My dog’s health care program

I currently share my home with 3 dogs. Daisy, our Golden Retriever, Fearless the Border Collie and Wyatt the collie/husky.

All the dogs follow a fairly basic health program. I feed Dynamite Ultimate Dog Food, and occasionally supplement the dog food with pulp from the juicer, cooked and raw vegetables, and a bit of fruit. Most days they just eat the Ultimate, wetted with warm water. The Ultimate is grain-free and very calorie dense. My largest dog only eats 2 heaping cups daily and stays at a perfect weight.
Spring and fall, the dogs spend 28 days on Dynamite Herbal Tonic and Waiora Natural Cellular Defense (NCD). The Dynamite Herbal Tonic contains a variety of herbs known for liver cleansing and having vermifuge (anti-parasitic) properties. The NCD contain zeolite, a mineral that binds to and removes heavy metals.
As the dogs age, I usually give them either Dynamite Free & Easy or a mix of yucca, MSM and Ester C to support their joints.
The dogs get filtered well water to drink.
I feed the dogs raw beef bones or chicken necks to chew, to keep their teeth clean and get some fresh meat into them.
I have been following this very basic program for years, and the dogs have consistently tested negative for heartworms or other parasites.
I do vaccinate for rabies according to Pennsylvania law. My hope is that the rabies challenge will lead to a revision to the law to allow for titers rather than the vaccine.
For fleas, I sprinkle Borax on the carpets and vaccum, or bath the dogs in mild soap and water. 8 minutes in soap drowns most fleas. Neem oil can also be helpful repelling fleas. I use the Dynamite DynaShield as a topical repellent before taking the dogs hiking.
The dogs also received one round of puppy vaccines.
That is my dogs’ entire health program. Simple. The dogs glow with health.
