This wonderful dog mom wrote to tell us about her amazing senior dog, Teddy Bear. Teddy Bear is now 18 years young! Teddy’s mom, Noreen, wanted to say thank you to Dr. Harvey’s. Noreen knows that she has helped to give Teddy a long and healthy life by feeding Dr. Harvey’s Canine Health for most of his life. We are sharing this wonderful email and photo from Teddy’s mom, because we know how important health and longevity are to every pet parent. We all want our dogs to live healthy, long lives and we know that feeding real food is one of the most important ways to help our dogs achieve this. We really had to share this amazing story with you!
Here is Noreen’s email:
I just wanted to thank you for the great product that I have been feeding the “love of my life” for many years. My “pound puppy” will be 18 years-old in a couple of weeks and I credit his longevity to his food. I have been feeding him Canine Health, the Miracle Dog Food pre-mix for at least the past 7 or 8 years (since my dear friend recommended it).
I am sure his good health is a direct result of his diet. He has had 2 cancer surgeries and still has a very slow growing cancer that his vet says he will die of natural causes sooner than from the cancer.
I would like you to know that I think your product is made with care and honest concern for the animals, and I am so grateful.
I am vegetarian, but I cook his food with animal protein, I was alternating between hard-boiled eggs, Chicken breast ground Turkey and Beef (his vet says he needs red meat, so now he gets 90% lean Angus beef with his Canine Health. He is doing really well. I just wanted to let you know that I appreciate a high quality food for my best bud. Thank you!
I’ve attached is a photo of Teddy Bear at his Sweet Sixteen Birthday Party!
Best regards and thank you,
Noreen Lotko & Teddy Bear
Adorable French Bulldog,Norman, aka Stormin’ Norman, had a terrible problem. His mom Stacy wrote to tell us that putting Norman on Canine Health made his problems disappear. There were other benefits too! We wanted to share her words with you.
I wanted to write a quick thank you for making a high quality product for my French Bulldog “Stormin’ Norman”. I adopted Norman at the age of 5 and noticed that he was having digestive and regurgitation issues.
He had reflux so bad that I had to put him on an antacid! At the suggestion of my holistic vet I called your company and spoke with a representative.
I stopped using dry kibble and changed to your Canine Health-The Miracle Dog Food and added tofu for protein.
In just 3 days I noticed his regurgitation stopped completely.
Norman’s coat has completely changed and is beautiful, also his personality and energy level have improved. He is such a happy guy! I never knew how sick his old food was making him until I put him on your food.
We are often stopped by people who comment on Norman and I tell everyone about your food!
Keep up the great work and providing wonderful products.
Stacy and Norman
Wonderful pet parent, Cindy, sent Sage’s story to us. Sage’s story is truly amazing. We love sharing these stories as we always hope that other pet parents, who are looking for answers will find them here.
Dear Dr Harvey,
It’s been a few weeks since I’ve given you an update on Sage,the dog with a liver shunt, epilepsy, low heart rate, etc. – a rescue we’ve had since March 2014. At our vet’s recommendation we had been feeding her Prescription Diet L/D. After seeing no positive improvements and watching her weight increase & energy level decrease, I said no more.
We introduced her to Veg-To-Bowl on Nov 20, 2014. The change has been dramatic as you can see in the attached video. More energy & no more weight gain. No more skin bumps or scratching & less shedding. AND no seizures now for almost 7 weeks – a record!!! We, and of course, Sage could not be happier!
Thank you for all you do to provide pets like Sage quality, wholesome, nutritional products. I added Veg- to-Bowl to my soup and loved it! Dr. Harvey, thank you for your phone calls and recommendations. Sage deserved this after all she had been through at a puppy mill and is a beautiful pet!
For over 30 years we have been working with pet parents to find the very best way to heal their companions. We teach pet parents how to keep their companions healthy, increase longevity and how best to maintain health and wellness for a happy, long life.
We are happy that so many people have found the answers they needed by visiting our website and using our products. This is why we do what we do.
Now we have gone just one step further to provide the healthiest treat possible. We now use only USDA Certified Organic sweet potatoes to make our Sweet Potate’r treats, providing companion dogs the very best treat possible.
We are proud to offer the newest organic version of our Sweet Potate’r Chews and Fries
Our new chews and fries are softer and very chewy, making them super fun and healthy for all dogs.
We have been offering sweet potatoes as treats for dogs for many years.
We make sweet potatoes as an alternative to rawhide and molded chews, because we know that those chews are just not healthy for dogs. We think having a truly healthy chew for dogs is very important.
Sweet potatoes are healthy for dogs and when they are dehydrated they make a wonderful healthy chew treat for dogs. Most dogs love sweet potatoes! Dr. Harvey’s Sweet Potate’r Chews and Fries are dehydrated so that they are naturally chewy and because they are gently dehydrated the sweet potatoes retain their high nutritional value without any preservatives.
At Dr. Harvey’s, we use only 100% human grade ingredients in ALL of our products. We do not add, preservatives, dyes, flavoring, salt, sugar or any synthetic ingredients of any kind.
We are proud to offer the newest organic version of our Sweet Potate’r Chews and Fries.
Dr. Harvey’s Sweet Potate’r Chews and Fries are better than ever and your dogs will love them more than ever!
Dr. Harvey’s will be launching our Organic Coconut Smiles next week! These treats are sure to become a special in your home.
Your local store can order Coconut Smiles for you. They are now ready to ship!
Coconut Smiles are made of USDA organic dried coconut. Our dried Coconut Smiles offer the same dietary benefits as coconut oil and is an excellent source of dietary fiber. Dogs go crazy for this super-healthy, nutty treat!
Dr. Harvey’s Coconut Smiles are not only a great treat that dogs love, but they are made from pure, organic, dehydrated coconut which many researchers believe to be a “superfood”.
Now you can offer your customers a great new healthy treat from Dr. Harvey’s!
According to Dr. Mary Enig, a Ph.D. nutritionist and biochemist and a world leading expert on fats and oils, coconut contains lauric acid that forms into monolaurin, an antiviral and antibacterial substance.
Dr. Enig found coconut oil to be rich in lauric acid, a health-promoting fatty acid with anti-microbial properties that is being used in trials with AIDS patients and others suffering from compromised immune systems. Dr. Enig’s theories about “conditionally essential” saturated fats are already proving to be one of the missing links to the development of effective anti-aging therapies as well as many other therapies for better health.
Coconut Smiles are available. You can order them here now! Click Here to Order

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.

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.

We know you will enjoy the read and will be happy to help someone else by passing it on.
Thank you always,
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 have been using Veg to Bowl for safe successful weight loss for over a decade now. Veg-to-Bowl provides a very low fat, low calorie base that is also filled with natural fiber. It provides whole food sources of vitamins and minerals and it is very satisfying for dogs so they don’t have to feel hungry.
Using Veg-to-Bowl with a lower fat, but high quality protein like chicken or fish makes the perfect meal to achieve weight-loss in a slow, but consistent way. Add to this way of feeding some addition exercise and playtime and your dog WILL lose weight!
I know it sounds almost too simple, but it really is THAT simple and VERY, VERY successful!
Veg-to-Bowl has helped thousands of dogs lose weight in a healthy way. I cannot tell you how important this is to your dog’s long-term good health and longevity. Keeping your dogs lean and at an optimal weight is one of the most important things you can do for their health. There IS an easy way to get your dog to lose weight; Veg-to-Bowl is the healthiest way to help your overweight dog.

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
