Raw Food Delivered! Tired of shopping and lugging home rapidly thawing frozen dog food? Knowing inside that the number of freeze/thaw cycles raw foods go through really decrease the food quality? Problem solved: Steve’s Real Food for Dogs comes frozen solid on dry ice, fresh flash frozen from the makers, and ready to thaw as you need it, no muss, no fuss, no shlepping frozen stuff home.
Steve Brown was one of the first out there to develop the real deal, raw balanced diets for dogs. He did the due diligence so you don’t have to, and now you can get it sent directly to your door.
C’mere Spot! Your package has arrived!
Wysong You’d have a hard time finding fault with the foods and treats coming from Dr. Randy Wysong’s company in Midland, Michigan. He’s been dedicated to great products and sound ideas for many years, and I cut my nutrition teeth on some of his writings. This just may be the “sleeper” food in the pet food world: so good it should be in every pet dish, but many haven’t discovered it yet. Lots of cool products in wise packaging to keep the good in and the bad out.
Not a Johnny come lately, Dr. Wysong’s foods have served multiple generations of animals with great health benefits, and have weathered a large number of fads, the latest being “grain free.” If you’re really thinking, you’ll see “starch free” is what we’re after for our carnivores, and Wysong has the first truly starch-free kibble out there, called Epigen.
Do try them, and see which of his many foods I recommend by clicking the 10% off box there on the left side. And remember: Change it UP! Wysong Natural Pet Food

Dr. Mary Traverse, D.C., C.A.C.
Dr. Mary is my chiropractor, who I think the world of. She practices what I fondly call, “The homeopathy of chiropractic,” aka Network Chiropractic. This is a technique that is very gentle and subtle, but offers a huge beneficial effect. (Kind of like the right remedy, you see?) And, she’s certified to work on animals, after a year long professional training. So, bring the dog, call her for your horse, and get yourself treated all in the same visit! http://DrMaryTraverse.com
One of my clients whose dogs are in my care is a Gerson Person. Have you heard of this amazing therapy for helping your own body to heal itself of serious disease? “Dr. Max Gerson developed the Gerson Therapy in the 1930s, initially as a treatment for his own debilitating migraines, and eventually as a treatment for degenerative diseases such as skin tuberculosis, diabetes and, most famously, cancer. Healing is achieved through an organic, vegetarian diet, raw juices, coffee enemas for detoxification and natural supplements. You may learn more about the therapy at www.gerson.org or by contacting the Gerson Institute directly.”
My client is a Gerson certified Home Set-Up Trainer, so she does the bulk of the start up for you, in your own home. If you click the link above, you’ll find her. Or you can email me via my Contact page, and I’ll put you in touch.
