All about Dobber
Dobber eats according the Prey Model, she regulary gets whole rabbits (about 1,5 kilo's, with hair and organs), but I also make my own menus (whith the percentages of the Prey Model in mind). So one day she gets a lot of musclemeat, and another day I feed her a half sheepshead with a lot of bone. She also gets about 250 grams of organmeats (mostly hart, liver and kidney's) a week, but I do keep in mind that a rabbit also has organs in it, so I don't feed too much extra organmeats. I also dry my own dogsnacks, most of the times I dry lambslung, but I also dry liver, heart and kidney's.
Dobber is a very healthy dog, never went to the vet, no inherited diseases and she has very nice teeth and a soft, full and glossy furfoat. She has had some vaccinations, but not in the last 5 years, since I started feeding raw food.
However, she does have some skinproblems because of a litter she had when she was almost 2 (an unintentional litter). Since then, her hormones have gone wild and she slowly started to itch. This august I took her to a 'classic homeopatist', she found out that the itching wasn't from an allergy or something like that, but that it is caused because of the litter. She now has medicines and the itching is a lot less, although the itchyness also became less because I changed her diet...
Until Dobber was 2 years and 2 months, I fed kibble. Almost all of the time I fed cheap kibble, and the last few months I fed a better kibble, but still not very good. Then I started to switch to a KVV as we call it, ground up meats. It wasn't the best of quality and she now has an allergy to chicken and (I suspect) to beef. So that's why I feed everything else, but those two. I feed, lamb, sheep, turkey, deer, rabbit, hare, duck, goose, horse, guineafowl and some fish. Since this new diet, her fur also became a lot better and she now really enjoys eating and chewing her food!
Disclaimer: I'm not a medical professional and the advices I provide are based on 18 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 share 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.
Over the last 18 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 free 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

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"
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 70% of dogs getting cancer is unacceptable to me. I'm on a mission to reduce this dramatically.
For 20 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 on how to raise funds for this project please let me know.
Please help support these much-needed one-of-a-kind research projects by donating to my nonprofit organization:

I thank you in advance. I'm unable to continue these important projects and help animals with cancer if it was not for your generous support.
