Love your website on it nearly everyday, I have a seventeen month old Rottweiler bitch who started being sick at nine months old - twice a day everyday, after trying different commercial dog foods, I went to my vet, she had numerous tests done including blood tests and knocked her out to put a camera into her stomach all came back clear. I decided to try a raw diet and she is doing brilliantly no more sickness and she is full of life the only problem I have is that her skin is flaky, I do give oily fish, vegetable oil and salmon oil her coat before although being sick was really shiny what am I doing wrong.

Best wishes,

I would like to thank you guys for giving me insight on the raw food diet that was explained by Cindy. I have been feeding my two German Shepherd dogs raw chicken and ground chuck beef. I no longer feed the dogs kibble dog food. Both of my dogs now have a lot more energy and there coats seem to shine a whole lot more. I purchased the raw food down at the local market at a good price. I just wanted to share the good news and your helpful information was put to very good use. Thank you once again and I will try different meat that, I am sure, the dogs will die for. Thank you.


I'm sure that you get dozens of emails every day so I'll try to keep this short. I just wanted to write and say thank you very much for the detailed information you provided in your e-book about raw food. Our dog Ripley, a 6 year old mixed breed labrador/cattle dog, has recently had a couple of small mast cell tumors removed, and some years ago we lost another beloved dog to a different type of cancer. Recently, I began reading up on cancer in dogs and it didn't take long for me to begin seriously questioning the quality of the commercial pet foods I'd been feeding our dogs and cats, and the role they may have played in our dogs' health problems.

The more I read, the more references I came across about a raw food diet, but I had many misgivings and concerns, as many people do, about salmonella, bones, etc. Reading your e-book gave me the confidence I needed to try switching Ripley to a raw food diet, and both my husband and I are completely astonished at the difference it has made in him in just a few weeks. It is as though he is reverting back to puppy-hood...he's begun initiating play again, has a TON more energy, and has a lot more stamina for longer runs, swimming, etc. His coat is glossy and he's finally dropping some weight. He LOVES the raw food and had absolutely no trouble switching to it, or handling the raw chicken bones, etc. He looks forward to every meal now, and if dogs wonder about such things, then I am sure that Ripley is trying to figure out just what he did that was so good as to deserve being switched over to such a wonderful new feeding regimen. I sure he joins me, in his own doggy way, in sending you his thanks as well.
