The Veggie Blend contains a herbal blend of Parsley, Garlic, Kelp, Bee Pollen and a mix of Sea Veggies. Many thanks for the help fitting Grover with a training collar and especially the buffalo sample that you gave him yesterday.
Fortunately, there are more and more veterinarians who are proponents of feeding the raw diet; indeed, some of them actually buy their pet food from our store, True Carnivores.
When native Eskimos were first observed and studied they were said to have a degree of physical excellence rarely found in any other race. They ate salmon and other fish, seal oil, fish eggs, caribou, nuts gathered by mice and squirrels, kelp, berries, blossoms, grass, the stomach contents of caribou, the organs of large sea mammals and the various layers of whale skin. It is only when the Eskimos began to be touched by modern civilization, first by the Russians and then by the Americans after the purchase of Alaska by the U.S. Ironically, and tragically, it has been the veterinarians own ‘favoured’ foods that have recently been the ‘health risks’: consider the many brand name pet foods recalled due to tainted ingredients.
First of all, if there is ‘little scientific evidence’, then, by default, they agree that there is some scientific evidence to support the efficacy of these raw diets. Another reason: most of the major pet foods are owned by the ‘human food’ conglomerates like Proctor and Gamble (owns Iams and Eukanuba), Colgate-Palmolive (owns Science Diet), and Nestles (who owns Fancy Feast, Alpo, Friskies, Dog Chow, Cat Chow, Puppy Chow, Kitten Chow, Beneful, One, ProPlan, Tender Vittles, Purina Veterinary Diets).
Pet food provides a convenient way for slaughterhouse offal, grains considered “unfit for human consumption,” and similar waste products to be turned into profit.
However, there have been a few long-term studies on raw versus cooked pet foods, one of which was done by Dr.
This ‘no scientific research’ declaration is a cop-out claim that has been used to “debunk” raw diets and suppress the truth. Historically, there are volumes of evidence to support the raw diet: just take a peek at evolution. I believe that many vets have not bothered to educate themselves concerning the raw food diet. Commercial pet foods are riddled with contaminants from bacteria, fungi and their toxic metabolic by-products, to euthanasia drugs and antibiotics. Now they are saying: So IF you do decide to recommend raw, then beware of the ‘”potential” liabilty’. And their belief in ‘illness due to pathogens’ resides in the questionable veracity of the ‘germ theory’: do germs make us sick, or, do we get sick due to a weakened immune system that allows the germs entrance. So the theory underpinning our entire medical model was denounced by its founder before he died. However, since the Germ is so profitable, the medical world has written off his final statements as the madness of a dying man. Well that makes a lot of sense to educate pet owners concerning proper hygiene around raw foods for their pets. Believe it or not, dog food has not always controlled an entire aisle in your local grocery store. Before that, most people fed their dogs what was available including left-overs, scraps of food, and some times inexpensive cuts of meat from the local butcher – another artifact of the past. The idea for special food for dogs gained popularity as mill operators and slaughter houses found dog food to be a good market for their by-products. When a group of touring physicians witnessed a lung resection using only acupuncture as the anesthesia, do you know what they concluded? As for zoonotic infectious (diseases which can be naturally passed from animals to humans, and vice versa), there are a myriad of animals capable of facilitating this passage, including: bats, cats, dogs, horses, mosquitoes (West Nile Virus), raccoons, rodents, and fish.
Although their statements are always couched in the ubiquitous word “potential”, I believe that they are doing nothing more than scaremongering. To acquire a zoonotic (animal-to-man) infection is not all that easy, if one takes a few simple, common-sense precautions. As for dogs shedding bacteria in their feces: do not eat dog poo and wash your hands after feeding your dogs or cleaning up after them.
Cats are fussy eaters, so variety, freshness, and warming the food to room temperature (not in the microwave) will keep your cat eating a healthy diet.
