    Remember, even non-GMO crops like wheat, lentils, chickpeas, peas, oats, barley, flax, corn, soy, millet, canola, sugar beets, potatoes etc, use glyphosate as a desiccant. This glyphosate is sprayed on the crop a few days before it is harvested. This means that it is used at the end of the growing cycle, when it is convenient for the farmers to have the foliage die back uniformly to make harvesting easier, faster, and cleaner. We are being poisoned for the convenience of conventional farmers and the ultraprocessed food industry.

      Exactly just before harvest [allowing less chance for it to wash off the food [as it also more evenly ripens the wheat kernels from the toxic shock effect. Due to developed weed resistance the plan is to add other toxins to the current {Round Up] glyphosphate. The Roundup also acts as an accelerant to fungus as a side effect.

    what about cats

      Do you mean what about a detox diet for cats? If so – I did not find a recipe for the same for cats. Dr. Dodds recipe is for dogs only. If anyone else has suggestions – please share.

    So sad. We are killing Mother Earth, our companion animals and ourselves…..

    Wow. Pet owners must be slapping their foreheads, thinking OMG now what? They’ve stopped using bad PF. Are home cooking. Feeding whole foods. Now it’s gotta be non-GMO and organic! (I know I’m discouraged!) Folks can’t afford to eat healthy themselves!

    Let’s figure out the most simple things that can help, and work our way up to the “Ultimate Diet!”

    Stop with routine yard pesticides. Throw out ROUND-UP. Do the bare minimum, and only when necessary. Most people automatically fertilize and weed spray. But, the need can be seasonal. Look for enviro-safer products. DON’T let the pet on treated areas (no matter what the Directions say!) until time has passed. I wait for rain or water.

    Filter contaminants from water. Use filtered, aerated water fountain with only DISTILLED water ( that’s what our family uses).

    Limit you dog’s exposure to neighborhood pesticides too (or wash feet, and wipe down their body more often). There are very easy dog wipes out there now! (Check the “chemicals” in them).

    Feed more RAW (less carbs.) We can only hope the added produce hasn’t been overly treated. If you do need a binder for home cooked recipes (as I do), organic would be helpful.

    If grass-fed beef (hopefully organic) is out of budget, how about more canned fish? BPA free. Organic chicken? Organic organ meats are important too.

    Watch what products are used to clean floors. To polish and dust wood. Can enviro-friendly be substituted? Natural vinegar is safer, usually cuts grease. Always pick up food/water dishes, whenever cleaning, vacuuming, dusting!

    Change water frequently, especially outdoor containers. Clean water dishes (vinegar, again) except for raw food dishes which need soap!

    Look for organic eggs, usually pretty cost effective.

    Primarily indoor pets need much less (if no) pesticide treatments. Flea-Busters used to make an inorganic (boric acid) powder that can be worked into flooring/carpets and lasts an incredibly long time! I take care of other people’s pets too (plus mine) and haven’t used any other flea treatment in a decade!

    I know some people are bound by law to vaccinate. But think twice about (so-called) routine vaccinations, if they can be safely post-phoned. At least ask the Vet to write a health waiver.

    The last thing we want to do here, is discourage new Owners following TAPF now, from feeding decent food, JUST because “healthy” seems like to much trouble! Or too expensive!! 😄 Every little step helps!!
