“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!!

I spoke with you on the phone a couple of months ago, about my Greyhound, Evie. We were trying to figure out whether or not she was developing Cushings Disease. We did one test and it was really a false positive. I had started her on Dr. Harvey’s Canine Health-The Miracle Dog Food. My husband and I had already started seeing a difference in Evie. She was not as obsessed with drinking so much water.
My vet did give us medicine for Cushing’s, which you told me to go ahead and try. You also told me to give her CoEnzymeQ10, which I did. We gave her the medicine for one month, and really saw no difference. The biggest difference in her, is your dog food plus the CoEnzymeQ10.
Evie has done remarkably well on your food. She is back to her old self at 14 years old. She went from not wanting to eat, snubbing all dog food to eat enthusiastically. She was initially apprehensive about Dr. Harveys. She now waits as I prepare her food. She is drinking normal again, and is always looking for food. She has put weight back on and her coat is beautiful. I can’t wait for my vet to see her.
We also have a Miniature Pinscher, Rucker, who is 5 years old. He loves Dr. Harvey’s too and his black coat shines!
Thank you so much for speaking with me. I am a dental hygienist and I tell all my patients who have pets about Dr. Harvey’s Miracle Dog Food.
I wish I knew about your food for my past Greyhounds. I truly believe Evie will be our first greyhound to make it to 15 years old in good health.
No more processed dog food in my house!
Thank you again!
At Dr. Harvey’s, we can’t think of anything more important for your dog’s health than giving them a daily diet of fresh homemade food made from real human grade ingredients.
We know that most people have come to believe that dogs should only eat dog food and that feeding kibbled dog food is complete and balanced and healthy.
Actually nothing could be further from the truth. Dog food, in particular kibble is made of ingredients that have very little nutritional value and actually kibble is largely responsible for most of the degenerative diseases seen in dogs today.
This is true of all brands, even the so-called natural brands high end expensive brands and even foods that are sold as prescription diets.
FACT-No kibble provides a healthy diet for your dog.
Not only is kibble lacking in the real foods that your pets need, additives are then mixed to the food to allow it to sit at room temperature in stores for long periods of time. Other artificial additives alter the taste of the food so dogs will eat it.
We understand that this is hard to believe as everyone from your breeder to your trusted veterinarian will tell you that there is “good kibble” and that this type of food is healthy and contains everything that your dog needs.
It is unfortunate that so many pet parents actually believe this.
Just like humans, animals derive their health largely from good nutrition. How healthy would you be if you ate a diet of crackers and pretzels that had been filled with preservatives and then sprayed with vitamins, flavoring and coloring agents?
And then imagine that this was your only food source that you had day in and day out.
This is what kibble is to your dog.-A diet that is lacking in fresh natural ingredients and the essential nutrients that are necessary to keep them healthy and have a long life. We want our dogs to have a life that is free from degenerative diseases such as arthritis, cancer, kidney disease and heart disease. But this type of standard pet food diet in kibbled form can also contribute to allergies, skin conditions, ear infections, digestive problems, bad breath and body odor. Not only does dry kibble lack nutritional value it also lacks enough moisture to keep dogs properly hydrated.
Once pet parents understand the importance of a truly healthy freshly made meals, it’s a simple decision to switch to a healthy homemade diet.
Right? Yes, but..
*At first, home cooking can seem overwhelming.
*How will I do this? I don’t have time for this?
*It must be very expensive.
All valid concerns and that’s why Dr. Harvey’s has made home cooking so easy and affordable.
*Dr. Harvey’s takes all the guesswork out of making fresh healthy food for your pets.
*Using our premixes Canine Health and Veg to Bowl you simply add water fresh meat and oil and you have a fresh meal made from healthy real, whole foods in just minutes.
*You will be amazed at how quick and easy it is.
*With our foods you will be providing your dog with a healthy homemade diet that they need to maintain the best very of health.
*Feeding this way will make a tremendous difference in your pet’s life whether you are starting with a new puppy, supporting your senior dog or trying to help a sick dog regain his health.
It has always been Dr. Harvey’s mission to help animals find and maintain good health by using only real foods and our natural products. Nothing is more rewarding than hearing from guardians who want to share their companion’s journey of recovery. They want to share their stories not only to say thank you, but also to help other pet parents find a way to help their companions. Many feel they have experienced a miracle.
It is our hope that this little book will offer helpful information to those pet parents who need it. These are only a few of the many, many stories that we have received.
