Dogs Naturally Magazine is both a print & a digital publication about a natural, holistic approach to a healthy dog lifestyle. Their dedicated writers are holistic veterinarians, breeders, trainers, and dog owners who cover anything from balanced, minimally processed diets to allergies & diseases, vaccination protocols, training, energy healing, senior dog care, and so much more.
I subscribed to their print publication (6 issues per year) in mid 2015 when I began changing Missy & Buzz’s diets from processed kibble & wet food to a homemade, and then raw one. I love their educational articles and seeing advertisements from smaller businesses whose main focus is the health & well-being of our best friends!
Fellow blogger & raw feeder Kimberly Gauthier writes about her approach to feeding her pack of four pups a healthy, species-appropriate raw diet. I have found and continue finding nuggets of knowledge in her blog posts.
Chow Hounds by Dr. Ernie Ward, DVM
This book by veterinarian Dr. Ernie Ward gives an insight into the causes of dog obesity and proactive suggestions of how to embark on a healthy weight loss journey with an overweight pup.
He is a proponent of a homemade diet and shares several recipes of home cooked meals in his book. While my dogs are on raw diet, I did feed them homecooked meals during our transitioning phase from kibble, which is certainly a lot healthier than the highly processed commercial dry (& wet!) food.
It’s an inspiring read!
Give Your Dog A Bone by Dr. Ian Billinghurst, B.V.Sc.[Hons], B.Sc.Agr., Dip.Ed.
Australian veterinarian Dr. Ian Billinghurst has been a proponent of the raw food diet since the 1980s, particularly of the many health benefits of raw meaty bones.
I reviewed his book in my blog post: Book Review Of The Raw Feeding Bible – Give Your Dog A Bone by Dr. Ian Billinghurst.
