Just like people, good health starts with good food for dogs too. Raw food diets are toted to be the oldest form of pet food. Why? Because they are the closest to what our dogs ancestors and those that live in the wild today eat. More and more people are becoming aware of the benefits of raw, natural foods in their diets and many dog owners are switching to raw diets as well, for a multitude of reasons.
There are some dogs that simply are not able to consume raw foods for various reasons. We therefore include select kibble and freeze dried foods in our product offering at The Wholesome Hound some of which are shown below. All these Canadian brands have received the highest rating of 5 stars on www.dogfoodadvisor.com :

My personal preference is for holistic and natural care and/or treatments whenever possible for yourself and your pet. I believe what Dr. Karen Becker, DVM says:
If a health condition can be resolved or well-managed with natural treatments that have no known side effects, why take risks with synthetic pharmaceuticals that almost certainly come with side effects?
Some of the differences between Holistic/Natural and Traditional care:
Traditional treatments are a necessary part of modern health care. Drugs and surgery have their place in situations where that is the only protocol. It is my belief however, that natural care should be the first option of choice with drugs and surgeries being secondary.
