Commercial pet food has existed for only about 80 years. The food we are most familiar with for pets is the artificial diet of kibble and canned food. Prior to the advent of these “pet foods” dogs and cats ate scraps from their owners tables. There is no evidence that feeding commercial pet food has been a benefit to domestic dogs and cats and in fact there is evidence that these commercial and denatured, poor quality foods are dangerous and detrimental to our pets long term good health.
These two forms of pet food, kibble and canned, have been the mainstay of commercial offerings for dogs and cats. The last decade has shown a sharp increase in a demand for a different kind of food as guardians have begun to understand the enormous benefits of feeding foods that are neither canned nor kibbled. As the benefits of feeding raw foods and fresh whole foods have become evident to guardians worldwide a revolution in the feeding of pets has begun. As the understanding of optimal nutrition for pets has made clear that kibble and canned foods are not an appropriate diet for animals, new healthier and more nutritious ways of feeding whole foods have become available.
One of the newer and better options that is quickly gaining in popularity throughout the country is freeze-dried foods.
Pets parents have quickly understood the benefits and convenience of feeding a freeze-dried diet to their dogs and cats.
Freeze-dried foods can provide all of the many health benefits of frozen raw foods without much of the mess and fuss of a frozen or refrigerated diet.
Those who feed raw diets believe that this is a far healthier way to nourish their dogs and cats. They often see dramatic improvements in their dog’s health after switching to a pure whole food diet. Dogs plagued with various skin allergies, picky eaters and overweight dogs improve when they fed a strict diet of whole raw foods. Meats and vegetables can be freeze-dried to make this type of diet easy to prepare. In most cases, freeze dried foods are “just add water and serve”. This gives dogs and cats the benefits of a homemade raw diet as freeze drying leaves the ingredients as close to fresh as possible and does not require additional chemical preservative to stay for long periods of time at room temperature.
Feeding frozen or fresh raw foods can be messy and time-consuming especially if you have to gather all the ingredients yourself and try to balance your dog’s nutritional needs.
Ease of use is only one reason why a freeze-dried diet can be perfect for those who want to feed raw, but want the convenience of kibble.
It has the ease and convenience of kibble yet it’s comprised of the same ingredients as a raw or fresh diet and contains no preservatives. The food is not messy to prepare or feed. The food will already be nutritionally balanced so you don’t have to spend time choosing the ingredients or making the food yourself. You can still give your dog raw bones for recreational chewing. Never give your dog cooked bones. Freeze-dried foods also have a long shelf life making them ideal for traveling with your dog or cat and for keeping in an emergency survival kit. No additional refrigeration or freezing is required. You can store freeze-dried foods easily in any kitchen cabinet.
Freeze-drying is a process that removes moisture from the ingredient without the use of heat as in dehydration. All the guardian needs to do is add water back to the freeze-dried food to rehydrate it.
The freeze-drying process includes freezing the food, lowering the pressure around the food, removing the moisture, and sealing the product. The freeze-drying process acts as a preservative, which is how the food can last for so long without any other preservatives.
When choosing a freeze-dried food look at the ingredient list and consider the same things you would consider when choosing a raw food diet for your dog or cat. Check the amount of protein, fat, and fiber on the guaranteed analysis. Freeze-dried foods are a great alternative for people who want to feed a raw or home cooked diet to their dog or cat. Animals will absorb the same nutritional benefits of eating raw foods without the mess. The foods are nutritionally balanced, easy to handle and store, plus they keep for a long time. We recommend making sure the ingredients are sourced in the USA and that the food in made in the US.
In 2013 Dr. Harvey’s launched Oracle, a unique line of freeze-dried foods for dogs and cats. Freeze-dried foods are a great alternative for people who want to feed a raw diet but do not want to deal with frozen foods. Dogs get the same nutritional benefits of eating raw without the mess. Oracle is nutritionally balanced and high in protein, vitamins and minerals. Oracle for dogs and cats is easy to handle and store and it keeps at room temperature for a long time.
