Why I Choose Dr. Harvey's Organic Healing Cream

Posted By The Team at Dr. Harvey's

A Dog and His Boy

This is a recent blog post from dog blogger and Dr. Harvey’s Brand Ambassador Bernard Lima-Chavez. In a recent post from his blog, A Dog and His Boy, “Why I Choose Dr. Harvey’s Organic Healing Cream”, he discusses his remarkable first experience when he used Dr. Harvey’s Healing Cream on one of his dog’s wounds. We love this blog and its honest perspective on being a pet parent. Bernard is also a spokesperson and advocate for deaf dogs.

Why I Choose Dr. Harvey’s Organic Healing Cream

Deaf or not, bully breed dogs occupy a special place in my heart. They are the most passionate, loyal, affectionate and hilariously funny dogs in the whole wide entire world. They are lovable clowns who want nothing more than to sit in your lap, lay on your head and lick the inner workings of your ear. Oh, and rocks. They love rocks.

Living with a bully dog is different than living with other dogs. Their brain works differently. They have quirks. They’re both special and “special”.

For one thing, they’re very verbal, especially during play. That bass voice rumbles and thunders and every once in a while erupts into a bark. Their spinning and body slamming is punctuated by lip pulling and ear nibbles. Play time is noisy, it’s rambunctious and it cracks me up.

Bullies also love to run- usually head-first into something. Shrubs, trees, fences, walls, doors, my husband’s knee; these are not obstacles but rather challenges to meet, and my money is on the dog.

The downside here is an endless parade of minor cuts, bruises and superficial lacerations that appear out of nowhere. Literally. I can walk into the kitchen for another glass of “juice” and return to an injured yet smiling dog. Every week, it seems, at least one of them has a minor injury of unknown cause.

I Find the Wound and Take a Before Shot

Two weeks ago, I noticed an injury under Foster’s left front leg. It was red, slightly inflamed and scabbed over. Nothing major and nothing unusual here at Deaf Dog Central. Fortunately, I had a jar of Dr. Harvey’s Organic Healing Cream waiting for an opportunity to test it, so I did.

Here is a photograph of the injury the night I discovered it.

The After Photo-Injury? What Injury?

Normally, I would clean an injury with chlorohexidine before applying a cream or ointment, but I wanted to see just how effective Dr. Harvey’s Organic Healing Cream was at being a natural first-aid cream. I applied the ointment twice a day, every day for 5 days. I did not clean it with chlorhexidine or any other antimicrobial cleanser.

Here is a photo after 5 days.

Why Ingredients are So Important to Me

As a pet parent and deaf dog blogger who integrates a holistic approach to wellness, I try to support my dogs and their medical needs naturally. Having a company like Dr. Harvey’s available helps me achieve and maintain good health for my dogs in a completely natural way. The results were incredible but I looked deeper at the ingredients to understand why it worked.

The Organic Healing Cream includes:

  • Organic Shea Butter. The base of Dr. Harvey’s Organic Healing Cream is Shea butter, which is rich in Vitamins A, E and F.
  • Organic Aloe Vera Extract is used in lots of human products and offers the same benefits to dogs. It’s natural, cooling, soothing and healing.
  • Organic Calendula Extract is an excellent anti-inflammatory that also has antifungal and antibacterial properties.
  • Propolis Extract is harvested from beehives and provides anti-inflammatory and antibacterial benefits.
  • Organic Thyme Extract is a wonderful naturally occurring antiseptic which is important in promoting healing.
  • Tea Tree Oil is another natural antiseptic that also offers pain relief
  • Organic Rosemary Extract is another good antiseptic and pain reliever.
  • It also contains Organic Goldenseal Extract, Organic Chamomile Extract, Organic Comfrey Extract and Stillingia Extract

My New Favorite Thing

Healing Product image

My new favorite way to treat minor bully dog “brotherly love scars” is with Dr. Harvey’s Organic Healing Cream. It’s an all-purpose first-aid cream that is safe for both dogs and cats. It’s made of ten all natural, organic plants and herbs in a base of Shea butter. It provides pain relief, reduces itching and promotes healing, and I swear by this stuff!

The Emotional Roller Coaster of Animal Rescue

Posted By The Team at Dr. Harvey's

A Day In the Life of an Animal Rescuer

If you have ever been involved in animal rescue, you will certainly understand this heartwarming story from our friend, the Amazing Angie, who works tirelessly to help the Potcakes at Abaco Shelter. For people who devote their lives to rescuing animals, it is a passion that pulls at the heart strings. Every day is filled with wonderful highs followed by heartbreaking lows.

