cancer.

If you decide to follow what I suggest, you do this entirely at your own risk.




Please Read

Over the last 15 years, I have helped pet owners make the switch to raw food and I’ve helped owners that have pets with cancer to beat the disease using a natural method.

I have built up a reputation and the sheer number of owners that need help has become overwhelming. I'm doing this alone and I'm spending every free minute of my time helping pets so they can live long, healthy lives; that's my life mission.

Sadly, I have to limit the ones I help. It breaks my heart to do so because I know what a horrible feeling it is to have a pet with cancer – I have been there. I am only able to help the ones that take part in my research project. My research and the documentation of the benefits of raw feeding, plus the many stories about how alternative natural cancer treatments and prevention

If you need help with a pet that has cancer or want to participate in my raw feeding project, please go here.

Please share and support these important projects. I'm doing this study and helping pets with cancer all out of my own pocket. Any contribution is appreciated greatly. We are now a Nonprofit 501c3 organization so your contribution is tax deductable.

Add Years to Your Pet's Life and Drastically Reduce the Risk of Your Pet Getting Cancer!


Who is this book for?

This book is for anyone who is sitting on the fence and wanting to switch their dog or cat to a raw food diet yet are unsure how to do it. Maybe there is an element of fear or perhaps you are confused by the conflicting information online and in other books. Everything I describe in this book has been tested on my own pets, and many others, over the last 15 years. This is a beginner’s guide to raw feeding that will provide you with all the information you need to get started. In purchasing this book, you also gain personal access to me. In the forum section of my website I will answer any questions or concerns you may have.

I need your support now

A plea for your help!te-6-24-1

I don't like doing this but my love and passion for helping pets are too strong to not ask. I need your help to keep these three one-of-a-kind and very important projects going. Also several have told me: "If you don't ask and share nobody will know. There are many out there that love pets that will support you in your mission to make our pets live longer and reduce the risk of cancer"

  1. The raw feeding project will prove dogs thrive on a carnivore diet. My experience from the first 15 years confirms that I'm on track to fundamentally change how we look at dog food. I just need more time. The goal is to follow 5000 dogs and 2000 cats for 15 more years. The results will produce evidence of amazing health benefits and in many cases a significantly longer lifespan. This will shake the commercial dog food world, and hopefully force the pet food companies to make better food designed for dogs.
  2. The cancer project will prove that the risk for a dog getting cancer is reduced dramatically when fed the right food. The results of feeding dogs the food they are designed for will shatter all current statistics when it comes to cancer incidents in dogs. Raw fed dogs are close to cancer-proof when fed low amounts of carbs and higher amounts of fat and protein.  My study will prove this somewhat incredible statement. 
  3. Natural cancer cure project. I have for many years helped pets suffering from cancer recover and beat it using natural products that cost a fraction of traditional treatments and are in almost every case more effective. I'm building a case file of 200 successful cases, cancer free for more than 3- 5 years after being beating cancer.

Every day I get several requests from devastated pet owners that need help with their beloved dogs suffering from cancer. Unfortunately, I can't help everyone. I just do not have time. Between work, family and taking care of my pets there is not enough time to help them all. This is very unfortunate and extremely upsetting to me. I lost a dog to cancer and I will never forget the emotional suffering and pain involved in watching my dearest friend losing that battle. I understand what you all are going through and in pains me not being able to help more dogs.

With donations, I can take on less work and dedicate more time to my projects that will eventually help millions of pets. I want to share my findings for cancer prevention and natural cures so more pet owners will see that there are other options. The current statistic of close to 50% of dogs getting cancer is unacceptable to me. I'm on a mission to reduce this dramatically. 

For 15 years I financed this myself and I have plain and simple run out of funds. I had to take on more work and spend less time on what I have dedicated my life to do: Help pets live longer healthier lives.

If you have any suggestion or ideas how to raise funds for this project please let me know.
