Dear Dr. Greg,
My husband and I were showing at the Gavalin KC Dog show a while ago and bought your book. Over the 52 years we have been married and had dogs I have fed kibble, raw food, cooked, and a mixture of things etc. Thirty plus years ago we got our first Bernese Mountain Dog. I have struggled over all those years to find just the right thing to feed and supplement with. Ever hopeful, I started reading your book in the car on our way home to Carmel Valley and finished it that night. Wow! It took me straight back to the early 1950′s. My mother used to cook a stew of horse meat( yuck, I thought as I looked at my favorite steed and sighed at the fragrance of the barn, the hay, the horses and even the manure) and veggies from our garden plus anything else she could think of. Our dogs thrived! How had I come so far and forgotten those days?
Painful disc problems in the neck may cause limping in the front legs, and a disc problem in the rest of the spine may cause rear leg problems. If your dog becomes paralyzed and can’t move their front or hind legs, seek help immediately!
Aspirin may help mild neck or back pain. Check out the aspirin dosages at http://dogdishdiet.com: 11 Practical Home Remedies.( To the right of this article!) If you Dog has any symptoms of arthritis: pain or limping that gets worse or really painful. Please get them checked out! Fish oil pills, glucosamine chondroitin and MSM products also really help!
The slow cooking recipe in the Dog Dish Diet will help most dogs lose weight and contains natural glucosamine chondroitin products to help dogs feel better.

One of my readers consulted with their vet about supplementing chicken and veggies to their chihuahua’s meal. The vet was worried about pancreatitis if their little dog ate too much fat. I worry about chronic skin and ear issues if they eat too little fat. I have found that if dogs are transitioned into eating wholesome healthful human food, they will become accustomed to variety and suffer less problems if fed something different. Dogs that eat kibble every day of their life are more apt to suffer pancreatitis and bowel problems wen they get a hold of real food.Imagine eating Cheerios every day, all day for 5 years, then getting a steak. Think you might get indigestion? A variety of different foods helps keep the bowel tuned up and ready for change as well as provides a variety of needed nutrients.

You are sitting in the warm sun or walking down a path, enjoying a few moments of relaxation when your dog comes in from the yard, field, or from a romp with fellow dogs dripping blood.
The first thing to notice is the attitude. Is he or she wagging their tail and looking around like nothing happened? Breathing hard and staggering? Is there lots of blood? Screaming in pain? Holding a wobbly leg up that appears broken. Has a wound that looks very deep and ragged or a big skin flap that is easily moved and loose, Has a deep wound that the muscle, tendons, or something very indescribable can be seen. All those signs should signal a trip to the veterinary ER. Dogs lash out when they are painful, so be real careful when you touch a wound or swollen area. In fact, it may be a good idea to use a gauze muzzle to avoid getting bit.
If the wound doesn’t look too bad and your dog seems OK, then you can take a closer look at it. A little warm water with baby shampoo or dawn detergent will really help you get a good look at the wound so you can figure out the next move. If the wound is small and you are not going to rush to the vet, you can trim the hair a bit. Then you can wash it a bit more. If it looks bad…away you go to the vet.
If it doesn’t look terrible You may decide to give your dog an aspirin(One adult 325 mg per 30 pounds twice daily) and put some antibiotics(neosporin) on it and wait till your vet opens up in the morning. You can try a bandage but most bandages come off or are eaten. Then you have a vomiting and bloody dog. If the wound is open a bit, but you can pinch the skin together easily, you can apply crazy glue on the edges. Don’t put the glue into the wound, under the skin it can make things worse!
If your dog becomes obsessed with licking the wound, you may need a bandage or a collar to keep them away.Occasional licking helps clean it up and heal, but too much licking may irritate the wound.
Wiping the wound daily with warm soapy water or hydrogen peroxide, and then applying antibiotic ointment will keep the wound clean.

We eat a variety of foods to stay healthy, but for some reason, most vets and commercial dog companies warn against feeding healthy “human food”. The healthful ingredients in a variety of foods actually ensures that your pet is getting all the antioxidants, omega 3′s, phytochemicals, vitamins, and minerals it needs to stay healthy. In the Dog Dish Diet, I explain why some dogs need to eat differently to treat or avoid chronic skin, ear, or bowel issues. The book comes with a short download to help you start “canine crocking” . I’ve advised thousands of owners to feed better commercial food, raw food, canned food, or homemade food, and it really makes a big difference!
