Show Notes

• The interview with David Agius begins at: 35 minutes ~ 25 seconds

“Dogs have a biological right to be able to eat real food. It saddens me that more and more dogs aren’t able to tolerate real foods because their body is being destroyed from processed foods. We need to keep in mind that it is their biological right to be able to eat real food, and try to feed them as much of those wholesome foods as you can.” – David Agius

In today’s episode, Jo talks to canine nutritionist David Agius about how to feed your dog the foods they need for optimum health. They discuss many questions that readers asked on Facebook, and David shares his thoughts on:

  • why we should feed dogs a whole food diet instead of just packaged foods;
  • what foods to focus on and what to avoid;
  • how much to feed your dog;
  • how to get started changing their diet;
  • how to ensure it is balanced;
  • how to keep their teeth healthy;
  • how to include probiotic foods in their diet;
  • exercise for dogs, and much more.

If you have a dog in your family, or you are thinking of getting one, you will want to listen to this interview!

Jo and Fouad also have a chat in the intro, sharing what they’ve been up to the past week, including:

  • working towards a job that is your life path and something you love, not just something you do to survive;
  • Fouad’s transition back into a low-carb way of eating;
  • the benefits of temporarily getting your body into a ketogenic state and how that helps to increase energy levels, reduce pain and inflammation, and lose weight
