Canine Health Has Been a Godsend for My Senior
Good morning Dr. Harvey’s
I’m writing this review of your Canine Health dog food because it has been a Godsend for my 15-year-old toy poodle Georgia.
She was in renal failure in August and I was researching how to help her when I stumbled across your website. I bought a trial size of your Canine Health dog food because of how picky my Georgia girl is most days. When it arrived, I made her a meal and she wouldn’t eat it. I was giving her lots of treats because she wasn’t eating her dog food and didn’t realize the mistake, I was making with the high protein in her treats and dog food. I struggled for the next 2 months trying to get her to eat something. Her incontinence continued and she drank lots of water and didn’t feel good.
She Was Given 6 months to Live
I took her back to the Vet in October and there wasn’t much change in her renal function. I was desperate at this point and the Vet said little to no protein at this point. He said there’s not much else to be done she has 6 months or less to live.
I was so broken-hearted thinking I would lose my sweet Georgia girl soon.
I Fed Canine Health and Was Amazed at the Difference
I took her off all treats and made her another meal with your dog food, Canine Health, and Behold! She ate it!! I was so excited. And within a few days of eating your dog food her incontinence stopped and she began to perk up with energy! I couldn’t believe it! She stopped gulping water and began to enjoy our walks again. I’ve been amazed at the difference in her. I bought a bag of the Canine Health at that point.
I Went Back to the Vet-Praying for a Miracle!
I took her back to the Vet on December 4th and was praying hard for a miracle. Then the Vet came back in the room and showed me her lab results ALL within normal range. Her kidneys were working! I was so excited; I hugged the Vet and began crying tears of joy. I was overwhelmed with emotion. I hugged my baby and said a thank you prayer to God and walked out into the hallway. I stood there crying and noticed an older couple standing nearby crying with fur all over them. It broke my heart because I knew they had just said goodbye to their furbaby. I cried sad tears at this point for their loss. I was an emotional mess but so very thankful to still have my Georgia girl.
Thank you Dr. Harvey’s!
Words cannot adequately express the gratitude I have for your company and your products. Even though I was a little skeptical when I bought the trial size I’m sold now!
Thanks so very much to your staff and Dr Harvey!
A True Miracle!
Canine Health is what I’ve tried so far and it has truly been a miracle. I’ll be honest I wasn’t expecting significant results because I had already had my dog on a homemade diet with a vitamin mix.
Better in Just One Day
However, she was struggling with chronic diarrhea for over 6 weeks and nothing I tried was helping, except antibiotics. Within one day on Canine Health she was back to normal! She has kidney so I’m going to stick with Canine Health or Veg-to-Bowl.
We Could Not Be Happier!
Please share our experience with other pet parents. We want everyone to know about Dr. Harvey’s!
I only wish I had known about Dr. Harvey’s sooner!
Thanks so much!

High Kidney Levels
I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your food! My husband and I have a 10 or 11 year old terrier mix named Juno who went in for blood work to make sure we could put her under for teeth cleaning. The results revealed her kidney levels were high.
No Prescription Food for Juno!
The vet suggested putting her on a prescription diet i.e. Science Diet. Well, I did not want that, I have heard many horror stories about that! My fur baby’s health means a lot to me. So, at the beginning we were feeding her homemade food such as turkey, broccoli and rice, but then her teeth were getting worse. We needed to feed her dry food to help remove tartar etc. So, we researched high and low for a good high quality dry food that was made in the US.
Her Levels Improved Drastically
Well, I guess that wasn’t good either, because after feeding her Canine Health, her kidney levels drastically improved. She also had energy like she had when she was younger. We could tell she was feeling better! I was baffled that even with the expensive “high quality” dry food her health was declining. Not sure what it is, but Dr. Harvey thank you so much!!! Not sure what we would do without you!

He Was Diagnosed with Kidney Disease
My fifteen year old dog, Otto, was diagnosed with kidney disease almost two years ago, My vet insisted that he needed to be on a prescription diet even though I do not like the ingredients in these diets. This diet was high in fat and he developed pancreatitis. She then put him on another prescription diet; which caused stomach upset.
