How To Keep Your Dog Healthy

   One of the most helpless feelings for a pet parent is when our pups aren’t feeling good. They can’t tell us where they hurt and we are left to guess or take a trip to the veterinarian. The question is, “What can we do to help protect our best friends from illness?”
How To Keep Your Dog Healthy
Dr. Harvey's Paradigm
• Feed high quality food
We feed the Bayou Boys Dr. Harvey’s Paradigm. It is a “green food” pre-mix that is specially-blended as the perfect base for a low carb diet. Holistic vets believe this can help prevent, manage and overcome serious problem like obesity, immune issues, diabetes and even cancer!

• Regular veterinarian visits
Your veterinarian should give you a schedule for regular check-ups. Puppies and senior dogs need to see their vet more often to ensure their quality of health.
Dr. Harvey's E-Mune Boost
• Add Supplements
Bentley and Pierre get daily supplements. One we recommend is Dr. Harvey’s E-Mune Boost. This whole-food supplement contains powerful herbs that help the body’s immune fighting abilities. It is filled with vitamins and minerals that may help combat disease.

• Fresh Water
It is very important that our dogs stay hydrated. Fresh water should always be readily available at all times. Water bowls need to be washed daily.

• Exercise
Dogs need daily exercise to stay healthy and help them control their weight. Walking is a great way to bond and stay in shape together. They will appreciate getting out of the house as much as you. Of course, if you can’t go for a walk, be sure to play some games indoors.

• Lots of Love
Dogs need love every single day. They are not meant to be put outdoors and forgotten about except for feeding time. You will find that both you and your dog’s overall health will improve with unconditional love. A few belly rubs and snuggles never hurt either!

    1. All of Dr. Harvey's foods are fabulous! Pierre knows if I run out and he has to eat something else for a day or two. He won't hardly touch any other food. Our dogs are so lucky.

  15. Great information! My childhood dog Ginny lived for 17 years. In those days we didn't really have pets' health as top of mind as we do today - there was so little accurate information. I always think how lucky we were to have her for so many healthy years. I truly believe the huge amount of exercise she got every day running in the woods next door had something to do with it. Lots of exercise and keeping their weight down is so important, especially combined with a super healthy diet.
