How gratifying to see my Castor/Pollux brand of food featured. When I make bone broth for the dh & self, I use the strained veggies -after laboriously picking out the onion quarters (gonna leave the garlic in from now on) - and most of the fat to make a mash which I freeze in muffin tins. After frozen, they go in zip bags and 1 is mixed weekly w/their dry food. I mix LOTS of water with their food - they get only 2 cups a day.
I have had 9 Samoyeds over the course of 40 years - no vaccinations, no wormers, no flea/tick collars, very, very few vet visits. They do get lots of exercise in our woods - 10 miles before breakfast is usual. Beowulf, born here 17 yrs. ago, became a surprise papa for the first time at 13. He's deaf & mostly blind but eats well & still runs around and tries to keep his 4yr. old son in line. His child bride, Rosie, 5 yrs. is the light of his life. She came to comfort him when his own mother, Stella, died at age 15. Sheesh - you'd think I'd know where puppies come from after all this time! Good food, no doctors - works for man and beast.

I have Collies, which would die if you gave them livestock dose Ivermectin. Not only Collies, but a high percentage of Shetland Sheepdogs, Australian Shepherds, and most other white-footed herding breeds lack the blood/brain barrier and chemicals go straight to the brain and kill them. Recently 9 Collies were killed by their owners who used a livestock medication for worms. Please don't advocate the use of Ivermectin.

I noticed that Blue Buffalo was not on the list on this video. What do you think about that product?

Thanks Dr. Group, been trying the Oxy-Powder and Iodine on my 12 year old Corgy Mix and he is back to his self again running around like a puppy. I can't believe what it's doing for myself aswell, the energy levels increase, aswell as your focus. Will be buying much more, Also on here looking to see if you have an affiliate program and I find out about your videos and this one in particular, Amazing! My little buddy's been my shadow for 12 years all over Canada with me, so I also ordered both of your Pet products to see what else they will do for him. You're my absolute favorite person right now buddy,.. lol

I would luv to have your suggestion on doses of wormwood and black walnut for prevention of Heartworm. i.e. amounts and how often.
Also how much D. earth at meal time. How much would you say is too much? The doggie is 50 pounds.
Also how much zinc oxide, garlic, and brewers yeast. I would like to mix up enough for 2 to 3 months for both heartworm and flea and tick prevention.

For a 50 pound dog about 1 teaspoon of DE mixed in with the food 1-2x weekly should do good. I use the product Paratrex on my 25 pound dog and give him 1/2 dropper-full a couple of times weekly which has all the deworming herbs in it. So for your dog maybe 1 full dropper. About a 1/4 teaspoon Garlic and 1 tablespoon of brewers yeast can be used about 1-2x weekly on food. There are other recipes though if you search online. Dr. Group

The information is very general and common sense. As someone who has dealt with animal health for a long time, I do appreciate most of the information provided here, even though most of it should be well known to cautious pet parents. However, I should disagree with the notion of raw food. Raw meat in any form or shape is not 100% safe. There are pathogens that can easily lodge between muscle fibers and other locations that can cause serious problems. Even if you get your meat from an organic farmer, unless the ground, grass and the soil have been sterilized there is always a risk. Again, this comes down to what level of risk people are comfortable with. Along that line, I think there was another important topic that was left out from the food discussion. Obviously high quality ingredient are of major importance , but there was no mention of the percentage of proper protein to fat to carb ratio. Normally anything below 20% protein, organic or not, does not provide sufficient nutrition for canines and felines. I think comparing domesticated dogs and cats to their wild ancestors on an absolute scale is not a great idea. The genetic material of our domesticated animals has greatly changed so has their nutritional need and immune responses.
Also, not all herbs are safe to cats. Some herbal oils cause severe toxicity in cats.
In terms of shampoos, you can use natural human grade shampoos but the PH and other properties of animal specific shampoos are better suited for use in animals.
Finally, I think this clip would have been more informative if a natural or holistic veterinarian was consulted. Human doctors are not properly trained for animal medicine and visa versa. Even within the veterinarian community, there are disagreements. Some products are extremely toxic to one breed and not to others. Therefore, I think this program could immensely benefit from adding the perspective of trained professional.

So most of us here on Gaiam eat mindful (most of the time :) for ourselves and for our pets. I have struggled to clear up my bit pulls rash for many years. Change his diet many times but still has a rash… anyone have any suggestions or ideas?

Love the products Dr. Group offers like his Oxygen Plus for your colon and
ArthrOrganics for Pets
A new formulation of organically certified nutritional botanicals, specifically designed to lessen the discomfort of arthritis in pets. Contains 2 fluid oz.

Coconut oil kills fungus. Soothes the skin. Safe to eat and dogs love it. It kills candida overgrowth in the alimentary canal, the rooter to the tooter. If the rash is an allergic reaction, not sure if the coconut will be the trick. However, candida overgrowth is usually the cause of allergic skin rashes. At any rate, the cocnut oil isn't harmful and your dog will smell good.

I changed to partially raw and partially cooked chicken without bones but in home made bone broth (no onions) with vegetables, added minerals and other natural ingredients about half way through my dogs life. Stopped vaccines and any other medicines-she had skin problems. I changed after reading a book on oils and then looked at her supposedly good quality store bought foods and thought how it had to be rancid. I know it worked for her as I went on a trip and left with the "baby sitter" packets of ready prepared food, but they forgot it and gave her what their dogs ate. When I got back she was scratching away and skin raw. It took about a week to get her back in shape again. It is important what they eat. She was with me until the age of 17 years and active (a little hard of hearing toward the end) until about the last 4 months of her life. I was very thankful for that! My friends dog passed at 17 also and I thought well maybe what I did didn't really make a difference, but then realized their dog was in and out of the vet and on all kinds of medications. Yes it does make a difference!

i started feeding my 10 year old cat raw food about 6 months ago. she has become much stronger, gained weight (she was always very whispy) and is more assertive. please consider this, everyone!

Good to align with nature, not go against it. My dogs love raw meat and bones.

Here is some great subject that MUST be touched: Alcool, drugs, coffee, tea, chocolate, natural homemade medicines, addictive products, talking about how we can reduce stress, meditation? Your show is awesome, you turn me organic, no joke! I greatly reduce restaurants so buying more expensive food don't affect my finances.

Just wanted to say thanks and continue doing what you are doing!

Loved the "animal digest" comment for an ingredient--"must be a magazine"--I laughed out loud on that one!

I wish there were more information out on cat health. Most of this interview was around dogs. Where's the cat health information out there?
