Qusetions and Answers
WHAT IS PUPPY GOLD?
Puppy Gold is a pure white powder mixed with food, or fed alone. Puppy Gold is
the first formula patterned after the “gold standard” puppy formula,
mother's milk. Turns out, canine milk is highly unique. Puppy Gold is designed to duplicate the many survival and growth advantages of mother's milk.
WHAT WILL PUPPY GOLD DO FOR MY PUPPY?
First, Puppy Gold helps
boost immunity. Second, tissue and protein synthesis is enhanced.
Finally, maybe most important, joint and connective tissue formation is
promoted. The combination of immunity, growth and structural strength
produces rock solid bodies and health which can last a lifetime.
IS PUPPY GOLD BETTER THAN GOAT MILK?
milk is the absolute perfect formula for…goats! Goat milk and canine
milk are very different, because they're very different species. Dogs
are mobile, smart predators and their milk reflects it. Goats are,
well, goats. It's as absurd to feed goat milk to puppies as to feed cat
milk to a baby whale. Mother's milk is species specific, and Puppy Gold faithfully copies canine mother's milk without the use of trans fats .
HOW DOES PUPPY GOLD HELP BREEDING MOTHERS?
First, Puppy Gold helps
develop puppies inside the mother during pregnancy, sparing mom's
muscle and bone mass. Second, during lactation nutrient needs rise
400%. Insert study She extracts this enhanced need from her own body
stores of muscle and bone. Instead, Puppy Gold supplies
milk synthesizing building blocks, and spares her body's own stores.
The result is a shiny, robust and healthy mother during pregnancy and
HOW CAN IT IMPROVE MY BREEDING PROGRAM?
there are no runts. Every puppy gets ultimate nutrition. Second,
breeders get a clearer picture of what dogs to breed. Often the pup
that looks the best as an adult got the most milk supply as a pup. But,
that may not be the best genetic animal (genotype), but the best
nourished as a baby, and therefore, develops the most as an adult.
(phenotype). Puppy Gold insures
every pup gets an equal share of superrich milk. Call it the equalizer.
When they grow up, you'll see which has the best genetics to breed. The
true genotype value of an individual will be clearer.
DO THEY LIKE PUPPY GOLD?
Puppies and moms alike love Puppy Gold. Natural milk protein taste and smell stimulates eating in all puppies. Puppy Gold is ideal for neonates to mature mothers.
As a Milk Re-placer:
- Prepare enough formula for use within 24-48 hours. Always refrigerate unused prepared formula.
- Begin with boiled or bottled filtered water that has been allowed to cool to room temperature (70F).
To make one pint of formula, mix 1½ cups of water in a pint container/bottle. Add 2 scoops PUPPY GOLD powder. Mix/Shake until smooth.
For Weaning Puppies: Puppies should be weaned (removed from nursing) when they are about 25 days old
- Mix 1 scoop of PUPPY GOLD powder with every 1 cup of dog food. Add warm water (not to exceed 70F) as needed to produce a thick, soupy mixture.
For Growing Puppies:
- Mix 1 scoop PUPPY GOLD with each 2 cups dog. Feed dry, or with water, or ad lib. Feed until 4-6 months old.
For Pregnant and Nursing Mothers
- Puppy Gold supplies nutrients to help puppies grow inside mothers, and provide milk. Sparing the mother's own muscle and bone mass helps moms quickly snap back to full health and vigor.
- Provide one scoop PUPPY GOLD for every 10 lbs of body weight into daily food supply and continue one month (4 weeks) after weaning. Begin at start of conception and continue for two weeks after weaning.

The pet food industry has some dirty secrets that they hoped you’d never discover...but I’m blowing the whistle on them. And are they gonna be mad! But you’re being ripped off and your animals are suffering for it, in my opinion. And it’s been going on for decades. Strong words, I know, but after 20 years studying what’s actually used in commercial pet foods these days, I just couldn’t keep my mouth shut any longer. That’s why I put together this special investigative report. Once you’ve “digested” all this information, I’m certain that you’ll be as disgusted and outraged as I am.
First things first (or what’s not in the food): Judging from their advertisements and pretty photos, commercial pet foods contain choice cuts of beef, fresh grains, chicken breast, meat, eggs, rice…all the nutrition your dog could ever need. The same wholesome quality you eat, right? Wrong. Sounds great, I know, but look at it from a commercial point of view; those ingredients are costly, not to mention more desirable for human consumption. They’re just too expensive and good for lowly dogs.
