How to care for your small breed pup naturally and holistically

Good nutrition, supplements and common sense goes a long way.

Your pup is barely 2 lbs and you say “how do I keep my new furbaby well”.

Raw is an ideal way to feed your dog!

 Watch this video to see how easy it is.

Instincts Raw is simple and easy!

I have experimented with a lot of different foods.  Ultimately, it has to be simple and fast.  A dehydrated raw is also another excellent way to go, but I have found many people feel that is difficult and sometimes their dogs don’t eat it.

You cannot fool a dog or a puppy and “Nature’s Valley, Instincts Raw” is the real thing.

They go crazy for this food and it is good for them.

Although I am an advocate of feeding raw, I know many people have a hard time with it.  I have done it for over 30 years without any issues. Below you will see a little pup doing what he was made to do lol.

He is eating the real thing and loves it!

Beware, your vet will likely have a fit unless they are holistic.

Natural Dog Chews – Beef Marrow Bones

“I am not an advocate of cooked bones” but I believe in raw meaty bones and you will see that pups do as well.

I feed my dogs chicken backs once the fat is removed.  The bones are soft and they love it.  Keeps them satisfied for a long time.

Remember, it is a good idea to change things up.  Don’t keep feeding the exact same thing.  Some necks, some backs etc.

Also, change the protein type as well.  Duck, rabbit, lamb and sometimes a little beef.

Be sure to remove as much fat as you can. 

In the wild everything is lean.

Our dogs do not require all the fat that is in our human meat.  Neither do we for that matter.

This is another natural chew toy that the pups love and you can find it in any supermarket.

For many many years I have used beef marrow bones and I have not had an issue.

This works excellent for smaller dogs.

Take the marrow out and give the bone to them raw. The marrow is excellent for them, but it is just too much fat when they are tiny.

 Probiotics

Mercola dog probiotic

I use a probiotic to help with digestion and the transition to their new home.

You can buy Dr. Mercola’s probiotic here.

Digestion is the beginning of health.

I feel it is so important to maintain and support your pups immune system through their gut by using a good quality probiotic. This product has 50 Billion units.

Daily Supplement – “Spark”

A great addition to any diet that will give your dog or cat a boost.  Your dogs live in a toxic environment and need all the help they can get to overcome daily healthy challenges, just like us.  I would consider adding a quality supplement to their diet and this is one great option.

You can buy “Spark” here from Pet Well Being.Screen Shot 2016-09-05 at 10.53.02 PM

Natural Options for Heart worm and Flea Protection

I am currently using the “Pet Wellbeing, HearClean Gold” for daily protection against parasites, including heartworm. Screen Shot 2016-09-05 at 9.36.48 PM

It is a homeopathic remedy that worms hate.

Having your dog tested yearly and even twice a year is the best protection you can give them.

It takes 6 months for worms to show, so you will catch it early if there is an issue.

You can buy the product from many online stores or go to “PetWellBeing”.

 Natural Flea Shampoo

I use “EasyDefense” natural flea shampoo on my dogs and pups.  It is made by the same company as the Brewers Yeast and Garlic tabs “Only Natural Pet”.  You can order it here.

For 30 years I have fed my dogs raw food without one single incident or mishap.

If this is hard on you, I understand.

The video of the pup eating a chicken neck was shown because most people don’t believe it, including many vets.

 

I am not here to convince anyone that it works, but I and my dogs are living proof that natural can be safe and healthy.