Some suggested supplements to add to your cats diet might include Salmon Oil, Cod Liver Oil, Vitamins E and C, a multi B Vitamin or Salmon Treats. Ingredients: 90% meat, with heart and liver, ground, 5% raw ground veggies, 5% supplements, free range eggs, yogurt, parsley, kelp, salmon oil, bee pollen. The blend consists of at least five of the following veggies: Broccoli, Zucchini, Cauliflower, Yams, Beets, Squash, Pumpkins, Lettuce, Carrots, Parsnips, Turnips, Apples, Pears, Watermelon, Berries, Canteloupe and Honeydew.
They were robust, happy, had beautiful and straight teeth, sturdy bones, were well muscled and had incredible endurance and resistance against astonishing climactic conditions. I believe that one reason is because the Multi-National Pet Food Companies don’t want to proceed with expensive studies that they can’t ultimately make money on. This waste includes intestines, udders, heads, hooves, and possibly diseased and cancerous animal parts.
But one must realize that there is NO evidence whatsoever to prove that kibbled, processed foods are good for your pets. Look at how the animals have survived for thousands of years on hunting, killing, and eating their prey raw. Nor have they tried to disprove the theory that commercial dog foods are the best way to feed dogs. I mean, for over 10 years now, I personally have been feeding my 2 dogs a raw prey diet, and it is only the BENEFITS, not the risks that I am seeing.
Even in the Canadian Veterinary Journal, October 2003, two veterinarians published their paper entitled: ‘In support of bones and raw food diets’. Studies have shown that bacteria could be cultured from every dry food tested, and bacterial endotoxins were present in every tested food, indicating significant bacterial contamination prior to processing.
In view of the recent deaths of pets due to the tainting of commercial pet foods that the pet food companies have always touted as safe and 100% balanced, vets need to be more concerned about the ‘”potential” liability’ of commercial pet foods than raw meat. But his denouncement came too late to stop the medical-industrial complex, which was taking shape at just that time.
In 1860, the first processed dog food was introduced by James Spratt, of Cincinnati, Ohio who developed a biscuit made of wheat, beet root, vegetables and beef blood. Since many of these meat sources were non-human grade, the practice became common to mix these with the grains and cook them together for many hours or days to kill bacteria and disease. You and I would have jumped up and down with the discovery of this wonderful procedure, however, the medical community admitted only that this was something that had to be studied. Even the American Medical Association agrees that: “PEER REVIEW is not perfect, and when it is done sloppily, journals publish research that is flawed. And then there is the risk of contaminated vegetables, like the spinach scare of September 2006. Freezing meat before preparing, and using food-grade hydrogen peroxide or grape seed extract, are effective techniques for controlling bacterial contamination of meat. Handle the raw meat you feed your dogs the same way you handle your own raw meat (which can get you sick if you eat it raw or do not clean up well enough afterward; do the experts really think that people are not smart enough to figure out that they should wash their hands and countertops after preparing raw meaty bones for their dogs? The raw food diet is an attractive concept, however I was concerned when I read the position statement from the Canadian Veterinary Association on raw diets (below). I have been researching and feeding the raw prey diet for over a decade now and have yet to see any adverse effects in my dogs.
Hopefully this rebuttal will help to answer some of your questions concerning the advantages of feeding the raw diet, and the disadvantages of feeding a cooked, dehydrated, grain-based food.
They were a testament to what nature could do without the interference of modern food machinery.


He lists dry food, including his company’s own brands, as only 7 out of 10, 1 out of 10 being the ideal. When young animals were fed cooked and processed foods they initially appeared to be healthy.
The only research that has been done into processed foods was performed to see a) if dogs could be fed a grain-based food, b) if dogs could survive acceptably on these processed foods for a short period of time, c) if X brand of food can do such-and-such for the dog (help with kidney disease, help with diabetes, help with obesity), and d) if X brand of food is “better” (more palatable, better liked, less total stool volume, etc.) than Y brand of food. Well, who is going to pay for an extensive research study on raw diets when the evidence may be damning?
