Pumpkin’s mom, Sue, reached out to us to tell us that Pumpkin wanted to tell her story “in her own words”. We were so touched when we received the story of Pumpkin’s journey and how Canine Health was the miracle she needed. Here is Pumpkin’s story.
My name is Pumpkin and I am a most loved and spoiled, happy, and very grateful 10 year old Golden Retriever! I am so inspired to share my story of love, survival, and gratitude with you! Let’s wind back the clock 6 years ago to when I was 4 years old…
It was Good Friday 2010, a beautiful Spring day! I enjoyed a long afternoon walk with Mom and Grandma! We came home and I got a refreshing drink and snack. I proceeded to take a nap as Mom and Grandma enjoyed lunch and good conversation. They said their goodbyes after a nice visit, and then Mom ran some errands. When she returned home after a few hours, she took me for a quick walk and then fed me my dry kibble and then BOOM…..I was out…. Literally passed out for about 2 minutes. I didn’t know what hit me! Before I knew it, I came to…in none other than, the dreaded vets office!!! I heard him speaking in hushed tones to Mom something about a Grand mal seizure…and as I understand it….that is why I was out cold….some kind of short circuit happened in my brain!!! The vet drew blood from my arm and ruled out many possibilities as to why I had this terribly scary seizure. He concluded it was of "idiopathic"origins; meaning he just didn’t know why it happened. He suggested Mom and Dad keep a watchful eye on me for any more seizures and that if they became more frequent, to perhaps, put me on medicine.
The very next day I started having diarrhea and vomiting. My Mom and Dad withheld food for 24 hours as advised by my doctor. After that 24 hour period, which felt like an eternity, I was allowed to eat small portions of boiled chicken and rice. As good as it tasted going down, I just couldn’t keep it down…if you know what I mean! So this is where my spiral downward begins to pick up speed! My poor Mom and Dad! They tried EVERYTHING….every commercial dog food on the market that sounded heathy…they gave me. Nothing worked…. I still had terrible diarrhea and vomiting! Many trips to my vet getting one test after another….more blood work, x-rays, exams, looking for blockages…nothing, negative, nada! My vet did ask for a stool sample and discovered I had hookworm and roundworm despite my being given an Ivermectin heart worm medicine….it failed me!!! My parents immediately switched me over to Milbemycin, another kind of heart worm medicine that kicked my worm issue, but not my diarrhea and vomiting. And my seizures were occurring weekly!
To our dismay, this continued for approximately 8 months! Mom and Dad were steadfast in their quest for a diagnosis and cure! I was truly fed up at this point and felt like I was dying….in that time period, I went from a healthy 86 pound Golden to a 60 pound shadow of my former self! People around us were suggesting they end my misery….if you know what I mean! Mom and Dad wouldn’t even consider that as an alternative. No, they KNEW in their hearts there was a cure for me and they NEVER stopped searching… And I am eternally grateful to them and love them forever for not giving up on me. And not to mention I am one tough cookie! I put up a good fight! But I must say, this whole journey was a labor of LOVE between me, Mom, and Dad!
My vet recommended I start a course of anti seizure medicine along with a prescription food diet. Mom and Dad refused to feed me the Rx vet prescribed food which its first ingredient was CORN!!!!! Please don’t get me started down that road!!!! Suffice it to say, it was nothing more than a bunch of processed filler ingredients with a fancy name and price tag to match! Just like every other commercial dog food, I know it wouldn’t have helped me at all.
So, that very same day, Mom and Dad turned to the internet and did an all out search for a natural, healthy dog food. That’s when they found Dr. Harvey’s Canine Health-The Miracle Dog Food They ordered my first bag and after my first DELICIOUS meal, my diarrhea and vomiting stopped!!!! It was my miracle elixir!!! I have been eating and loving my 3 squares a day ever since and I have been diarrhea and vomit free!!!
