Good episode? Give it some love!
Welcome Dog Lovers! Dr. Chris Bessent is someone that I couldn’t wait to have on the show and here she is! Dr. Bessent has over thirty years of experience in veterinary medicine, including certificates in veterinary acupuncture, chiropractic, and Chinese herbology as well as a master’s degree in acupuncture & oriental medicine. With degrees in veterinary medicine, nutrition & animal science, she founded The Simple Food Project, formulating freeze-dried recipes for pets from nothing but whole foods.

Currently, she divides her time between The Simple Food Project and Herbsmith, a manufacturer of premium quality supplements for dogs and cats. Both are owned and operated out of her facilities in southeastern Wisconsin.

Dr. Bessent, why don’t we start with, what is Glyphosate?

Can you give us a little history on this toxin, when it came to be.

I heard you mention that most crops get sprayed more than once and glyphosate is actually sprayed again to help the entire crop mature at the same time?

And it concentrates in plants with seeds?

In 2010, the World Health Organization categorized glyphosate as a “probable carcinogen”. Why does the US continue to spray glyphosate on crops?

What foods are most likely to be contaminated?

Aren’t these the same ingredients found in most commercial pet foods?

Can you briefly explain GMO foods and what are the most prominent GMO foods?

And it’s hard to wash off of the foods right?

You suggest a link with some of the most common diseases and glyphosate.

Why are our dogs at such risk?

How do we Minimize The Effects On our dogs?

And you believe that glyphosate and GMOs are directly linked to the DCM cases we’re seeing? Can you share that with us?

I understand that there is a Glyphosate Pet Test?

Wag Out Loud

The Wag Out Loud pawdcast started as a passion project that would help all of us to be the BEST advocates for our dogs’ health and wellness. After many amazing guests, intriguing topics and incredible feedback, the WOL pawdcast is hitting a nerve with dog lovers all over the world. Why is it that over 50% of our dogs are getting cancer? I believe it is because of the extreme toxic load that are dogs are taking on from not only their poor diets, but from their environment as well. We can do so much better for our dogs, but first we need to be educated on how to make the right choices for our dogs, to help them lead longer and healthier lives. Our short and succinct episodes (about 30 mins each) feature experts in the fields of canine health, nutrition, and wellness as well as recommendations about products and services that I've used, know, like and trust and have found to enhance the lives of dogs. My name is Krista and I am the host of the WOL pawdcast. After receiving my certification in canine nutrition and noticing that most dogs are getting sicker and living shorter lives, I have become obsessed with bringing experts and dog enthusiasts together in committed community. Together we can learn about the most updated science, treatments, protocols and products that will benefit both the mental and physical health of our pups. I continue to learn something every single day. This show mostly features topics and opinions from those in the holistic and integrative veterinary health industry. We address things like dental health, over vaccination, nutrition, benefits of feeding raw, gut health and the immune system, common canine diseases, aging issues, behavioral issues, cognition and so much more. You love your dog, right? And you want to provide them with the best life possible. Let’s learn together. No matter where you live, your financial status, how many dogs you have, if they are a pure breed or mixed, we have something for every dog parent on the planet. Dogs are such amazing creatures and are a part of our families. As research continues, we are learning more and more about how they enhance our lives. It’s time to give back all of the unconditional love that our dogs show us. They are here to teach us so many things…we just need to know how to listen. Nothing and I mean nothing, in the dog industry is regulated. That includes food, treats, supplements or the manufacturing of dog products. It really is like the wild, wild west and we have to do our own research on products, ingredients and materials. We can’t be fooled by false marketing claims. This is the only podcast that focuses on practical, actionable tips and strategies to help your dog to thrive. Tune in for the latest research, science-based information, natural alternatives and inspiration for ensuring you are making well-informed decisions, when it comes to your dog’s health and happiness. Just think of Wag Out Loud as the ultimate resource for the dog lover who is on a quest to provide the best care for his/her canine companion(s). I am the guide that helps you to navigate the landscape of conflicting and confusing information in the ever-growing pet health space. Listen in to all of the Wag Out Loud pawdcast episodes and be sure to tell your dog-loving friends about the Show. Your dog will thank you!