The reception for this unique food has been overwhelmingly positive. Pet parents are thrilled to find the Dr. Harvey’s quality in a complete food. Oracle provides the perfect diet for the pickiest of eaters and for the most discerning of pet parents. Made with freeze-dried antibiotic and hormone free proteins, Oracle provides the highest quality nutrition for dogs and cats. Oracle’s special blend of protein, vegetables and herbs makes this “just add water” diet the perfect solution for guardians who want the best diet and do not have the time to prepare homemade raw food from scratch. Oracle has become very popular for dogs suffering from allergies, obesity and other health issues and is especially helpful with dogs and cats that are extremely finicky.
Dr. Harvey’s is proud to have made such a fine and convenient food that is so close to the fresh foods that we have offered to pet parents for over a quarter century. Oracle is seeing the future of animal nutrition.
This is never an easy subject. No one wants to talk about it. But if your dog has problems with loose stools you want to read on. Chances are you feel you have tried everything. You have probably looked and looked for answers. You probably have tried many different foods, various home remedies and you have certainly consulted your vet. You may be terribly frustrated because you feel there are no real answers.
Nothing is quite as difficult to deal with, in terms of living a happy and peaceful life with your dog, as living with chronic diarrhea. And yet this is an all too common problem. We get calls and emails about this problem every single day. Yet, as common as the problem is, there are very few solutions that really work, but we have one that does!
Canine Health got its name, The Miracle Dog Food ,when we had so many guardians call us to tell us that they and their dog had experienced a miracle! Chronic diarrhea, sometimes a problem that had persisted for years, was all but gone after just a few days on Canine Health. After hearing “it’s a Miracle!” so many times from those callers, we decided it should be called The Miracle Dog Food for its ability to change a dogs digestion in a matter of days!
Canine Health is a mixture of 6 organic grains and 9 vegetables and herbs to aid with digestion. When rehydrated and mixed with fresh meat this complete, fresh and healthy meal will balance a dog’s intestinal tract and produce formed stools in a matter of days, even in the most difficult cases. We have seen dogs with a history of years of chronic diarrhea have a complete turnaround in just days when switched to this highly nutritious way of feeding.
Many of us at Dr Harvey’s rescue and foster dogs, some of these dogs come to us having been passed from shelter to shelter. They often arrive with explosive diarrhea. We immediately get them started on Canine Health and within just a few days our rescues have formed stools and never have diarrhea again.
It is the combination of the soothing herbs, the organic and unique grains, no preservatives and fresh meats that makes all the difference. For over 30 years now this combination has helped guardians to live a happier life with their companions by helping dogs digest their food properly and produce less waste and formed stools. Canine Health-The Miracle Dog Food has been the answer for thousands of dogs.
These highly absorbable “noble” grains in combination with the proprietary herbal formula works in almost every case!
Canine Health can help to stop chronic diarrhea in dogs. It has helped thousands of dogs to have normal digestion and normal stools. It is wonderful and healthful way to feed your dog and what a wonderful relief to not have to worry about constantly cleaning up a mess. And though no one really likes to talk about it, there is great beauty and relief in a formed stool!
If you have been dealing with this problem, you will know exactly what that means!

I have been on a soapbox for a very long time now. For over 30 years I have taught guardians to avoid commercial pet food for their companion animals. And while I don’t mind, standing on my soapbox sending out the message. I feel sad and frustrated to see so many companion animals that are still so sick. Much of this illness CAN BE AVOIDED.
Gratefully, many people have listened and have found health for their companions. The sadness for me is that so many people have not heard the message. The Internet has been amazing in helping guardians find good information about the optimal way to feed their companions, but they have had to battle the world of advertising and unfortunately the veterinary community, which for the most part continue to mimic the claims of the commercial pet food companies. The number of educated and informed consumers has grown enormously over the past 30 years and while this is wonderful to see, there are still so many guardians who innocently continue to feed commercial pet food and regrettably only realize how detrimental this is to their pet when their beloved companion becomes ill.
The incidence of acquired disease in animals continues to grow.
