    Correct Answer
    C. Raw diet, with raw meat, bones, vegetables and fruit.
    Explanation
    The best diet for a dog is a raw diet, which includes raw meat, bones, vegetables, and fruit. This type of diet closely mimics what dogs would eat in the wild and provides them with the necessary nutrients for optimal health. Raw meat and bones help maintain dental health and provide essential proteins and minerals. Vegetables and fruit offer vitamins and antioxidants. This diet is often recommended by veterinarians as it promotes healthy digestion, a strong immune system, and a shiny coat. It is important to consult with a vet to ensure the raw diet is balanced and meets the specific nutritional needs of the individual dog.

    Are vaccines good for your pet?

    • A.

      Of course they are!! They help prevent disease and keep my pet healthy.

    • B.

      They are okay, I only vaccinate my pet once or twice, because they are harmful.

    • C.

      No. Vaccines do more harm than good. They cause my pet to be tired and ill. I never vaccinate my pet.

    • D.

      I have heard that they are "bad", but I think that is silly. They are fine.

    Correct Answer(s)
    B. They are okay, I only vaccinate my pet once or twice, because they are harmful.
    C. No. Vaccines do more harm than good. They cause my pet to be tired and ill. I never vaccinate my pet.
    Explanation
    Vaccines can be very unhealthy for your pet. One or two in a dog's life is okay, but yearly "boosters" do not actually help your pet (they don't increase immunity).

      Anything my veterinarian prescribes to me.

      Flea products, like Frontline and K9 Advantix.

    Correct Answer(s)
    C. An herbal oil mix, like citronella, neem, cedar, and eucalyptus.
    D. A flea comb.
    Explanation
    A flea comb and an herbal mixture are best. An herbal mix will probably not kill the fleas but will drive them away (for the house and pet). You can flea comb your pet and empty the fleas in a plastic bag and burn it. Most chemical foggers, bombs, sprays, and spot-on will sometimes kill the fleas, but the fleas can become immune to the toxins and just weaken them. And the chemicals can actually harm your dog.

    D. Meaty Bones
    Explanation
    Rawhide can obstruct the dog's digestive system and hurt (or kill) him. A toy is fine, but won't clean teeth much. Tartar control diets actually stick to your dog's teeth, making it worse! A toothbrush is great at removing tartar, but your dog won't like it, So I use raw meaty bones (3-4 a month). My dog's teeth are all pearly white in just two weeks!
