    How to choose the right vitamins for your dog

    By Dr. Peter Dobias, DVM

    Dr. Peter Dobias, DVM has 30 years of experience as a veterinarian. His love of dogs and passion for natural healing and nutrition led him to writing, teaching and helping people create health naturally, without drugs, chemicals and processed food.

    I recently visited my friend who is very conscientious about her health, an avid yoga practitioner and is a keen learner.

    My friend also understands that supplementing her diet with supplements and nutrients (she has many different jars and bottle on the kitchen counter) is important, but there is one problem… She doesn’t know the difference between vitamins and “vitamins.”

    Nature is one big cycle of healing

    No matter what disease needs to be healed, it takes the body through what I call The Healing Cycle

    It is so strikingly simple that people often doubt it will work. In most cases, it works beautifully. It is composed of three simple steps - DETOX - NOURISH - ALIGN (harmonize the energy of the body and spine).

    Detox is a process where we get rid of what shouldn't be in the body. In practical terms, dogs and humans benefit greatly from a liver cleanse or the use of substances such as chlorophyll that cleanses the blood, removes heavy metals and helps purify the digestive tract.

    Most people get this first step no problem, but when it comes to the second step - providing the missing nutrients - it is a very different story. 

    The most amazing “machine”

    One of the most fascinating parts of medicine is learning about the body. The design is pretty close to perfect and so is the 'manufacturing.'  It starts from two cells merging, then it grows. The cells know exactly how to divide and differentiate, the heart knows how to beat, the liver knows how to manufacture proteins and work with fat and sugars, the digestive tract knows how to digest…

    The most fascinating and incredible part of all this is that it all happens on its own! There are no heart supervisors, stomach managers and digestive tract housekeepers. The body is completely automated and the perfection blows my mind.

    Yes, food is another miracle - the cycle of nutrition is kind of incredible. Everything the body needs comes from food. If we didn’t mess up our food chains and deplete our soils it would continue to be like this forever.

    The difference between vitamins and “vitamins”

    Only a relatively short time ago, our species started to learn about how important some vitamins and minerals are to human and animal health. We know lack of vitamin B causes neurological disorders and lack of vitamin C causes scurvy. Without proper electrolyte balance the heartbeat may stop and without calcium, bones would be deformed and weak and the muscles would not contract.

    Naturally, some people saw this as an opportunity to help others and correct the deficiencies by producing vitamins and nutrients artificially from ingredients such as coal and crude oil. Yes, you are reading right. Vitamins are made from toxic black greasy slime called crude.

    I can already hear you asking:  “How is this possible? We can’t grow food from crude oil?”  

    Yes, some artificial vitamins may even prevent some of the disease symptoms, but are nowhere close to 'real deal vitamins.' These chemicals are the equivalent of a fake apple and the body knows the difference. 

    When we look at real food - let's say an apple. Biochemically it is so complex that as of now, the only way to grow a real apple is to let nature do it. There is no lab in the world that can put together a real apple from crude and coal! That is exactly why the only real vitamins must be food based.

    When I learned this, I started to search for supplements that were whole food and natural. I could find some in the human industry, such as Garden of Life and New Chapter, but when I tried to find a whole food mineral or vitamin supplement for dogs where the amounts of different vitamins were quantified, I found nothing. 

    Originally, I had no intention getting into making supplements but when I saw this gap, I didn’t have a choice. Not having these formulas would be a SERIOUS OBSTRUCTION to helping my patients and this is how SoulFoodGreenMinGutSense and FeelGood Omega were born.

    Now, we can get back to the shelf of my friend. The twenty plus supplements may be better than nothing, but I can bet if I got a chance to run a HairQ Test on her hair there would be serious imbalances. The same applies to dogs given artificial vitamins and processed food. The body is built to run on food, not chemicals made from coal. It may survive but will never reach the maximum potential. 

    The irony of all this is that for many decades, we humans have tried to reinvent the wheel of food production when the original one is perfect! Chemicals can be patented, but they will never replace food. That is why the best supplements out there are made by nature.
