Family concerns over eating healthier diets have grown to include all members of the family, including fur kids and companion pets. While many commercial products are fine when combined with natural foods, those made primarily from cornmeal, bone meal and animal by-products can be hard on sensitive digestive systems and lack much needed nutrients.

As a result, Dr. Harvey’s (manufacturer of fine all-natural health foods, treats, herbal supplements and herbal grooming essentials for companion animals) has announced the addition of Oracle Tripe to their existing line of freeze-dried foods for dogs and cats. Raw green tripe is made with USDA meat, nutritious dehydrated vegetables and filled with natural vitamins and minerals, is a “very high quality protein with an abundance of amino acids, omega 3’s, omega 6’s, enzymes and vitamins essential for every dog’s diet, and is especially helpful for those suffering from chronic renal chronic kidney problems such as renal failure, and digestive issues due to its low phosphorus levels and palatability, ” according to a company president Wendy Shankin Cohen. “Tripe is also very helpful for dogs with allergies and digestive problems and is a great food for keeping all dogs at the peak of health.”

While chronic renal failure is most common in dogs over 7 years old, breeds found to be most susceptible include: cocker spaniels, Shih Tzus, Lhasa apsos, Doberman pinschers, German shepherds, golden retrievers, Samoyeds, cairn terriers, Norwegian elkhounds and bull terriers, as well as soft-coated wheaten terriers.
Shankin Cohen also emphasized that “all of Dr. Harvey’s products, including Oracle Tripe, are made and packaged in the USA, contain no chemicals or preservatives, sugar, salt, or dyes, and “ comes in a Grain-Free option.”
Dr. Harvey’s Healthy Formulations are also available for cats, horses and birds, and are “based on more than 30 years.” For more information of research makes fine health food & safe all-natural care products for companion animals visit http://www.drharveys.com.

Note: Pet owners with dogs suffering from renal kidney failure, as well as any of the other disorders mentioned above should speak to their vets before making any dietary changes or beginning alternative treatments.
