You have, no doubt, heard us rave about Dr. Harvey’s dog food at least once over the past couple of years.

Introducing Nala – A Dr. Harvey’s Testimonial
Nala’s Mom had also expressed interest in preparing homemade meals for her, but wanted to make sure that all of Nala’s nutritional needs were met. She was very excited to try out Dr. Harvey’s – and see what impact it would have on Nala’s health.
What was Nala Eating before her trial of Dr. Harvey’s?
Nala was eating a grain free kibble with a homemade topper (usually ground turkey, or a blend of veggies and oatmeal).
How Long has Nala been Eating Dr. Harvey’s?
What forms of feeding Dr. Harvey’s have you tried?
Was preparing homemade meals as difficult as you thought?
Do you have any tips or tricks to make the meal prep easier?
When I used veg to bowl making large batches worked best and I even froze some so that is would just need to be thawed overnight and be ready for the next day. Nala is small so I froze the already prepared food to make sure it wasn’t in the fridge too long. Freezing didn’t seem to harm the consistency of the food. I also added Canned Sardines (no salt added) into some batches to mix things up for Nala and it adds some more Omega 3 fatty acids to the food.
How would you now describe Nala’s overall health?
Since eating Dr. Harvey’s Nala has had more energy and is now able to keep up with her younger fur sibling, Cody. She acts like the younger dog and encourages Cody to play, which is great to see since she is 6 and Cody is 1. She is also much more muscular, that is probably a combo of food and a new playmate in Cody. I find that she is a lot less itchy and her coat is more shiny which is something that I was hoping for since she has always been an itchy pup. She also is very enthusiastic for dinner time.

The Dr. Harvey’s Difference
As you can see, Dr. Harvey’s was a big hit with Nala, and her Mom reports that she is doing better than ever. We wanted to quickly relate a few of her comments with our own experiences to show you how closely they align.
Nala’s improved higher energy levels correspond directly to what we have seen in our own dogs as well. Harley has more energy than he has had in years (as a 10 year old!) and it is so satisfying to see that new pep in his step. Even after his daily walk he is routinely whining in the evenings hoping to play some more!
Both of our boys are also significantly less itchy after making the switch to Dr. Harvey’s. They used to each suffer from at least 1 or 2 skin infections on their belly every Summer, but we have been able to avoid these issues all but one time over the past 2 years.