I’ve gotten down and dirty and checked out the commercial manufacturers and I can tell you (as can industry watchdogs) that none of the big commercial producers use any of the above desirable ingredients in their feeds. The pictures they use of wholesome foods are flat out lies. Okay, so what is in the food? You might be sorry you asked. Remember your mental image and the photos they use of that wholesome healthy food, the beef, the chicken, those tasty whole grains…now, brace yourself for a reality check. Those choice cuts of beef are really cow brains, tongues, esophagi and fetal tissue that may be dangerously high in hormones. Much of the meat is diseased and even cancerous. Because using that great looking meat
means they’d have to actually pay for it, and as you’ll learn, pet food companies don’t buy anything human-grade.
Those “whole grains” have had the starch removed for cornstarch powder and often the oil has been extracted (by chemical processing) for corn oil, or are remnants from the milling process. Those grains that are truly whole have usually been deemed unfit for human consumption because of mold, contaminants, poor quality, or poor handling practices. Or worse, ultra-high pesticide concentrations. The last few years alone, dozens of dogs died from aflatoxin poisoning-traced to rotting grains rejected for human use, but just perfect for dog foods. After all, it’s only dogs, so who cares? Then, because the manufacturers know that the food is utterly devoid of any real nutrition it is “fortified” with vitamins and minerals. As sick as this fortification joke is, it’s made even worse by the fact that the nutrients added are also rejected for humans use and full of their own contaminants.
Why? Because the ingredients they are using are not wholesome, and the harsh manufacturing practices that are required to produce those cute shapes destroy what little nutritional value the food ever had. It’s kind of like depleted uranium—it looks the same but lacks the original zap. Remember, everything in pet food is scrap material from the human food industry. It’s unfit, unsafe or condemned for human use. Hello!
So humans benefit all around at the expense of your pet. Pet food manufacturers get great prices on the “waste materials”. Hint—if pet food companies don’t buy it, it’s fed to pigs before slaughter. Human food processing companies save money twice, once when they sell the materials that to them are merely garbage, and a second time when they avoid having to pay to dispose of that same disgusting muck. Is that a great business or what? Hungry yet? It gets worse… If this sounds like some sort of conspiracy, that’s because it is, at least in my opinion. It’s not by chance that four of the five largest U.S. pet food companies are subsidiaries of the major multi-national food corporations: Heinz, Nestle, Mars, Colgate-Palmolive and Ralston-Purina (who disguises this by having two separate food companies, one for human and the other for animal feeds).
Remember the Recent E-Coli Scare? It’s no wonder that dogs everywhere aren’t dropping like flies from e-coli infections. It’s testimony to the hardy evolutionary design of our best friends that they can survive given the incredibly high degree of bacterial contamination in the commercial foods we give them. Where humans drop like flies with food poisoning, dogs tough it out; but they suffer in their own way, too. According to API, the Animal Protection Institute, the problem is extreme. Parts deemed unfit for human food, include animals classed as “4-D” (dead, diseased, dying or disabled). These animals (which do not meet human-food qualifications) are sent to pet food processors straight away. 4-D meat includes meat that is revolting beyond words: pus-laden, gangrenous “green liver” syndrome and worse. Suffice to say, if you’ve ever seen the meat that goes into
today’s pet foods, you would not feed it anymore. And when you see the term “meat or poultry by-products” what does that mean? Quite simply, that’s what’s left of the carcass after human and mechanical de-boning and processing have been completed: bones, blood, pus, intestines, bowels, ligaments, subcutaneous fat, hooves, horns, beaks and any other parts that humans cannot or will not knowingly eat.
Maybe by-products should be renamed “bye-bye products”. But because of their low cost, they’re a staple of modern-day pet food. The fox is watching the doghouse! The Pet Food Institute (the trade association for pet food manufacturers) acknowledges the importance of by-products as a source of additional income for farmers and food processors. The truth is that most of these remnant foods are not only indigestible, they also provide a questionable source of nutrition for our animals. At best. So it strikes me as more than a little ironic that an organization such as this calls itself the Pet Food Institute. Perhaps what it should really be called is the “human food waste product recycling club”. At least that would be a more accurate description of their focus and intent. Call a spade a spade.
