Why are digestive enzymes so important for a pet’s diet?By helping food digestion, enzymes are completely responsible for unlocking vitamins, minerals and other important nutrients from the dry food that your dog is currently eating on a daily basis.

What happens to my pet if they are not using digestive enzymes?IF your pet is on a dry or a wet pet food they can develop a nutritional deficiency which can result in incomplete food digestion which allow for partially digested food particles to enter the bloodstream from the large intestines. This can lead to your pet’s immune system to go haywire ! This is a main reason for so many allergies appearing in our pets today!

Can digestive enzymes help my weaning puppy or kitten?Yes! Mother’s milk contain natural living enzymes while commercial puppy or kitten pet food does not.This will help with the transitioning stage and beyond…

Are enzymes added to commercial pet food ?Enzymes breakdown when exposed to any type of high temperatures in cooking. It is recommended that it is added to all dry and canned food diets your pet’s are using.If your pet is on daily medication  it is highly recommended that a digestive enzyme is used. Medications can cause the normal bacteria in a pet’s intestinal tract to become depleted and we al know that the immune system starts in the digestive tract of animals. This is what will boost your pet’s immune system and help them fight off allergies and many other ailments that are affecting our beautiful pets.

All in a day’s work…

A client came in and told me he had a Boxer that was 8 years old. He was also a healthy and energetic dog. Upon moving to Florida, his Boxer developed a problem with all of his paws.
Not knowing what this was, he visited many vets just to realize that his dog had a severe fungus .
It started off small and developed  over each toe (at the base of where his toe nail grew in)… He said it  looked like little “pimples” or raised bumps surrounding the base of the toe. It really hurt him as he walked. He tried every possible antibiotic but nothing would clear it up. Skeptical about trying something new, he decided to give the silver protein that I mentioned early on at the start of my blog.
If you remember the silver protein is an anti fungal liquid that when used really works!
So,he started using silver protein daily as a topical on these raised bumps and to his surprise they are all gone.

Just remember that you could add the silver protein to your pet’s water or use it as a topical anti fungal on the skin…It truly works wonders!!

It is really a great product to have in your first aid kit for your pet.

Does your pet food have any of these ingredients on the label?

The reason I started this blog is to inform and help my readers and customers come to a better understanding of the decisions we make for their pets. For those of you that come to Holistic Pet Cuisine and Market:  you have heard this already and are living with an allergy free pet!

I am so frustrated when I see so many pets come into our store on a daily basis with many treatable food allergies. After numerous visits to their vets and allergists, our clients are frustrated with seeing their pets suffer. They are also tired of giving their pets medicines as well as their monthly allergy shots. (sound familiar?).

I see more food allergies coming through my doors at Holistic Pet Cuisine that are completely treatable without the use of these conventional means. In the days ahead, I will be sharing with you all of the wonderful stories that I have come across and  I hope you will enjoy them and hopefully relate to them.

If you find your dog has any symptoms, then please write into me and I can help guide you in making your pet “allergy free”.

I bet you thought I was going to tell you to go holistic! If you did then you were right!!

Stick with me and I will clue you into some of the things you can do to help your pet!

More in the following days…


Did you know?

Did you know that most commercial kibbles often have allergens in them.

Did you know that some less expensive pet food have a longer shelf life and because of this they could also have mites that get into the bags from sitting for long periods of time in warehouses and stores.

Did you know that many dogs are allergic to these mites and wind up ingesting these  and thus leading a life filled with “allergies”.

Did you know that holistic pet food has a shorter shelf life and if you purchased it in a pet food store that is reputable then you can be sure there are no pesky mites in your pet’s food.

Could this be a cause of so many allergies, too?

If you are on a commercial pet food then you should ask yourself the following:

  • Are there preservatives in the food my dog or cat is eating?
  • Is there corn, wheat or soy (or all) in the ingredients?
  • Is there “chicken and chicken by products in the ingredients?  (like in the Prescription Diets!)

If you can answer yes to any off those questions and your pet has allergies then now is the time to change!

Many vets are not trained in diet issues and will just tell you to go buy their Prescription diets formulas but I find these ingredients make matters worse! Why can’t they get to the bottom of this problem? Why do they just fall back on medicines?

Does your dog or cat display any of these symptoms?

  • chronic ear infections
  • biting at their paws
  • scratching and biting at their bellies (and they do not have fleas)
  • welts or hives
  • vomiting its food
  • loose or runny stools

Then your dog has allergies that can be corrected!

Daisy’s Success





I should have opened with a story about why we opened Holistic Pet Cuisine and Market, but I chose to start by giving you information that I thought was more important to you.

