Bindi is one of many dogs we are currently helping, but she is also one of the more severe cases we have come across.
Her owner wanted us to share his story to help other owners in a similar situation.
Bindi went through a 6 month ordeal of vet visits. Her diet was changed up to a dozen times from vet prescribed food to pet shop super premium food as well as cortisone and steroid injections, and to top it off hormone tablets. Her situation just got worse. Until her owner came across a MfM brochure and contacted us to see if we could help.
Now after 6 weeks on a MfM diet, Bindi is coming along beautifully and has a new lease of life…

For many of us the ingredients list is a great way to see what we are feeding our four-legged friends. After some investigation regardless of the price in most cases this list looks outstanding. So where is the difference? After numerous discussions it comes down to how the raw product is cooked. A large portio n of cooked rolls on the market are cooked in vats. These temperatures rise to over 130 degrees, could you imagine cooking your own food at this temperature what it would look like and what actual nutrients are left.

Surely there is no such person as a dog owner who never gives his or her dog a treat. We all like to see our dog’s tail wag, and his face light up with attentive anticipation, right?
But how do you know that the treats you give him are healthy? It’s actually pretty simple. As with every food you buy (for yourself or your dog), it’s all about the ingredients.
If you do not already read the label of every food item you consider buying, get in the habit! Most of the information you need to know in order to determine the product’s quality is legally required to appear on the label.
Things to look for

Kim states "The product met all the requirements being natural and reasonably priced, with nothing to lose and a po...

Coat condition becoming dull even though they may be on a balanced diet can be a good indicator that there is still something missing from their diet. Their coat is a reflection from the inside out and how everything is travelling so any changes in coat condition should be investigated
If you feel your dog is a bit lethargic f...

Feeding Raw Bones to Dogs and Cats
Eating raw bones is as completely natural as eating fresh meat for dogs and cats. They come hand in hand, in the
wild. Both dogs and cats are natural hunters, cats always eating their food fresh, and dogs happy to eat fresh, or
decaying. Either way, catching and eating prey has always involved the consumption of bones.
Feeding bones to domestic dogs has been a time honoured tradition, and is still practiced by knowledgeable dog
breeders and pet owners. The feeding of bones to cats has had less emphasis in the past, as...
