Digestive Issues Gone in Only 6 Days!

Posted By The Team at Dr. Harvey's

Bonham cropped

He Was Abandoned by his Owner

Bonham is a boxer/pit bull mix, approximately 7 years old.
I first met him about 3 1/2 years ago when his “then owner”, was looking for some training help with separation anxiety. A very friendly dog with a ton of drive and not nearly enough stimulation to keep his mind occupied!
Long story short, Bonham’s owner decided to move to Texas last December and leave him behind at the boarding kennel where I first met him. He was taken in officially by a Doberman rescue as a courtesy and I was his point of contact at the kennel.

His Digestion was a Very Big Problem

I kept getting reports from the staff that Bonham was having soft, loose & sometimes bloody stool. He would also vomit on outings we would go on, particularly in the car.
Two different fecal tests came back negative. All along I felt it was the food he was on which was kibble. Not the best or the worst. I also felt it was due to kennel stress, he had been there for 10 months!

I Tried Everything and then…

Metronidazole & forti flora helped slightly & I put him on rice & ground meat. As soon as the kibble was added back in to his diet, his stool became loose again.
My friend Julie owns a holistic pet store called Doggy Dao & Cat’s Meow & I always get great advice from her on nutrition. I asked her advice & she recommended Dr Harvey’s.
I have to admit I didn’t think of it myself but I should have. Years ago I had a Great Dane with inflammatory bowel disease & Dr Harvey’s was a huge help getting Hagrid back on track with his digestive issues.

Canine Health was Recommended-The Results were Amazing!

I started Bonham on Dr Harvey’s Canine Health on July 26th.
I can’t believe the difference in Bonham’s stool in a matter of only 6 days! It went from a loose, floppy, mucus like poop to picture perfect rock solid stool!

Bonham is Getting a New Home!

We are in the process of officially adopting Bonham & bringing him into our house to live with our other 4 dogs & 5 cats.
I can’t thank you enough for the approach you take with your foods. I wish more companies did! Mostly Bonham thanks you for making his belly feel better!

Happy Endings are the Best!

Thank you Dr Harvey & Staff!

This Veterinarian Thought She was Feeding A High Quality Diet and then...

Posted By Guest Post Contributor, Julia Roach DVM

Common Sense Feeding

Feed your dog a fresh high-quality diet!
Seems too simple, right?
Makes sense, maybe?
It wasn’t until my discovery of Dr. Harvey’s Paradigm did I have an “aha moment.” And only after finding Dr. Harvey’s Paradigm did I realize that it is simple and that it is common sense to feed my dogs a fresh high-quality diet.

I thought I was Feeding a High Quality Diet!

Prior to Paradigm, I thought I already was feeding my dogs a high-quality diet (a prescription dry food labeled for arthritis). I thought I was providing my elderly dogs with the best that was available. I had fed this prescription diet continuously for 10 years! However, even with the prescription diet and vet recommended supplements for joint problems, their arthritis continued to get worse.

Roni Dr.Roach

So Many Health Benefits!

I originally switched to Paradigm for my dogs’ Mental Health. I then realized all of the other health benefits it provided.

Since switching to Paradigm, these are the changes I saw and continue to see:

  • They LOVE dinner time; it’s a major event that my dogs look forward to! Looking back, I feel that they ate their dry food out of hunger and nothing more. My dogs truly enjoy their meals; there’s no turning back now!
    Roni Dr.Roach 4
  • Weight-loss. I realize now that my dogs were in a never ending cycle of weight-gain and pain when they were fed their “high-quality” dry food. The pain from their arthritis kept my dogs inactive, hence the weight gain. And then the weight gain caused their arthritis to increase, hence the inactivity.

How did Paradigm help? Paradigm doesn’t contain refined carbohydrates. The carbohydrates that are used are low-glycemic carbohydrates in the form of dehydrated herbs and vegetables.