Remember the 70’s movie “Soylent Green”? In this cheesy movie, Charlton Heston screamed “Soylent Green is people!” Story line, they took people who died, ground them up, then fed them to other people in a product called Soylent Green. It was a well-guarded secret so nobody knew they were actually eating other people. Well modern day pet foods are the real life equivalent of “Soylent Green”. Fact is, the Soylent Green process feeds your dogs every day. Though you surely won’t find dogs or cats listed as ingredients on any pet food labels, the San Francisco Chronicle reported that euthanized companion animals were found in pet foods. This was vehemently denied by manufacturers; however, the American Veterinary Medical Association confirmed the Chronicle’s story. Think about it. Do you really believe the thousands of road kills, pets dying at veterinary clinics and animal shelters every day go to doggy heaven. I grew up with TV cartoons showing old racehorses going to the rendering
My research leads me to believe it’s the same for dogs today. So how is this effecting my pet? “From his experience as a veterinarian and federal meat inspector, P. F. McGargle, D.V.M., has concluded that feeding slaughterhouse wastes to animals increases their chance of getting cancer and other degenerative diseases. Those wastes, he reports, can include moldy, rancid or spoiled meats as well as tissues severely riddled with cancer. These meat scraps can also contain hormone levels comparable to those that have produced cancer in laboratory animals.
Dr. McGargle attributed these high levels to two causes: synthetic hormones routinely fed to livestock to stimulate rapid growth, and meat meal whose source is often glandular wastes and fetal tissues from pregnant cows. Both are naturally high in hormones. When livestock is slaughtered and the meat is processed, the hormones are still active. High hormone levels have the most severe effect on cats, which are extremely sensitive to them. The tissues or pellets that are used to fatten steers and caponize chickens, for example, are considered toxic to cats, even in very low levels. These hormones are not destroyed by the high temperature and pressure cooking that pet food manufacture requires. And what in the world is that terrible smell? Ever walk around the back of a restaurant that has a fryer? Did you notice that awful greasy rancid smell? You know, the one near that dumpster labeled industrial grease or oil disposal? Ever feel like that freshly opened bag of dog food smelled exactly the same way? You should. It does smell the same. That’s because the fat added to most commercial dog foods is refined animal fat, recycled kitchen grease, and other oils too rancid or deemed inedible for human use. These rancid fats are generally sprayed directly onto dried kibble or extruded pellets to make a product which even a dog won’t eat more palatable. While certain fats provide the luster and sheen to your dogs coat, the sparkle to his eyes and the extra calories working dogs require, the rancid fats that are discarded by restaurants or are rendered from slaughterhouse animals are not nearly so beneficial.
In fact, these rancid fats are being blamed for a host of new health related problems in dogs including; diarrhea, vomiting of bile, gas, bad breath and even severe digestive problems. In puppies and kittens, whose digestive tracts are not fully developed, these rancid fats can cause permanent damage leading to a lifetime of digestion and assimilation problems. Even in foods designed to be less allergenic, such as lamb and rice formulas, rancid fats can cause your pet to experience a reaction.
Do you put your dog “out to pasture”? Of course you don’t. Dogs don’t graze. And you don’t feed your dog wheat or hay or corn either. Or do you? In the last decade, as the populace of this country has moved its diet more and more towards grains and away from animal proteins, the amount of grain products in animal foods has increased proportionally. This has happened for two reasons; first, because we are consuming less meat, the amount of animals slaughtered has decreased and the byproducts of those slaughtered animals have undergone a like decline. Second, with an increase in human grain usage, grain unfit for human consumption, moldy grain and grain byproducts have all become progressively more available.
It should come as no surprise that corn and wheat are far from ideal for dogs or cats from a nutritional standpoint. Cats in particular suffer from diets that include a predominance of grain. That is because cats are obligate omnivores. That is, they require meat to fulfill certain physiological needs. Another problem with feeding predominately grain based foods has to do with the grains themselves. Many of the grains that find there way into commercial pet foods have become wet, or moldy or contaminated by a fungus. In 1995 Nature’s Recipe was forced to pull nearly 20 million worth of dog food contained wheat contaminated by a fungus that produced vomitoxin and aflatoxin which is a kind of poison called a mycotoxin that is given off when mold grows.
Peanuts are particularly susceptible to aflatoxin problems as the fungi which produce it tend to grow especially well on peanut hulls. Of course it probably won’t amaze you at this point to discover that peanut hulls are another major constituent of certain commercial pet foods. How could this terrible fungus occur in pet foods. Well…testing, which is not great even for human foods, is almost nonexistent for pet products. Was that you or the dog? Flatulence. It’s funny to blame it on your dog when you do it, but not nearly so funny when your dog does it all the time. Nevertheless, soy, which has been known to cause flatulence in dogs, has become an increasingly common ingredient in commercial foods. Another increasingly common reason for canine farting is intestinal blockages. The culprit; among others, humectants – ingredients such as corn syrup and corn gluten meal which bind water molecules to prevent oxidation – also bind the water in such a way that the food actually sticks to the colon and may cause blockage and fermentation—methane gas. The blockage of the colon may well cause an increased risk of cancer of the colon or rectum. Pickled or preserved? Sodium nitrite, butylated hydroxytoluene, ethoxyquin, butylated hydroxyanisole, propyl gallate, tertiary butylhydroquinone and other equally evil sounding compounds are being added to commercial dog foods.
