If you have a dog or a cat in your household, you’re not going to want to miss this week’s episode. Our guest is Naturopathic Doctor John Taylor and we discuss how our dogs and cats by nature are raw food animals and how commercially prepared, cooked pet foods, like kibble, or canned food, are missing several critical ingredients causing many health issues. He is also a certified nutritional counselor, has worked in the nutritional supplement industry for the last twenty years and has been working with animals for over twenty-five years. As an animal lover, he believes there are some very simple things we can do to improve our pets’ lives.
Does your pet show signs of less-than-optimal digestive health, such as abdominal discomfort and gas, bad breath or vomiting? The kind of gas or bad breath that will clear a room? How about joint pain, causing severe discomfort? Especially in older pets. What about food sensitivities? Low energy and overall less-than-ideal health? You probably wouldn’t suspect these issues to be connected with poor digestion, tied to what we are feeding our pets would you? Dr. Tayler dive and I dive into a possible solution that may help with all of these complaints and much more. More specifically, we discuss how using certain enzymes may drastically improve your pet’s digestion and absorption of nutrients and contribute considerably to our pet’s well-being.
Thank you for joining us once again this week and please enjoy!
If you’re a dog or a cat owner and you want them healthier, you want them happier, you want them to be around your family longer than you’re not going to want to miss this next episode, you’re first going to learn what is going on within the pet food industry. And quite frankly, you’re going to be appalled. But here’s the good news, you’re also going to learn that there are in fact, all natural things that you can do to improve their lives naturally. So if that’s you, if you want your pets to thrive, if you want them around your family longer, and you want them happier, and healthier, then you’re not going to want to miss this next edition of The Alden Report, pet edition.
The Alden Report Intro 0:46
All right. For me, success is continuing to fulfill my potential. So it’s always something I’m looking toward not something I’ve achieved. Mike I didn’t create this. It’s all natural comes from the earth. God created it. To me success is doing something that you love to do that allows you to be of service to others. And it gives you a sense of fulfillment in your heart. So what’s happening to men today, they’re overworked. They’re overstressed. And at the same time, they’re lowering their hormonal profile, whatever you want to call it. Men are slowing down sexually. Success is being able to have the control of your day to day of your life of having a freedom, financial independence, if you’re doing it on your own schedule that’s success. This is the Alden Report!
All right. Well, my name is Michael Alden. We are here in studios. And again, I always talk about how excited I am to have my guests. My next guest claims that our dogs and cats by nature are raw food animals and commercially prepared cooked pet foods like kibble or canned food are missing several critical ingredients, causing many health issues, I guess is a naturopathic doctor, he’s also a certified nutritional counselor. And he’s worked in the nutritional supplement industry for the last 20 years. And more specifically, he’s been working with animals for over 25 years. As an animal lover, he believes there are some very simple things we can do to improve our pets lives. So again, if you have a cat or a dog and household, and you want them to live a happier, healthier life, then you’re not going to want to miss this show. Please help me welcome dr. John Taylor. Dr. Taylor. Thanks for being my guest.
Dr. Taylor 2:25
Hey, Mike. Thanks for having me.
So tell us a little bit about your background, how you got involved in the world of health and nutrition, but more specifically with our pets, because it’s a pretty interesting story.
Dr. Taylor 2:34
Well, I’ve been doing enzymes, nutrition and vitamins for humans for over 20 years. And even though I’ve always had dogs, I’ve never had a necessity to really look into their health that much. The last dog we got about almost 15 years ago now was the runt of the litter. Okay, oh, she didn’t have any defects. She wasn’t disease, but she wasn’t really thriving. Okay, low energy, coat didn’t look that great. And my wife and I said, Well, we know what to do. We’re going to give her some enzymes and probiotics from our people line. Not very convenient. You gotta open the capitals up and try to measure it and pour it in a bowl. But in three months, she was just like a new dog
Because that was your specialty in the in the human world was was enzymes, right?
Dr. Taylor 3:11
Enzymes, digestion, gut health, etc.
So let’s just get into what is an enzyme and why is it important to not only our health but I guess really our pets health.