  • Increased activity level. Without the excess weight, my dogs are eager to exercise. They no longer dread the nightly walk; in fact they now insist on it! The pep in their step helps me too, as I have to walk faster to keep up with the crew!
  • Decreased pain from activities. Even after their fast-paced, longer evening walks, I no longer have to reach for NSAIDS (pain pills) when we get home. Refined carbohydrates are associated with inflammation, and since Paradigm does not contain refined carbs, my dogs’ inflammation has decreased.
  • Increased muscle tone. My elderly puppies hind limbs’ muscle tone increased as their activity levels increased. They went from flabby to chic!
  • Increased overall health, mentally and physically.

Roni Dr.Roach 2

What I Add to Paradigm…

One final note, I only feed grain-free, grass-fed, pastured-raised meats. Not only is it a more humane link of the food chain, but it is also more nutritious for dogs. My staples are pasture-raised chicken thighs, chicken livers and eggs.

The Proof is in the Photos!

The pictures shown here are of my dog, Roni. I included a ‘before’ picture of her on her dog bed to show you how she didn’t have any true interest in balls anymore, before Dr. Harvey’s. The jumping photo below, is obviously the “after Dr. Harvey’s shot”!

I Had to Share a Before and After Photo!

Posted By The Team at Dr. Harvey's

He Almost Died!

Hi Dr. Harvey’s,

I wrote to you recently with an update on our 1.5 year old Bichon, Luca, but I wanted to share a before and after photos. The inset is Luca in January. He was down to 14.2 pounds (he’s a big Bichon). He was skin and bones and was hospitalized after several bouts of severe vomiting. He almost died.

He Was So Sick

He was diagnosed with IBD with many different cells being found in the biopsies. He was so sick. On top of it all, the weight loss had been happening gradually which indicated he also had absorption issues. He was gaining no benefit from his food. Now the uncontrollable vomiting.

My Research Led Me to Dr. Harvey’s-Look at Him Now!

Once stable and released, I went on the hunt for the right diet for him. I had always fed him human grade foods but many of the ingredients did not agree with him.Enter Dr Harvey’s Paradigm and look at him now! He is over 17 pounds and gaining (should be 18 pounds or so), full of energy and personality. I mix in eggs, cod or salmon and he LOVES it! He has had no vomiting at all and frankly shows no signs of the IBD at this time.

Luca Before and After

Thank you Dr. Harvey’s!

We cannot thank Dr Harvey enough for his guidance and helping us discover the right protocol for our handsome boy. The green superfood is a true winner.

Best,
Linda Cassola

We're Controlling Diabetes with Paradigm

Posted By The Team at Dr. Harvey's

Linus 4

Diabetes Diagnosis

I wanted to give you an update on Linus. We recently started feeding him the Dr. Harvey’s Paradigm food due to his diabetes diagnosis 6 weeks ago. He really loves this food, which to me is very important because I’m not constantly worried about whether or not he’s going to eat. Which in the past has been an issue with other dog foods. He would eat fine for a few days and then all of a sudden, he would decide he didn’t like it anymore and stop eating it.
Linus 3

Just 3 Weeks on Paradigm

He’s been on Paradigm for 3 weeks now, and he still gets excited as soon as I pull the bag out of the pantry. We are also still in the process of getting his insulin dosage at the correct levels and this past weekend was the best glucose curve we’ve had yet. He stayed in the 200s for most of the day as opposed to the high 300s that he had been in for 5 weeks straight!

No Hidden Ingredients to Cause a Spike

I know we still have some work to do but at least we’re starting to see some movement in the right direction. I was so relieved when I took his first blood sample on Sunday. And I attribute most of this to the Paradigm product. There aren’t any hidden or mysterious ingredients that could potentially cause a spike in his glucose levels.
That’s not the case with other dog foods…even the ones that are supposed to be for diabetes control!
Linus 2

Peace of Mind with This Food

Thanks again for checking on us and thanks for making a product that allows me to have some peace of mind during this unfamiliar and stressful time,
Thank you again for creating such an awesome product. I truly hope that Linus’s story will help bring some awareness to canine diabetes and hopefully it will bring some comfort to other pet parents that might be going thru a similar experience.

