Battling T-Cell Lymphoma with Paradigm

Posted By The Team at Dr. Harvey's

Maggie Testimonial Paradigm

Maggie Is Battling Lymphoma

First, I just wanted to tell you how much my 10-year-old Golden Retriever, Maggie, loves Paradigm! She has been battling T-Cell Lymphoma for 18 months now. She was diagnosed in June, 2016. It was found early on. After 6 months of blood monitoring her levels were creeping up so she has been on a compounded chemo drug called Chlorambucil. At that point, she was eating Fromm and had been for years. She would occasionally get bouts of unexplained diarrhea but not very often.

A Pet Parent’s Worst Nightmare

Finally, in July, 2017 after having excellent blood work, she started acting lethargic and not wanting to eat. These are a dog owner’s worst nightmare. I took her to the vet and again, all blood work was fine. She then started vomiting undigested food. I took her back and she had an ultrasound, which was inconclusive. We thought maybe there was an obstruction somewhere, so we opted for exploratory surgery. The doctor opened her up and found her colon to be in her words, “The most dilated colon she’s seen in 15 years of being a vet.” She cleaned out the colon and the intestines and found nothing remarkable. After the surgery, she recovered well, and I gave her bland home cooked food for a while.

Then We Found Paradigm

During this process I found your food at Bentley’s Pet Shop and I talked to the shop owner and researched Paradigm. She has been eating it ever since and hasn’t had a single issue whatsoever. She is even at a healthy weight and her coat is shiny again. For 9 years she was always wishy washy about eating and now she can’t wait to eat! Thank you for making such fine products!

Thank you!
Maggie’s Mom, Karen Claus

His Glucose Levels Are Now Normal!

Posted By The Team at Dr. Harvey's

What To Do When Your Dog Has Diabetes

When you receive the diagnosis that your dog has diabetes ,it is difficult and frustrating. When Phyllis wrote to us to tell us about how changing her beloved Sucre’s diet helped him so dramatically with his diabetes, we knew we had to share her experience. While so many dogs suffer from diabetes, we want pet parents to know that proper nutrition can make all the difference in the longterm management of this serious disease. Paradigm, offers pet parents a very low-carb, super nutrition option when they are looking for a supportive nutritional plan for their companions.

I Was Not Going with The Prescription Diet

Sucre, my beautiful Labradoodle, was recently diagnosed with diabetes and put on a prescription diet that lists its first ingredient as whole wheat with broths vitamins and a little chicken meal. I couldn’t get his blood glucose below 600 for 3 weeks. NOT GOOD.

He Was Getting Worse

He had lost 20 pounds and was boney and getting worse. I transitioned him over to veggies & protein & coconut oil over a weeks period cutting out the prescription kibbles. I now have him on a mixture of Harvey’s Veg-to-Bowl and Paradigm with fresh protein and oil. He is acting like his puppy self again even though he is 9 1/2 years old.

Switching to Dr. Harvey’s

He has regained his muscle back and his glucose levels are now normal and steady. He is taking less insulin and I couldn’t be happier.

Glucose Levels Now Normal and Steady

Please share my experience! I was so frustrated. Now his food and insulin are manageable. Most of all he loves the food. Thank you for giving my dog the best nutrition possible. Sincerely, Phyllis and Sucre

Paradigm Saved My Boy!

Posted By The Team at Dr. Harvey's

Briggs Testimonial 3

We Could Not Be Happier

Briggs is a beautiful senior Golden Retriever who is suffering from a very serious auto-immune disease. We received this wonderful note from Briggs’s mom.This story is nothing short of amazing. We wanted to share it with you. It is our sincere hope that it will help other pet parents who are searching for answers.

A Very Thankful Dog Mom

Dear Dr. Harvey’s,

I wanted to thank you for your food, Paradigm. My 14 year-old Golden Retriever has IMT or Immune-mediated thrombocytopenia. It is a very serious autoimmune disease in which a dog’s body attacks its own blood platelets as though they are a pathogenic bacteria or virus. Thrombocytopenia is the technical word for low platelet count. Platelets are components of blood produced in bone marrow.
Briggs Testimonial

A Very Dangerous Auto-Immune Disease

His body is destroying his platelets.
For 2 years we have been fighting this disease with steroids etc.
A normal platelet count is 145,000-500,000
My dog has NEVER gotten to normal range. The highest in number he has had in 2 years has been 66,000.
Briggs Testimonial with ball

After Only 12 Days on Paradigm

One month ago, he completely crashed to 0 platelets. That’s when I ordered your Paradigm food.
And at that time, he was at 66,000 platelet count.
Yesterday, we rechecked his labs. He was 12 days on this food. His count was 197,000!!!