These letters describe the helplessness that pet parents can feel when they have lost hope of finding an answer for their beloved friends. That hopeless feeling quickly turns into delight, as they see their companion’s health improve. Knowledge is powerful and as you will see from these letters, sometimes just a small change in diet can yield dramatic results.
We are happy to share a few of these wonderful stories with you.
Once you begin to feed Dr. Harvey’s home made fresh meals you will see the difference it makes and you will never want to feed pet food again. We guarantee it.
It is actually overwhelming how many stories we have heard from frightened pet parents looking for a solution to help their companion. Over the 30 years that we have been helping dogs with health problems through diet and nutrition, we have become known as the solutions company. We are the place where many guardians turn for a solution to help their companion regain their health and live a long and healthy life.
Unfortunately, one of the most frequently asked questions we receive concerns dogs with kidney problems. This is particularly sad, as we know that so many of these problems could have been avoided with proper nutrition. Over the many years that we have been helping dogs with kidney problems we have had many success stories. Some of the stories are so compelling that we have shared them with you in hopes that these successes would help other pet parents to discover a solution that will help their companion.
Kobe had just turned 1 year-old, and had kidney disease! We were told about Dr. Harvey. So we sent an email, and we were told to please contact Dr. Harvey directly. We have spoken to Dr. Harvey many times on the phone and with his help and suggestion to put Kobe on Canine Health-The Miracle Dog Food, cooked protein, and oil, Kobe is doing great. Not only does Kobe love his new food, it’s so very healthy for him.
I am sending you this email to send praises about your Canine Health-Miracle Dog Food
My Maggie May started with a severe stomach upset in May of this year. I had her to the vet twice with this one incident that ended up being Colitis. It was horrible.
Two rounds of antibiotics and probiotics and it seemed like it just kept coming back. I have been a customer of Baron’s K9 Country Store here in Bel Air, Maryland for 10 years. This is my second Pomeranian in those 10 and a half years. I had noticed her breath was a little stinky, especially in the mornings and also she had really bad brownish, orange tear stains, but I thought with her being white, it just came along with the territory of owning a white dog. When the stomach issue started I thought a stomach upset is not uncommon, but then the bloody diarrhea was cause for alarm and I took her to the vet.
Needless to say as soon as the antibiotics were done it started again so they resumed another course. I knew this was way too much antibiotics, but followed the instructions of my vet. In the meantime, I went to Baron’s K-9, my local pet store, and mentioned what was going on. Karen, the salesperson, there recommended your food. She gave me samples and instructions. Maggie absolutely loved the food from the start and her Colitis cleared up within 48 hrs and we have not had any problems since!
She always picked at her food and sometimes wouldn’t eat at all and now lets just say she looks forward to every meal. I break her portions down to in the morning and at night and she is one happy girl. Her whole demeanor changed and her coat got even prettier.
Her stinky breath is gone and I noticed her tear stains became clear. I’ve enclosed some pictures to show you. In one photo you can see her eyes are clear (after),
In the second photo you can see how her eyes looked with the tear stains before the new diet! (before)
I also bought her Dr. Harvey’s Coconut Smiles and the Sweet Potate’r treats which are a major hit as well. I can’t thank you enough for creating such a wonderful diet for dogs. I think yours is the best by far as far as the results I have seen before my own eyes. The change is truly a “miracle” and my girl is proof of that. Please know I recommend your products all the time. The preparation process is so easy and so well worth it for my dog to feel her very best. She is only 2 years and 7 months old and I want her to enjoy every minute of her life and be as healthy as possible. Thank you so much for your time in reading my story. I will be trying your shampoos and other products as well as I feel completely confident.
Truly Satisfied Customer,
Bentley and Pierre are Barking From The Bayou and this time they are telling us about how much they love Dr. Harvey’s Power Patties. You can see the entire blog by clicking here. The Barking from the Bayou blog is funny and informative so don’t miss all the news from one of our newest Brand Ambassadors!
Bentley says, "Well, they should be in a 24 karat gold bag because they are that incredibly rich in flavor. It is going to be difficult maintaining composure when you are dangling one of my favorite taste treats in front of my nose. Power Patties are made from freeze-dried green beef tripe. Do you know about tripe, Pierre?”
Pierre says, "As a matter of fact, I know quite a bit on the subject of tripe. It’s the stomach lining of grazing animals. Stomachs of cows and other ruminating animals have four chambers which break down grasses with a bunch of digestive enzymes, gastric juices, and amino acids.”
The label does warn that dogs might want to steal the entire bag. Pierre says, “I can understand that desire because I already want more.”
Power Patties are the holistic treat that dogs love to eat!