Dr. Taylor 3:19
Nothing happens in life without an enzyme doing it. It’s a catalyst that actually makes a change happen. With food, the way it works is every food on the planet in its raw state has an enzyme in it, which will digest it, break it down and activate it so it does what it is supposed to do, so without that enzyme, nothing’s gonna happen. So dogs are raw food animals, when they go catch a squirrel in the forest, they’re not going to have a barbecue and cook the squirrel. They’re gonna eat raw squirrel and the squirrel meat raw is gonna have all the enzymes to digest that meat. So it benefits the dog without anything having to be done by the dog. Okay, you take that same meat and you cook it you kill all the enzymes. Now the protein is still there, but there’s no way for it to break down. Now the whole burden of digestion has shifted over the dog and it’s organs they’re not prepared to do the complete digestion job. So consequently you get halfway digestion and a lot of things that caused inflammation that caused the stool to be not as healthy so a lot of consequences to having an improper diet for that animal.
So I’m guessing it like you said the inflammation but it must tax like almost all their organs their their kidneys, or liver or their their heart, right?
Dr. Taylor 4:27
It does. You and I have felt this ourselves. If you got up in the morning and had a bowl of fresh raw fruit. Go out and have go for a run. No problem. That same bowl, you fill it with sausage, pancakes and hashbrowns all cooked. You’re not going to want to go for a jog. You’re gonna sit there and buckle that belt. Oh, man, I just can’t move. The enzymes in the fresh raw fruit facilitate quick digestion, easy nutritional delivery, and you’re not burdened down? So when you feed a dog raw food, they’re not lazy and sleepy and trying to trying to roll over take a nap because they’re going to get the nutrition readily and they’re going to actually have a bit
So so so is it your opinion, then I guess that the foods that we’re giving our dogs and cats is just really not beneficial to them? Or is it half beneficial? Or what’s the story?
Dr. Taylor 5:10
There’s a gambit of foods on the market day from the good, the bad and the ugly, Highline foods are something I wouldn’t feed any animal, but they are all basically cooked and processed food. So first thing you want to do is pick a food that is the best one that you can afford for your dog. And not everyone is going to match up every dog’s health. The next most important thing to do is to do a digestive enzymes, so that food will break down, digest and benefit the animal.
So you know, again, you said the good, the bad, and the ugly. What, give me an example of the good and give me an example, I guess, of the ugly.
Dr. Taylor 5:42
Some of the some of the worst foods out there in the market, are corn based corn will be the number one ingredient. Corn is kind of a known allergen for pets. It doesn’t do good with their coat, they get itchy, they get hot spots.
But isn’t it almost like everything they that they given to dogs and cats right?
Dr. Taylor 5:57
Corn is being used tremendously. It is in our own diet, we’re eating a lot of corn based foods. But dogs and cats, it’s just not a good idea. So you want to pick a food that’s going to have meats as the number one ingredient What meat is good for the dog, some dogs do go and chicken some better on beef. Some have to do exotic meats like kangaroo because they got overfed chicken, and they have an allergy to it. But all of these allergies can be kind of mitigated a little bit when you digest that food, when you don’t digest that you have a bigger problem,
if you have a dog or cat in there, and they’re getting this food. And some people might think again, they’re feeding them, they’re the best of the high end food, no matter what, they’re not able to really fully benefit from the nutritional aspect of the food that they’re eating right,
Dr. Taylor 6:35
RIght, their bodies are not set up to take a cooked food and process it completely down to the digestive where they need to run the body. They’re designed to eat raw food, which is going to self digest, and then the enzymes being produced by the dog’s pancreas are there to finish off the process. Not started from start to finish
As you’re talking, the more I think about it again, we love our dogs and our cats and I have you know, two cats and two dogs and I’ve had dogs throughout my life and and you are you know, everyone always has, you know, really the best interest of the of the animal and you want to give them the best stuff. But really, even if you’re buying them the high end stuff, it’s really it’s not helping them It could even potentially be hurting them, right?
Dr. Taylor 7:13
Yes, I’ve had owners call me that said you know I have my dog on a good dog food. And I thought you know, I’m gonna splurge I’m gonna go to the most expensive one I can get which is a higher meat and higher content. He didn’t do as well on it. What was up with that it was a better food. I go well, sometimes the better food is more concentrated with the meat. If they can’t digest the medium grade food, they’re gonna have less of a time digesting the high quality food. Right? Again, it comes back to digestion. When I first looked at the market, and I saw products on the market with four enzymes. I thought, well, that’s kind of crazy. I mean, it takes five enzymes to digest rice. Okay, that’s just one ingredient rice and lamb chicken and rice. Well, there’s five minutes to take just just right, just rice.