His numbers have NEVER been this high. I posted your food on my Golden Retriever site as well as the IMT site. Lots of people are ordering this.

Thank You for Saving My Boy!

Thank you for this food! It truly has saved my boy!

Sincerely,
Kris Lathem

Why Feed Your Dog a Ketogenic Diet?

Posted By The Team at Dr. Harvey's

Paradigm Blog

What is a Ketogenic Diet?

This diet is high in fat, supplies adequate protein and is low in carbohydrates. This combination changes the way energy is used in the body. Fat is converted in the liver into fatty acids and ketone bodies. Another effect of the diet is that it lowers glucose levels and improves insulin resistance. An elevated level of ketone bodies in the blood, a state known as ketosis, leads to a reduction in the occurrence of epileptic seizures, may inhibit the growth of cancer cells and helps regulate diabetes and obesity.

There is a great deal of scientific evidence that this diet may help certain conditions such as seizures, and other neurological conditions, cancer, obesity and diabetes in both humans and animals.

Paradigm is the perfect base food and makes feeding a ketogenic diet so easy to do.

This Diet Can Change Your Dog’s Life

Our mission has always been to provide information that will help pet parents to make the best choices when deciding on how to feed their companion animals and achieve optimal wellness. Paradigm is our newest base food for making a home made, fresh food diet that is easy to make, contains very low carbohydrate ingredients and can be prepared to make healthy ketogenic meals for dogs.

We provide foods that are often the solution to a guardian’s quest to find nutritional answers to chronic or recurring health problem. To that end, we have, for over 30 years, provided foods that help pet parents feed their companions a daily diet that is made from fresh, safe and healthy ingredients. We have seen miraculous improvements in so many dogs, cats and birds and we have helped healthy animals to remain healthy.

In our quest to provide continuing education and cutting edge information on animal nutrition we continue to search for the newest research available.

Help with Cancer

The Keto Pet Sanctuary is a state of the art facility that provides a variety of alternative therapies for dogs with cancer. Dogs at the sanctuary are fed a diet that is high in fat, uses moderate amounts of protein and is very low in carbs. The diet is meant to slow or halt the growth of cancer, based on the theory that cancer cells feed on sugar (including carbohydrates that break down to sugar) and will not survive on fat.

The results are promising and sometimes miraculous.

For more information on the Keto Pet Sanctuary

Carbs and Cancer-the Connection

Rodney Habib, pet nutrition expert and researcher, recently spoke about findings from Veterinary Oncologists showing that there is a strong correlation between too much sugar, high carbohydrate and high starch diets and cancer. He recently completed a documentary called, “The Dog Cancer Survival Series.” He has traveled the world looking for nutritional studies that provide alternative nutritional diets for dogs with cancer. These nutritional modalities include raw food and fresh food, caloric restriction, metabolic therapies and ketogenic diets.

In a recent video, renown holistic veterinarian, Dr. Karen Becker, explained, “Everyone is talking about the damaging effects of high starch, high carb diets, pro-inflammatory diets. We know that these diets can contribute to diabetes, obesity, and arthritis. We know that there is an absolute correlation to the amount of sugar that a mammal eats and their predisposition to cancer.
We know that’s true.” Food matters… According to some experts, there is no question about the correlation between carbs and sugar that could be a cause and exacerbating cancers.

Help with Diabetes

While diabetes in dogs is a serious and complex condition, there is evidence to show that a diet that is low in carbohydrates can help to normalize blood sugar levels and encourage weight loss. We encourage pet parents who have a dog that has been diagnosed with diabetes to consider a nutritional intervention using a diet that is low in carbohydrates.

Dr. Karen Becker explains:
" … 90 percent of pet foods out there contain totally inappropriate ingredients that are not nourishing and actually create low-grade inflammatory processes, diabetes, and obesity. All the same health issues occurring in the pet world are occurring in the human realm in terms of overall health.

Sugar, of course, causes an insulin release. Insulin then causes blood sugar to drop. Cortisol is then released to rebalance blood sugar. So dogs and cats are dealing with this whole cycle of carbohydrate ingestion, insulin release, and cortisol release.”
Dr. Becker concludes that animals were not meant to eat the high carb diets that most commercial pet foods offer.

Help with Weight Loss

Obesity in dogs is at near epidemic levels in the US. If you have ever had a dog that is overweight, you know how difficult it can be to reverse the condition. Obesity in dogs can lead to the development of a host of health problems including, diabetes, joint problems, and cardiovascular disease. Obesity is not just a vanity problem; it is in fact, a serious condition in dogs that adversely effect your dog’s health and longevity. Lower carbs and feeding fresh food will help to normalize your dog’s weight. Paradigm is perfect for this.

