I am so pleased to offer this wonderful little “Book of Miracles” to you! It contains true stories of healing. All of the stories and photos have been sent to us in emails and letters by thankful guardians.
These grateful pet parents want to tell us how
our foods and supplements have helped them to heal their companion dogs when they were desperate for answers.
They want to say thank you and to tell us about their “miracle”. Hearing from these guardians is the most rewarding part of our work.
The book shows how Dr. Harvey’s foods are the best alternative to “prescription diets” and how hopeless many of these pet parents felt before finding a “miracle” by using our products.
These thankful pet parents also want to share their stories in hopes that their experiences will help others who may be desperately looking for answers for their companion.
We are honored to share these stories with you in this informative little booklet. It is our hope that you will read it and share it with your pet parent friends.
There are some people who may not know about the healing properties of eating highly nutritional chemical-free foods and how powerful a small change can be!
This is the message that we have shared for over 30 years. We continue to make this information available to all pet parents and hope that you will help us by sharing this book with others.

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

This has to be one of the most wonderful success stories we have ever heard. As with many of the amazing emails that we receive, this reminds us to never give up! We hope that Candy’s story will give hope to others. This is Candy’s story in her mom’s own words.We are honored to have been a small part of Candy’s miraculous recovery
Dear Dr. Harvey,
I just want to update you about Candy! She is doing great after her diagnosis of IMHA-immune-mediated hemolytic anemia,
and her blood transfusions. We almost lost Candy a year ago and thanks to all of your fantastic foods, recommendations, caring, and true love of animals, Candy just celebrated her 7th birthday!
My family and I can never thank you enough for taking time out of your busy schedule to always take my phone calls when Candy’s red blood cell count was as low as six. It was recommended we put her to sleep. You explained we were simply buying time for her system to get rid of whatever she got hold of and you were so right!!!
Dr. Harvey, who came highly recommended to me by my brother, Kevin, is a true miracle worker! Candy, our Dachshund, is the true Living Proof Miracle Dog.
She is back to living a normal, fun-filled, healthy life thanks to the one and only Dr. Harvey who never gave up on Candy!!! *This picture was taken this past January 2014.
It is startling for us to hear about so many cases of kidney problems in dogs. We have been following Champ and his mom, Judy, and their journey through the difficult time since getting this devastating diagnosis. We wanted to share this here so that other pet parents, who my be struggling with a similar issue, may see that there is hope, even in the most advanced cases. Here is Champ’s story so far…
Dear Dr. Harvey,
Champ is our five-year-old Golden Retriever who we adopted three years ago. He was rescued from a high kill shelter in South Carolina by a Long Island Humane Society just 24 hours before he was to be euthanized. Champ is a very loving and loyal dog. We have spent many hours roaming the woods and fields during all seasons.
Our medical journey with Champ began on December 20, 2013.
For a few months prior, we had noticed Champ losing some weight. There were also a few days where he did not have much of an appetite. But most days, he was his normal active and energetic self. When I took Champ to his December veterinarian appointment, I was shocked to get the diagnosis of stage 4 kidney failure!
I was told survival outlook was most likely just weeks. I left Champ overnight at the vet to receive IV fluids. When I picked him up the next day and was given 5 different medications along with a phosphorus binder. They recommended a “prescription diet”. Champ was eating next to nothing at this time.
As soon as I got Champ home I began searching the Internet for information and resources to help me understand this condition. On January 2nd we tried the prescription dog food. I tried cooking for him. It was hit or miss, some days he would eat and some days nothing at all. He always wanted to go for his walks. I don’t know where he got the energy, as he was really not eating!
At this time, I came across Canine Health, the all-natural food pre-mix food by Dr. Harvey. There was a website address and toll free number. I had nothing to lose, I sent an e-mail explaining what was happening with Champ and held my breath hoping for a reply.
Within an hour, Wendy e-mailed me and said Dr. Harvey wanted to speak with me and to please call. I did right away. I told him everything and he said to start Champ on Kefir right away. I had just ordered the Canine Health-The Miracle Dog Food, was to call him when I received it so he could help me portion what Champ needed.
Champ has been eating Canine Health for a few days by now. It did take him a few meals before he started to really eat his food.
