Raw Food Feeding Trial Begun
We were surprised and pleased to learn that Dr. Amy Nesselrodt, a veterinarian in Pennsylvania, has begun a one year raw feeding trial with her own dogs.
The trial began earlier this year with a transition from kibble to a raw diet. Exam results, including blood tests, were performed at the start of the period. They will be repeated at 6 months and the end of the 12 month trial. Results will be posted on Dr. Nesselrodt’s blog. (Read More)
Antibiotics in Animal Feed Lawsuit Filed
A lawsuit has been filed against the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) to ban the use of antibiotics in livestock feed. A story in the Washington Post details this latest chapter in an ongoing controversy.
The lawsuit, filed by a group of organizations including the Union of Concerned Scientists, National Resources Defense Council, Center for Science in the Public Interest, Food Animals Concern Trust and Public Citizen, claims that the use of antibiotics in animal feed is contributing to antibiotic resistance in humans.

Films and Food
For the past few weeks we’ve been enjoying the Seattle International Film Festival, which runs through June 12
We have a special weakness for this Festival, and it has an uncanny tendency to include some very timely and touching animal related films. Just one of the sacrifices that must be made in the name of ongoing education!
We’ve had the opportunity to view two films that will be coming to the big screen within the next year which you may find interesting- Project Nim and Buck. Both were surprisingly engaging, and not necessary in expected ways. (Read more)
Whole Dog Journal now available
The Whole Dog Journal is now available at a discounted single copy price from Smiley Dog!
Have you been curious about Whole Dog Journal? Would you like to see more of the type of objective, advertising-free reviews and information it provides? Just ask to add an issue to your next delivery.
We’ve long been fans of The Whole Dog Journal, since they began publishing in 1998. WDJ articles are written by experts in the field, rather than marketing representatives. Because they accept no advertising, their articles are much more objective than you’ll find in other publications. They name names and don’t hold back when a product does not perform as advertised.
The June issue features articles on handling noise, dog park guidelines, homeowner insurance issues for pet owners, traveling with your dog and common causes of pet deaths (and how to avoid them). (Read more)

Answers Raw Goat’s Milk is now available for delivery!
While we’re not quite ready to deliver your milk just yet, we’re more than happy to fill the needs for your pet. Goat’s milk contains an ideal combination of nutrients in correct proportions, along with enzymes. It requires very little effort to digest and receive the benefits of these nutrients. This allows your pet’s organs to strengthen the immune system and detoxify the body, rather than working at digesting more inappropriate foods.
Goat’s milk can be used as a supplement with raw food, dehydrated, canned or kibble. Simply pour it over the meal and stand aside. When used with raw foods, goat’s milk will target and destroy “bad” bacteria which may be present while encouraging the growth of “good” bacteria. (Read More)