The message that I have taught for 30 years has not changed, but the message has intensified as I have seen the commercial pet food world continue to provide inferior foods for companion animals that have caused immeasurable suffering in our companion animal community.
For 30 years I have taught that the use of chemicals, dyes, preservatives and poor quality protein in commercial pet foods is detrimental to the health of our pets. I find that I must continue to speak on behalf of companion animals and their loving guardians. Rather than seeing an improvement in the foods that are available to our companions,the foods that are available today are far worse than even 30 years ago.
Every single day I receive emails about dogs that are suffering from renal failure or cancer. This is somewhat crazy. Why are we seeing this epidemic rise in kidney disease, allergies, joint disease and cancer in dogs? There is no question in my mind that the diet is the number one reason for this. Everyone is worried about calcium/phosphorous ratios and they forget to look at the big picture. You can balance the calcium, you can lower the protein, but if you fail to consider the quality of the protein and all of the adulterated and synthetic ingredients, you have failed to understand the way diet actually affects the health of companion animals.
It is the quality of the food that matters. Is the food tainted with chemicals, preservatives, dyes, flavoring, salt, sugar and dyes? Additives and synthetic ingredients-animals need REAL food. That IMHO is the reason that we are seeing such degenerative disease in our companion animal population. It has been my life’s work to impart this knowledge to animal guardians. I have spoken to thousands of you and I know there are thousands more with whom I have not spoken who are looking for answers for their beloved companions.
I want all of you to know that I have seen truly miraculous changes in animals whose guardians seek a different path and are willing to change their diet to a REAL all-natural diet. So if I have had any impact in my life’s work, it is that I have spoken out to let others know that animals are very sensitive beings and that their health is in the hands of their guardians. I know that feeding a commercial dog food for life will be a major to contributory factor to the long-term health of companion animals. I hope that my words will help many of you make better choices for your companions.
Feeding real food that is unadulterated and pure is the key to good health. Do not be fooled by labels that say “all-natural” when they are not. Read labels. Be careful. Be vigilant. You must find food for your dogs and cats that have no additives, no dyes, no coloring agents and no preservatives. This is my message, because I wish your companion animals the best of health always.
It is sad to say how many cases like this that we hear about. We are happy that Mason is doing better and that his guardians wanted to pay it forward. At their request, we are sharing Mason’s story, in hopes of helping other dogs who may be suffering with the same condition.
We have spoken a few times over the phone, which I can’t tell you how refreshing that is in a world of automated customer service.
When I first called you back in February 2012, my best friend Mason, a 5-year old Boxer-Lab mix was suffering from Acute Renal Failure. His kidneys were functioning at 20% and we were preparing for the worst.
With the exception of working from home, the signs were so subtle, I would have never known anything was up with him until it was too late. I took him to multiple vets, all prescribing medications, fluids, etc. None of which were working. We had been feeding him a premium kibble food, a choice that runs over $80 a bag and seemingly has a short ingredient list (compared to other store-bought pet foods).
We found your product through a magazine article and I immediately called and you answered! Thank you so much for taking the time to speak with me about what you thought was going on with Mason on a nutritional level. Helping me plan his meals with highly digestible protein sources and fats I could control have seemingly saved, or at least
extended his life.
One year later his kidneys are functioning at 46%! A MIRACLE considering the permanent damage to his constitution. We have kept on a mixture of The Canine Health Formula and Veg-to-Bowl and I continually make small adjustments to the quantities to help him maintain an ideal weight without being too hungry or too full.
Again, I can’t thank you enough for saving our family member and hopefully the people we’ve hooked on the brand help pay this forward to their animals and back to you. Thank you for what you do.

We received this email from a very grateful guardian and felt we needed to share it with everyone. There are many lessons to be learned by reading Dana and Fifi’s story.
Dear Dr. Harvey,
I just wanted to send you a quick note to tell you thank you for all of your help. When I first got my little Fifi 6 months ago (she is a 4.5 lb pomeranian) she was in bad shape. Fifi is a retired show dog who I got from a breeder. I thought that by getting a dog from a breeder that I could rest assured that this dog was free from any ailments and illnesses. However, I was very wrong. Despite getting a letter from the breeder’s vet assuring that Fifi was very healthy, when I took her to my own vet it was quite a different story.