So Happy I Found Dr. Harvey’s
I am glad that I found Dr. Harvey’s Canine Health. My dog has been on this since about August, 2016. His kidney blood test indicators stabilized while they were actually increasing on the prescription diet. His creatinine values have been steadily decreasing since he started Canine Health. Dr. Harvey remains in contact with me and has recommended his new Kidney Health supplement which I use also.
My Vet Could Not Believe His Age!
My dog loves Canine Health. He is energetic, and his coat looks great. After using this food for while I brought him to a new vet and she was really surprised that he was as old as he is!
We Were Told To Prepare for the Worst
About a month ago my little girl became extremely sick with no warning signs, after visiting our local vet we discovered she was suffering from an inflamed liver, her kidney levels were extremely high, and she was suffering from pancreatitis. We were told to prepare for the worst being that she is 10 years old and most likely would not recover.
She Refused to Eat
After spending three days at the vets on IV fluid and medications we were allowed to bring her home but on a NF kibble diet and a ton of supplements and antibiotics. Things seemed better for a few days, but she refused to eat the hard-dry RX formula of food. For years we have fed her nothing but Blue Buffalo as I always had the perception that they were a quality food.
She Started to Relapse
After a few days of being home she started to relapse and started vomiting every time she ate and again we were told to keep feeding her the Rx diet and to prepare for the worst. I did not want to give up on my little girl, but I did not want to see her in pain either, after days of research I happened to come upon Dr. Harvey’s website.
Then I Found Dr. Harvey’s
I spent hours going over reviews on Amazon and Facebook and in a leap of faith I placed an order for Dr. Harvey’s Canine Health Miracle Dog Food. It has been three weeks and I am happy to say that I have my little girl back, better than ever. She is her normal spunky self again thanks to Dr. Harvey’s. I cannot begin to thank you for saving my Baby Girl. I truly believe if it was not for this amazing food she would not be with us today. We will continue on this diet and at this point we have stopped all the supplements the vet recommended and switched to Dr. Harvey’s Kidney Health Supplement along with the Canine Health Miracle Dog Food.
Thank you for Saving My Baby Girl
I am happy to report that she is back to her old self with even more spunk then before. We have even stopped all the kidney treatments that the vet had her on and switched her to Dr. Harvey’s Kidney Supplement and she has done extremely well. Thank You again for helping my little girl. Attached are a few pictures of my Baby Girl.
Baby Girl is a 10-year-old Doxin-West Highland mix, and we look forward to many happy years to come.
Thank You Dr. Harvey,
Timothy W. Gutliph
UPDATE We have had great success when the Kidney Health Supplement is added to this fresh diet.
Early Renal Failure at 18 Months
I wanted you to know about the journey of my silly St. Bernard, Dora the Explorer, who has a funny smaller nostril on one side. At only 18 months old, I thought the elective surgery to open it up so she could breathe better (and so I would not have to pick so many boogers!) would be a great idea. I asked the Vet to do the pre-surgery blood work so I would “have a base line.” Before I even got home, I received a call stating that she has “early renal failure.” To say I was shocked is an understatement. Of course, she still has her tiny nostril, as a side note!
All Roads Led Me to Dr. Harvey’s
The Vet immediately put her on fluids to cleanse her kidneys and recommended I put her on the Hills Prescription Diet immediately to help her kidneys. I did that and in the meantime, I began researching canine kidney disease. All roads led me to Dr. Harvey! I called him. He requested the test results so we could discuss her best nutritional options. Of course, I was impressed that he called me, he wanted to see the results (not just sell a product) and then took time more than once to fine tune her diet!
Kidney Health Supplement
He recommended that I read and learn. I did! He told me to study Rehmannia. I slowly moved Dora off the Hills and onto the Canine Health Diet with cooked protein, wild Salmon Oil, and Rehmannia capsules in the doses Dr. Harvey recommended for her weight and test results. After 30 days, all measures but her Creatinine came into the normal range. That measure went up just a little. At that point, Dr. Harvey recommended I study Raw Green Tripe and start to feed that to Dora as well. I have added that into a mostly raw diet switching here and there since it is quite expensive. A few weeks later, his Kidney Health Supplement which contains Rehmannia, was available. I switched her from the capsules to that powder.