And rice. And rice also is something that is in almost every dog or cat fooe right?
Dr. Taylor 7:56
It’s very common. So how’s it four enzyme product going to be able to do this? So what I did is I analyzed hundreds of dog foods, I want to know every ingredient. I wanted to know the ratios and amounts. I did a lot of calculations and scientific studies on what it would take to digest this. Then I matched up an enzyme to every single food substrate. Now substrate means protein, fat, carbohydrate. We’re not talking about beef, chicken, rice and vegetables. But the substrate is the base thing we’re trying to digest. It takes one enzyme to digest each one of those. You can’t do four enzymes and digest them in a dog food. Okay, so I came with a lot of study a lot of research the blend of 14 enzymes. These 14 enzymes will actually digest any commercially produced pet food that you want to give your dog.
I’m thinking about that that rice and it takes five enzymes, you said to to to properly digest the rice. And a lot of these products that are out there only have four so they can’t even they cannot even really work it. What happens to that piece of rice is the dog or cat, are they getting any benefit from it or what you know what’s happening?
Dr. Taylor 8:56
If a food does not digest, there’s two things are going to happen. If it’s a carbohydrate or sugar, it’s going to ferment. Fermentation is going to cause gas, okay, bloating and some things sometimes that’ll clear out the room, right? If it’s protein doesn’t digest, it’s going to putrefy Okay, putrefaction is different than rotting, it’s a little bit different than than fermenting. So those produce problems for the body, they’re they produce toxins, toxins, they can toxify the body, they can stress out the liver, they can also increase inflammation, and you’ll have a systemic inflammatory response going on, which can cause them higher uric acid levels, this can deteriorate the bones, then the joints will start getting weaker. And over time of eating this cooked food diet with no help of enzymes, you’re actually deteriorating your animal’s health. And then there’s just you know, the long term you’re looking at big vet bills,
I keep going back to that rice and I think about what we you know, we all love our dogs and our cats and we really want to give them the best stuff. And you know, some people might think that you know, like, given our dog or cat rice isn’t really bad, but it really it actually could really again, it could hurt them and they’re not getting the right stuff. It’s taxing the liver taxing the kidneys, and then you said it could potentially become toxic?
Dr. Taylor 10:08
Exactly. If it doesn’t digest the body has to exhibit or exude resources and issues to get it cleaned out.
Why aren’t, you know, dog foods and cat foods putting pricesautomatically in their food? Why don’t they just put it in?
Dr. Taylor 10:24
Well, when you bake the kibble you kill them all. Again, remember, temperature, it’s not even hot temperature really, at 118 degrees, every enzyme is dead. They start dying at you know, 89, 90, 100 degrees, by the time hits 118. They’re all gone. We boil an eggat 212 that’s not even hot cooking we do hotter temperature cooking. So when they’re when they’re baking kibble and they’re producing it, if they were to spray on enzymes at the end, then they’re gonna throw it into a into a paper bag, put it on pallets and hot trucks and they’re not going to handle it well. And by the time it gets to, you’re not gonna have any enzymes left.
Dr. Taylor 10:56
The best and most efficient way to do it is to add the enzyme right at the time of feeding.
You know, give us some examples of or symptoms that we should be looking for as a pet owner, and that says, hey, you know what, my dog or my cat is just really not, you know, digesting properly or not getting the nutrients that they need.
Dr. Taylor 11:13
It’s funny, I’ve had showed dog people I’ve talked about this before. They’re like, Oh, my dog digests fine. Which they mean that goes in the front comes out of the back. They’re not really see what’s going on with the dog. But the some of the signs are going to be the, the lackluster and the coat or they’re going to have rashes on the skin are going to have itching spots, or they’re gonna have their eyes are not quite as sparkly or whatever. They’re low energy, they want to lay around or they don’t want to get up and run. Or sometimes they’ll have, you know, giant stools because it’s not digesting it’s just kind of capacity to the body.
Going right through.
Dr. Taylor 11:44
I had an employee got a brand new dog. The dog came with food. Here’s one to feed the dog, here’s your dog, took it home fed the dog and the kibble was kind of gold colored nuggets. Next day picked up in the yard, gold colored nuggets, it didn’t hardly even change. And he was new to me. He was new to me. I said, Look, you got to use enzymes. So he goes ok he took them home, put the enzymes on there the next day, he comes and goes the poops brown now. I go yes. It’s digesting finally. You know, you don’t just run through the dog that doesn’t do any good. Sure. Well, I had that one professional kennel. That was a Bouvier breeder now the Bouvier is the big black Kirti dog. And she says, you know, she at any one time, maybe nine to 12 dogs. Every year, she said I had to have a vet come to the kennel and give my allergy shots because they are all getting the seasonal allergies. So she put them on the digestive enzymes. And she says the allergy season came along. They were all fine.
