Today owning Dogs for pets is ubiquitous.
In answer to “why is the Dog man’s best friend?”, it is no wonder as dogs make a huge contribution to one’s quality of life.
And if one does not own a dog, one should seriously consider obtaining one for health and longevity regardless if one is on The Ketogenic Diet or otherwise.
Dogs track and follow along with the Caveman from earliest times. It is well recognized that they evolved from the wolf. The progression is thought to be that as the earlier cavemen began to clump in groups that they began to pile up their waste in certain areas.
When this began, then the wolves began to come to the trash dumps to eat versus hunting for their food. After generations of wolves, some began to not hunt but depend on the trash dumps for food. And, gradually they became more domesticated over generations.
Dogs are known as “Man’s Best Friend” for a reason. The reason is that this is true.
They have provided service in a huge number of areas that are continuing to expand. As they say: “First they take your heart away, then they take your couch away, and then they take your bed away”.
Mental Health Benefits
Companionship is a key asset of having a dog.
There is nothing like a dog which is always happy to see one no matter what the circumstances. A dog waits for one to come home. A dog excels in unconditional love.
Thus, there is nothing like a dog to elevate one from a feeling of loneliness.
Loneliness can be very debilitating in itself.
In fact, versus spending time with other humans where one has to be on a higher stress alert, one is much more at ease with one’s dog.
This experience is also excellent for all children and it is especially excellent therapy for children that are challenged emotionally and with problems such as Autism etc.
And, for adults suffering from emotional and mental problems such as dementia, PTSD etc, the time spent with a dog is quite a lifting experience
There is a reason leading hospitals such as The Cleveland Clinic provides emotional support dogs 24 hours a day for their patients in the hospital and waiting areas.
Physical Health Benefits
There is nothing like a dog for increasing one’s physical activity. Physical activity is key to maintaining one’s health. Such an increase in physical activity ranges from the day to day activity of petting and feeding a dog, to more strenuous activities.
Walking is a key activity that comes with dog ownership. A good dog owner feels compelled to take a dog for a daily walk, rationalizing that it is good for the dog. However, in reality, the dog is taking the owner for a walk.
Further up the exercise spectrum, many owners take their dog for a jog.
Others take them for a run.
And many even take them to follow along on a bicycle ride.
Studies have shown that pet owners are four times more active than non-pet owners!
For those in the Ketogenic Diet, such exercise would be best to do before ending Intermittent Fasting.
The bottom line is that the love of their dog is compelling one to exercise the dog for its own good regardless of the collateral benefit that such does for the owner.
Dogs have evolved to offer much more than pure companionship. They are also used as general service dogs.
Service dogs offer a wide range of services to mankind, such as:
-seeing eye dogs
-drug intervention dogs
-military support dogs
-search and rescue dogs
-disease recognition such as with cancer
-seizure recognition in advance of an event
These advanced functions take advantage of the incredible power of the dog’s senses.
Their sense of smell is stated to be 100s of times greater than that of humans.
The power of their sense of hearing is astounding. It is said that they hear in three dimensions which is something that humans cannot comprehend.
With the huge value that a dog brings to its owner one should be dedicated to keeping his dog in the best of health mentally and physically.
Needless to say one must have a good and caring Vet to take care of one’s dog. One should be sure to obtain a schedule showing future visits and to be sure to visit when advised.
The Must-Have Supplement
Proper supplementation for one’s dog is key!
One should recognize that the standard dog foods of today are a far cry from that which the dog’s DNA of a wolf is designed.
The wolf lived on its prey. It was living on a Ketogenic Diet similar to that of the Caveman!
This was a diet of fat and meat. This is what a wolf ate when it took down its prey. It did not live on GMO corn, rice, meats from dead animals and other filler items that are the staple of most dog foods.
An ideal diet that one should give one’s dog is a Ketogenic Diet of almost exclusively of fat and protein. But due to the expense of providing raw meat for one’s dog, one must look to ideal supplementation as dogs are still carnivorous animals. Although there have been claims that some pet foods contain some meat, most are still really unfit for even animal consumption.
