From Puppy Mill to Loving Home
Dear Dr. Harvey,
I wanted to share Sophie’s incredible story with you.
I adopted Sophie in August of 2013. She was a puppy mill breeder.
I rescued her after the puppy mill was shut down in Arkansas. She had never been out of the puppy mill, had puppies for almost 4 years and was possibly 5 years old based on a vet’s assumption. I got her from a local rescue who had her in foster care.
The Vet Gives Me Devastating News
Last March 2019 I felt a strange lump on one of her mammary glands. I took her to the vet and it was biopsied and came back as possibly cancerous.
She had an enlarged heart condition and had to go to OK STATE UNIV for a heart evaluation before we could do surgery. Once she was cleared for surgery, it was done in April of 2019. The tumor came back malignant and had long tentacles the vet could not find the source of origin. Things didn’t seem very hopeful.
My Research Led Me to Dr. Harvey’s
There was not going to be any chemotherapy due to her being perhaps 11 years old and having an enlarged heart.
I was told she could take Previcox a high dosage anti-inflammatory and that she probably had about six months or so to live. I started researching a new diet for her and came across Dr. Harvey’s Paradigm . I called to ask about it and Dr. Harvey not only called me back but discussed the results from the vet of Sophie’s blood and urine lab results. When he called me and we discussed the regimen of Paradigm, Solaris Supplement, Sunrise, Sunset and the Health and Shine oils or a high-quality salmon oil and CoQ10.
He explained to me about carbs and how dangerous they are for cancer patients. I took his opinions to my vet and the nutritional info from the product line and received my vet’s okay to feed her that regimen. She began eating the food and the supplements in April of 2019. I avoid giving her anything for treats other than a little piece of cooked chicken every now and then.
She is Doing So Well
When tested in August her lymph nodes were not swollen and there were no cancer cells in the fluid drawn from them. An X-ray of her did not show any tumors anywhere. She will go back next month for another fluid test and X-ray.
She has more energy than she did before. She skips to go outside and although she’s always been a very quiet dog due to her forced caged lifestyle until she was rescued, she is very excited to eat, and she loves Paradigm. I do the protein rotation as suggested. Salmon, Chicken, Beef and Turkey are the proteins I use.
Thank You So Much Dr. Harvey
I don’t know how long she will be able to fight off the cancer, but I do know this… she has had an excellent quality of life on this regimen and she is a very happy little dog. I feel I have done the best by her to make her days worthwhile and I attribute a large part of it to the fact that she is eating a high-quality food that is helping her immune system. I am grateful that Dr. Harvey cared.
Sincerely and gratefully yours,
Update! Extra good news!
Sophie was tested again today 7 months post op
No tumors on the full body x-ray!
And her lymph nodes are tiny, not swollen and they don’t believe there will be any
cancer cells in the fluid taken.
I believe Dr Harvey’s Paradigm and Solaris are to be highly recommended for cancer dogs.
I am going to give Solaris to my dog who is suspected for Cushing’s now.
Homemade Is More Important Than You Think
At Dr. Harvey’s, we can’t think of anything more important for your dog’s health than giving them a daily diet of fresh homemade food made from real human grade ingredients.
Understanding the Myth of Kibble
We know that most people have come to believe that dogs should only eat dog food and that feeding kibbled dog food is complete and balanced and healthy.
Actually nothing could be further from the truth. Dog food, in particular kibble is made of ingredients that have very little nutritional value and actually kibble is largely responsible for most of the degenerative diseases seen in dogs today.
This is true of all brands, even the so-called natural brands high end expensive brands and even foods that are sold as prescription diets.
FACT-No kibble provides a healthy diet for your dog.
Not only is kibble lacking in the real foods that your pets need, additives are then mixed to the food to allow it to sit at room temperature in stores for long periods of time. Other artificial additives alter the taste of the food so dogs will eat it.

Hard to Believe, but True!
We understand that this is hard to believe as everyone from your breeder to your trusted veterinarian will tell you that there is “good kibble” and that this type of food is healthy and contains everything that your dog needs.
It is unfortunate that so many pet parents actually believe this.
A Daily Diet of Crackers?
Just like humans, animals derive their health largely from good nutrition. How healthy would you be if you ate a diet of crackers and pretzels that had been filled with preservatives and then sprayed with vitamins, flavoring and coloring agents?
And then imagine that this was your only food source that you had day in and day out.
This is what kibble is to your dog.-A diet that is lacking in fresh natural ingredients and the essential nutrients that are necessary to keep them healthy and have a long life. We want our dogs to have a life that is free from degenerative diseases such as arthritis, cancer, kidney disease and heart disease. But this type of standard pet food diet in kibbled form can also contribute to allergies, skin conditions, ear infections, digestive problems, bad breath and body odor. Not only does dry kibble lack nutritional value it also lacks enough moisture to keep dogs properly hydrated.

Real People Tell Their Miracle Stories
It has always been Dr. Harvey’s mission to help animals find and maintain good health by using only real foods and our natural products.

It is our hope that this little book will offer helpful information to those pet parents who need it. These are only a few of the many, many stories that we have received.