Dogs get allergies, like just like us?
Dr. Taylor 12:38
Just like Yes. And so she was so impressed. She wrote me a letter and she said I have not done allergy shots for all of my dogs this year, because the only thing I changed was I put those enzymes on there.
So and so what happens is now is that because they’re able to get the nutrients and now that does it make their immune system stronger? Is that what’s going on or?
Dr. Taylor 12:56
It does help the immune system, but the mechanism going on that’s most accurately analyzes this, there are two kinds of enzymes by their systemic enzymes that run our body. They are also responsible for taking allergens that pop into our nose or in our eyes or into our lungs, find them and break them down and digest them eliminate them. Well, when you start taking cooked food and give it to a raw food animal, they are now robbing from that system to digest the daily food. By the time that allergen comes along to them, they got nothing left to fight it. You think about dogs, and we go walk around the forest, we get up our nose or whatever. Dogs are walking on their feet, right? They’re picking up tree pollen, grass pollen, all kinds of things. They come and they lick their paws. They’re ingesting it. Then they’ll scratch their ears, they’ll inoculate their ears, so they’ll get ear problems, they get allergy problems, systemic allergy problems,
All this is really it can can be tied to the fact that they’re just they’re not able to properly absorb and digest the nutrients.
Dr. Taylor 13:55
Right. So if you’re giving the enzymes in their food that’s going to digest the food, right, which means the enzymes will take care of allergies are untouched, they can do their job s dog eparately.
So if someone has a dog that maybe suffers with some sort of allergy like my I had a dog that no matter what we gave her, she always got a rash on her belly for I’m not really sure what what would cause that. But if she was able to, you know, try to think maybe that rash might have been a non issue.
Dr. Taylor 14:20
Yeah, there’s two kinds of rashes that it could either have been it could have been a food allergy or or a, an organic environmental allergy. She could go out and lay in the yard and get grass pollen on her stomach. She could be eating a protein like maybe chicken or turkey or lamb. I don’t know what it could have been. If she doesn’t digest that protein well, it’s going to go in the system and cause an inflammatory response. e, And you can get an allergy from it.
Folks, if you’ve been listening, you know, and you’re like me and you love dogs and you love cats and you love pets. You know, they’re your family members. They’re my family members. I like to call them my furry family members try and say that 10 times fast. It’s really difficult to do but it but if you want them to be healthy and if you want them to stick longer and you don’t want them to experience, you know, the bloating that Dr. Taylor talked about, or the rashes or the inflammation or the joint discomfort, you know. And again, you just want them to thrive, you want them to stick around longer, just like you would your human family members. And go ahead and text PET to 978-999-3113. Again, text PET, that’s PET to 978-999-3113, pick up John’s enzymatic formula, put it on their food and try it for 30 days, Here’s the thing that we’ve actually worked out with, with Dr. Taylor, you can try the product for 30 days, if it doesn’t work for your dog or for your cat or both, you can just go ahead and return the product. So this is truly like a risk free offer. Here’s the other thing I will just want to tell you, I’ve been giving this formula to my dogs and my cats and I’ve been giving it to my friends and their dogs and cats for a very long time. And it is remarkable, what you’ll see can happen for them, you’re going to see them thrive, you’re going to see them, you know, almost like coming back to life. And I have a friend who’s got an older dog and gave it to the dog and and it’s like Mike it gave him years, extra years of life It feels like it’s like it’s like the dog has been reborn. It’s really, really remarkable. What happens again, this, what we’re talking about is we’re talking about what Mother nature intended. You know, you know, I was a believer, obviously before we had Dr. Taylor on the podcast. But then when I actually saw it happen, it’s unbelievable. And again, you can try it risk free, we’ve also reduced the pricing significantly, basically at a wholesale pricing. So go ahead and text, PET to 978-999-3113. Let’s talk about our cats for a second. Because I think we spend a lot of time with dogs. I have a couple of cats. I happen to love cats, and some people love them hate them, but I think they’re great. Um, does this also work for cats and what a cats gonna notice,
Dr. Taylor 16:58
Cats are going to need this for the same reason. But it will work equally well for them. Because this is going to work on the food. We’re not trying to give a drug to an animal to have it affect the body, we’re trying to affect their diet, right. So cancer eating a similar type foods. Now the profile is a little bit different, because they’re going to have a little bit higher protein, they’re not going to have the veggies in there like a dog can handle. But they’re gonna have a primary protein diet. So this is going to go in and digest that protein and let it go into the cat system. Now cats are susceptible to some problems from poor digestion. They don’t digest proteins, well, they’re more susceptible to stones, kidney problems. And this is not a cure for those problems.