That was 6 years ago…in that time I have put weight back on, I feel great, I am so happy, and am so excited to celebrate my 10th birthday on the 31st of this month! Life is good; in fact it’s delicious all thanks to you, Dr. Harvey! I have survived against all odds and I am forever grateful for the love and steadfast determination of my Mom and Dad to restore my health, and to you, Dr. Harvey’s! You saved my life!

Itchy skin, redness and allergies are some of the most common problems we see in dogs. These conditions are also the most frequently sited reasons for a trip to the vet and can be among the most frustrating problems for pet parents and their dogs.
Medications including antibiotics and steroids, can negatively effect the immune system and they give only temporary relief. Dogs are often given multiple rounds of these drugs and the problem keeps coming back. That’s because medications only mask the problem and don’t get to the root cause.
Amazingly the most common cause of skin problems and itching is often overlooked.
Diet is the single most common cause of skin problems, itching, scratching and redness, inflammation, paw biting, rashes and hot spots.
It may be hard to believe that just by switching to a new all natural and fresh food diet, that your dog, who may have been itching for years, will get better.
But we have seen thousands of dogs improve. simply by making this switch, This means feeding food that is completely free of preservatives, dyes and chemical additives. Not only is it important to completely eliminate these additives from your dog’s diet, you need a diet that allows you to rotate proteins, has minimally processed ingredients and is rich in essential fatty acids.
Dr. Harvey’s Veg-to-Bowl makes switching to this type of diet easy and safe and the results are nothing short of amazing. Pet parents are thrilled with the results. After watching their dog suffer needlessly, they now have a dog that is free from itching and redness. Your dog feels better and so do you. Switching to this diet can also give your dog a bright, shiny coat and healthy skin.
Veg-to-Bowl is made from 9 different dehydrated and freeze dried vegetables, organic herbs and vitamins. To this you add fresh high quality meat and oil. You will be giving your dog the healthiest meal possible. Pet parents report the clearing of allergic symptoms, redness, inflammation and itching. Fresh whole foods can make a remarkable difference in your dog’s health and longevity.
Making Veg-to-Bowl is really easy to feed. Just add water to rehydrate the veggies, add raw or lightly cooked fresh meat and oil and serve your dog a meal that provides everything that they need for good health.
All dogs love to eat Veg-to-Bowl, even the pickiest eaters.
Commercial dog foods are laden with preservatives and other additives that can cause these problems and are toxic to your dog. Even the ultra- premium kibble and so called “prescription” diets contain these additives and will not alleviate the problem.
Holistic veterinarians recommend a diet that mimics a dog’s natural diet, normalizing and strengthening your dog’s digestive and immune systems. They recommend adding a good balance of essential fatty acids, and other immune-normalizing and strengthening nutrients, Dr. Harvey’s Veg-to-Bowl provides this kind of diet. A natural diet can reduce stress on the body, while allowing a natural reduction of inflammatory conditions and a lower risk of infection.
A fresh food diet can help from the the inside out. In addition to feeding Dr Harvey’s Veg-to-Bowl and eliminating all commercial foods and treats these two products can be very helpful:
Dr. Harvey’s Organic Healing Cream can be applied for immediate topical relief of redness and itching. This miracle cream contains soothing herbs in a base of organic Shea butter and has been shown to help on all skin issues from rashes and hot spots to cuts, scrapes and dryness.
Dr. Harvey’s Organic Healing Cream is easy to apply and safe for dogs even when licked.
And don’t forget to add Health and Shine, our pure salmon oil capsules that are rich in Omega 3’s so vital to your dog’s overall good health a great addition that can improve skin and coat and reduce inflammation and itching.
Don’t wait to start your dog on this wonderful, healing diet and watch the scratching, itching and redness disappear.
If your dog is experiencing itching, skin irritation or redness, dandruff , bumpy skin or body odor, switch to Veg-to-Bowl and see for yourself, what a difference it will make in your life and the life of your companion.