Holistic Pet Cuisine and Market has been a labour of love for me and my husband.

In the last three years, after seeing thousands of customers come into the market, I have realized that all of our clients were having common symptoms ranging from ear infections, skin issues, vomiting, loss of hair, and colitis–just to name a few. Daily tracking of these issues revealed a commonality to all of them: the food or treats that they were ingesting.

After keeping track of each and every common symptom in every dog that came in, I  managed to identify and solve many food related issues that I was confronted with on a daily basis. It was shocking to think that these animals were incorrectly diagnosed!

Daisy came to us in October 2008 with uncontrollable vomiting and chronic intestinal issues! Her owner was at her wits end. Daisy visited one veterinarian after another for a total of five who scoped her twice and did an ultrasound on all her organs. (We know what that must have cost!). After all that, the last vet  started her on prednisone in June 2008. He told her that the prednisone will reduce the inflammation and help Daisy digest her food properly. Well, no results!

Daisy ‘s mom was determined  not keep her on the prednisone but give her foods that she would be able to digest without the help of medicine…

Well, she called me and said “help!” She lived over an hour away in Ft. Lauderdale but she still made the trip.

The veterinarian was trying to reduce the inflammation in the gut through the use of medicine (just to let you know she has been visiting her veterinarian on a monthly basis and he was completely monitoring her as well).

I suggested that she give the intestines a chance to “calm” down and the only way to accomplish this would be to narrow down the assortment and the amount of food going into her gut.

First, we placed her on a well known raw diet that she was able to tolerate and was not allergic to.  After many weeks of being on this single source protein her owner start weening her of of the prednisone. After several months of seeing success, we knew it was the right time to introduce into her diet another protein (still weening off the prednisone) This was also well tolerated!

The next step for Daisy was to alternate the protein, fruit and vegetables every other day so as to not overload her digestion.We then added a excellent probiotic and an unbelievable enzyme to assist her in the breakdown of her food. The final straw was a great skin and coat supplement that supplied her with additional vitamins as well as an Omega 3, 6, 9 and as of today, August 22, 2009 Daisy has been off of prednisone for a total of 45 days!

Daisy and her owner will stay on this diet forever and never go back on the prednisone! She has finally regained her freedom from her daily routine of vomiting!!!

Her veterinarian is in shock and disbelief that Daisy is thriving, growing and given the freedom that medicines  in her case did not help!

Please note that this might not woRk for all dogs but let us find the right foods and make it work for you too…!

Alvin, a raw success!

Alvin a testimonial to the raw food diet

Alvin a testimonial to the raw food diet

Alvin is one of the true survivors….I met Alvin after he was given the terrible news that he would not make it if he could not digest the food he was eating… With very little time on his side and pessimism from all of his veterinarians, his owner came into our store and decided against what all her vets had told her not to do and she tried the raw diet. Alvin’s story made me a true believer in the benefits of feeding a raw food diet to your dog. Alvin had trouble digesting everything he put into his system. After every meal, he would throw up what he had eaten . After visiting every specialist in South Florida and spending a great deal of money, his owner decided to go against all odds and feed him the Primal Raw food diet.Well, more than a year has past and Alvin has gained weight, kept his food down, and is playing with his Wubba as if he were a puppy.

Do you know what collodial silver does?

What is Colloidal silver ?

Colloidal silver kills bacteria, and some viruses by destroying the enzyme responsible for cellular respiration, depriving the organisms of their ability to breathe and preventing them from developing resistance and immunity.

Did you know you can use colloidal silver topically as well as orally for many issues such as cuts, bug bites, hot spots, loss of hair, yeast infections and many cold like symptoms. Small quantities of colloidal silver can assist the body to fight micro-organisms .

Many veterinarians turn to  “antibiotics” on a monthly basis to prevent many of these types of bacterial infections.

Ask your veterinarian about this wonderful “natural drug” instead of an antibiotic every month !

Many of my clients have told me that they can not believe how their pets hot spots and skin irritations have finally gone away thanks to the use of this holistic product.

What is Doga?

Doga is a form of yogic practice which has been specially adapted for dogs; a practitioner of doga is known as a dogi. In a doga session, dogs and their owners work through a series of yoga poses together; the session may also include things like meditation and eye-gazing to strengthen the bond between human and dog. Classes can be found in many parts of North America and Europe, lasting anywhere from 20 minutes to three hours, and designed for everyone from novice dogis to experienced yogis.

Thinking of having a Doga session at Holistic Pet Cuisine ….

Tips for the day!

Never feed cat food to your dog! Cat food is generally too high in protein and fats.