Dr. Harvey was guided me on the protein amounts to use in Champ’s food. We decided to decrease the protein a bit to try and bring down his Bun. He also said I needed to get Champ on fluids right away. On Jan. 11th another urinalysis was done. I was told kidney function was very poor there was a lot of protein and bacteria in urine. Again, I was told a very bleak outlook.
On Jan.20th I spoke with Dr. Harvey again, Champ was not eating as well as he had been. Dr. Harvey told me not to stress, because that would get Champ stressed. Dr. Harvey helped me come up with a new game plan. I asked the vet for Sub Q Fluids to be given at home. My vet suggested 500 ml every other day.
By Feb 3rd the urinalysis was much improved. I had taken a sample from Champ first thing that morning by doing a clean catch. *Champ had also gained some weight, up a few pounds thanks to Canine Health! Again, I called Dr. Harvey with results. New game plan, we need to get the Bun down. We cut his daily protein amounts and I began giving 500 ml of Sub Q fluids every day. I continued giving 3600 mg of aluminum hydroxide powder divided among 3 meals per day.
We didn’t change anything else except that Dr. Harvey told me to add one sweet potato per day to Champ’s food. This should help him gain a little more weight. I am so thankful for Dr. Harvey and Wendy. They are always available to help day or night. They genuinely care about our animal companions. I know Champ’s journey is ongoing and I am learning new things every day. It is reassuring to know Dr. Harvey is only a phone call away. He expects me to call after every vet appointment to discuss results. I am thankful for that!
Champ is doing great! He is eating 8 scoops of Canine Health-The Miracle Dog Food per day along with a sweet potato mixed in. He licks his dish clean! I can’t tell you how good it is to see that considering 6 weeks ago we were begging him to eat with little success.
Thank you Dr. Harvey. I am so glad I stumbled upon this website. I appreciate the support you offer and the quick response to a phone call or e-mail. Thanks for caring. Judy
We are pleased to share with you the article from the December 2013 PetFood Industry magazine. Dr. Harvey’s is the cover story for the issue and there is a wonderful article about the company inside the issue.
PetFood Industry magazine showed Dr. Harvey’s as the family business it is. Featured on the cover is Wendy Shankin-Cohen, President and CEO, Ty Cohen, Director of Design and Technology, Dr. Harvey, Founder and Sasha Basset Cohen, beloved family dog and taste tester extraordinaire.
I have a long story about MeMe and I am glad to share.
It took Dr. Harvey, a doctor in India, and a doctor in London, to help me save her.
*I know I will always be grateful for Dr. Harvey’s voice at such a scary time for me. After $4,000 in Vet bills, all I needed was SBL’s Liv-T, and Dr. Harvey’s Veg to Bowl to save my dog!
I no longer test her ALT numbers. But with Vets treatments they were climbing, last count… Bile Acid Test was 986. (normal 10-100) That was the day I called Dr. Harvey.
I remember Dr. Harvey telling me “your dog has a greater chance of having a black bear and a polar bear over for lunch, than getting Heartworm” One pill of Trifexis and she was down for the count.
By the time it had done its total damage MeMe’s liver had enlarged 3 fold, her gallbladder was filled with sludge, and she had severe pancreatitis.
So, after the antibiotics and RX Vet food (God help us all) The numbers continued to climb. Her eyes were dull, draining, and she was blowing her coat. She went from show dog to pound puppy in 3 months.
Dr Harvey suggested Kefir, Veg to Bowl and cooking Chicken slightly. I just couldn’t get her to eat. She was so ill. A Vet in India, suggested SBL’s Liv-T and continue with Kefir and Dr. Harvey’s Veg-to-Bowl with chicken.
Two months later after keeping her on this diet, MeMe had lost her eye staining, was growing her coat, and begging for food. By 6 months she was eating raw. * I have not seen a Vet in nearly a year.*
I won’t go back again. Homeopathic, natural or nothing is my only way from now on. I can no longer continue on with traditional veterinarian’s, they believe in the chemicals that do harm.
I will always recommend Dr. Harvey, and will continue to search for his products locally. Here are some photos of her eyes before and after.
Here you can see the staining.
Her eyes are clean and the staining is gone!
Today She looks even better!
In addition she is healthy and that’s the best part!
Happy Holidays to all of you…
Salli and MeMe
