“We decided that we were going to do things differently if we ever got another dog.”
Like so many pet parents, Jim and Nancy Martino fed their beloved Vizsla a diet of kibble. But at age 11, their companion developed canine cancer and passed away. It was a rough time for the Martino’s; one that they determined never to repeat.
That’s when the Martino’s discovered Dr. Harvey’s Canine Health — and even spoke directly with Dr. Harvey, who gladly shared his wealth of knowledge and experience. That settled it. It was time for the Martino’s to bring home a new best friend. His name is Augie, he’s an award-winning champion, and as you might have imagined: he’s a beautiful, energetic Vizsla!
Reflects Nancy: “Before we even brought Augie home as an 8-week old puppy, we decided that this was the food we wanted to feed him.”
We were lucky to meet Augie’s parents ,Nancy and Jim. They came to purchase food and told us their story. They told us about why they chose to feed Augie Dr. Harvey’s Canine Health and what a difference it has made in his health.
It was wonderful to hear how healthy Augie is on Dr. Harvey’s Canine Health and to see the proof in this beautiful dog. Nancy and Jim wanted to share their story with other pet parents. They wanted others to know that feeding fresh food has made a difference in Augie’s life and how feeding Canine Health could make a difference in the lives of other dogs. They wanted to share their story with you.
You will see how strongly Nancy and Jim feel about feeding Augie this way and how clear they are in their feeling that the reason Augie is so happy and healthy is directly related to the food they have chosen to feed him. As Dr. Harvey has always said, “Health Begins in the Kitchen!”
We hope that you enjoy watching this short video and that you experience some of the joy that we had while making it.
Augie is a wonderful, happy and loving dog who was pleased to let us play with him on several shoot days and let us record his daily routine.
The results are here for you to see. Enjoy!
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.
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.
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.
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.
Once pet parents understand the importance of a truly healthy freshly made meals, it’s a simple decision to switch to a healthy homemade diet.
