Hear from award-winning veterinarian Dr. Edward Tuk about what you should and should not be feeding your dogs, and the powerful impact of nutrition on your dogs’ health
By Dr. Edward Tuk
As a veterinarian, it’s my life’s work to make sure that our pets are as healthy as possible. Unfortunately, we’re seeing an increasing number of health issues for our dogs, particularly as they get older – digestive issues, joint problems, obesity, diabetes, and higher cancer rates.
The good news is that whether your dog is young or old, or healthy or already experiencing some issues, there are steps you can take now that will reduce the risk of your dog becoming one of these statistics.
That’s because the single most important thing you can do for your dog’s health is PROPER NUTRITION.
Would you believe that a recent scientific study showed that dogs who ate the right kind of vegetables at least 3 times per week, had a 70% to 90% lower risk of developing cancer, than the other dogs that ate fewer vegetables?
The Limits of Commercial Dog Food
Most people think that commercial dog food – particularly the so-called ‘premium’ dog food - will provide all the nutrition that their dogs need. Unfortunately, that’s not true.
The problem is that manufacturers design their dog food to have a long shelf life - at least two years. To do that, the manufacturers use a very high temperature, high pressure cooking process which unfortunately introduces some potentially harmful elements to the food, including advanced glycation end products. Advanced glycation end products can cause inflammation and can create all sorts of problems with your dog – itching, joint discomfort, allergies, bad gas, issues with their stool - and worse, they are linked to arthritis, diabetes, heart disease, and even cancer.
Many manufacturers also add preservatives to make the food last longer, but some of those preservatives can cause health issues themselves.
In addition to introducing these potentially harmful elements, the high temperature, high pressure cooking process is essentially ‘cooking out’ much of the nutrition that was supposed to be in the food.
For example, Vitamin D gets a lot of attention within the medical community because it’s important for a dog’s heart, bones, and other systems – and it may even reduce the risk of canine cancer. But roughly 75% of dogs don’t get sufficient vitamin D! And that statistic is even scarier when you consider about half of all dogs over the age of 10 will get cancer!
If your dog eats mostly commercial dog food, there’s a good chance your dog isn’t getting other important nutrients either, like omega-3s, polysaccharides, enzymes, and antioxidants. These are important for a dog’s coat and skin, immune system, cardiovascular system, and much more.
How I Learned About Good Nutrition – The Hard Way
I learned about the importance of nutrition early on in my career, not long after graduating from veterinary school. My dog at the time was a big German Shepherd named Sunny, who was always cheerful and high energy.
One day, when Sunny was only a few years old, she got sick. At first I thought it was a virus, but I couldn’t figure out what was wrong with her. She wouldn’t eat, and as the days went by, she got weaker and weaker.
I was devastated. After all this medical training, I couldn’t figure out what was wrong with my own dog! I swallowed my pride and asked several of my most experienced professors from veterinary school to examine Sunny, to see if they could figure out the problem. But they were stumped too.
My beloved dog was on the verge of dying. One night, I broke down – I held Sunny in my arms, and I cried. I’d helped so many dogs get better in my veterinary practice. So why couldn’t I help my own dog? This cheerful, loving companion who had been by my side since she was a puppy…
As a last resort, I called up a doctor who’d spoken to my class once in veterinary school. He wasn’t a veterinarian... he was an expert in traditional Chinese medicine. He treated animals using techniques that were first developed hundreds of years ago, long before the invention of x-rays and antibiotics and other modern medicine. Most of the students didn’t pay much attention to him, and frankly I didn’t either at the time, but now I was at my wit’s end and I was willing to try anything that might help Sunny.
Fortunately, the Chinese doctor agreed to examine Sunny, and after he did, he prepared a special mixture of herbs and nutrients.
Sunny was so weak she could barely swallow the mixture at first. But I gave it to her every morning and night, and much to my amazement, Sunny started to improve. Her energy came back, she began eating again… and within a couple of weeks she was running to the door to greet me and kiss me just like she had before.
I brought Sunny back into the clinic and my colleagues were stunned by how healthy she looked, after she’d been so sick just days before. Having my beautiful Sunny restored to health, after almost losing her, brought tears to my eyes.
And the Chinese doctor hadn’t done this by giving Sunny a bunch of pills -- he’d done it by changing her nutritional intake.
After that experience, I vowed to learn everything I possibly could about nutrition. That was over a decade ago. Since then, I’ve spent years learning about canine nutrition, including the discoveries we’ve made in Western science, and the traditional medicine used on Sunny.
I’ve seen the short-term and long-term effects of nutrition on literally thousands of dogs.
I don’t want any dog owner to have to suffer the fear and worry I experienced when Sunny got sick, when so many problems can often be prevented with a healthier diet.
Introducing Radiant Canine
So the key question is, what’s the best way to improve a dog’s nutrition?
That’s the challenge we set out to solve here at Canine Sciences. Our team of veterinarians, scientists, and dog lovers wanted to combine all of our experience, and all of the recent scientific research into canine nutrition and health, to solve these nutritional issues that affect so many dogs.
Our idea was to develop a healthy ‘super supplement’ that you can add to your dog’s diet, and that contains all of the essential nutrients your dog needs.
We spent many months developing and refining this product. It’s called Radiant Canine, and it’s an amazing blend of over 45 ingredients – everything we know about how to optimize a dog’s diet and health. You just sprinkle some on your dog’s food – and because we’ve given it a delicious bacon flavor, your dog will love eating it!
With all of the nutrition we packed in to this formula, we easily could have created several different products -- one product designed to improve your dog’s coat and skin health, another to support healthy joints, another for digestive health, and another providing a mix of vitamins and minerals.
We decided to do something different – something that would make it as easy as possible for every dog to get the right nutrients to help with all of these areas of health. Instead of four or five different products, we wanted Radian Canine to be a single, comprehensive nutritional supplement – the most comprehensive canine nutritional product available, bar none.
This is the first Full-Spectrum Canine Nutritional Supplement for your dog on the market. We like to say that if your dog were a nutritional scientist, this is what he or she would ask for.
Fantastic Stuff. Jack loves this. He is a picky eater but he gobbles up his food now and it’s great to know he’s getting all the right nutrition needs.
We love it! Ruffle seems much more playful and energetic now. My wife keeps asking if they can make this product for me too!
So happy! Such a wonderful product. My dogs have been eat with their food and they seem happier and perkier!
Thank you! AJ is acting like a puppy these days! And he absolutely loves this - you should see his tail wag when he eats now! My brother was so impressed he got it for his retriever too ;)
