When your dog has diabetes the challenge to keep your dog balanced and healthy is a daily struggle. It is a difficult disease to manage and often causes additional problems such as blindness, pancreatitis and as with Paris, stroke. When we received this amazing email from Lori, Paris’s mom. We thought other pet parents who may also be struggling should know about her experience. She sent us BEFORE and AFTER PHOTOS.
I wish you knew the 10-year struggle I’ve went through to feed this Chihuahua. Recently, my diabetic dog suffered a stroke and could not recover properly.
Her veterinarian said her food would play a huge role in her recovery, but I literally almost cried trying to find something she would eat which also met her dietary needs (which is a very small selection of prepared products).
It got to where she was becoming malnourished so for a while it was scary! Finding a food that she will eat or CAN eat has been difficult, to say the least. So needless to say, it makes me deliriously happy to tell you she BEGS for this. Just knowing that it’s obviously healthier for her makes me very glad to have found this product, Paradigm.
I also bought some Veg-to-Bowl for my two other Chihuahuas and they love it too. So, I cannot say enough great things. Thank you so much for the initial sample and for probably saving my dog’s life. Take a look at the difference in her before and after photos! Love Lori and Paris
Hello Dr. Harvey and Staff,
I wanted to take the time to give you an update on our now 9-year-old Boston Terrier, Logan. He has been on your Canine Health Mix since he was 8 months old. Logan was a picky eater due to his problem with chewing food and having brachycephalic reconstructive surgery.
Over the course of his wonderful years and numerous compliments from vet specialists on his form, muscle build, phenomenal shiny tuxedo coat, and of course his awesome personality it has to be all thanks to you and your formula!
Being the older “American Gentleman” now, we have placed him on your Golden Years Supplement for the past year along with Coenzyme Q10 as we have been informed that he has a low-grade heart murmur and we can certainly see the difference since starting these supplements!
I only hope that others can see the wonders that your formulas can do and have done for my Logan.
He’s 9 but really has the life of a 2-year-old pup. Thank you so much for keeping up the great formulas and products, and always sharing your stories, but most of all thank you for saving our Logan and his health. Without you, Logan would be on countless medications!
We take pride in Logan’s health and finding the best alternatives
Dr. Harvey’s food and supplements gave us hope for Logan when all else failed including vet suggestions. In spite of what the vets want us to feed our fur babies, I honestly believe it is junk food. The motto for nutritionists is “if you can’t pronounce the name on the label don’t eat it!” I firmly believe in that.
I hope other pet parents can turn to your products like we have done with our fur baby.
Patricia & Scott Medeiros proud parents to Logan

The wonderful Julie Payne hopes no pet parent ever has to go through what she has with Star, her senior Chihuahua, and her love. Julie first posted this on her Instagram account and then sent us the story of her journey with Star. She found a solution to help her fur baby and wanted to share her experience with other pet parents. Here is her story in her own words.
This is the story of my journey and I am telling it for other fur parents who may be in my situation. My dog, Star, is Chihuahua and is almost 14 years old and was diagnosed with kidney disease about a month ago. She slowly stopped eating and I felt like she was quickly starting to take a turn for the worse.
Days went by with her eating close to nothing and I bought about 6 different brands of dog food trying to support her new diet plan and she wasn’t interested in anything at all, not her old food or new. I was completely devastated and desperate. I spent long periods of time in multiple pet supply stores looking for anything that could give her a balanced meal that she would eat. She turned everything down. I spent hours on the Internet looking for a solution and decided I was going to attempt to make her homemade dog food.
That’s when I found Dr. Harvey’s website and found a dog food pre-mix, Canine Health that you just add water, oil, and home-cooked protein to and your dog will have their homemade dog food. Skeptical, since Star refused to eat anything at this point, I still ordered the free trial bag of Canine Health which the website recommended for dogs battling kidney disease.
I prepared her food and put her bowl down and started to cry as I watched my dog eat from her bowl alone without me hand feeding her each piece with praise for the first time in about two weeks. I know it’s not a cure for her disease but within days her entire behavior went from weak and sad to energetic and excited about meals.
This food, Canine Health is made with fresh real ingredients like oats, carrots, and peas and gives her a well-balanced meal. It does cost more and requires more work than throwing kibble in a bowl but I’d do anything to have extra time with my best friend.
I am sending you this email to send praises about your Canine Health-Miracle Dog Food
My Maggie May started with a severe stomach upset in May of this year. I had her to the vet twice with this one incident that ended up being Colitis. It was horrible.
Two rounds of antibiotics and probiotics and it seemed like it just kept coming back. I have been a customer of Baron’s K9 Country Store here in Bel Air, Maryland for 10 years. This is my second Pomeranian in those 10 and a half years. I had noticed her breath was a little stinky, especially in the mornings and also she had really bad brownish, orange tear stains, but I thought with her being white, it just came along with the territory of owning a white dog. When the stomach issue started I thought a stomach upset is not uncommon, but then the bloody diarrhea was cause for alarm and I took her to the vet.
Needless to say as soon as the antibiotics were done it started again so they resumed another course. I knew this was way too much antibiotics, but followed the instructions of my vet. In the meantime, I went to Baron’s K-9, my local pet store, and mentioned what was going on. Karen, the salesperson, there recommended your food. She gave me samples and instructions. Maggie absolutely loved the food from the start and her Colitis cleared up within 48 hrs and we have not had any problems since!
She always picked at her food and sometimes wouldn’t eat at all and now lets just say she looks forward to every meal. I break her portions down to in the morning and at night and she is one happy girl. Her whole demeanor changed and her coat got even prettier.
Her stinky breath is gone and I noticed her tear stains became clear. I’ve enclosed some pictures to show you. In one photo you can see her eyes are clear (after),
In the second photo you can see how her eyes looked with the tear stains before the new diet! (before)
I also bought her Dr. Harvey’s Coconut Smiles and the Sweet Potate’r treats which are a major hit as well. I can’t thank you enough for creating such a wonderful diet for dogs. I think yours is the best by far as far as the results I have seen before my own eyes. The change is truly a “miracle” and my girl is proof of that. Please know I recommend your products all the time. The preparation process is so easy and so well worth it for my dog to feel her very best. She is only 2 years and 7 months old and I want her to enjoy every minute of her life and be as healthy as possible. Thank you so much for your time in reading my story. I will be trying your shampoos and other products as well as I feel completely confident.