The Vet is Amazed! Today all of her numbers are NORMAL
At our Vet appointment today, my Vet was amazed that ALL of her numbers are now in the NORMAL zone and he actually asked me what I as feeding her. Many measures were high in August. Creatinine was a little higher in October (everything else normal.) It is now November and everything is normal! I will continue to do what I am doing and praise God and Dr. Harvey for their love and concern for our pet! Dora seems happy, healthy, energetic, and more! She runs the hills on our property nearly daily and puts on way more miles on our hikes than I do! Thank you!
Sincerely, Jenny Lance and Dora
Nothing makes us happier than when a pet parent feels compelled to write to us and tell us how their precious companion’s health improved after using our food and talking to Dr. Harvey. This has to be one of our favorites. Banjo’s mom, Terri, wrote to tell us about this adorable 12-year-old Shih Tzu and how he improved so dramatically after changing Banjo’s diet!
I Had to Write to You
Dear Dr. Harvey,
I have been trying to find where I can leave you reviews and I can’t seem to find anywhere so I am emailing you and you can feel free to post it wherever you would like to. You have been such a help to us and we are so thankful!
Banjo’s Diagnosis-Our Hearts Were Broken
Our little 12-year-old Shih Tzu, Banjo, was diagnosed with renal failure as well as anemia. Our hearts were broken and we were, of course, doing everything the vet advised us to do. He was getting worse and worse and we really felt we were a few days away from losing him. Dr. Harvey’s food ad popped up after doing some research and we decided to purchase his Canine Health-The Miracle Dog Food. Our little guy loved it.
We Changed His Food and Then We Called Dr. Harvey
A few days later I decided to call and hopefully speak with Dr. Harvey himself. What a wonderful, kind man. Dr. Harvey advised us of multiple things we needed to do that our local vet had never mentioned as well as things that our vet didn’t even know anything about. We made the changes immediately and Banjo started to look brighter and more alert.
In Just 6 Days He Was Back to Himself!
Within 6 days our little guy was himself again. I cannot begin to tell you how sick he was…he could hardly stand to urinate, he wasn’t even holding his urine, his appetite was not good, he was incredibly lethargic, etc. After just 6 days of eating Dr. Harvey’s food (he advised us of exactly how much protein to add), as well as implementing the other things he told us about and he did a complete turnaround.
It Was A Miracle
It was honestly miraculous! Now we speak to Dr. Harvey about once per week and he continues to guide us. What a blessing this man is. He has restored my faith in the kindness of people, and reminded me that there is still a lot of good left in the world.
Thank You From Banjo!
Thank you, Dr. Harvey, from the very bottom of our hearts. And if Banjo could talk, I promise he would tell you that he loves you and thank you so much!
Terri McConnell, Jason McConnell and Banjo
*UPDATE ON BANJO-7/9/17
This food is simply incredible . We have a 12 yr old Shih Tzu with compromised kidneys . We started him on this food , as well as a few other things Dr Harvey recommended and the change in his health and energy has simply been miraculous. I also just have to say that he is eating more now than he did before he got sick ..Dr Harvey advised us how much of our own quality protein to add . Our Banjo LOVES this food ! I can’t say enough wonderful things about this food and about Dr Harvey as well.
I Had To Write to You
Good Morning, I wanted to write to you and tell you… Thanks for EVERYTHING!
Dr. Harvey has been helping my Chadwick and I really appreciate every moment of his time. I have never had an experience quite like it, we have been blessed with great vets, but Dr. Harvey is more than that he is a great human being who really cares. Chadwick has been eating the Fine Ground Veg-to-Bowl for about a month, to say he is picky is an understatement.
Chadwick Loves the Food!
He LOVES Dr. Harvey’s Fine Ground Veg-to-Bowl! Chadwick is 11 years old and a two-time cancer survivor and has had some kidney issues and is now battling some liver function issues. His kidney issues were quickly rectified with Dr. Harvey’s and I know we will also get to the bottom of his liver issues with Dr. Harvey’s help.
