Supplements and Raw

I'm getting a puppy early/mid January and he'll be fed a raw diet. However I had some concerns with adding supplements. I live in an area where parvo can be pretty bad, so I wanted to add things to his diet that will help boost his immune system. (Other suggestions welcome!)

So far I have coconut oil, Wholistic Canine Complete, and I was also planning on adding some Diatomaceous Earth.

I had some concerns with the Canine Complete, it's made up of 14% crude protien, is this going to be too much protein combined with his raw diet?
Wholistic Canine Complete?

A friend also suggested adding Tumeric and buffered C, anyone have experience with those?

I followed Juliette De Bairacli Levy's plan which boosts the system. We even took one of our pups on vacation when he was 10 weeks old!

You can get them at Natural Rearing. (Not sure the prices below are correct as I have not checked in the last year.) :: Loading Website...
Here is a list of what I used and explanation:

NR Seaweed Mineral Food
Mrs. Bairacli Levy was the pioneer of the feeding of seaweed for the veterinary world. Contains only the best DEEP-SEA KELP. The mineral content of this food is improved by the addition of NETTLE, one of the most vital mineral and medicinal rich plants on land.

Also added are CLEAVERS or UVI URSI. These herbs are important aids in kidney function, overall glandular health and in particular thyroid function.
This natural food supplement promotes the general well being of All animals, including; strong and thick coat; good pigment and bone; healthy teeth; full milk supply in females and strong nerves for all.
When used daily for the pregnant female, it can give amazing results in the general improvement of the litter as well as prevent acid or failing milk and streptococcal infection. A mere pinch given daily is a proven “ Wonder Worker”
Daily Dosage: (Maintenance)
· small dog / cat- a pinch
· med. dog - 1/8 - ¼ tsp.
· large dog - ½ tsp.
For problems ( coat, pigmentation, etc.) or pregnancy, use double maintenance dosage.
100 gram…. $ 17.00
250 gram …. $ 36.50

NR Daily Health Capsules
Combines GARLIC, MOLASSES, SEAWEED, COUCH GRASS and HOPS, in a barley base. Any cat or dog confined in a kennel or home lacks these natural vegetable foods and herbs, which are essential to true and complete health. Having been skillfully blended to a unique formula, it ably demonstrates improved vitality and general well being of the animal in just a few short weeks. They are an improvement over plain garlic and are a good appetite restorer.
· small dog / cat- 1
· med. dog - 2 - 3
· large dog 4 - 5
(given daily 5 out of 7 days a week)
( If given daily, the body can become accustomed to them and some of the healing properties may be lost.)
90 capsules…. $ 16.00
360 capsules …. $ 54.50

NR Herbal Compounds
Are composed of seven ingredients of exceptional powers. GARLIC, RUE, SAGE, THYME, EUCALYPTUS, WORMWOOD with VEGETABLE CHARCOAL. These are truly the best herbs for disease prevention and cure! Juliette de Bairacli Levy has traveled the world with her dogs, living in primitive places, with complete Immunity with the use of this formula. The Herbal Compound formula is used extensively throughout her book. She states that she could not raise her own animals safely without the help of these herbs. These tablets stimulate immunity, maintain health and promote a cure in the sick. A must if you attend shows and for the in-whelp and nursing female. Use them daily for prevention, especially before and after your animals is exposed to any public place where other animals may have been.
· small dog / cat - 1- 2
· med. dog - 3- 4
· large dog - 5- 6
Given daily 5 out of 7 days a week. ( If given daily the body can become accustomed to them and some of the healing powers may be lost.)
90 capsules…. $ 17.00
360 capsules…. $ 58.50

NR Special Blend Daily Herbals
special concentrated herbal formula blended to aid digestion and to ensure your pet receives essential vitamins and minerals. Use as a daily supplement with their food. Animals love the taste, and in fact helps to stimulate the appetite of poor eaters.

Contains the following:
CARROT: Rich in vitamins A, B, and C and contains small amounts of E and K as well as phosphorus, potassium and calcium. It is particularly valuable as a digestive aid, glandular tonic, skin cleanser and eye conditioner. It is helpful in fighting infection and cleansing the nervous system, while promoting vitality and a feeling of well- being.
PARSLEY: Particularly rich in both iron and vitamin C, with an appreciable level of provitamin A. Also high in calcium, phosphorus, and manganese. It is surely one of our most concentrated food stuffs.
SUNFLOWER AND SESAME SEEDS: Highly nutritious and outstandingly rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids. They are high in protein, iron, zinc, vitamin B3 and calcium.
CORRIANDER: Noted for sweetening the breath and stimulating the digestion and appetite. It is said to be almost magical in banishing flatulence.
DILL: A calmative herb, used for many years to stimulate the appetite and settle the stomach.
ANIS: Helps to expel gas from the intestine; an antiseptic herb.
FENNEL: Tones the digestion, and relieves flatulence and other disturbances of the bowel or intestinal function.
CAROB: Juliette de Bairacli Levy has been popularizing the use of this food for dogs. When fed to puppies it has shown good results as a protection against hip dysplasia. Carob has been a source of food for animals and people for thousands of years. It is packed with mineral: calcium, phosphorus, iron, potassium, magnesium, and silicon. It contains vitamins B1; B2 and Niacin; a little vitamin A and some protein.
Dosage: a pinch - ½ tsp. daily depending on size.
100 grams…. $ 17.00
300 grams … $ 44.00

NR Tree Bark Gruel:
Contains; SLIPPERY ( red) ELM TREE BARK; OAT FLOUR; DILL; MARSHMALLOW; and added nutritious herbs. It is nature’s supreme weaning food for all animals. It soothes the animal’s stomach and entire digestive tract as it feeds. This food based on a native Indian recipe, has proved to give superiority in bone, body and temperament. The latter because of the remarkable extent to which the stomach is soothed and nerves nurtured by slippery elm bark, marshmallow and oat. It is economical to use- an average puppy requires only one teaspoon of the gruel per food. It is essential to have for any sick or convalescing animal and in any diarrhea or irritable bowel problems. Add it to the female’s food (or given with a milk meal and a little honey) just before and after whelping; and while nursing. Great to increase milk supply.

  • small dog / cat - 1 tsp.
  • med. dog - 3 tsp.
  • large dog - 5 tsp.
250 grams…. $ 32.00

I Also added Colostrum:

Good luck with your new puppy!

Awesome thank you! Just placed a few orders, Colostrum was the one I forgot about glad you mentioned it!

Do you think the Canine Complete would be safe to feed? Otherwise I'll save it for my adult dogs.