Abaco Shelter, Abaco Bahamas

Image DescriptionWe started Project Potcake to help this small shelter that rescues, houses, feeds and cares for these indigenous dogs of the Bahamas. We have been inspired by the wonderful volunteers who work tirelessly to make a difference for these animals. As we get to know these people better, our admiration grows.

Not Just The Dogs..

Angie shared this story with us today and we were compelled to share it here. This is not just a story about animal rescue, but a story of human compassion. It is a story of making choices and it is a story that shows what these volunteers face daily. This is the emotional roller coaster of animal rescue.

Out of the Shelter

Not only does this small shelter take in sick and starving dogs, they go out and feed the feral dogs of the island. Many of these dogs would starve without their efforts. It is a difficult and exhausting task to find and feed these feral dogs.

In Her Own Words…

Image Description“I don’t know quite how to describe our days on feral feeds, my heart breaks and soars and breaks again. Today I was on my way to pick up fellow rescuer Anita Martin, and a little boy, with holes in his shirt, flagged me down for a ride. He told me he was out looking for work (he looked about nine years old!!!( heart BREAK) So we ’hired” him to help us feed the Potcakes. He was so happy to have a job. Then he told me how his neighbor had a “skinny, skinny dog” that he and his brother would buy food for (heart BREAK/SOAR). I mean this kid had rags on for clothes and he spends his money on dog food!

All He Wanted Was School Supplies & Dog Food

Image Description

Angie continues the story of her encounter with the little boy:

Image Description“Thankfully, I had sunglasses on so he could not see the crazy lady crying in front of him. Anyway to end the story he will have school supplies and shoes (that is all he wanted) and dog food for his neighbors dog!



The Day Continues with More Ups, More Downs

“More news (heart BREAK) we came across a dog on death’s door (Of course we will help him) and one of our babies was taken off the streets (Heart SOAR) and given her first bath ever! Image Description She was covered with fleas and you had to see her glee at being rid of them.. roller coaster ride of the heart…”



You Can Help-Become Part of Project Potcake

Image Description This is just one day of so many days that are filled with enormous challenges for these volunteers. Each day brings the opportunity to help dogs and people and obviously they do both! Please open your heart and help Dr. Harvey’s help Abaco Shelter. While we will be donating supplies and food to the shelter, they also need financial support.

"Dr. Harvey's Veg-to-Bowl Saved My Dog's Life!"

Posted By The Team at Dr. Harvey's

We recently received this letter from a grateful pet parent. We fell in love with Cutie Pie. We had to share her amazing story and her journey to health! We have the best job ever!

I Was Determined Never to Make that Mistake Again!

Dr. Harvey’s Veg-to Bowl is the food that has saved my darling, 5 pound Shih Tzu named Cutie Pie. After owning this breed of dog for over 40 years, I lost my last dog due to treats from China. I was determined to never make that mistake again!


Then I Found Cutie Pie

Image DescriptionSearching the Internet daily I finally found the cutest dog I had ever seen. I went to my knees when I saw her. She was a one year-old suffering with severe allergies and congestion. Her diet had consisted of sugar coated cereal and marshmallows. She didn’t like anything I fed her.
I tried everything the vet recommended and everything else I could find in pet stores. I spent hundreds of dollars. I could barely get her to sniff it let alone eat it. In the meantime, the allergies continued and she was in crisis almost on a daily basis. I had her at the vet on antibiotics and steroids every month.


The Best Recommendation Ever

Image Description Then I found Sandra at Metro General Store in Silver Spring, Maryland. She recommend Dr. Harvey’s Veg-to-Bowl. I started cooking her meats and mixing it with this vegetable pre-mix. She also eats the Sweet Potate’rs! I also added the Whole Food Multiple Vitamin & Mineral Supplement. To my astonishment she loved everything I gave her from Dr. Harvey’s. Her health, congestion and breathing have continued to improve along with her skin, hair and energy. She no longer makes sick trips to the vet only routine appointments. I no longer have to run a vaporizer at night.

Cutie Pie is Now Going on 4!

She is now going on 4 years-old and I truly make this testimony…“Dr. Harvey’s saved her life!” Had I not found her and gone in search of a way to make her well and healthy she would not be alive!


Thank You!

Image Description Thank you, Dr. Harvey’s, for making such healthy food for my little dog! She is so important in my life.

