10 Lessons from Pet Fooled Documentary

First Thoughts

Prior to watching Pet Fooled I knew that feeding raw was the healthiest option for my dogs. However, I only started feeding raw a couple years ago so I’m definitely not the perfect example. I was fooled by the dog food companies just as much as anyone else. I went with the “natural”, gluten-free, grain-free, soy free, corn-free foods too. No matter what I bought, Bolt was still throwing up stomach bile on a daily basis. He did this for almost 4 years before I learned about raw feeding. Since then I’ve noticed a change in his overall health and behavior.Pet Fooled documentary about what's really in our pets food.

Essential Oils for You & Your Dog

4th-of-july-titos-vodka-279Who else has witnessed their dog eat grass, only to throw up a few minutes later? We yell at them to “stop it” but they continue to go back for more. You’d think they would learn their lesson right!?! Well, they have learned their lesson and the lesson is, they do it on purpose. Hahaha! They ate the grass knowing, and hoping, that they would throw up after. Without even realizing it, your dog just used grass as medicine. Here me out.

4 Protein Sources a Week…You Got This!

If you’ve read our 5 Steps to Feeding Raw you saw that your dogs should get protein from at least four different sources per week. And you might have panicked a little bit. I did! This can sound very overwhelming but don’t be scared. If I can handle it, and Brent can, than you can. Haha! We lead busy lives so I’ve had to get creative and try a few different meal-prep ideas before I’ve found what works best. To be honest, there may even be a better way but so far, this is what I like.

5 Steps to Feeding Raw

Feeding raw is the single best thing I’ve ever done for my dogs. If you ever choose to make the jump from kibble to raw you will never look back! First, I want to share a few things with you. There is not one person in the world who knows your dog better than you! I’m not an expert. I’m not a veterinarian. I’m not a dog trainer. The things I’m about to write about are what works for me and my pack. We’ve been feeding raw for almost 2 years and this is all based on what I’ve learned from trainers and holistic veterinarians. If you are interested in reading about Our Raw Feeding Journey you can hear why we started feeding raw.

Our Raw Feeding Journey

Have you ever heard the quote, “Nothing makes me jump out of bed faster than hearing my dog about to puke on the carpet”? Yep, that was us, almost every day. Bolt was having tons of issues with keeping his kibble down. He was puking up stomach bile multiple times a day. His kibble was not sitting well with him. So, we tried different brands of food, both cheap and expensive, grain-free, hypoallergenic, beef, chicken, salmon and lamb. Still, he was puking. We would wet his food down before we gave it to him. Still, he was puking. It wasn’t stopping.