Are you thinking of opening your heart and home to a rescue dog? Go for it!
You’ll profoundly change your new companion’s life – and your own!
That’s what pet parent, Aidan Schroeder, did when she went to her local shelter, and welcomed two adorable rescue pups — “Salt” and “Pepper” — into her family. And to make the story even more wonderful, they’re brother and sister!
However, before the trio could get settled in and start their happy new life together, Aidan ran into a serious and dangerous problem: both pups had diarrhea. She tried everything she knew to put an end to it, but NOTHING worked.
Fortunately, that’s when Aidan discovered the healing power of feeding fresh with Canine Health.
Read her inspiring letter below and learn how she, Salt and Pepper achieved “peace at last”!
Hi there, I purchased Canine Health a couple of weeks ago. I am so glad your ad popped up in front of me when it did. I wanted you to know. I wanted to share our story with you.
I can’t say enough good stuff about this food. I have two rescue pups that just turned a year old. They are brother and sister Pit Bull mixes who had a rough start to life and I assume were malnourished in the womb as well, based on their many health and emotional issues. I’ve had them for 6 months and through this time; we haven’t gone a week without consecutive days of diarrhea.
They’ve been treated with antibiotics, probiotics, yogurt, pumpkin, rice water, everything the vets could think of for “shelter gut”. I finally got them somewhat stable (we could go 3-4 days without an episode and the episodes only lasted a day) with homemade turkey and rice supplemented with a limited protein turkey-only kibble, but we still had issues weekly and they were always scratching and biting themselves.
The female, Pepper, had recurring ear infections and her eyes were always goopy. The male, Salt, is naturally super anxious and skittish and when he’d get ill all over the house, he’d be even more upset by the aggravated humans cleaning up the hellacious mess so it was sort of a vicious cycle. Not a very fun start to their lives with us!
I was constantly researching what I could try and one day Dr. Harvey’s food prep video popped up in my Facebook newsfeed. I went to the site and poked around. Even after reading all the testimonials, I was nervous to try something new yet again because I was spending so much on the special kibble with limited success and I really didn’t want another “semi-fix".
Looking back, I wish I’d bought the 10 pound bag the first day I saw it! I was able to switch the dogs over pretty much immediately with no ill effects. They LOVE this stuff, which is surprising because it looks like weird veggie oatmeal. But when the kettle goes on, they’re glued to my side until the stuff is cooled and ready to eat.
They’ve never been healthier. We’ve had no diarrhea since day one (and believe me, I am FAR TOO AWARE of their every movement. I’m really looking forward to new hobbies!) Their coats, which I thought were just naturally coarse and wiry, are so soft and shiny now. Pepper’s ears have cleared up and her eyes are improving dramatically.
Their constant scratching has decreased a lot and Salt even seems calmer and less twitchy, which is simply amazing. I think it has everything to do with the fact that they both feel great and their humans are finally at ease. And they’ve ONLY been eating this stuff for TWO WEEKS. I can’t wait to see how much better they get!
All this to say: Dr. Harvey’s Canine Health The Miracle Food is truly fantastic. It cures what ails dogs, I have proof. It improves their health and well being beyond what you would expect for mere food. Health really does begin in the kitchen! My pups will never eat processed kibble again. I only wish I’d known of this food for all my previous dogs.
You’ve completely repaired my household and improved the lives of everyone in it.
Peace at last.
Thank you so very much,
Dog mom, Amy Colella wrote to say thanks for helping her beautiful dog, Toby. We could not be happier that he is doing so well. We wanted to share her story of Toby’s journey. We know that other pet parents are searching for answers to find health for their companions and we hope that by sharing these stories they will find the solutions that they need. Here is Toby’s story in Amy’s own words.
Toby is our 11 year old Cockapoo. In October of 2015, Toby had blood work done to check an elevated calcium level from the is previous lab work in March. Well, that re-check of the calcium turned into concern over his liver and kidney function. I was told to bring him that week for an ultrasound and urinalysis. The ultrasound didn’t show much, however given his lab values and urinalysis I was told he had early kidney disease and should put him on a “kidney diet”.