What about furballs?
Dr. Taylor 17:40
Yes, actually furballs the incidence goes down a lot. Because there are enzymes in the cat’s body, they’re designed to digest that food. They bath themselves by licking themselves. That’s just a fact of life. Well, if you’re stealing all their enzymes to digest their food, those enzymes are now being robbed from that system. Now the hairballs there, there’s no enzymes left. And that’s where they’re gonna have a problem.
Now, can it work for any type of breed of cat or dog? And is there one particular breed that maybe you found that has benefits more so than others?
Dr. Taylor 18:10
No, the breeds will have different benefits. You might have a Great Dane, it’s all of a sudden will muscle up because they want to be a muscular dog. And they’ve got to convert that food, that protein into amino acids to build the muscle, okay. But you might find a long haired dog that it really needs to have those fats and that food digest to the fatty acids, and that will make the coat and the fur just glossy and silky and shiny.
I wad just telling you earlier in the greenroom that I recently adopted two puppies. We think they’re jack Russells, and they look like jack Russells. But anyway, when should we start giving this to puppies or is there a time when we should stop?
Dr. Taylor 18:48
Yes, from their first meal that’s not mother’s milk. Mother’s Milk is very complex food. Full of enzymes. It’s raw food. And they do great they start thriving. It’s their first food in the life. We switch them from that to 100% cooked diet in one fell swoop. It’s a shock to the system.
Oh I bet.
Dr. Taylor 19:05
Some puppies don’t do as well right then they kind of faltered a little bit. Some of them just go through it and plow through it. And the side effects show up later in life. But as soon as they’re eating any kind of a kibble or any kind of a canned or any kind of a cooked food or even a royal roll food that should be in the food right away.
Is it all natural?
Dr. Taylor 19:22
Yes, these enzymes are grown through fermentation processes, or they’re harvested from plants that are 100% natural. Now, I would caution people looking at enzyme comparisons. There are enzymes in the market that are animal based enzymes that I’m dead set against, okay, they actually go to slaughterhouses. They take the cadavers and take out the organs and they juice those organs, then they take the product and they make it concentrated. It’s very medieval. Do you don’t have to go to this old medieval style.
That sounds disgusting.
Dr. Taylor 19:52
But now we can do it with all vegetarian enzymes. They work more efficiently. They’re more effective. They work in a broader pH ranges. So It’s easy, there’s no, there’s no downside to this with the pancreatic enzymes, that’s what they look forward to avoid. Pancreatic, pancreatic enzymes, you can overdose
Dr. Taylor 20:10
You could actually have bleeding gums, and you can have irritation of the throat. It’s never designed to be eaten. These are food type enzymes that are found in all raw foods. The body knows what they are, and they welcome them in. They said, Great, we’re glad you’re here, come over do this job for us.
So there are enzymes that are on the market now that are in some other supplements that people might be buying that that, again, they think they might be doing something good for their pet, but it’s it they’re like compounding and making it even worse.
Dr. Taylor 20:35
Exactly. pancreatic enzymes that stuff even get on the market. Well, it’s old technology.
Dr. Taylor 20:40
We all we have was the old research on on doing the juice cadaver organ. But now we can do it with all vegetarian enzymes, they work more efficiently and they’re safe.
Now I’d mentioned different breeds, you know, you starting to see a lot of this now I had a big dog before pain, you know, we talked earlier is that you don’t necessarily the dogs and cats, they don’t really talk to us. But you can kind of tell does this help with pain? Because again, I think it’s becoming a more of an issue these days.