To my surprise, Fifi had kidney disease and was spilling large amounts of protein in her urine. She also had high blood pressure, a thyroid condition, an enlarged heart and an ear infection.
My heart sank when she said, “This is serious. Fifi is a very, very sick dog. If you don’t want to spend thousands of dollars in her treatments then you might as well just return her to the breeder.” I didn’t want to give up on Fifi; I knew there was something I could do. Immediately I got on the internet and began researching natural remedies for her many illnesses.
Six months later since we have been giving her the Dr. Harvey’s food, Fifi has improved tremendously! All of her kidney lab test results are within healthy rage, her blood pressure is normal, and her chest x-rays show no sign of an enlarged heart. Additionally, she has never had another ear infection. I still have to give her medication to control her blood pressure and thyroid, but besides that the Dr. Harvey’s diet IS her primary medicine
I am completely impressed by the company. Dr. Harvey has always been there for any questions I have had. Unfortunately, my vet does not agree with me feeding her Dr. Harvey’s diet and wants me to give her the special canned kidney dog food. After talking to Dr. Harvey I learned that feeding that food to my dog is the WORST thing you can do.
After all her lab results came back normal, however, there wasn’t very much that she could argue; the proof was in the test results. I also want to say thank you to Dr. Harvey for the continued support. In addition to support on how to feed the food specifically for my dog’s conditions, he also gave other holistic remedies to try.
I am blown away by this company. Never did I imagine that I would be speaking to the doctor himself who created this wonderful food. I know he is an extremely busy man, but whenever I speak to him, he treats Fifi’s health with the utmost concern and care.
I can’t thank Dr. Harvey and the entire company enough! I will feed this food to my dog for the rest of her life. :)
Dana (Fifi’s Mom) and Fifi
Dr. Harvey’s Whole Food and Herbal Supplements for dogs and cats enhance the health of companion animals. I created this unique line to help companion animals to achieve optimal wellness without the use of harmful chemicals and drugs. Each all-natural vitamin and mineral supplement formula uses a specific mixture of organic and wild crafted herbs to help animals find balance and wellness. These natural herbal powdered formulas are based on my knowledge of how each herb stimulates the body and how they work synergistically to optimize the effect that each herb has on the other. Herbs also contain many minerals and vitamins that promote health and healing.
My Herbal Supplements are unique in the animal world. There are no synthetic vitamins added into any of the formulae. The vitamins come from natural foods that contain concentrated amounts of vitamins and minerals in the way nature intended them to be absorbed by the body. Each formula is made in a base of bee pollen, spirulina, lecithin, nutritional yeast, garlic, alfalfa and kelp and then made specific by the addition of wild crafted and organic herbs. Each formula comes in a powdered form that can be easily sprinkled on your pet’s food.
Whole foods are those foods, which contain everything needed for life. That is why each of my Whole Food Supplements contain spirulina, nutritional yeast, kelp, flax seed meal, lecithin, alfalfa, bee pollen and garlic.
Herbal healing has been used for thousands of years in many different cultures. Animals can benefit greatly from the healing properties of certain herbs. In fact, in the wild, animals often find and eat herbs that grow in nature, as they instinctively know how to heal themselves.
I have always felt that nature has a plan and that we should try and follow nature’s plan as best as we can. This means that getting our vitamins and minerals from food sources is of utmost importance. The body does know the difference between a
“natural” substance and a “synthetic” substance. Our supplements provide the vitamins and minerals that are needed to support the body using only natural food-based sources. Just the way nature intended.
Our supplements are so effective that we hear success story after success story. Whether it is Ortho Flex that eases your pup’s joint problems or Relax and Stress that helps your pup’s fears and can help excessive barking subside, these supplements have a positive, effective influence on your pet’s health.
Often replacing the need for drug therapy, herbal supplements work without the side –effects of prescription drugs.