The premier dog supplementation that one must GET, can be found in the Life Extension Dog Mix, 100 grams (0.22 lb. or 3.52 oz. which one should ADD TO CART while on SUPER SALE.
This provides the specifically formulated food and nutrients to keep one’s dog in optimum health.
This especially highly researched formulated supplement contains the required nutrients for the spectrum of a dog’s needs, including the following ingredients:
Carnitine is an essential nutrient biosynthesized from the amino acids lysine and methionine and found in meat. It is required for the transport of fatty acids into the mitochondria for the generation of metabolic energy and is especially important for the cardiovascular system.
Vitamin E also has been shown to be important for your dog’s health
Life Extension’s Dog Mix is at the top of the must-have products for protecting your pet’s health. Just two scoops per day provide the vitamins your pet needs to stay healthy and strong. Dog Mix contains significant amounts of high-grade nutrients usually reserved for the most expensive human supplements. It contains flavonoids, amino acids, antioxidants, probiotics, essential fatty acids, methylation enhancers and more.
In fact, many commercial pet foods do not contain the vitamins, amino acids, phytonutrients, and advanced antioxidants found in Dog Mix. Unlike most other products, Life Extension pet supplements contain the same premium-grade nutrients used in all of its products for Humans!
Antibiotics vs The Colloidal Silver Option
Dogs, as humans, are subject to being infected from time to time with bacteria and parasites which includes worms.
Furthermore, Veterinarians now warn of Chagas (Kissing Bug) Disease in your dog;
“Whether your pup stays outside or inside, all dogs are at risk for Chagas disease, a potentially fatal disease that affects the heart and other organ systems.”
Many pet owners treat such ailments with Colloidal Silver Liquid which one should get andADD TO CART.
versus using harmful antibiotics. Plus, they enjoy a huge cost savings.
Colloidal Silver is quite popular as it has no side effects on the good bacteria and organisms.
It has many of the same benefits for dogs as it does for humans.
Having enough Colloidal Silver is now quite easy to have on hand as it can be obtained either in bottle form or one can obtain a Colloidal Silver Generator which one should GET andADD TO CART to make Colloidal Silver at home for both oneself and one’s Best Friend.

As many owners would not take anything for their dogs, a very large number of owners are now giving their dogs Carbon 60 on a daily basis. This is based on doubling or tripling the life of their dog plus providing their dogs with increased healthy longevity.
This likelihood was indicated in the famous rat study wherein C60 rats had their lives extended by two and three times that of normal rats.
Such owners are planning to have their pets still with them for up to dog ages of 30 to 45 years.
To increase one’s pet’s life, health and well being, one should buy Carbon 60 Olive Oil 90 Milligram/100 Milliliter Organic 99.95 Solvent-Free C60oo Lipofullerene – By GoodAndCheapC60oo.com and administer in an amount of 1 teaspoon per 100 dog lbs per day.

Neutering and Spaying
Regarding Neutering, this is a big thing to do especially in the US vs Europe and is quite controversial. Regardless, one should understand that depending on the projected weigh/size of a dog that this should not be done until the dog is fully grown. With large breed dogs, this means no sooner than 1.5 to 2 years.
Regardless, one must realize that they are taking their dog’s vital hormone supply away.
With a female dog, they are usually getting a full hysterectomy versus just having their tubes tied. Imaging giving one’s daughter a full hysterectomy at the age of 14 years thus putting her in Menopause.
At any rate before one makes this final decision, if one does nothing else, one Must Please Watch on YouTube from the beginning: Dr. Becker’s: The Truth About Spaying and Neutering.
Restraints are a key item that goes with any pet but neck restraints at a very young age can be harmful as they are pulling on the dog’s very fragile cervical vertebra. These vertebrae carry all the nerves to the dog’s body. Trauma from a neck restraint can result in severe bodily nerve damage to the dog.
Until one’s pet has a very strong neck, a harness should be used instead of a simple neck restraint, which if ever used should be when one’s dog has a strong neck. This, of course, breeds specific as to when the dog’s neck will be strong enough for a neck restraint.
A great, comfortable and unencumbering harness with a leash, available in different sizes, is