For 11+ years I had fed this dog “premium” kibble and now I was presented with one option… give him a different kibble with lower protein and phosphate that was definitely NOT “premium”.
In doing my own research online, I came across Dr. Harvey’s. The next morning I called and spoke with a representative at Dr. Harvey’s and then spoke with Dr. Harvey himself. He guided me on which food would work best and suggested a few supplements to add as well.
Toby has been eating Veg-to-Bowl for about 7 weeks. I noticed significant changes within days. He was no longer licking his paws constantly and he had much more energy!
Toby returned for blood work today and his labs were back to normal ranges!!!!
Our veterinarian actually said he no longer needed a “kidney” diet.
My other dog Duncan is enjoying Dr. Harvey’s as well. Duncan would walk away from the “premium” kibble and now he sits in the kitchen just waiting for his food.
Thank you Dr. Harvey and team!
The Colella Family
“We decided that we were going to do things differently if we ever got another dog.”
Like so many pet parents, Jim and Nancy Martino fed their beloved Vizsla a diet of kibble. But at age 11, their companion developed canine cancer and passed away. It was a rough time for the Martino’s; one that they determined never to repeat.
That’s when the Martino’s discovered Dr. Harvey’s Canine Health — and even spoke directly with Dr. Harvey, who gladly shared his wealth of knowledge and experience. That settled it. It was time for the Martino’s to bring home a new best friend. His name is Augie, he’s an award-winning champion, and as you might have imagined: he’s a beautiful, energetic Vizsla!
Reflects Nancy: “Before we even brought Augie home as an 8-week old puppy, we decided that this was the food we wanted to feed him.”
We were lucky to meet Augie’s parents ,Nancy and Jim. They came to purchase food and told us their story. They told us about why they chose to feed Augie Dr. Harvey’s Canine Health and what a difference it has made in his health.
It was wonderful to hear how healthy Augie is on Dr. Harvey’s Canine Health and to see the proof in this beautiful dog. Nancy and Jim wanted to share their story with other pet parents. They wanted others to know that feeding fresh food has made a difference in Augie’s life and how feeding Canine Health could make a difference in the lives of other dogs. They wanted to share their story with you.
You will see how strongly Nancy and Jim feel about feeding Augie this way and how clear they are in their feeling that the reason Augie is so happy and healthy is directly related to the food they have chosen to feed him. As Dr. Harvey has always said, “Health Begins in the Kitchen!”
We hope that you enjoy watching this short video and that you experience some of the joy that we had while making it.
Augie is a wonderful, happy and loving dog who was pleased to let us play with him on several shoot days and let us record his daily routine.
The results are here for you to see. Enjoy!
I’ve been reluctant to give praise to any food that my little guy Carson will eat, because he’s not only a picky eater, but he’s always had stomach upset. Every time I thought he was going to eat a food and keep eating it, he’d either turn his nose up to it after a couple of meals or his stomach would get upset and he wouldn’t eat any food at all for a few days. He’s always been a little guy (3 lbs) and he just turned 15.
A few of months back I thought he had stomach upset again, but this time he had severe diarrhea and some vomiting. He’d been eating a raw food off and on for many years. I didn’t make the connection until the food had a recent recall on it. We ended up having to take him to the vet and he was given fluid due to dehydration and medicine for the diarrhea.
I started feeding him very small amounts of cottage cheese and rice, then I went to small amounts of chicken and rice. I finally decided to try the Canine Health.. I started very small and surprisingly, he was eating it! So, I continued feeding it in very small amounts. I couldn’t believe that he continued to eat it. I was just waiting for him to turn his nose up like he has always done. His symptoms cleared and he was eating like I’d never seen him eat before!
