This was recorded with veterinarian, Dr. Johan Joubert (he passed away in 2011 suddenly). This is a very intense message. Dr. Joubert was a passionate proponent of raw feeding our carnivore companions. He learned through the support and aid of veterinarian Dr. Tom Lonsdale, author of Raw Meaty Bones.
Recorded July 9, 2009. Content is just as valid today as dogs are STILL carnivores - they have NOT evolved into anything else.

What Dr. Joubert has to share is very important to understand and listen to very actively and intently. He isn't one to tread lightly. He doesn't mince words, he doesn't try to tickle the ears and tell us what we want to hear but he does state what we NEED to hear. He died at the young age of 51 and I think in part due to his fight against the powers that be. This may not sit well with some of you but understand he knows what he is speaking about as an advocate who worked hard to help the carnivore animals - both wild and domestic - be cared for according to their anatomical and physiological needs. He said to put aside what we THINK is convenient or what any veterinarian might tell you to the contrary. Yes, he said that and a whole lot more.
In the UK he worked for both the zoo and worked on the big cats as well as for the Greyhound Racing track - he was appalled at the lack of proper care these carnivores received. If we had been able to capture all he taught and if he had allowed us to record all of it, anyone who continued to feed kibble would just be lazy and unwilling to hear and receive the truth Dr. Johan taught. We lost a true advocate for the carnivore - domestic and wild - but hopefully through the many we've taught the torch is lit and continuing forward. Please listen and heed, your dogs will love for you it with good health!
