I started on my path of raw feeding when I got my job at Darwin’s. I will never forget my first day; touring processing procedures, hearing about our sourcing policies, volumes of product formulations, and reading books upon books from the various nutritionists we follow.
I have two smallish collies, Baxter and Sheila. I think they are both pretty healthy. Over the years my vet and friends have warned me that switching foods can cause all kinds of problems like diarrhea or vomiting.
Simply, it means it meets the latest scientific standards. Or that the food’s nutrient content meets or exceeds standards developed by various American and European agencies based upon the latest scientific studies of nutrient requirements of dogs and cats.
Diatomaceous earth is the fossilized remains of marine plants; when we use it, it’s a fine, white powder. Many people are familiar with the use of diatomaceous earth (DE) as a natural flea killer.

For the past 6 years I have been receiving requests for what we call, “Menu Consultations.” Many of these emails are from pet parents with cats or dogs with complicated health issues, wondering if a balanced raw diet will help.
Rather than write another book, I decided to write a blog series, so that this valuable information is available to all for free. In this series I will give the details you need to know to provide the best foods for your dogs.
