Breeder Information

There are many excellent natural ways to keep breeding animals and offspring healthy and disease free. This page will tell you many of the things that can be done to keep them healthy, prevent disease, and treat it naturally.

They say it takes 5 generations of raw fed, unchemically or traditionally treated animals to get a completely healthy animal that will never succumb to disease. Whether you breed dogs, cats, horses, ferrets, goats, sheep, cows, pigs, or any other animal species, the natural rearing rules are generally the same.

Starting with the breeding parents, the goal is to provide optimum nutrition and supplements to promote optimally healthy disease free offspring. Let's start at the top:



Aside from doing all the things above for breeding parents make sure to pamper mom and make sure she gets plenty of exercise. Animals that are confined to kennels, crates, small stables or other confined areas can have difficult births, some requiring C-Sections. One of the biggest reasons plenty of exercise is really important to pregnant females. They need room to stretch, walk and run daily. In the wild, canines, felines, horses, and all other animals are active - hunting down their species appropriate nutrition or browsing the meadows and pastures finding good things to nibble on. Birthing for them is but a simple hiccup in their daily routine largely because they are eating well AND because they get the regular exercise needed which helps make birthing quicker and easier. Do notvaccinate pregnant or nursing animals.


  1. As soon as the puppy, kitten, foal, etc. start eating on their own, put food grade diatomaceous earth in their daily food. This will keep worms from eating them, their food, and/or sucking their blood and help prevent coccidia, plus sweep some bacteria and viruses out of the system, as well as provide 15 vital minerals to keep young ones healthy and strong. DE can be mixed inNZ Colostrum and puppies and kittens will lick it right up or added to their raw chicken liver, heart, gizzards, etc.
  2. IF you've had issues with coccidia or giardia, see #1 above. You can also dose preventatively withKochi Free (formerly Kocci Free) 2x/day for 10 full days starting as early as 13 days of age or active infection 4x/10 for 10 full days. Far more effective than traditional antibiotics Flagyl, Marquis, Albon, etc.
  3. IF you vaccinate, consider Dr. Jean Dodd's puppy vaccine protocol, starting with a single parvo/distemper vaccine at 9 weeks of age, then again at 12 weeks, then once at a year of age. No other vaccines except rabies as allowable by law. For kittens, she recommends TWO Trivalent (distemper, herpes, & calicivirus) KILLED (NOT modified live) vaccinations, one at 8 weeks of age and another at 12 weeks of age. Give Life Cell Support for 1 to 2 weeks prior to getting vaccinations and for 30 days afterwards, twice/daily to help alleviate the stress on the body, help sweep the toxins from the vaccines out of the blood, liver, and lymphatic system.
  4. Parvo Prevention:  If you have previously had parvo on your premises, you want to read the information about Paxaid (formerly Parvaid) & Vibactra Plus as excellent parvo preventatives that have a 90% success rate preventatively treating puppies who are exposed to the parvo virus, as well as treating the parvo virus with an 85% success rate.
  5. Feline Distemper Prevention:  If you have previously had feline distemper on yourFeline Distemper premises, please read the information about Kitty-DT (formerly Kitty Distempaid) & Vibactra Plus as these products are known to prevent feline distemper (aka feline panleukopenia) when kittens have been exposed to the virus, as well as helping to heal feline distemper.
  6. Keep your cats, kittens, dogs, and puppies free from fleas and mite naturally with Flea Free Food Supplement, as soon as they are drinking and/or eating on their own.
  7. Species appropriate raw food promotes optimum puppy and kitten health.
  8. Plenty of good healthy exercise and sunshine. Mom's should be running and playing up until the day they give birth. For their health and the health of their babies.


  1. Paxaid is excellent to help reduce travel stress, calm, soothe the intestinal tract, help prevent vomiting, diarrhea, poor appetite, and boost the immune system. 2 to 4x/day is fine for this purpose.
  2. Derma Nerv can be helpful to overactive animals to help calm and soothe the nerves.
  3. Tossa-K (formerly Kennel-Koff) can be given a day or two before the outing, along with the day(s) of the outing, and a few days afterwards to help prevent contraction of upper respiratory infections. Give twice/day for this purpose or 4x/day for 10 days for active upper respiratory infection.
  4. Flea Free to help assure they won't bring home any blood sucking parasites, such as fleas, lice, mites, etc.
  5. Coccidia and giardia can be prevented by giving Kochi Free 2x/day or for active infection give 4x/day for 10 full days.
