As we turn our hearts and thoughts towards the most Thankful time of the year, we here at Steve’s Real Food are grateful for so many things. Here are the things we are grateful for at Steve’s Real Food.
In this week’s blog, we are going to be sharing some stories we have gathered from retailers around the country who have helped pet parents switch to Steve’s Real Food through their advice, research, and especially, their willingness to care. See why more and more people are switching to raw, thanks to the hard work of retailers who are making a difference:
On a recent forum post about commercially prepared raw food for pets, there were over fifty comments from raw feeders bragging about how they prepare all their meals for their pets and that is is THE only way to feed your pets. Although we applaud these passionate people pet parents, it is important to know homemade raw diets are not for everyone.
The Cannabis plant has many strains, but two broad sub-categories are Marijuana and Hemp. Marijuana is defined as a cannabis plant that has a level of THC higher than .3%. Hemp is a cannabis plant with a THC content lower than that marker. It is the THC component that makes marijuana illegal in most states, but hemp products are legal in all 50 states.
“I foster dogs for French Bulldog Rescue Network (FBRN), a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to rescuing, rehabilitating and re-homing French bulldogs in need. I would like to share the story of one of my recent foster dogs, Mambo.
One of the biggest hurdles that keeps pet parents from a transitioning to a raw diet is the cost. It is no secret that a commercially made raw dog food is more expensive than kibble. But when everything is factored together, how much are you really saving by buying kibble? Let’s take a look at exactly how much in this blog by Nicole Lindsley.
The wait is over on the diagnostic tests, and yes it confirms our worst fear for our dog: definitive diagnosis is CANCER. These tests will also tell us what type and grade of cancer our pet has.

Now to the truly scary part. This overregulation and government inefficiency will physically make us sick. It is true. The “cleaner” our food, the worse off we are – something that is directly fueled by overregulation.
Corn is the number one ingredient in kibble, (and in many human foods) because it is heavily subsidized by the US government and so can be grown cheaply by farmers. Yet as prevalent as it is in our food, the largest buyers of corn in the US are not food manufacturers, but large-scale meat companies that feed their animals an unnatural, corn-based diet, which their bodies were never designed to eat. This translates into a decrease of nutritional value in the meats you and your dog eat. Nutritionally deficient cows = nutritionally deficient meat. The rise of chronic disease, cancer, infertility, anxiety/depression, ADHD, obesity, and many more diseases can be linked back to nutritional deficiencies and hormonal imbalances that come from eating cheap foods manufactured with an eye on the dollar and not on public health
Cancer describes diseases involving the uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells within the body.