Ingredients that Sustain Health

In addition to considering a low carbohydrate diet for your dog there are herbs that Dr. Harvey includes to boost the immune system, encourage healing and help to increase overall good health.

These ingredients include:
• Turmeric
• Ginger
• Red Clover
• Milk Thistle
• Dandelion
• Slippery Elm
• Cinnamon
• Medicinal Mushrooms, including chaga, turkey tail, shitaki, and reishi

Giving Your Dog the Best Chance

There is no question that what you feed your dog can change their well-being and their outlook for a long and healthy life. When confronted with health challenges, using nutritional tools can help your dog to heal sometimes from even the most difficult of diagnosis.

How we think about feeding our companion animals needs a new paradigm and there is now a body of research that concludes that feeding your dog fresh meals that consist of high-quality proteins, healthy fats and low amounts of carbohydrates can encourage healing and promote wellness.

Dr. Harvey’s Takes a Closer Look

Based on the findings of distinguished researchers now published in the research literature on the benefits of a low carb diet for the care of dogs and cats with cancer, diabetes, and obesity, we are working to educate pet parents worldwide.

Paradigm can be used for dogs who have health challenges that would benefit from a ketogenic diet, as well as for healthy dogs looking to maintain optimal wellness.

Don’t Wait Another Day!

The sooner you start your pup on a diet of fresh foods and low carbs the sooner you will have your best friend on road to good health. Paradigm is easy to prepare and it’s the very best food you can give to your dog.

Paradigm is Helping Beazer's Diabetes

Posted By The Team at Dr. Harvey's

Beazer Testimonial 2

Beazer LOVES His New Food

Dear Dr. Harvey’s Team, Thanks for asking how Beazer liked the food! He LOVES it! I am so happy… as feeding him since his diagnosis of diabetes 2 years ago had been a struggle.
I had allergy testing done a couple years ago, as he was always itchy (Westie). After many years of steroid use to treat itchy skin, ….I feel certain that’s why Beaz developed diabetes.

Exasperation! His Blood Sugars Were Never Controlled

I had allergy tests done, and …. its THREE pages long. In short he’s allergic to almost all outside grasses, trees and such.. and almost all meats! Historically, I would find a food that might work, they would include some
potato, corn, or filler, that he is allergic to. I was getting more and more exasperated… as his sugars were never really controlled… a “good” read for him was in the 200s.. not optimal!

Amazing Results After Feeding Paradigm

After only 5 days on the Paradigm, his glucose was at 170 when he was 7 hour post insulin!!! Never happens!! I was elated.
I am planning to do a glucose curve then the new bag arrives. I am so hopeful!

Thanks so much… as Beazer is a true “case"! I’m including a recent picture of Beazer, who will be 14 years on February 5th!

My Very Best,

Lisa

Karma Loves Paradigm

Posted By The Team at Dr. Harvey's

Karma Testimonial 1

Meet Karma

Meet Karma, our 4-year-old rescue beagle.  We rescued Karma 2 years ago after someone hit her & left her to die on the side of the road.  By the time someone found her, her broken hip had already started to heal.  Once we rescued her, we found out she had heart worms.  It was heart breaking to watch her go through treatments.
It took her a very long-time stop being afraid of shadows from lamps.  She’s come so far over the last 2 years & she’s grown into the sweetest dog.  

And Then…Aggressive Breast Cancer

My husband & I moved to Charleston, SC from Wilmington, NC four months ago. Two weeks after we moved, Karma got a very aggressive form of breast cancer.  We gave her a bath one night & felt no abnormalities.  The next day she had a 3″ × 1″ area on her belly that had numerous malignant tumors.  We were devastated.  It literally happened over night.  She had absolutely no symptoms & if anything, she was the happiest she’s ever been.   Given her young age & lack of symptoms, we agreed to pursue treatment which we knew would most likely be surgery.
We took her to a walk-in clinic & the second the vet saw the tumors she said we needed to operate ASAP.  She recommended a local vet that she knew personally that had more affordable prices.  
Karma Testimonial 2

We Were Devastated

We got Karma an appointment 2 days later and the vet said that we literally caught it as fast as we could & she was able to perform surgery on Karma the following day. 
During this time, I researched what causes cancer & how cancer cells grow.  We were feeding her Blue Buffalo because we thought it was a good brand.  But then I learned more than I cared to about processed food & realized that if there’s anything I can do to help her get better it is to change what she eats & get her exercising.