Why? Because when you combine all of the aforementioned toxic decomposed, diseased, hormone laden and rancid ingredients into one product, the only thing that will keep them from becoming so utterly putrid is to lace them with powerful chemicals to keep them “stable”. We might as well be storing them in formaldehyde. And if you think the names of these chemicals sound bad, take a look at the problems they cause; cancers of the stomach, intestines and blood, kidney damage, central nervous system disorders, depressed immune function, liver damage other forms of chronic and acute chemical toxicity.
Even foods labeled “preservative free” may have one or more of the above chemicals added. That’s because the government does not require the manufacturer to list on the ingredient label anything added to ingredients prior to incorporation into the finished food. Thus, when rancid fat is preserved with ethoxyquin prior to arrival at a pet food manufacturers facility, the manufacturer, provided it does not add additional ethoxyquin to the material, is not required to list ethoxyquin anywhere on the label. Just how prevalent are these preservatives in the food? A recent analysis determined that two-thirds of the pet foods produced in the US had synthetic preservatives added by the manufacturers. Of the remaining third, 90% included ingredients that were already stabilized by synthetic preservatives.
Today, there are more than 8,600 recognized food additives with absolutely zero toxicity information on 45% of them! Of those that have been analyzed only 5% have had a complete health hazard assessment. Many of these chemicals are known to be carcinogenic above a certain level but are still allowed to be added in concentrations below the known carcinogenic amount. This is misleading because many of these compounds are not readily cleared from the body and can thus build up to very high levels over time. Ethoxyquin, for example, was found in dogs’ livers months after it had been totally removed from their diet. Since when do dogs need to be fed insecticide as part of a healthy diet? The answer to this question should be obvious. NEVER! Here’s another alarming fact: 60% of all herbicides, 90% of all fungicides and 30% of all insecticides have been proven to cause cancer in and of themselves. Virtually all of these chemicals find there way into commercial pet food via the added grains and meats used. Worse still, upwards of 80% of these chemicals, 49,000 in all, have virtually no toxicity data. In other words neither you, nor I, nor any scientist in any lab in the world has any idea what they will do to you pet today, tomorrow or ten years from now.
Another recent study found that these same chemicals lead to chromosomal mutations, double-strand DNA breaks and numerous mutations. To your dog, this means a greater incidence of cancer and other diseases. To your breeding program, this means lower survivability, mutated puppies and genetic aberrations that will make the pups non-salable.
When you think pet nutrition, you should be thinking pet food marketing. The first thing that commercial manufacturers do is assemble high-priced teams of marketing MBAs who spend millions to sell their products. They then create a diet working within specific guidelines, the main factor being bottom line profits. Want proof? A glance at any pet food industry related magazine reveals marketing articles out numbering nutritional ones by at least 10 to 1. Feeding trials are generally conducted from ten weeks to six months, however virtually no companies ever conduct long term or generational trials. Or safety tests, either.
The most important step (as far as companies are concerned) is palatability testing. Basically, they want to make sure that dogs will eat more of their brand than comparable brand X. The same food chemistry wizards from these huge multinational companies that brought us Cheez Whiz, Tater Tots and Baco Bits open their trick bags of synthetic color and taste treats. So using commercial pet food is basically like force feeding junk food to your pet year-round. All pet foods, wet or dry undergo ultra high temperature processing. This is good from a bacterial standpoint, but nutritionally it’s devastating to an already deficient food. Most vitamins, amino acids and virtually all enzymes are damaged or destroyed by high temperature processing. In particular, the “cross linking” of amino acid bonds damages protein values. All in all, in my opinion, regardless of brand,
commercial pet foods represent a clear and present danger to the health, appearance and fecundity of your animals.
Most supplements are even worse! In the attempt to fill the huge nutritional gaps and avoid the dangers of commercial dog food, you may try dietary supplement. After all, human dietary supplements have evolved from the snake oil image into super effective sports supplements-even into products like “Ensure” and other advertised on TV. But pet supplements are often made under conditions so bad and ingredients so contaminated they make pet food look positively healthy. Since no organization enforces purity or even the most basic of safety tests, many—if not most—pet supplements are dangerous to animals.
