This is truly one of the worst cases of abuse that we have ever seen, but it is also a magical story that is filled with hope and love. We continue to believe that we need to share this type of story with you. as people share them with us. We know that this story will anger and then inspire you.
The courage of this little dog is remarkable and is only matched by the courage of the people who took him into their lives and gave him a home filled with love. Christina shared with us that Booker was abused for the first 10 years of his life. He was scheduled to be put down the day that Christina and her husband, Frank, found him and took him home with them. Amazing and wonderful…
“Dear Dr. Harvey,
After sharing Donny’s story I can’t believe I forgot to share the story of my other Italian Greyhound, Booker!
Dr. Harveys food actually saved this old dog’s life! even his toenails are bright white once again! You have to see his entire photostory to get the jist of what THIS poor dog went through. He loves Dr Harvey’s food! I have photos here of him before and after your food!
The owner was not making sure he ate his meals! It is hard for him to get food INTO his mouth since his bottom jaw does not work! Because of this his mouth doesn’t close and his tongue hangs out.
Booker’s teeth rotted horribly and painfully out of his mouth. at one point, the vet’s said that the stench was unreal. His head swelled from infection until they all fell out. He was made to stay in that condition for years.salivary gland tumor that was removed after his life was saved.
I did not take this photo…i wanted everyone to see where this little guy came from
This photo was taken the day before his scheduled death..
Brothers rescued—-only a day before death at the shelter.
We rescued him from Wisconsin in December and within the 6 months I have now had him he has gotten so much better. He is a miracle dog!
I use the *Ortho-Flex Powdered Supplement from

The Green Connoisseur, subtitled " Your Escort to a Luxurious and Eco-Conscious Lifestyle" is an extremely informative website for all things green. Recently we were approached by one of the staff writers from the Green Connoisseur asking if she could write an article about Dr. Harvey’s.
Below is the lovely article that Lucy Brake wrote and posted about Dr. Harvey’s products. After reading, please take a moment to visit The Green Connoisseur
to discover insightful info on health, nutrition and living an ecologically responsible life.
For many of us, our family pet is a really important member of our home. We want to make sure our dog, cat or bird is getting the best nutrition available without compromising the environment. Dr. Harvey’s has created nutritional food and grooming treatments for our pets that are kind to the planet. You don’t have to compromise your furry and feathered friend’s diet and health in order to treat them to a bit of green luxury.
Over 30 years ago, a successful nutritionist and animal lover, Dr Harvey, came to the realisation that we were feeding our pets blatantly unhealthy diets. These traditional pet foods contained lots of nasty chemicals, preservatives, dyes and colouring agents. He was concerned that these sub-optimal diets meant that our animals were becoming unnecessarily ill, lowering their quality of life and shortening their life spans. From this concern, came the concept of all-natural food for pets.
The team at Dr Harvey’s believes that feeding animals food made from chemical-laden ingredients is the number one reason for the rapid rise in degenerative diseases. Healthy products for pets means that they can maintain a strong immune system, avoid diseases and aliments caused by pet food filled with chemicals and also achieve optimal health throughout their lives. Dr Harvey’s champions healthy, natural and chemical-free food for our pets. They also make all their products locally in the USA and are therefore able to keep transportation-related emissions to a minimum. “Our team is committed to helping guardians give their companion animals the very best food there is, made from the best ingredients, and using the best processes.” says Dr Harvey’s.
All of their product lines are prepared with fresh, organic and natural principles in mind. This means that only the highest quality ingredients are used without any processed elements to be seen anywhere on the menu. The Healthy Formulations created by Dr Harvey’s offers fine healthy food as well as safe all-natural products for dogs, cats, birds and horses. These formulations are also kind to the environment. To keep animal companions happy and healthy, the team at Dr Harvey’s develops products which include chemical-free grooming solutions, essential supplements and vitamins as well as nutritious chews and treats. Their yummy looking freeze dried treats for dogs and cats contain no dyes, colouring agents or preservatives. Additionally, they are free or any fillers with no extra salt or sugar.
