My Personal Experiences - Dog
The Importance of Feeding Healthy Pet Food
We used to buy our dog a brand of dog food that�many American pet owners��can find in any store. Being a puppy, our dog was always energetic and had a big appetite. She didn�t seem to have any immediate problems.

Maggie, our miniature dachshund I had a neighbor who had a puppy about the same age as mine. His puppy had a beautiful shiny hair. Compared to his dog, my dog�s hair looked very dull. One day, out of curiosity, I asked him what he did to keep his dog�s hair so shiny. He told me it must be the diet. He said he gave his dog a premium brand of dog food. I decided to try the dog food brand myself for my dog. My dog, who liked any food, accepted it willingly. I was happy about the dog food� or I thought.

When my dog reached almost a year old, she started to develop chronic waxy ear problems, especially her left ear. I often cleaned it, but the wax and odor kept coming back. I took her to the vet nearby. He glanced at her ear casually, and gave me an ear medication. I gave my dog the ear drop for a while, but it didn�t seem to work at all. This is when the dog also started to turn her nose away from the food I had given her for a while. It was time for me to find my dog a new dog food�a better quality dog food.

I had already been in search of holistic brand of cat food for our cat. (For my personal experience with my cat, click here.) I also started to look for holistic dog food for my dog. I found a good quality dog food in a health food store one day, and gave it to my dog. The result didn�t necessarily make me happy. Her feces were constantly loose. At first, I thought it was because I was switching to a new dog food, and that it might take a while for her stomach to adjust. Almost 2 months passed, and her stools were still too loose to clean up after her. I had to decide to move on and find her a new dog food. Her ear problem still persisted, too.

I found a holistic veterinarian and took our dog to her clinic for my dog�s ear problem. The vet examined the ear wax carefully and gave us a proper ear medication for my dog. Her ear wax cleared up soon. The holistic vet also told us the importance of proper nutrition in our pets� diet.

It was about the same timing that I started to feed our both dog and cat Life�s Abundance pet food. Just like our cat, our dog was happy with the food. Her feces were not loose any longer.

Years have passed since then. My dog�s persisting ear problem hasn�t come back since then. I don�t know if the temporary ear medication I gave her years ago has eliminated her chronic ear problem, or if the change of diet to Life�s Abundance dog food helped her overall immune system�probably both. Her feces have been in good condition. I now give both our dog and cat supplements, too. Although I didn�t give it much thought for a while, I now know that she has a beautiful shiny hair, which gives me lots of joy of taking many close-up photos of my dog and cat.