This is partly due to the fact that pet supplements use the same diseased 4-D meat and dog food, but are not cooked or sterilized. Meaning the e. Coli, salmonella and other bad bugs are often at dangerous levels—many times over safety margins. I personally visited a supplement company located on a firewood lot in Reno Nevada. As wood lots go, this one was filthy. The product was made in an open barn invested with rats, mice and even bats that roosted in the eves. I won’t go into the sanitation of the mixer and other rumors swirling around its use. I understand he later moved to either Iowa or Idaho to continue his secretive ways with less overview.
So what in the world can I do about this?!? I wish the answer were simple. Unfortunately, that’s not the case. As a group we can lobby for improved standards of ingredients, control of additives and truth in labeling on all commercially prepared pet foods. The problem with this approach is two-fold. One, we can expect to pay substantially more for pet food if these regulations come to be; and second, it will take significant time for them to be enacted and enforced. All the while the health of our animals is suffering.
The other option is to get a group of nutrition and biochemical Ph.Ds. together with a huge budget for research, and almost unlimited resources for human-grade nutrients like real roast chicken, etc. Unfortunately, neither of these is easy nor are they practical options. Perhaps the best thing that you can do is feed foods made by a new, cutting edge high-tech pet food producer that’s dragging pet food into the 21st century. The approach is radically simple—duplicate wild canine diets, then super fortify the products with the latest, most potent “nutriceuticals”.
The thing that sets this company apart from all others is that it has innovated much of the most powerful and legitimate human natural nutrition over the last two decades. These high tech food supplements are designed to augment, and literally supercharge, any food you currently feed. These products are profoundly beneficial in two ways. First, they provide extra badly needed nutrition without the toxicity burden of conventional foods.
Second, they unlock more nutrients from commercial foods you are forced to use. There is hope. I predict that over the next few years, the same revolution of health knowledge that’s occurred in human nutrition will occur for pets. With new access to the information highway, this will occur quite fast. Starting now, the definition of health will change from a mere absence of disease to optimal functioning of all metabolic systems.
As with tobacco companies, the public will become progressively aware of this violation of our trust. As that occurs, tougher standards and higher quality foods will come into existence. It’s about time. Leading the way will be this small high-end company that produces safe, healthy and effective products for dogs and cats today. Historically, due to cost of the product and limited funds for marketing, these companies have mainly sold their products to kennels, performance dog enthusiasts and professional trainers, who know all too well the problems associated with commercial foods and the benefits of a proper feeding program.
Animal Naturals is the company I’m referring to. For nearly two decades this organization has been researching dietary strategies for human and canine athletes. Millions of human athletes, and now your pet, have benefited from these advances. Animal Naturals products have been born out of necessity. I hope that the contents of this report have enlightened you to the tragic abuse our animals are suffering at the hands of corporate America, and that you now have the knowledge and the desire to do something about it.

WE MAKE NATURAL AWESOME
NATURAL USED TO MEAN LAST PLACE. When I began creating human and canine foods, natural was code for “ineffective”. Natural nutrition just wasn’t effective; natural athletes lost to druggies. Natural bodybuilders looked like scrawny kids next to druggies. In drug tested contests, performance levels fell dramatically.
To insiders, natural was a joke.
22 years later, natural foods I helped develop make today’s human and canine athletes leaner, faster and stronger. Improvements in power, strength and endurance are almost beyond belief. These products allow athletes to train harder, more often. The day to day difference in accelerating recovery and reducing muscle damage exceed even performance drugs. As proof, natural athletes tested for drugs actually beat drugged athletes and shatter old drug records.
Natural is no longer a joke.
Literally millions of athletes have set new levels of
personal performance using these breakthroughs.
How did these products grow to eclipse drugs and power virtually every modern athlete? Renowned scientists from local universities Stanford and Berkeley helped. So did pro athletes and dogs to test on. But the real key to ongoing innovation of these natural products was not science, but Nature. Unlocking more hidden genetic potential required a fresh look at the evolutionary design of humans and canines.
By coaxing Nature’s DNA secrets from the human, canine and equine body, my past products have changed the rules for drug-free performance. But my newest products surpass everything that’s gone before, in my opinion. These formulas contain power and safety impossible just a few years ago. Since increased performance is founded on health, overall health is raised.
And my new therapeutics make natural healing a reality. Until now, natural remedies for pets were even more of a joke than nutrition used to be. A nice idea that just did not work.
My new healing formulas rival prescription drugs
effectiveness, yet are 100% natural…and cost less!
22 years ago, I transformed natural from a joke into a revolution, changing sports forever. It’s hard to find a serious athlete who has not raised performance and health through the use of these products. Everyday, throughout the world, Professional, Olympic and other athletes use these formulas to compete against—and beat—drugged athletes.
