7 Tips for a Healthier Pet

Hi fellow faithful readers… welcome to Thursday.

Economic Help…

Some people really don’t have much money, and this is impacting health care decisions for their pet.

Makes sense.

The average Vet visit will run you 150 dollars or so.

If your dog or cat needs some type of surgery, then you are easily at 500 dollars plus.

SO… what can you do?

Keep your pets as healthy as possible by Preventing disease in the first place.

1. Feed a quality, gluten free, premium kibble – if you feed kibble. Avoid corn, and wheat as the first ingredient.

2. Ensure that your cats get at least 1/2 of their food as canned – the best way to prevent urinary tract disease.

3. Make some of your dog or cats food at home – see a sample recipe at the bottom of this post.

4. Try some Raw – Lewis (my dog) loves Raw food, and his teeth are cleaner as as result of eating it.

5. A quality, natural, complete Supplement.

Such as my new Ultimate Canine Health Formula, or Ultimate Feline Health Formula:


6. Vaccinate for less things less often.

Yes, vaccinate your puppies and kittens – but for a maximum of 2 boosters, and with ONLY the key components. Distemper, Parvovirus and Rabies for dogs, Herpes, Calici, Panleuk and Rabies for Cats.

Then a maximum of once every 3 years – you DON’T need yearly boosters. These may be doing more harm than good.

7. Take matters into your OWN hands.

Learn some basic healing techniques, and skills. Get the basics of treating your dog or cat at home for illness and injuries, and use safe and simple home remedies.

Such as a black tea bag for eye infections.

Acupressure for arthritis.

Green tea supplements for cancer.

Vitamin C for Urinary tract infections.

Arsenicum (a homeopathic remedy) for garbage gut.

Probiotics for vomiting/diarrhea/kidney disease/allergies.

To learn some of these you should start with my best-selling book – Veterinary Secrets Revealed – it’s at


At the very least download my free e-book.

And then do some of the things I advise –

Your pet, and your wallet, will thank me…

  1. Yes, I think it would be great! So many people like myself, want to do a good job for our pets in keeping them healthy but just can’t afford vet visits and don’t want to over expose them to more shots thsn they need. So I think it would be a great service to all.

  2. Hi Dr. Andrew,

    Yessssssssssssssssssssssss, I think you should absolutely do it. You’d be helping a tonne of people like myself that care about their pets. I’ve learned so much and I’m sure the people that are interest in doing better as a pet owner would watch and learn. Wishing YOU the best of success.

    Best Wishes

  3. Hello,
    The sample diet for cats that you gave, does not indicate how long to cook it for. Also for the sample diet for dogs… is the chicken or beef already cooked? Because it does not indicate putting it in a pot to cook. Thank you much.

  4. Great site…Thanks. But Tums contain sugar; and please, a warning about Zylotol sweetener: very deadly to all canines!

  5. re: “Daily Meal for Dogs”
    There is some confusion over what the cooked finished batch (the recipe) will yield in terms of the number of CUPS.
    (A) NOTE: It appears that there is to be only 2 cups yielded since the final note says to give 1 cup in the morning and 1 cup in the evening (for the total daily feeding to a 20lb dog). However, the rice being already cooked is already 2 cups in volume to which the vegetables and meat/poultry will be added. Won’t that yield MORE THAN 2 CUPS total?
    (B) NOTE: the instructions say to use 2 cups of cooked rice + 1 cup of vegetables (additional QUESTIONS: chopped or pureed? cooked or not? to yield how much after cooked? will the vegetables yield 1 cup raw or 1 cup cooked and in what shape?) + 1/3 pound of beef/chicken (additional QUESTION: raw or cooked?)

    (i) would powdered fresh cooked egg shells be a good substitute for the TUMS?
    (ii) if plain unsweetened yogurt is an appropriate substitute for the probiotic capsule, how much yogurt is equivalent to what the probiotic capsule would contain?

    THANK YOU FOR POSTING THE sample MEAL, though,it’s good to have a starting point–for both Q&A opportunities and for figuring out what is really good for our furry loved ones!