A few months have passed and he’s STILL eating Canine Health. I change his protein every week and add in a little less than 1/2 tsp. of Kefir and salmon oil (which I rotate with olive oil and coconut oil). He eats a tablespoon every 3 hours.
He’s loosing his eye sight and hearing, but he still wants me to throw his favorite toy for him to get and bring back to me every night.
I can’t say for sure it was the Canine Health, but I’m pretty darn sure it is because I’ve had this little guy since he was a baby and he’s never in his life had this kind of appetite, and to think that he’s 15. Its amazing to me.
At the beginning of this letter I said I was reluctant to give praise about a food. I’m so afraid that he’ll up and fall back in to the way he was and not eat and have stomach issues, but it certainly hasn’t happened yet, so that’s why I felt I was ready to share his story with you.
Everyone says his eyes are bright and his ears are always perky, and he appears to have more energy than before. He has a little sack that he sleeps in all the time during the day and use to stay in it constantly. In fact, I would even say that he had no life, all he did was stay in that sack. Now, he’s up and in the kitchen all the time.
I’m so happy to feed my dogs food from a company that really does care about these guys. My other dogs eat Canine Health now as well and they love it.
Since the recall on the food that Carson was eating I won’t even consider feeding my kids anything other than your food. It’s pricey for us with having others besides Carson, but just to see how it’s changed Carson, there just isn’t a price tag for that.
Thank you so much for listening and not only making a great food, but going out there and trying to help all those dogs that can’t help themselves. You all are a blessing to us humans and our canine babies.
I’ve attached some pictures of Carson. I know you will be able to appreciate them.
We received this email from dog mom, Maria. She included a photo of her English Bulldog, Brando, and one with his crew!
We loved these pics so much that we had to share it.
We also wanted to share his results after eating his new diet!
Dear Dr. Harvey’s,
We are feeding our 10 year-old English Bulldog, Brando, Canine Health-The Miracle Dog Food.
We wanted to share our story with you.
Brando was diagnosed with Hypothyroid 4 Years ago. His energy level went from a very active Bulldog to one that would sleep all day.
His coat became very dry and thin, He also started to get extremely gassy.
We changed His food many,many times but nothing helped. Brando has had two surgeries this year as he developed salivary gland infection and a growth on his thyroid. During the last surgery they also removed a lymph node that looked questionable. Fortunately, all biopsy results were negative.
Lately Brando has been much more gassier then the past few years. He was also prone to loose stools.
We had a visit with his regular vet. During the exam he noticed another infected salivary gland that will need to be removed.
We also discussed diet change, but not kibble.
Our veterinarian suggested Dr. Harvey’s Canine Health-The Miracle Dog Food. .
Brando is the cutie on the far left…
I noticed a big difference within a day. It’s been two weeks on the new food and
Brando looks better than he has in 4 or 5 Years!
He will need surgery soon, but knowing that he’s eating a food that will help him heal more quickly means the world to us.
He Loves it!
Less gas and no more loose stools.
Lucy, our 12 year old cockapoo had been battling diarrhea for months. Our trusted vet put her on antibiotics and prescription dog food.
She was getting worse by the day so I insisted on another blood scan. The dreaded call came the next morning, Lucy’s condition had rapidly deteriorated, her liver function was extremely low she would not last another 6 weeks. Really! I did everything the vet told me to do!
A work associate told me to call Dr. Harvey. I was doubtful, but sent him an email describing her condition and blood and liver levels. He called me! After a wonderful discussion I put her on a plan to make her healthy again.
It worked! Every day has been a little better than the last and within FOUR days her diarrhea had completely stopped and has not come back. It’s been 7 weeks.
We have our sweet dog back and it’s been an amazing transformation. She has gained most of the weight back and she plays ball, goes for walks, barks at the neighbors who walk by and best of all is very happy. She loves her Dr. Harvey’s food, Canine Health, especially on the days that I make it with cod!
Dr. Harvey we can’t thank you enough!
THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF OUR HEARTS!!