And His Brother Loves Veg-to-Bowl!

Also, Schroeder, Linus’s brother, really enjoyed his first Veg-to-Bowl experience. I’ve already ordered more and we should be getting it this week. He says the fact that it turns pink doesn’t even bother him because it tastes so good!

Linus 1

Please Let Everyone Know

I’d love for you to share Linus’s story! Anything I can do to help spread the word about this wonderful product, I’m happy to. Trust me, I’ve been telling anyone who will listen to me!
Sincerely,Valerie Ware, Shroeder and Linus

Protecting Our Dogs On the 4th of July

Posted By The Team at Dr. Harvey's

A Great Day for Humans – Not Great for Dogs

The 4th of July means a day free from work and school full of cookouts, pool parties, good food, fun games, and then gathering together with friends and family to watch fireworks. It’s the perfect end to the day—but only if you’re not a dog.

Fearful Dog

Here are some quick tips for dog safety during 4th of July fireworks:

Do Not Bring Your Dog to a July 4th Celebration

Wanting to include your pup in the day’s festivities is admirable, but please leave your dog at home. Even dogs who don’t seem to mind loud noises can be affected by the thunderous booms of fireworks. Some dogs can even have delayed reactions to loud noises and not show symptoms until much later. So do your four-legged pal a favor and leave him safe at home while you go out and celebrate Independence Day.

Do Use ID Tags at All Times

An alarmingly high number of dogs are lost during fireworks displays because they’re trying to get away from the scary sounds, which is why it’s so important that your dog has identification on him or her at all times. Even responsible owners can find their pets slipping out of their collars and escaping through a door or window after a particularly loud burst of noise. So tighten that collar and make sure those tags are firmly in place.

Do Plan Ahead

Some dogs are more noise-sensitive than others. If your dog has issues with loud noises, plan ahead for fireworks displays by staying home with your dog or taking your pup to an indoor care facility where he or she can be watched and soothed by professionals.

  • If you do choose to stay home, try to keep your dog in a quiet place
  • Stay as far away from exterior walls and windows as possible
  • Watch for signs of stress
  • If your dog panics, be calm, try to redirect his or her attention with treats or toys
  • Don’t punish the behavior as they have no control over it.

There are also a number of different products available on the market to help fearful dogs cope, such as body wraps like Thundershirts, soothing music, and even medication for truly serious cases.

Dr. Harvey’s Relax and Stress

Dr. Harvey’s Herbal Supplement-Relax and Stress can be very helpful. It is safe and natural and has been effective for thousands of anxious pups. This powdered supplement can be put in food or water the day before and on the day of the fireworks.

The 4th of July doesn’t have to be a scary time for your dog if you follow these tips. Happy Independence Day!


Why I Chose Dr. Harvey's for My Own Dogs

Posted By Guest Post Contributor, Julia Roach DVM

Dr. Roach Article 1

We could not have been more pleased when Dr. Roach reached out to us to tell us about how she discovered Dr. Harvey’s and how it had helped her dog, Muttley. She wanted to share her personal journey with other pet parents in hopes that her experience could help others to find nutritional solutions for their dogs. Here is her story in her own words.

Discovering Paradigm

Dr. Harvey’s Paradigm has truly changed my dog’s quality of life. I diagnosed my oldest dog, Muttley, with cognitive dysfunction syndrome (the dog version of dementia), along with other health ailments. Although Paradigm has tremendously improved his other medical conditions, such as alleviating his arthritis, increasing his energy level and helping his ability to lose weight, my focus in this post will be his mental health.