Some skeptics say that dogs and cats didn’t live very long in the wild – but the fact that they are still with us, after all these years, is a testament (yea, even historically scientific) to the fact that raw prey diets kept them going all these years as a viable species!
What they have done is assume that commercial foods are the best way to feed dogs and assume that biologically appropriate diets are inferior. And there are the over 5,000 four-legged dogs and cats who visit our store that have their owners exuberantly testifying to the increase in health they see when switching them over to raw. We are comfortable and confident in doing this, because we have educated ourselves in canine and feline nutrition”. These moneyed interests, essentially a cartel, formed the American Medical Association to destroy the homeopathic medical profession, which was and is dedicated to just the terrain of which Pasteur spoke. The final mix was then formed into pellets that were easily bagged for convenience of feeding. Only Western arrogance could possibly poo poo this three thousand year old medical procedure. I won’t go into the horrors of factory farming, feedlots, and confinement operations, the unbelievable garbage fed to those unfortunate animals (including their own urine-soaked bedding and recycled feces), nor into the toxins poured on our farmlands as pesticides, fungicides, and “fertilizer”. In fact, it was my cat that most profoundly showed me the health-giving properties of the raw diet. But, unfortunately, it does give opportunity to cause alarm, whether or not that alarm is warranted. When they ate animals, they ate everything raw, including the fat, kidneys, brains, crushed bones and marrow.
However, as the animals reached adulthood, they began to age more quickly than normal and also developed chronic degenerative disease symptoms. One sales rep (for a dry pet food) told me that even if it were proved that dry food is “potential” poisoning our pets, he would continue to feed it (to his pets) because it was so convenient and cheap. Now a trillion-dollar-a-year business, the industry has more than enough resources, money and power to fund the educations of our next crop of doctors and epidemiologists, who in turn populate the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Food and Drug Administration, the National Institutes of Health and all the top research institutions. If you have kids, teach the children not to eat dog poo and clean up immediately after your dog, and you will not need to worry.
Then, as I learned a little bit more, and especially after one of my cats developed chronic cystitis, I changed to one of those premium brands carried by the local veterinarian.
People everywhere are turning to organic foods and non-toxic medical treatments for themselves – do our animal companions – who trust us utterly to provide for them – deserve any less? At the age of 18, having been fed a ‘high-grade’ kibble and canned food diet all her life, she showed signs of severe illness: low energy, crystals in her urine, hyperthyroidism, and instability in her back legs that prevented her from walking up and down stairs. He states that “Salmonellae has been found in commercial pet foods, something the public never learns”.
A control group of animals raised on raw foods aged less quickly and were free of degenerative disease. He also went on to say that working for this particular company gave him a good salary and lots of opportunities to travel, and he wasn’t willing to give either up. In the West, we are very paranoid, for we cannot accept any proof whatsoever from the Orient, without subjecting it to our rigorous methods. Years later, after I figured out that even those veterinarian-recommended foods had some very serious problems, I decided that it would be a very good compromise to feed a variety of the “health-food” brands, those that contained no animal or meat by-products and no chemical preservatives.
The pet food industry takes the dregs of the human food industry, and turns it into a multi-billion dollar, worldwide profit center. Veterinarian advice depleted, my partner and I decided to see if the raw food diet would ‘help’ in any way. This is nonsense (it is a waste of time), for the simple fact that: If something does not work, it does not last three thousand years… Well, when you consider that the subtle energies the Chinese have known for centuries (earth and heaven energies) are just today being discovered (and renamed) by our physicists, what do you think? You are just as likely, if not more likely, to get sick from your produce or a strange bathroom. It’s no accident that most major pet food companies are subsidiaries of much larger business conglomerates. You do not need to worry about the dog tracking bacteria through the house; there is plenty of bacteria throughout the house anyway, so any additional bacteria a raw-fed dog might add is negligible. Waste products from a cereal factory can be turned into pet food, keeping all the profit “in the family”. Thousands of people – even immuno-compromised people – feed their dogs raw with no bacteria issues and with stronger immune systems as a result. While it is true that most commercial foods are “adequate” and will keep our pets alive, it does not necessarily follow that they provide “optimal” nutrition that will guarantee our animal companions vibrant good health and long life. Within weeks, her coat became shiny and soft again, her appetite returned (with gusto), and her overall strength improved to the point that she was able to easily negotiate stairs again.
