Obesity in dogs is a serious problem. Dogs who are overweight are at risk for many serious health issues. Including:
• Respiratory compromise
• Heat intolerance
• Hypertension-heart disease
• Liver disease or dysfunction
• Osteoarthritis-joint and back problems
• Increased surgical risk
• Lowered immune system function
• Increased risk of developing cancer
When the vet tells a pet parent that their dog needs to lose weight. Pet parents are either offered a “prescription” food or told to get a (heaven forbid) low calorie or diet kibbled food. Both of these solutions will fail to resolve the problem. This leaves pet parents at a loss to try and find a solution to this serious problem.
Calorie restriction is not the only important component of weight loss. Feeding kibble of any kind, which is usually one of the main contributory factors in obesity is a poor solution and doomed to fail. What is even more troubling is that “low calorie” kibble is an unhealthy way to try and achieve weight loss in dogs.
Dogs become obese due to a number of factors, but the number one reason is the poor quality of commercial kibbled dog food. These poor quality, synthetic, chemical and sugar-laden pellets are what is causing dogs to gain weight in ever growing numbers. Kibble dooms many dogs to gain weight even when less food is given. The problem has become epidemic because so many pet parents chose to feed kibble. Even the healthy “natural” brands of commercial kibble and treats can cause dogs to gain weight. Overfeeding and lack of exercise are also contributory. Some breeds tend to be more at risk for obesity, but all dogs are susceptible.
I do not want to minimize the seriousness of this condition and it saddens me that so few pet parents know what to do to improve their dog’s obesity. They have no idea how to help their pet to get to and maintain a normal weight. I have been helping dogs lose weight safely for many years. In fact, it is no mystery and it is not really that hard to correct!

We recently received this email and were so moved when we read Cleo’s story that we wrote to Judi to ask her if we could post the story. Judi was kind enough to agree to sharing her story with others. We know that Judi understands the power that this type of story can have. We normally only post emails in our “What People are Saying” section, but this was so important we decided to post it on our blog.
Our hope is that when guardians share their experiences in this way that their experience may to help another guardian to find an answer for their companion.
We know that not everyone will have such a wonderful outcome, but we also believe that “terminals are for buses”.
If one companion animal gets better from this story, then we have done a good job and Judi has done a great thing by sharing her story with others.
Six years ago, my Great Pyrenees was diagnosed with an aggressive cancer at the age of 5.
Cleo is an exceptional member of our family. She has a vocabulary of over 275 words and is a very intuitive and sensitive friend and companion! To look into her deep and doleful eyes takes your breath away. She is indeed a great, Great Pyrenees and we are very attached to each each other and truly appreciate one another.
At the time I discovered the small cancerous tumor on her nose, I was in the middle of a bitter divorce and my ex-husband wanted to put her down. Cleo’s first set of “parents” divorced and didn’t want to keep their 2 Pyrenees, Caesar and Cleopatra. We rescued her when she was 3. I was beside myself with the thought of losing her now, in addition to the break-up of our marriage, as well as the sudden death of my mother at the age of 96. This all happened at the same time.
My cousin, Dana, advised me to call Dr. Harvey and he told me that Cleo’s cancer didn’t have to be a death sentence. His advice lead me to his website which is filled with specific information on food preparation for dogs and cats. In addition to his dog food alternative, “canine health” – which is human grade food, there is a ton of info on nutrients that are vital for good health for pets and for we humans.
First thing I did was to stop feeding Cleo regular dog food which is loaded with things that are bad for dogs. Good health for everyone begins in the kitchen. It’s Dr. Harvey’s philosophy and my family has always felt strongly about the fact that you are what you eat. From what I learned on Dr. Harvey’s site.
I chose to give Cleo (who is now going on 12 and looks great and feels good): ester c, manganese, alfalfa for her joints, as well as CoQ-10, which I also take, and alpha lipoic acid and pycnogenol.
I believe that everything happens for a reason. Finding Dr. Harvey and learning from him how to blend foods for my dog as well as what nutrients are vital to good health has truly been a blessing!
Thank you so very much,"Judi B and Cleo
We received this amazing message from Patty, a pet parent, who was searching for answers for different problems for her 3 dogs. The following is what she wrote to us…
I have three dogs with three different issues. I was in search of a quality product that I could feed my dogs that they would like and I would like to buy. I had tried everything even home cooking. Then one day in Feb 2010, I found a bag of Dr. Harvey’s Canine Health-The Miracle Dog Food and it changed my life as well as my dogs’ lives.
As far as the customer service at Dr. Harvey’s, there is none better on the planet. You can speak to Dr. Harvey’s regarding your animals’ issues and what you can do to help your animal. Yes, speak to Dr. Harvey, he does exist.
Once you use this food, even if it is just for a week you will see results. I use the food, treats and the line of supplements. As far as the healing cream you can use it anywhere on the dog, I have used it on myself too. I just don’t have enough words for how all of these products changed all of my dogs’ lives for the better.
My 13 year old Shih Tzu Mai-Tai was having digestive and constipation issues, as a lot of dogs suffer from as they age. I changed him to Dr. Harvey’s Canine Health-The Miracle Dog Food and he was like a young pup again no issues at all with digestion or constipation.
My 4 year old Shih Tzu, Midori ,was having all sorts of allergy issues as severe as fistulas on her anus. We saw a dermatologist, who suggested medicine for life so the problem wouldn’t reoccur. She was only 4 years old; medicines can change kidney and liver values for the worse. I switched her to Dr. Harvey’s Canine Health-The Miracle Dog Food where I control what type of protein and how much she gets. She is now 8 years old and thrives on this food.
My 4 year old Shih Tzu, Mojito, was sick since I got him as a young pup. He had all sorts of digestive and bowel issues. His issues were so severe that my veterinarian had done every test imaginable on him to rule out so many things. My veterinarian wanted me to see a gastro specialist for a colonoscopy on my 4 year old dog.I was desperate to find something that would help. That is when I tried the Dr. Harvey’s Canine Miracle……..believe me when I tell you it is a true miracle! He is now 8 years old and loves his food; he can’t wait for those eight minutes to be over so he can eat!
Mojito also has suffered from bug bites. He makes himself bleed from biting them. In one day of applying the Dr. Harvey’s Healing Cream three times the next morning I couldn’t find the bites …….I thought it was the other leg………*they was gone just like that*.
When I tell you that you will not be disappointed with any of Dr. Harvey’s products, you will not. As a consumer, I have never been this impressed with the product and the service that comes with buying this product; it is like no other company. You ask why? The answer is clear. It is because this company loves what they do and they care and it shows!
Remember all of my dogs had different issues…………..to me it is a real miracle all the issues were resolved because of this incredible food. Thank you so very much, Patty Lurz – Mt Sinai, NY
