About Leyna:

Leyna is a tweenie sized dachshund. When she was a puppy, I started her on kibble and she had esophageal spasms. I began to feed Honest Kitchen at age 5 and she did better, but I didnt like the carbs in it. She has been on Primal brand raw since age 7 and is thriving. She gets 1/3 patty twice daily and maintains a lean weight. She gets raw meaty bones or Bully Sticks as treats. We still battle dental issues with her, but I have only seen esophageal spasms 1-2 times in 4 years. I told her she is expected to live to 25. Haha

About Geordie:

10 years this year, has great teeth, broke a few because he is my first to ear raw and I gave him too big bones, he taught me about raw. He is the leanest, most athlectic dachshund. Not rolly polly, he does agility and is ripped and has a 6 pack and pec muscles showing. He does have a luxating patella which is minor and has not really worsened yet. Senior blood panel all normal. Was purchased in South Korea, bred poorly. Meat bones, organs, eggs, few supplements, veg and fruit not significant part of diet. Do get minor table scraps. Never pre made, or commercial raw food.

About Maya:

Maya was adopted from a conformation/dogshow breeder when she was 3 years old. Her only health issue used to be some ear infections at every 2 or 3 months, but, since we switched her diet from commercial dry petfood to a raw diet in 2008 she never had an ear infection again. 
Today she eats a raw diet based on chicken, turkey and duck bones (50%), a mix boneless meats (20%) and organs (5%) from beef, pork and fish, mostly, and organic / free range eggs. Also a very good variety of veggies (25%), sometimes steam cooked, sometimes blended raw. Additionally she gets coconut oil, fish oil, olive oil, flaxseed oil, kefir yogurt, minced garlic, spirulina powder, and sea salt.
She was spayed when she was 3 years old.

About Yule:

Raw meat with bones (chicken, beef, pork, fish, quail, turkey, rabbit), no veggies/fruit (only as treats), omega-3 (really hard to find grass-fed meat), golden paste, lil bit of garlic, toasted pumpkin seeds. That's the usual stuff.
I changed him to raw a little less than two months after I got him. He was still really young, so no big changes from before (except pee and poop, that don't smell at all now, were disgusting before), but for a dachshund, he's really strong, fit and full of energy. The difference between him and other dachshunds on the dog park is very noticeable.

About Laylah:

I started Laylah on Raw because of all the allergy symptoms she was experiencing. I started her on raw 6 months ago and she has improved remarkably. No more itchy dull skin and coat, nor yeasty ears. She has a higher energy level and looks beautiful. I feed prey model raw with a large variety, her favorites are whole rabbit with fur and duck heads. Feeding raw is the best thing I have ever done for my dog and wish I would have done it sooner.

About Rusty:

About Benjimen:

Ben would be a great poster pup for raw feeding.  He has not eaten anything else is whole life and is lean, has a beautiful coat and no health issues.  He is 11 months old and unaltered.  I wish there more I could say but he is really healthy LOL.




03 May 2015

About Cleo:

Cleo is a little ball of energy and hasn't had any health issues.  She does have a roached back so keeping her lean is a number one goal.  Her teeth are absolutely white and free of tarter.  She is now 1 year and 4 months old and unaltered at this time but will be spayed soon.

About Lucas:

Luke is a very healthy neutered male.  He is 1 year 5 months old now and has held a lean weight and had high energy.  He is starting to learn field work and will move on to earthdog and barn hunts.  Raw feeding has kept his teeth absolutely white and tarter free.

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.




Please Read

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 need your help so I can continue helping you.

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 20 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 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.