My oldest cat recently died at well over 20 years of age, and up until the end, she was running up and down the stairs – but believe me, it must have been good genes, because my ignorance about food never did a thing for her! And even those few courageous pet food companies, who are truly trying to produce a decent food at a reasonable price, suffer from the same problem as all pet foods – it’s all processed, “dead” food.
Then why is it that this Science that produces our medicines, tests our medicines, and prescribes our medicines, determines every ten years that 50% of our medicines should be taken off the market and replaced by new medicines?
Only since researching the problems of commercial pet food have I converted to raw foods as the primary nutrition for my pets. If our pets stand any chance of a truly healthy life in a selfish, greedy and polluted world, we have to take responsibility for it.
In Chinese medicine, the only constant is change, and yet little has changed over the centuries in their concepts of human health care.
I did this reluctantly – it takes time and resources, and not only am I lazy, I don’t have a big freezer! I was also a little concerned about my two-year old cat, Marcus, who a client of mine found abandoned in an alley, seriously ill, as a 3-week old kitten.
And it’s our consumer dollars that will force the long-overdue changes that have to occur in order to sustain this world. In our clinic, however, we have supplemented raw meat to our clinic residents as well as many sick cats for over 5 years, and we have never seen a problem attributable to this practice. Many clients have reported improvements in their cats’ overall health, as well as remission of chronic health problems, by feeding home-prepared foods. The creek was rising and the fish were a bit sluggish, but I was able to tempt a few wild browns to hit my Yozuri stick bait.
My animals eat as well as I do (or better, since they are not addicted to Wendy’s!), and they look and feel great. Organic raw beef, in fact, has literally saved Marcus’s life on more than one occasion when he took a turn for the worse. I don't question why, but I will say that the Berkley Trout Worm in a PINK or ORANGE color will usually get you a few bites.
With that being said, I have created my own Pink Worm that has enabled me to land many trout, both wild and stocked. So, I am sorry for that.A Now, when the power is out for 7 days and the clean-up effort at your house is over, you need a few hours to unwind.


A few local streams were scheduled to be stocked with trout-- Manatawny Creek, Hay Creek and Tulpehocken Creek.
I should be in very good company this year with my best friend Mark and a college buddy named Mark joining in the fun.
I managed a few smallmouths and had a nice brown follow my 3-inch stickbait for about 15 yards. It was pretty cool, the water was clear and you could see the fish slash and slash at the stickbait. Can't wait to fish all the local streams, as they all will have a new look and feel to them. I have no idea what Erie will look come late October, early November, but I am hoping they get some serious rain up there.
All in all we landed 8 species of fish: Largemouth Bass, Smallmouth Bass, Rock Bass, Redbreast Sunfish, Bluegill, Green Sunfish, Fallfish and a Crappie. She looks at me with a absolutely no freakn way look and goes, so daddy, How much money do I have to pay you. There is no better way to cool down in the summer heat than wet wading and catching some fish. Smallies, Largemouth Bass, Redbreast Sunfish, Bluegill and a White Perch were the fish I brought to hand. The temps during the day were brutal and the skeeters made me pay for attempting to fish Cherry Run. I only fished where some cool tributary water emptied into Penns.Saturday was tricky with a few bugs in the air. Sunday evening was reverse fashion -- Isos then BWOs.I got a half-decent picture of a Iso stuck in the shuck.
The fish took a CDC Sulphur pattern -- it was DARK, no light at all when the fish took the fly.
