How The Secret Ingredient Missing From Kibble Heals Your Dog

My dog means everything to meIs your dog itching, scratching possibly with red-hot looking skin?

There is a way to stop the problem without drugs and without changing what you’re feeding now, but first it’s important to know what’s gone wrong for your poor dog to be suffering like this and the link to kibble that’s being hidden from you.

The vast majority of dog owners visit the vet’s office, explain the symptoms and every single time, out come the steroids, antibiotics and the hard-sell about switching kibble brands to some expensive veterinary prescribed specialist grain free allergy pet food, which makes no real difference, just costs you more!

Is Grain Free Kibble The Answer?

Many dog owners seem to be trying out the grain free formulas lately to see if that makes any difference to their dogs suffering!

Does grain free kibble work?

The short answer is sadly, no. Why?

It’s true that grains and other starches have a detrimental impact on your dogs gut health by causing inflammation with yeast overgrowth and skin allergies the result you can actually see as your dog scratches away at seemingly endless new patches of skin that irritate them.

The Dog Skin Allergy Link between Kibble, Starch and Yeast You Don’t Get Told!

Meanwhile yeast is a fungus and it’s ever present on your dog’s body as part of the natural flora both inside and out. And when your dogs immune system (it’s internal health protection mechanism) gets over worked from too much starch in kibbles, it cannot stop the overgrowth of yeast in the hair follicles of your dogs skin which leads to an outbreak of itching.

So while you want to keep your dog off all those antibiotics and steroids because they cause harmful side effects, you know your dogs food has a lot to do with the problem, that’s why going grain free seems a good option.

A starch is a starch, whether it’s from kibbles containing grains like corn, wheat and rice or from grain free kibbles containing potatoes, peas or tapioca.

And that’s the problem, grain free or not, kibbles still contain high amounts of starch and it’s this starch that feeds the skin allergies and fuels the yeasty outbreaks which includes health problems like the following:

  • Gunky (yeasty) ear infections
  • Watery gunky eyes
  • Dry nose
  • Cracked foot pads
  • Dull smelly coat
  • Excessive shedding
  • Excessive paw licking
  • Hot Spots
  • Skin Mange outbreaks

So Why Not Make Kibble Starch Free?

Stinky dog kibbleKibbles cannot be made without starch. Not only is it cheap to supply but it’s crucial to bind the food together into one piece. Without starch, the kibble would just crumble and become powder by the time you bought the bag from the store.

And it doesn’t matter whether it’s full of different grains, grain free or an expensive allergy prescription diet; they are all full of starch.

So what can you do to stop your poor dogs itching? What are your options?

  1. Switch diet to a fresh whole raw food diet.
  2. Switch diet to a home cooked diet.
  3. Add some ‘perfect food value food supplements’ to what you already feed now.

So you’re probably thinking that option 1 and 2 are not what you want to do right now, maybe because of expense or time or convenience, but what’s option 3 all about?

  1. What is the best raw meat to buy? Packaged chicken or ground meat? Pre-made in the pet store refrigerator? Then can you add vegetables can those be cooked?

  2. A combination is good 2-3 choices ground and packaged and pre-made is fine. Yes, you can add part cooked veg and well crushed/mashed for better absorption as dogs cannot digest whole veg well.

  3. Hello Dan
    I have a Jack Russell that just turned 15yrs. young. Brady is having issues with putting on weight even though he is drinking water and enjoying Acana kibble which I’VE READ WAS RECOMMENED by you on YouTube. His vet put him on Hill’s prescription diet (canned food to see if it would help. At present he weighs 12lbs. and had blood work done and the vet can’t seem to find anything as everything seems normal. The only thing the vet said is he may have pancreatitis issues. His stools look good and no issues there but at times if he has too much to eat then he will vomit.
    AT THIS POINT I really don’t know what to do for him to gain weight, I just ordered Enzyme Miracle (another product you recommend, and I have started him on that 2 days ago. Is there anything I can do for him to start gaining weight?
    I would appreciate any suggestions you may have.
    Thank you,

  4. Hi Patrick, sure I answered this on YT with some ideas? Here’s my YT response: Your doing great, have to say that. I’d cut the kibble/canned portion of the meal in half and replace with fresh foods such as the eggs, sardines, part cooked and blended veggies and some meat proteins like chicken, beef or lamb.
    The calories in pet food are whats called hollow calories, meaning they do not carry wholefood nutrition, it’s more carbs based calories which are not so filling, dont last long and don’t leave the dog satisfied enough, so he continually wants more. When do as I stated above, he’ll feel better and fuller and more satisfied. To increase weight, add 10% extra each day for the month and if he has not incresed weight, add another 10% the next month and so on..
    Check his stools that doesnt have worms too. I have a natural solution for that too. Don’t use vet drugs or vaccines! Keep him clean of this.
    If you want to swap from Acan to Ketona when the bag is finished, that’s an even better kibble as it’s only 5% carbs. Meaning, more of the food goes to putting on weight. The enzyme miracle will help the digestion process be more efficient. Fresh food additions is your next step Patrick.