We Did Our Research

I started researching recipes & came across Dr. Harvey’s new Paradigm food.  I was so happy to find a product with actual healthy food & no preservatives.  I love everything about this product.
Karma’s been on her new healthy living & diet with Paradigm for almost 2 months now. *She absolutely loves this food & I love cooking it for her.* 

Karma Testimonial 3

She Is Doing So Well Now

She went to the vet a couple weeks ago & she even lost 2 pounds!  The vet was very impressed with how well Karma is doing. :)

We love Dr. Harvey’s & Paradigm food!

Thank you so much,
Tavia Pyatt  and Karma

"Whatever it takes for Captain-Our Diabetic Dog"

Posted By The Team at Dr. Harvey's

His Numbers Were Not Getting Better

Hi Dr. Harvey’s, We wanted to reach out to you to let you know our story and our journey with Captain and his diabetes.

Captain Testimonial 1
Our dog Captain is a 10 year old Miniature Schnauzer who become diabetic just over a year ago. Our early start was with the prescription dog food our Vet recommended for Diabetic Canines. It did not take long to realize his glucose numbers were not stabilizing, in fact they got worse.

The Food Was Converting to Sugar!

We realized they got worse because the ingredients for this food contain foods that convert to sugar. Shame on the food company. We went to a animal nutritionist in New Jersey and she started us on the path of a custom home made meal plan for Captain. His number improved but we weren’t satisfied. My wife is extremely smart and, in my opinion truly understands more that even I give her credit for sometimes. Pam started tinkering with the meal plan and soon his numbers greatly improved. She so smart.

Then We Found Dr. Harvey’s

However, we were pointed in the direction of Dr. Harvey for his solution by our groomer, Chris, from The Good Life Mobile Dog Grooming in Nanuet, New York. She was the one who introduced us to your products. We are very grateful to her for this recommendation! She is the best and most knowledgeable groomer ever! Keeping up with home based created food and securing fresh ingredients all the time is a bit trying for our family. However, we won’t compromise on what Captain needs. People that know us will tell you when it comes to Captain we say “Whatever it takes”. We long ago always knew that a dog should be eating what a dog should be eating and the commercial dog foods are garbage.

We Ordered Paradigm

When we ordered our first order of Paradigm we couldn’t wait until we got it. It helped us be able to feed Captain a bit easier with the very ingredients we were feeding him ourselves. (Somewhat). In addition, it has come to light that we may be over do it with protein. As I understand it can lead to a whole new set of issues. It is our hope that Paradigm will be our Miracle…because we deserve one.

This Has Helped to Stabilize His Numbers!

Captain is now on the Paradigm food and he adjusted his intake and this was able to stabilize his glucose numbers.

He is doing just fine!

OK I will get off my soapbox,

Pam & Fred Ostrofsky

We are Part of The Revolution!

PS sorry for the long winded email. So many pet parents don’t understand the feeding revolution.

Low-Carb and Ketogenic Diets for Dogs with Diabetes

Posted By The Team at Dr. Harvey's

sad dog with people

Finding the Best Diet for Your Dog with Diabetes

Deciding what kind of food to feed a healthy dog is difficult enough, but when your dog is diagnosed with a life-threatening disease like diabetes, it becomes even more important to pick the right diet plan.
Unfortunately, most pet parents are still feeding their dogs commercially canned and kibble food. While these types of food are extremely popular and can be found in many stores, the truth is commercial pet food is not good for pets and is at the root of the crisis in our pets’ health. According to Dogs Naturally Magazine, feeding your pet commercial dog food is essentially like giving your pet fast food every day. And, as we all know, a constant diet of fast food leads to many health problems down the line.
Kibble dog food

Why You Need to Avoid Commercial Pet Food

But what exactly is in commercial dog food that makes it so bad for our pets? Starches, for one thing. Not-so-fun fact: did you know that it takes a minimum of 40 percent starches to get kibble to stick together? Almost all commercial dog foods are loaded with high sugar and high glycemic index ingredients like corn, rice, peas, potatoes, and other low-grade non-meat fillers. Sadly, these fillers cause rapid glucose spikes that can contribute to or worsen your pet’s diabetes.

A Diet Low in Carbohydrates

According to Dr. Karen Becker, “… 90 percent of pet foods out there contain totally inappropriate ingredients that are not nourishing and actually create low-grade inflammatory processes, diabetes, and obesity. All the same health issues occurring in the pet world are occurring in the human realm in terms of overall health.
Sugar, of course, causes an insulin release. Insulin then causes blood sugar to drop. Cortisol is then released to rebalance blood sugar. So dogs and cats are dealing with this whole cycle of carbohydrate ingestion, insulin release, and cortisol release.”

