PHD Frequently Asked Questions
If I use a PHD food do I need to feed anything else?
Technically, no. PHD diets are complete foods. However you may wish to supplement their diet by the addition of raw, cooked, or canned foods for whatever your beliefs are. If you choose this method just maintain the PHD diet as 50% of the total diet based upon the feeding guidelines established by PHD. Always
remember that dogs are carnivores, and carnivores eat meat.
Do I need to add any supplements to the PHD dog food?
As your dogís life progresses, you will occasionally have to add supplements
to his food to return his body to balance. PHD offers a complete line of
supplements and vitamins to help keep your dog healthy. Our supplements are
designed to work with the PHD family of foods on animals that have been
What can I give my dog for a snack?
Fresh fruits and vegetables are the best snacks. Greens are great, as are
carrots. The best treat of all is a raw, frozen marrow bone. When
your dog has eaten the marrow out of the bone, you can stick some raw meat mixed
with peanut butter in the hole, refreeze it and give it as another treat. We
also offer a complete line of Natural Nosh dog biscuits, which make excellent
How long will a bottle of Unleash last?

What do I feed my puppy?† You donít have a puppy food.
Of course we do. Itís called PHD Viand Canine Growth and Maintenance or Aelyon. We know all animals on earth eat the same foods throughout their lives, so do dogs and cats. We believe
puppies and older dogs should eat the same balanced food. A puppy should eat
approximately 50-100% more than an adult animal of the same weight. If you have
a puppy, we stress the importance of the addition of whole, live foods. They are
crucial during the growing period. See Feeding Puppies for more information.
Do I need to do the Detox Diet?
Not necessarily. You can go to the cleansing diet on our web site or do the simplified version.
When your dog has a problem (like an allergy, for instance) cleansing his system
will help eliminate toxins and will give him a balanced system on which to build

I'm considering adding a digestive enzyme to my dog's diet. Why should I
Unleash supplies plant and animal digestive enzymes normally acquired by
eating raw and whole foods. A natural diet is abundant in enzymes, but there
are dogs who, because of illness or genetically inherited diseases, are
deficient in enzymes and need to have them supplemented. Older dogs benefit
greatly from the addition of enzymes. As their digestive tracts age,
they digest food less efficiently.
Do you suggest anything for ear infections and ear mites?
Yes, you can use garlic-mullein ear oil, 3 to 4 drops, 2 times daily.
