This Veterinarian Thought She was Feeding A High Quality Diet and then...

Posted By Guest Post Contributor, Julia Roach DVM

Common Sense Feeding

Feed your dog a fresh high-quality diet!
Seems too simple, right?
Makes sense, maybe?
It wasn’t until my discovery of Dr. Harvey’s Paradigm did I have an “aha moment.” And only after finding Dr. Harvey’s Paradigm did I realize that it is simple and that it is common sense to feed my dogs a fresh high-quality diet.

I thought I was Feeding a High Quality Diet!

Prior to Paradigm, I thought I already was feeding my dogs a high-quality diet (a prescription dry food labeled for arthritis). I thought I was providing my elderly dogs with the best that was available. I had fed this prescription diet continuously for 10 years! However, even with the prescription diet and vet recommended supplements for joint problems, their arthritis continued to get worse.

So Many Health Benefits!

I originally switched to Paradigm for my dogs’ Mental Health. I then realized all of the other health benefits it provided.

Since switching to Paradigm, these are the changes I saw and continue to see:

  • They LOVE dinner time; it’s a major event that my dogs look forward to! Looking back, I feel that they ate their dry food out of hunger and nothing more. My dogs truly enjoy their meals; there’s no turning back now!

  • Weight-loss. I realize now that my dogs were in a never ending cycle of weight-gain and pain when they were fed their “high-quality” dry food. The pain from their arthritis kept my dogs inactive, hence the weight gain. And then the weight gain caused their arthritis to increase, hence the inactivity.

How did Paradigm help? Paradigm doesn’t contain refined carbohydrates. The carbohydrates that are used are low-glycemic carbohydrates in the form of dehydrated herbs and vegetables.

  • Increased activity level. Without the excess weight, my dogs are eager to exercise. They no longer dread the nightly walk; in fact they now insist on it! The pep in their step helps me too, as I have to walk faster to keep up with the crew!
  • Decreased pain from activities. Even after their fast-paced, longer evening walks, I no longer have to reach for NSAIDS (pain pills) when we get home. Refined carbohydrates are associated with inflammation, and since Paradigm does not contain refined carbs, my dogs’ inflammation has decreased.
  • Increased muscle tone. My elderly puppies hind limbs’ muscle tone increased as their activity levels increased. They went from flabby to chic!
  • Increased overall health, mentally and physically.

What I Add to Paradigm…

One final note, I only feed grain-free, grass-fed, pastured-raised meats. Not only is it a more humane link of the food chain, but it is also more nutritious for dogs. My staples are pasture-raised chicken thighs, chicken livers and eggs.

The Proof is in the Photos!

The pictures shown here are of my dog, Roni. I included a ‘before’ picture of her on her dog bed to show you how she didn’t have any true interest in balls anymore, before Dr. Harvey’s. The jumping photo below, is obviously the “after Dr. Harvey’s shot”!