Dr. Becker concludes that animals were not meant to eat the high carb diets that most commercial pet foods offer.
Diabetes in dogs is a serious and complex condition, but research has shown that a diet low in carbohydrates can help to normalize your dog’s blood sugar levels and encourage weight loss. This is why it’s so important for pet parents who have a dog that has been diagnosed with diabetes to consider a nutritional intervention using a diet that is low in carbohydrates.

Slowing Diabetes with a Ketogenic Diet

By changing your sick pet’s daily regimen to a diet rich in fats, low glycemic vegetables and medium amounts of high-quality proteins, you will be giving your beloved companion the very best chance to heal and thrive. Many pet parents have seen that disease progression can be slowed and even halted and reversed by feeding their dog fresh and healthy food. This type of diet is referred to as a ketogenic diet, meaning that the body is burning ketones as its primary fuel and not glucose.

sad dog

Regulating Blood Sugar with Diet

This state of ketosis regulates blood sugar and allows the cells to heal. Glucose is a “dirty” fuel, while fat burns much cleaner in the body. So by replacing carbs with healthy fats, your dog’s cells’ mitochondria, the insides of each cell, are less likely to suffer damage from free radicals and can heal. Carbs, grains, certain high sugar content fruits, starches and starchy vegetables all turn to glucose in the body, which is why these ingredients must be avoided in order to help your dog heal.

The Paradigm Shift

Dr. Harvey’s Paradigm is a specially-blended “green food” pre-mix which makes an ideal base for a nutritionally complete low-carb diet. In addition to considering a low carbohydrate diet for your dog, Dr. Harvey’s Paradigm also includes different herbs to boost the immune system, encourage healing, and help to increase overall good health. These ingredients include turmeric, ginger, red clover, milk thistle, dandelion, slippery elm, and cinnamon.
There is no question that what you feed your dog can change their well-being and their outlook for a long and healthy life. When confronted with health challenges, like diabetes, using nutritional tools can help your dog to heal sometimes from even the most difficult of diagnosis.

Herbs and ingredients in Paradigm 2

Managing Your Dog’s Diabetes

How we look at feeding our companion animals needs a new paradigm and there is now a body of research that concludes that feeding your dog fresh meals that consist of high-quality proteins, healthy fats, and low amounts of carbohydrates can encourage healing and promote wellness.
Transitioning a dog with diabetes to a low-carb diet should be done slowly. Pet parents should always consult with their veterinarian and let them know that they are changing their dog to a low-carb diet.

Paradigm’s unique formulation contains only low glycemic vegetables, and absolutely no starch or grain. As a result, complex carbs are digested more slowly, and glucose level increases are safely spread out over time vs. delivered all at once in an unhealthy and dangerous surge.
Managing your dog’s diabetes means constant care, but there is growing evidence that diabetes can be managed and your pet can live a happy life if dietary changes are made.

Paradigm is Perfect!

Posted By The Team at Dr. Harvey's

Paradigm has become a great solution for many pet parents who need a low-glycemic homemade diet for their dog. We received an email from Remington’s mom, Lisé, who reached out to tell us about feeding him this extraordinary diet. We are sharing this so that other pet parents who may be looking for answers, can see how well it is working for this beautiful dog.

Remington GSD Paradigm

He LOVES the Food!

Dear Dr. Harvey’s,
How nice of you to follow up! So far, so good with the Paradigm food. Remington LOVES the food with pork or beef, but I’ve discovered he’s not a fan of eggs. We’ll be trying a few other proteins soon. I’ve been feeding him a commercial raw diet for years, but he’s very ill with an autoimmune disease and I’ve exhausted all other options, so I have to put him on Atopica (an immune suppressant). I needed to switch Remington to a cooked diet because of this medication.

I Am So Happy We Found Paradigm!

I am so happy I found Paradigm! I’m a big believer in a low glycemic diet for dogs, especially dogs with inflammatory issues, and I was a bit overwhelmed thinking about how I was going to create a balanced cooked diet, since I certainly wasn’t going to feed Remington kibble. Paradigm is perfect!

Caring for a Sick Dog

I am so pleased all I have to worry about is the protein. Remington’s health issues require me to spend a lot of time each day on various soaks, antiseptic cleansing, applying ointments, etc. It’s such a relief to have a healthy, ready-made pre-mix food base from a trustworthy company. It’s one less thing for me to do and worry about, which is really a blessing when caring for a sick dog.

Thank you,

Lisé J. Polard, ABCDT, CPDT-KA