Dr. Taylor 21:06
It is in it’s due to the diet, and I’m not saying the quality of the food so much, it could be a bit of the lower the quality of the food, but the fact that food is cooked and processed, the fact that there are no enzymes in food, what it’s doing is it’s causing the protein to not digest completely. When that happens, you’re going to get a higher uric acid level. The uric acid level will can actually deteriorate the bones, okay, can actually make the joints and the cartilage deteriorate faster. And that’s where you’re going to set up problems for the future for arthritis or osteoarthritis wear and tear arthritis. And you’re setting up for problems in the future.
So you had mentioned I think earlier that there’s there’s a specific enzyme that that is designed to help with pain?
Dr. Taylor 21:46
Exactly, it’s not a pain killer, but it’s a super good systemic enzyme. It’s called bromelain. now the bromelain, comes from pineapples. Bromelain is considered proteolytic, which means it will digest protein. But the other four ends and I have in here to digest protein are faster, and they work better. So what happens is, they all go in together, the first four enzymes that digest protein will do the food. And by the time Bromelain kind of wakes up to come to the party, there was nothing left me for me to do, I guess I’ll just go out the bloodstream, see what I can find. So it will go out systemically, it’s kind of been spared the burden of doing the food digestion, now can go out into the body and hunt down inflammatory tissue, or protein is leaked into the bloodstream kind of leaky gut syndrome. When the particles get smal enough to get in the bloodstream, but they’re not really amino acids yet. That’s what causes inflammation. That’s what can cause problems. The Bromelain will cut them down, find them, break them down into amino acids, and turn that protein sludge into a positive.
So that will essentially reduce inflammation, which will ultimately reduce pain.
Dr. Taylor 22:45
That’s pretty, pretty interesting. The other thing you had mentioned time a second ago. How quickly does it work? Is it different for the size of the animal or the or a cat or dog? When when does someone really notice the benefits?
Dr. Taylor 22:59
In doing this for many years, I’ve had clients call me back and said, Look, it’s only been one week and I cannot believe the difference in my dog. Other people say hey, how’s it been going it’s been about a month. No nothing really get my dog didn’t have any problems. But then two months later, they’re gone. I can’t believe it. My dogs coats better now, right it ever has been before. So when you start doing this, it’s like powering up the pet food, you’re actually going to power up his diet. And that might affect them in a short time as a week. It might be a couple of weeks might be a month, but you are going to see from the first day you’re gonna be making progress.
I mean, regardless if like you mentioned earlier, they can only benefit your pet no matter what right? Exactly.
Dr. Taylor 23:34
better digestion is only going to raise the nutritional density of the of the animal. So they’re eating, they’re not digesting it well, but they’re living right. This will digest it 100% completely every mineral, every vitamin, every beneficial ingredient that food is not going to benefit the host.
You know, Dr. Taylor, in a minute, I want to ask you. Well, I want you to tell the story about the police dog because I think it’s such a great story.
Dr. Taylor 23:57
We had approached an officer that had an active service dog. And of course this was a Belgian Malinois, which is a trained athlete. These are just really trained dogs. He’s like an athlete. I go, look, this would really help.
Do they look like German Shepherds or no?
Dr. Taylor 24:11
Semilar. Very similar. And this will streamline your dog’s digestion will improve his nutrition, you’ll get better energy, longer endurance, there are lots of benefits for an active working service dog. He goes great love to try it. He understood the principle. So I saw him in about a month I said, well, how’s your dog doing? Well, I didn’t see much changes, but he does have more energy now. He actually we use these trials once a month or we run them real hard on our weekend. We do training but it used to be like by three o’clock. He was kind of you know, patently kind of out of energy. Now five o’clock. He’s still jumping as high. So he was really impressed with that. I talked to him about another month later, I go now how’s your dog doing. He goes, Well, you know, my dog had no issues. I can’t believe his coat is actually better now. I didn’t think it could be any better than it was but his code is now more lustrous, more shiny. It just feels softer. It’s amazing. He goes but that’s not really the big story. And I said, well, what’s the big story? He goes, Well, I’ve got a retired police dog that lives in my house. He’s got bad knees. He’s been jumping out of apartment buildings and jumping through car windows and catching burglars. A little bit too old to do surgery on. So we just said we’re putting him out to pasture we’re going to treat him like a house pet. And make sure he’s comfortable. Well, I started with the the enzymes at the same time with my active service dog. And now it’s been two months, he’s running around the backyard playing with my active service dogs, like he’s a puppy again, he’s out of pain.
Such a great story.