Dr Harvey’s has been producing luxury all-natural companion food for many years. They package their food and grooming products in eco-friendly containers and have managed to do this without compromising on the ease of use or the ability to keep the product fresh.
The Dr Harvey’s range of nutrition and grooming products means your pets can have a longer, happier and healthier life with less impact on the environment. You can now take even more pleasure in the joy they bring to your life.
We have been working with the wonderful trainer and natural dog enthusiast, Neil Sattin, for the last few months. His blog The Natural Dog Blog should be on your list of “must read” blogs. Below is a review he posted on Dr. Harvey’s Power Patties. Enjoy!
In my review last month I mentioned that I had a secret weapon when it comes to doggie treats. I call it my “secret weapon” because at this point most people don’t recognize what I’m giving their dog when I first use it (that’s the “secret” part), and because (knock on wood) I have NEVER had a dog refuse
to eat this special treat (that’s the “weapon” part). In fact, they usually come back, eagerly, for seconds and thirds. What do I use? Dr. Harvey’s Freeze-Dried Tripe Power Patties
I was actually contacted by Wendy Shankin-Cohen of Dr. Harvey’s (slogan: Fine Health Foods for Companion Animals) awhile back, when I was doing the writing and pre-production for my instructional DVD set. She was wondering if she could send me some products for my review, and I said “yes” with a caveat that it would probably be awhile before I got around to checking it out. A box arrived in the mail, with an assortment of their products, but the pace of life at the time (young baby Zella about to be born) kept me from really paying much attention.
However, one day I was headed out to a lesson, and I didn’t have any hot dogs in the fridge. First impressions can be everything with dogs and humans, so whenever I meet a new (hungry) dog I like to have something especially tasty in my pouch for our first contact. I mentioned something to my wife about having to allow some time to go to the store en route, and she casually asked “how about that box of treats and food that you just got in the mail?”
Sometimes – actually frequently – the universe lines up to give you exactly what you need. And then my wife clubs me over the head to remind me. In this case, it was a pouch-full of freeze dried tripe.
I can’t remember which dog was the first lucky recipient. What I DO remember is that from that moment on, I always made sure I had some of these tripe treats with me whenever I went out for a lesson.
From my perspective, they’re a perfect treat. It’s simply tripe* (nothing added), which as I understand (from Dr. Harvey Cohen himself) has the perfect balance of calcium and phosphorus for a dog’s digestive system, along with omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, and a whole mess of other nutrients. So they’re VERY healthy for dogs. Because they’re freeze-dried, they’re not messy, and you can also easily break apart a single “power patty” to give you multiple treating opportunities (or for smaller dogs). So they’re convenient. And, as I said – dogs LOVE them. Seemingly without exception.
As I mentioned, nearly two years has passed since then. I guess it was finally time to let you all in on the secret to great rapport with a new dog. And you thought it was all the meditation that I’ve been doing! Well, knowing how to “Be the Moose” does help. And so does a fistful of freeze-dried tripe. Please feel free to head over to the Dr. Harvey’s site to find out more about their power patties and the other products that they offer.
Just kidding. Don’t do this!
This is actually part-one of my review of Dr. Harvey’s. I’ve been conducting a trial recently using their “Canine Health” dog food premix, in conjunction with a cooked fresh meat diet for Nola. And I’ve got even more good things to say – coming soon. All-in-all, I’m impressed with the Dr. Harvey’s company – both in terms of their commitment to healthy dogs, and in terms of their commitment to providing their customers with the knowledge necessary to make the right decisions for themselves and their pets.
Neil’s Website is full of training tips and other wonderful information please visit Neil Sattin’s Natural Dog Blog
Alicia’s book has almost an entire page on how to feed pets. She has been a proponent of Dr. Harvey’s Canine Health for many years and she generously mentions this in the book.
Recently she reiterated how she feeds her own animals with Dr. Harvey’s in a blog post on her Kind LIfe Website
We thought we would share the book and Alicia’s active website with you. We thought you would want to read her blog. There are many helpful tips for finding a healthy lifestyle in her writings and her blog is very active. While you may not agree with everything she has to say, there is much to learn by reading about all that she has experienced and how she feels about animals.
