    Quick question. I have ground flax seed but not oil. Is that ok? It's almost impossible to get any sort of natural ingredients. Even just finding brown rice, I've scoured Honduras looking for it and came up empty. I would really like to supplement Kobe's homemade food but can only get human type of vitamins here. Any suggestions about that?

    A Herbal blend that is a great natural all-purpose skin and coat supplement.
    Equal parts of dried Burdock {Arctium lappa} root, Cleavers {Gallium aparine}, Dandelion {Taraxacum officinalis}, garlic {Allium sativum}, Kelp-Bladderwrack {Fucus vesiculosus} , wheeeeewww, that was a mouthful,:), Horsetail {Equisetum arvense}, and Nettle {Urtica dioica}. Grind the ingredients well in a spice or coffee grinder. Add 1/4 tsp. per 10 pounds of body weight to food every day.

    Another natural supplement is..................fresh air, sunshine, rain, mud, dirt, more rain, roll in dirt, run and bark, and just have a fun time outdoors!
    Gotta love Mother Nature, given time and she will heal ALL!:)

    DLS you made me laugh! :) What a great supplement... to be a happy dog!

    I feed my boy raw and add fish oil and vit C. He should get all supplements from his food. Is that right?

    I like to add a vitamin E capsule daily. This goes along way towards heart health and has many positive attributes. You can get the 400iu caps at walmart or health food store. I also occasionally crush up eggshells which is a great source of calcium.
