Natural Dog Care Leads to Wellness, Happiness and a Longer Life
On a scale of 1 to 10, how healthy is your dog?
If you answered anything other than 10 or you're just not sure, you have come to the right place. Between thousands of dog care choices, advertisements and conflicting opinions, making the right decisions is a tough job.
You're here, so you've somehow sifted through the mess and realized that "going organic" is a good thing. And you're right on the mark health-, environmental- and ethical-wise.
But the questions about taking care of your dog the natural and holistic way can become more matted than your buddy's hair after 2 months without a bath...

"Since converting my practice to the use of homeopathy and nutrition, my experience of being a veterinarian has been transformed. I am really, truly seeing animals get well from conditions that are simply considered incurable or hopeless from the conventional perspective."Richard H. Pitcairn, DVM, PhD

Most online free dog health advice does NOT have the best interests of your dog in mind... it only rearranges and repeats "common knowledge" that seeks to address symptoms after a problem arises rather than addressing the root cause of existing and potential problems. Organic Pet Digest provides unbiased expert dog care advice that will change the way you take care of your dog.
Alternative medicine for dogs has proven to be more effective than popular dog vet care in many ways.

Natural and organic dog supplies are not just a fad, they are important to the health of your dog, your family and the environment.
