You know how you hear about all of those perfect foods that can sustain human life because they contain every nutrient we need for health, like bee pollen or spirulina? Mmmm delicious.

If your dog has never smelled like corn chips then that probably sounds like a completely ridiculous question. She’s finally lost it. But I would bet my bottom dollar that at least half of you thought “YES! Why does my dog smell like corn chips?!”

I have to confess that I secretly kind of like it. My dog is at his most Read More

Why should I feed plants to my carnivore?

There are two important things to take away from this post. The first is the importance of giving your dog a bone. The second is the importance of thinking through your blog post titles. This is “part two,” because I already wrote a post with this title, despite the fact that it had little to nothing to do with giving your dog a bone. Lesson learned.

I have a confession to make.

I am really, acutely aware that “holistic canine nutrition,” as an industry, sounds like a load of wank. It’s up there with paleo, charging twenty dollars for a jar of fermented cabbage and anything with the word “bespoke” in front of it nowadays.