Dr. Taylor 25:32
So I’m just really, really happy and we will give the quality of life of that dog has just increased tremendously.
You’d mentioned. You hear these stories all the time. Right? And isn’t that kind of what you’re saying, This is why you do this, right?
Dr. Taylor 25:42
I do. You know, when I when I help a human, I feel good sure because but they can take responsibility for their own health. A dog is looking to us, when you look, feed me when I need to eat, give me what I need to do, take care of me, it’s like a baby. So when we when, they’re also not prejudiced, they don’t know they’re taking a supplement is going to help them. Also, they start feeling better and the owner goes, man he’s feeling better, he is more active. That makes everybody feel good.
You and I we were talking again a while ago, and I had a dog for you know, we adopted her for almost 15 years. And we had to put her down and I’m sure you hear these stories all the time. And it’s such a traumatic event. And I remember, you know, she seemed happy, she seemed okay. But at the end of the day, the vet you know, said she was she was failing and there was a lot of things going on. And I I wish I had met you then because you and I talked about it, if you could just give your pet maybe another six months a year or, or maybe even longer by, you know, by, you know, changing the oil first before the engine blows up. It’s you know, like you said, These are their family members.
Dr. Taylor 26:37
It is. That’s my whole mission in life. And when I started off with humans, humans take responsible for their own nutrition. They go, I’m gonna take this pill I’m gonna eat right. But the dogs look at us. They said, Please give me the food I need, please help me out here. They’re like babies, they don’t cook they can’t talk toyou exactly. So it’s our responsibility to really take care of them. So if I can add a year of life or two years of life to your pet, that that makes my whole life. Yes, it right there for me.
Yeah, you know, one of our producers, he was telling me, he just he’s got a cat. And, you know, a cat woke up in the middle of night, it was howling, they weren’t really sure what was happening. And they, you know, they brought him to the vet. And it was some sort of obstruction that it had and you know, in the surgery was $1,500. Now most people can’t afford that, you know, fortunately, he was able to do that. But in that scenario, people would, you know, probably put, you know, put their, their pet down. And I think that happens, not only with just that what I talked about for the symptom, or what happened, but it happens every single day. And a lot of it could just be really prevented by just getting the proper nutrition.
Dr. Taylor 27:35
I hate to say that, but I mean, that’s like a reality, right?
Dr. Taylor 27:38
I mean, besides picking a good food, picking good food first. The next thing that you’ve got to do for the health of your pet, it’s just so simple.
Sure. Dr. Taylor, you know, it’s really been an amazing show.Do you have any last thoughts for our viewers?
Dr. Taylor 27:50
The number one thing to do with a pet is pick a quality food. And I kind of say try to pick the best quality that you can afford. Beyond that, you’ve got to digest that food. And particularly if you’re doing the Highline food, if you’re spending really high dollars on a really good food, you want every bite to benefit that dog, you don’t want any of it just to shoot the dog on you.
Dr. Taylor, it’s been an amazing show. I’m sure we’ll have you back. Folks, I want to thank you for listening. You heard me talk about it a minute or so ago. And again, I do love dogs and cats. And you heard me talk about the traumatic event that I had to go through when I had to put my dog down. And it makes me sad knowing that I probably could have done some things for her that really could have helped her, you know, live a little bit longer to live a healthier and a happier life just a little bit longer so that they can provide me and my family with happiness. Well, you know, I do have new dogs and new cats, and they make me happy. Just like I know that they make you happy. And I know that you want the best for them as well. And, you know, you heard me talk about this earlier, you know, I’ve given this enzymatic formula to my, to my dogs and my cats now. And I’ve given it to my friends and their dogs and cats in what has happened and what continues to happen. It’s just, it’s remarkable. It makes me smile it makes it makes me happy knowing that my friends are happy and that their pets are happy and that my pets are happy and healthy as well. And I know that you want that for your furry family members as well. So go ahead and text PET to 978-999-3113 again, 978-999-3113. And I’m getting a little choked up here because I’m thinking about, you know, my dog that’s no longer with us. And I loved her so much. And just like I know that you love your pets right now and in some of the pets that you’ve had in the past and I just I’ve seen what this formula can do. And I know it can help your dogs and your cats. So again, text PET to 978-999-3113. Here’s what we’re allowing people to do what actually Dr. Taylor’s allowing people to do is try the product for 30 days. If it doesn’t work, you can go ahead and send it back for a refund.