I stayed off Penns during the heat of the day-- it was 90 degrees in the afternoon on both days. I made an attempt to fish Cherry Run and landed 2 brookies in short order on my Moth pattern. The sportsman then proceeds to tell me that he is going to cross the creek and kick my BLEEPITY BLEEP. Spoke to the gentleman again, with Ronnie explaining that the area is posted and the signs are on the road. They are easy to see too, especially when the wings are made of CDC.A I won't be out fishing again any time soon.
If you want to wet a line--give me a shout and I'll do my best to put you on some fish.A Trout fishing locally will cease with water temps hovering around 70 degrees. Big Spring Creek, Letort, Yellow Breeches, Big Fishing Creek or Spring Creek are some of the streams that are fishable in the summer.
We can also hike along some cool mountain creeks in search of native brook trout or wild brown trout. Vinny caught a Smallmouth Bass on a worm and Zoe landed a nice-sized Brown Trout on a crayfish lure. I'll probably be fishing with a friend on Sunday evening or taking the rugrats to drown some worms!!! A Sunday, I was able to fish a local Class A water and noticed many Blue-Winged Olive spinners. I managed one fish landed, one fish missed and one fish lost before I had to run to the truck.
Best trick tonight was to cast down and across and inch an emerger back to the shore, pausing it at spots were a fish just rose. I made my cast---the fish slid out from under the brush---he sat in a lane with his mouth open waiting for my fly---with ease, he swallowed the fly.
No wild trout today, but the Rainbows were very colored up with beautiful pink fins and the Browns looked like they have been living in the stream for years. Thursday was brutal where I saw creeks that were in perfect shape one minute, turn into Willy Wonka within' two hours. I volunteered a few hours Sunday morning with the A Great Day Outdoors fellas, Roger and Bob who help put together the Bob and Jeff Miller Trout Fishing Clinic, which is a mentoring program for the Big Brothers and Big Sisters.The fish were provided by Mike's Tattoo and Body Piercing that is located in Reading, PA. I helped a few kids land some trout and was able to see many folks that I have not seen in a few years. We had a great time and found some really neat critters and managed to catch a fish or two. We caught a good number of wild brown trout and missed many more.The slower pools had fish sipping in Little Yellow Stoneflies. Plenty of yardwork to make the little woman happy, drive happy little woman to her mother's house and call your best friend to go fish a stream you have not fished in about 15 years. Saw a huge Barred Owl fly up the stream and hang out in a tree for a little bit before he flew elsewhere.
He launched them up out of the water and onto the dirt bank like the bass fisherman do on tv. After I saw him boot his 4th fish in about 20 minutes, he goes: That's what I came here for. Two-- a stickbait--a Yozuri Pin's Minnow is my favorite-- is also tough to beat during cold, high and dirty water conditions. Three -- My favoritefor fly fishing is a 2 fly rig that consists of a bigger and brighter glowbug with a Green Weenie dropped off of it. If there are rainbows around, they will hammer a nicely presented egg pattern pretty much any time of the year. Local Class A waters are running at agood rate and are still on the cold side.Trout season opens next weekend for SE PA waters.
Headed to the Little Lehigh and when I got there the lot was full and anglers were top to bottom.
Fished the quarry hole and managed toland a few bluegill and a good number of smaller Largemouth Bass.
Most ofthe bass were taken on smaller ice spoons tipped with waxies.With the heatwave we are in, not sure how much longer the ice will be around.
Drilling through the ice with my Nils 8 inch ice auger was too much for my shoulders.Hey, I have an 8 inch Nils Ice Auger for sale !!! The PFBC was on the ice and it was the first time in over 10 years that I had my license checked.
We started the day using tungsten jigs, then switched to shrimpos and did some sight fishing. I don't question why, but I will say that the Berkley Trout Worm in a PINK or ORANGE color will usually get you a few bites.
Can't wait to fish all the local streams, as they all will have a new look and feel to them.