Sincerely,
Sandy Smith

It is the island’s only animal shelter.

The Need is Great

We’re Just Getting Started- The Documentary

This is just the beginning of Project Potcake and our dreams of helping these dogs. In July, Wendy Shankin-Cohen, President of Dr. Harvey’s, will travel to Abaco to bring supplies to the shelter. She will be traveling with filmmaker, Evelyn Vaccaro, a longtime Potcake lover. Evelyn will be filming a documentary that will show the plight of the Potcakes. It is our sincere hope that this documentary will help to raise awareness about the immediate needs of these dogs and the Abaco Shelter.

My Dog Likes LOVES Dr. Harvey's

Posted By The Team at Dr. Harvey's

Recently the talented blog team from MyDogLikes, shared an array of Dr. Harvey’s products with their adorable Golden Retriever duo Harley and Charlie.
The result is a wonderful review of Dr. Harvey’s Veg-to-Bowl, Oracle and our Wholefood Multi-Vitamin.

Here’s a part of what they have to say:

Fresher is Better
Dr. Harvey’s believes that feeding a fresh, holistic, natural diet will lead to a healthier, longer life for our pets. As early advocates to this type of feeding, educating pet parents has been a critical component of their mission. Today their website provides a wealth of information on pet food ingredients and nutrition.

Dr. Harvey’s has put these beliefs into practice through their expansive line of foods, treats and supplements. Though their line is wide ranging, some things that all of their products have in common include:

* Made and manufactured in the USA
* 100% Human Grade
* Free of Chemicals, Preservatives, Dyes and Coloring Agents

We are extremely excited about this food, and the more we learn, the more we love it. Everything from Dr. Harvey’s is sourced and manufactured in the USA, free of chemicals preservatives or dyes, and 100% human grade. The ingredients are truly top notch and our dogs went nuts for it! We also love that whether you are looking to supplement or provide a complete balanced natural diet, Dr. Harvey’s has a perfect product to help meet your needs. We were completely blown away by Dr. Harvey’s and can’t wait to try out more of their products in the future!

Help Us Find North a Forever Home

Posted By The Team at Dr. Harvey's

North All PhotosHelping dogs in need and supporting rescue has always been a part of our mission at Dr. Harvey’s. So early in 2015 we were happy to partner with Dusty’s Dog House, a doggy daycare and boarding facility, to create Dr. Harvey’s Foster Room. This special place allows us to sponsor one dog from The Liberty Humane Society until he or she finds a forever home.

We love North, the current resident at Dr. Harvey’s Foster Room. He is a pit bull mix, who is great with all people, but a bit wary of children and would do best in a home with adults only. He loves other dogs, but is a big boy and can be too much for some dogs. North is safe and sound in Dr. Harvey’s Foster Room at Dusty’s Dog House, but he needs his own family and a forever home.

As you can see, North is an extraordinarily handsome, big boy and is about 3 years old. We know that North will make a wonderful addition to any family who is looking for a new best friend.

We don’t know how anyone could pass up this face.
He really is a very special dog.
Please open your heart and your home and adopt North.

More Information About North

For more information about North and how to adopt him, please contact Frank Valentine at Dusty’s Dog House in Bayonne, NJ. dustysdoghouse.com

Kobe is just 1 Year-Old and Had Kidney Disease

Posted By The Team at Dr. Harvey's

We are always so happy to know when a very sad and frightened pet parent discovers us, reaches out for help and finds it. And then, with just a bit of guidance, they find answers that they were in search of that give them happy and amazing results for their companion! This is Kobe and his family’s story. They want us to share it, because they hope that their story, “in their own words”, will help other pet parents to find health for their beloved companion.

Kobe Was So Young-We Called Dr. Harvey

Image DescriptionKobe 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.

After Just 3 Weeks-Normal Blood Work!

We had blood work done after 3 weeks on Canine Health-The Miracle Dog Food , and his BUN dropped 10 points-to a normal range. This is so easy to prepare anyone can do this for the health of their beloved pet.

Thank you Dr. Harvey!

Thank you Dr. Harvey and staff for caring about all our four legged family. Kobe will never eat anything but Canine Health again.

The Vet Gave Up on Kobe But We Didn’t and Neither Did You!

