Snacking and scavenging should be absolutely forbidden during the reducing period. However, since many obese dogs are accustomed to begging (and receiving) an occasional tidbit of raw vegetable (carrot, etc.) will add only roughage, vitamins and minerals, not appreciable calories.

* Dicalcium Phosphate Sources: Drug and health food stores; Substitute = Bone Meal (tested free of lead). This is an important supplement as it will balance the phosphorus and calcium ratios from lack of real bone with the red meat in the diet.

For keeping pets healthy the natural way, we recommend using Pet Remedy Charts, a Step-by-Step Holistic Home Healthcare System that will enable you to naturally treat your pet at home (without drugs) using safe, side effect free healing methods for