You Are Always There for Me
Dr. Harvey is always there to speak with me and calm me down and we couldn’t be more grateful for his products and his guidance. I am looking forward to trying the new Paradigm food as well :)
Thanks so very much,
Kristen H. Zachariev and Chadwick
This wonderful family wrote a heartfelt email to us asking us to share their success story. We loved hearing Henry’s story and knowing that he is doing so well! Even after 30 years of teaching pet parents to make better choices, each story of a dog getting better with our food is wonderful and feels like a victory! We thank The Maged-Rubio Family for sharing Henry’s story with us and now with you!
Henry is the Love of Our Life
Hello Dr. Harvey and Team,
I wanted to write to you to share our story, say thank you, and possibly find a way to use our story to help other loving dog guardians find their way to your products if they already haven’t…
Our dog, Henry, is our first dog. He is a four-year-old male Brittany and the love of our lives… We do everything together from going on walks, to showing him competitively and doing agility.
Devastated with a Diagnosis of Kidney Disease
We have always taken the best care of him and were shocked one year ago when he was diagnosed with early stage kidney disease. We were frantic, consulted with anyone we could, looking for answers and hope. We did not know what to expect. We met with “alternative vets” and also specialists at one of the top veterinary hospitals in the country. All left us feeling disappointed with the recommendations they offered. When the specialist’s recommendation was to put Henry on a major brand name, canned dog food, meant for late stage renal failure patients, we knew we had to do our own research.
We Searched and Searched for Answers
By scouring the internet for months, we were eventually led to Dr. Harvey. We were skeptical since Henry had always been a finicky eater… We called the company to ask some questions and were surprised when Dr. Harvey, himself, got on the phone! His unique brand of rationale and engagement persuaded us.
Picky Henry Loved the Food
The first feeding said everything, as Henry lapped his food up and probably would have eaten even more! We like that we control the protein that goes into his base mix and get it fresh weekly from the farm near our house. He eats like a king!
And Here’s the Good News!
The best news yet is that, after 2 months eating only your food and the protein and oil we supply, Henry had his first set of completely normal labs! On paper, he does not have renal disease. We tell everyone we can about your brand.
We Want to Tell Everyone about Dr. Harvey’s
Henry wants to be your “spokesdog”. Thank you with all of our hearts.
With the most sincere of thanks,
The Maged-Rubio Family
PS. We have attached some pictures of Henry.
Thank you for your note!
First, I wanted to thank you for the note enclosed with the sample of Dr. Harvey’s Canine Health. I was at my wit’s end with Mac at that point and I appreciated the sentiment so before I even tried the sample, I went and purchased a 10-pound bag of Canine Health in the hopes that it would work!
Kidney Diagnosis-Loose Stools
Since the diagnosis of Renal Disease, we’ve had our ups and downs. He’s lost weight and he was only a 19-pound dog to start with. We give him fluids subcutaneously every other day and I had tried a homemade low phosphorus diet mixed with the Prescription Low Residue, which worked for a little bit, but he was still having problems with a loose stool and pooping in the house. On the good news side, with the fluids and the diet his kidney numbers came down. They were still not within normal range but they were better.
My goals are to first get a solid stool and then try to get more weight on him without impacting the kidney numbers.
I switched him to Canine Health (without the protein or oil) last Thursday and I’m very happy to say that since Sunday, he’s had a solid stool.
(My husband and I only seem to talk about the dog’s poop anymore! ☺) He loves the food and can’t wait for me to put it down, so we have no problem with him eating. He actually barks at me to hurry up and get his food!
Now that I have that solid stool I’m going to see about introducing the oil and protein to the Canine Health and then try to get him off the low residue entirely.
Thank you so much for your interest. And again, thank you for your initial note with the sample of Canine Health, it really meant a lot to me.
Sincerely, Joanne Powers
I also wanted to mention that MacTavish seems to have more energy this past week, and I’m chalking it up to Dr. Harvey’s!