Muttley’s Anxiety Had Become Severe

Unfortunately, with cognitive disorders, concurrent anxiety-related conditions are common. Muttley’s anxiety had become so severe that I tried every pharmaceutical medication that I thought would help, but there were no significant signs of improvement. Being a veterinarian, I felt hopeless not being able to help my own dog. Then I discovered Dr. Harvey’s Paradigm.

Dr. Roach Article 2

Could Diet Make a Difference?

Let me back up to why I went searching for a diet like Paradigm in the first place. My husband and I decided to try a ketogenic diet for our overall health, and more specifically, to increase my energy level. After three weeks of strictly sticking to this diet, my energy level was truly remarkable. I was also amazed at all the other health benefits that came with following a ketogenic diet. Being on this diet paralleled with my attempts at finding Muttley relief from his anxiety. I began to wonder what benefits Muttley could experience being on a similar diet.
Dr. Roach Article 3

My Research Led Me to Dr. Harvey’s Paradigm

As I researched ketogenic diets for dogs, I came across several that required me to make the entire meal from scratch. Being a mother of two toddlers, I knew that was not a realistic option. I then came across Dr. Harvey’s website, and Paradigm was exactly what I was looking for! I felt confident it was at least worth a try, and I ordered a bag.

Muttley was Truly Suffering

At this point, Muttley was riddled with anxiety. He was having severe anxiety attacks daily. During the day, I would have to keep Muttley right by my side or he would go outside and pace. When he did lay down, he would lick his dog bed obsessively. At night, he would not leave my side until I went to bed, and even then, he couldn’t sleep throughout the night. I would wake up to him staring at me, panting heavily, and trembling.

Paradigm Made a World of Difference

My bag of food arrived and after only two days, Muttley slept throughout the night. Prior to Paradigm, he had not slept throughout the night for as long as I could remember. As I continued feeding him Paradigm, he stopped having his daily anxiety attacks. He would relax on his bed during the day instead of trying to pace outside. He no longer licked his bed. He will occasionally follow me around at night when I’m doing my nightly chores, but if I bring his dog bed and place it so he can see me, he will lay on it and fall asleep. Most incredibly, however, I have also weaned him off all his medications! It has been six months since I started Paradigm and he has yet to have any relapses or set-backs.

I Have Switched All of My Dogs to Dr. Harvey’s

Once I realized how beneficial Paradigm was to Muttley’s health, I switched all four of my other dogs onto the diet, and to no surprise, Paradigm has undeniably improved their overall health. I use Paradigm as the base of their meals and I add in my choice of proteins and healthy oils. Inside the bag is a simple instruction guide that tailors to the age and weight of any dog. With the help of Dr. Harvey’s, not only am I able to make homemade meals with ease, but I also feel that they are getting the “best of the best.”

Dr. Roach Article 4

We are so Happy to Have Found Dr. Harvey’s

Since then, Dr. Harvey’s was kind enough to send me their other lines of food (Canine Health, Veg-to-Bowl, Veg-To-Bowl Fine Ground and Oracle Grain-Free), treats, and a variety of their supplements. My five dogs happily agree to participating in the food trials!

No More Seizures!

Isaiah testimonal

He Loves Veg-to-Bowl

I am happy to say that Isaiah loves the Veg-To-Bowl food that we order him. Before we introduced this to him, getting him to eat was a bit of an adventure, as he is an incredibly picky eater.

He WAS Such a Picky Eater

Now whenever I am prepping his meal with the Veg-To-Bowl included, he can hardly contain himself! He just goes crazy when he starts to smell that I’m preparing his meal.

I Started to Notice a Difference

I’ve also noticed a noted difference in him: he is no longer lethargic and has more energy, the luster on his coat is improving, his bowel cycle has normalized and most importantly, I’ve seen a sharp decline on his mini-seizures.

I want to thank you again for such an amazing product! We have a keeper as far as food goes. I know Isaiah surely agrees!

