Good episode? Give it some love!
Hello Dog Lovers! I have so been looking forward to this interview! With us is Dr. Sue Armstrong, who is an integrative veterinary surgeon working in her referral practice in Yorkshire, England. She is the founder of The True Animal Plan, an online education program for animal owners and author of two books: Cancer in Animals: What is to be Cured and The Little Book of Thinking Dog
There are people, especially those hard-core raw feeders who think feeding vegetable matter is not necessary. Why do you think it’s so important to feed our dogs vegetables?
What benefits do dogs get from plant fiber?
If a dog eats grass do you believe that they are looking for certain nutrients found only in plant matter?
Can you run through the simple hierarchy of vegetables to feed and what to avoid?
You say to think rainbow?
Is it best to use whatever vegetables are in season?
Ideally how much of the diet should be vegetables?
Some people might think that they have to feed veggies everyday? I think you said before to think in two-week chunks of time. Can you elaborate?
You say that we should focus on the quality and not the quantity of the food that we are feeding. Can you explain?
Can you explain why dogs can’t digest the starches in whole veggies? Like if I gave my dog a raw carrot or green bean and it comes out whole on the other end…
Raw or cooked? What’s the best way to prepare veggies for your dog?
Thoughts on Fermented vegetables?
Do we need to be feeding organic only or are there some veggies that don’t have to be organic?
Do you want to mention anything about feeding fruits?
What are your thoughts on the green supplement powders on the market?
Dr. Armstrong, where can everyone find out more information about you and The True Animal Plan?