My vet gave up on him and said he only had about 6 months to live, and just give dry Hills K/D food. In just 3 weeks Dr. Harvey’s Canine Health-The Miracle Dog Food and his love of helping us learn how easy it is to keep our pup healthy is working! Needless to say we start with a new vet next week, who supports feeding Kobe a healthy diet of Dr. Harvey’s Canine Health-The Miracle Dog Food , which is a must as Kobe will never eat anything other than products from Dr. Harvey.
We will update you on Kobe while he is enjoying his new healthy, happy, long life!

Please Share Our Story

Image DescriptionIt would make The Kobe Family very happy if you shared our story on your website. We want everyone to know this is a very true story about Kobe.

Thankful Pet Parents

Again, Thank you Dr Harvey, Wendy, (who never sleeps), and all your great staff for caring and loving my little Kobe, and so many others.

Deb Horrocks “The Kobe Family”


"My Vet Had Never Seen a Turnaround Like This Before"

Posted By The Team at Dr. Harvey's

Ranger’s Story-Serious Kidney Problems Improve

We recently received this wonderful email from Christina Mahaffey, a loving pet parent, who wanted to thank
Dr. Harvey and tell us about her 14 year-old Dalmatian, Ranger, and his amazing transformation! The most powerful way to share this story is in her own words. Christina’s email is posted below. Christina told us that she found Dr. Harvey’s after reading stories on our website from other pet parents who had also found solutions here. So she was happy to share her story. Christina helped her companion by researching her options and then changing her companion’s diet. Ranger’s story is truly wonderful; impressing a grateful pet mom and his veterinarians!

We could not be happier about Ranger’s results and thank Christina for taking the time to tell us his story! We hope you will read Ranger’s story and share it with anyone who needs to know there is hope for their companion.

Image Description

Dear Dr. Harvey,

Thank You-Ranger is Better!

I wanted to update you on Ranger since you were so helpful in discussing his care and nutrition with me a few weeks back. I have been feeding him the Canine Health-The Miracle Dog Food and then occasionally add a bit of the Veg-to-Bowl to it, to give him a bit more veggies when he is hungry. Between that, the CoEnzyme Q10, the Ortho-Flex, Whole Food Supplement, and probiotic that he gets daily, he is walking better, and he LOVES this food.

My Other Dog is So Picky-She Loves This Food Too!

Even my picky girl Scoobey LOVES her food! She actually comes to the kitchen and will sit and wait while I make her food for her……She NEVER ate her commercial processed dog food like this and certainly didn’t sit and wait in anticipation for it.

Blood Work Comes Back and Amazes Everyone!

Last Friday, I took Ranger back to the vet for another round of blood tests. I made sure that I took your Feeding Guidelines booklet with me from the bags of food and left it with them. The one doctor was hesitant, but my regular vet was very open to it. When the blood work came back and I went in to see them today, she told me she is beyond impressed with his blood work, that his kidney values are almost back to normal again!

The Vet Was Amazed-Never Saw Results Like This

My vet said that she had never seen a turnaround like this before and so quickly! She said she is going to check into the food and she was impressed when I told her that you had actually called me to discuss Rangers care and diet. She said other dog food companies NEVER do that and that they don’t want to be bothered with the end user consumer.

From the Bottom of My Heart…

So from the bottom of my heart and Ranger’s, we thank you for being someone who cares about animals and is making a difference one animal at a time! I tell all my friends about this diet and if Ranger could talk, he would tell his friends too! His appearance says it all!

Yes! Post Ranger’s Story!

I am happy to have you post my story! In fact, that is why I tried your products! I read the postings of other customers on your site…..and when I cross referenced with Amazon and a few other dog food sites, I saw that across the board, there were glowing reviews on your products! And that it helped dogs with kidney issues!

The Vet was Really Impressed with The Results

I was so excited when they said the blood work was as good as it was…and when my vet said she was impressed, I was thrilled but then she made a point of telling me 2 or 3 times how impressed she was and that she hadn’t seen that significant of an improvement before so I knew she was really impressed then!

The Prescription Diet Was NOT the Solution!

What is funny is the one vet thought that the Prescription Diet KD formula Dog Food is what created these results and I quickly told him that I stopped feeding Ranger processed food three days after leaving the vets office. I still have a case of wet food and dry food in the garage and will probably toss it…I can’t in good conscience give it to another dog knowing that it isn’t any good for them either.

Ranger is a Dr. Harvey’s Poster Dog

Ranger is about to turn 14 years-old! My vet said that is amazing for a Dalmatian and usually she doesn’t see them at this age, in this great of a condition!

I have attached a picture of Ranger!

Thank you!

Christina Mahaffey and Ranger