Isaiah testimonial 2

My Isaiah is Back to Normal

I just wanted to add that since Isaiah has been on Veg-to-Bowl he has no longer needed medications for his stomach Issues. He has been seizure free for over 3 weeks.

Thanks to Dr. Harvey my Isaiah is back to normal.

Thank you all so much,

Yolanda and Isaiah

It Has Truly Been a Miracle!

Posted By The Team at Dr. Harvey's

Pepper Testimonial

A True Miracle!

Canine Health is what I’ve tried so far and it has truly been a miracle. I’ll be honest I wasn’t expecting significant results because I had already had my dog on a homemade diet with a vitamin mix.

Better in Just One Day

However, she was struggling with chronic diarrhea for over 6 weeks and nothing I tried was helping, except antibiotics. Within one day on Canine Health she was back to normal! She has kidney so I’m going to stick with Canine Health or Veg-to-Bowl.

We Could Not Be Happier!

Please share our experience with other pet parents. We want everyone to know about Dr. Harvey’s!
I only wish I had known about Dr. Harvey’s sooner!

Thanks so much!

Eating Problem Solved!

Posted By The Team at Dr. Harvey's

Murphy

Our New Rescue Refused to Eat!

Our dog Murphy was rescued in December. They found him abandoned in a home in North Georgia. We figured he would be “thrilled” with premium dog food and fresh cooked chicken spread across the top. He was very picky and only ate the chicken, so switched to another premium dog food. And then switched again for a third time. This went on for 3 months…. he walked up to his food, sniffed, and walked away.

We Found Dr. Harvey’s and He Licked the Bowl Clean!

Then one day I was perusing the Shih Tzu site on Facebook and I saw an ad for Dr. Harvey’s. Reading the positive reviews prompted me to order the free sample and it arrived in a few days. I was excited yet apprehensive due to my many previous failures. I fixed the food according to directions and held my breath. My cute Shih Tzu walked up to the food, sniffed it, looked at me, then sniffed it again….and then began eating! He actually ate the whole bowl of veggies and chicken. Licked the bowl clean!

It Smells So Good

I could not wait until the next meal to see if it happened again. It did! And again, and again. Of course, I was thrilled, as was my dog, Murphy. So now I feed him this twice a day, with chopped chicken, fish, or beef mixed into the veg-to- bowl. It smells so good I feel like I, too, could eat it! Seriously!

Thank You- We are Both So Happy!

This was a great find for me because none of the premium dog foods interested my boy. Murphy had dental problems when rescued and had about 4-5 teeth pulled. So, eating the hard-crunchy dog food, (softened with warm water), was difficult for him. I am so happy that I stumbled across this fantastic product for our sweet rescue. (and he, obviously, is very happy, too!)

Thank you so much for the free sample…. Murphy and I are both relieved his eating problem has been solved!

Sincerely,

Marilyn McGrath and Murphy

Kidney Levels Drastically Improved

Posted By The Team at Dr. Harvey's

High Kidney Levels

I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your food! My husband and I have a 10 or 11 year old terrier mix named Juno who went in for blood work to make sure we could put her under for teeth cleaning. The results revealed her kidney levels were high.

Juno Testimonial

No Prescription Food for Juno!

The vet suggested putting her on a prescription diet i.e. Science Diet. Well, I did not want that, I have heard many horror stories about that! My fur baby’s health means a lot to me. So, at the beginning we were feeding her homemade food such as turkey, broccoli and rice, but then her teeth were getting worse. We needed to feed her dry food to help remove tartar etc. So, we researched high and low for a good high quality dry food that was made in the US.

Her Levels Improved Drastically

Well, I guess that wasn’t good either, because after feeding her Canine Health, her kidney levels drastically improved. She also had energy like she had when she was younger. We could tell she was feeling better! I was baffled that even with the expensive “high quality” dry food her health was declining. Not sure what it is, but Dr. Harvey thank you so much!!! Not sure what we would do without you!

Thank you!
Misty Angulo and Juno
