When we post new articles or health alerts, you'll get it first. We never post fluff.

Myths, lies, half-truths and outdated dog care information --
much of it sold to us by advertisers and "experts" mostly interested in profit-making or maintaining the status quo -- determine what your dog eats and even what vaccinations and "pet meds" he or she gets.
Too often, it's not about informed consent and science. It's about money.

It doesn't have to be that way.  I'll help you make informed choices the fun, easy way without your having to make dog care your full-time job. (All my book royalties benefit animal causes.)

Are You Unknowingly Damaging
Your Dog's Health?

 

Hi. I'm
Jan Rasmusen. That's me here with my two Maltese, Jiggy (left) and Chiclet (right). Six years ago I gave my two “furry kids” the very best care possible--or so I thought. They ate a top brand of “natural” pet food,  Dog Care Expert Jan Rasmusen with her Maltese, Jiggy and Chicletwere “up-to-date” on their shots and always protected with monthly heartworm and flea meds. Not for one moment did I suspect that my good intentions were actually shortening my dogs' lives.  
  
I awoke to the truth when Jiggy contracted a life-threatening autoimmune liver disease. Two years of research into his illness, and the shocking realization of all the harm my "care" had caused, made me so angry I decided to share my findings in a very different kind of dog care book. I wanted that book to be unbiased, independent of special interests, but also so much fun that people might actually read it. I called it Scared Poopless: The Straight Scoop on Dog Care -- not your average title and not your average dog care book.  It's narrated by my little Chiclet, an opinionated four-pound Maltese with a wicked sense of humor and a burning desire to set humans straight.
 
Best Dog Care Book: Scared Poopless
Whether you have a healthy new pup, an ailing old canine friend or something in-between, this book will open your eyes to the truth about dog care and improve your dog's chances of staying (or getting) healthy and safe. If you don't absolutely love my book, return it for a full refund--no questions asked.  Keep our nutrition audio and Pet Alert decals as a thank you.

Nutrition Recordings

Scared Poopless has two info-packed chapters on how to feed your dog, but people wanting to prevent or cure disease often want to learn even more. To fill this need, I teamed with Dr. Jean Hofve, one of the top pet food and pet nutrition experts in the country.

Nutrition Recordings for Dogs and Cats

We produced three recordings:

#1: Truth, Lies & Pet Food (about selecting the safest commercial foods)
#2: Diet, Disease and Longevity (how to feed dogs and cats with health problems)
#3: From Mere Survival to Glowing Health (how to feed for optimum health)


Listen to some excerpts:

 Is "people food" bad for dogs?
Is kibble good for teeth?
What supplements should we give?
How does homemade food help?

Most Dogs Need a Lifestyle Makeover

Sadly, most of us have been misled about how to care for our dogs--mostly by people and companies trying to relieve us of money.  As a result, our dogs get too many drugs and mostly eat junk food. They have toxic lifestyles that make them sick, pile up vet bills and end their lives prematurely.

  • We expect our animals to thrive on fast food. Most pet food is overcooked and over-processed, not unlike our own "fast food" -- except that pet food often contains ingredients condemned for human consumption--like meat from dead, dying, diseased or disabled animals or pesticide-contaminated plant matter. The current melamine contamination is a symptom of the problem...but not the problem itself. Let Chiclet tell you the truth about dog food.
  • We vaccinate for the wrong things and we re-vaccinate too often. Top immunologists and every North American vet school changed their vaccination recommendations years ago ... yet outdated vaccination practices persist at most vet clinics. Tragically, over-vaccination--vaccinating too often and with the wines--can cause major disease, autoimmune dysfunction, allergies, seizures and even death. Click to learn the dangers of the rabies vaccine.
  • We give antibiotics too often and replenish good bacteria too infrequently. Chihuahua Dog
  • We fail to give important supplements every dog needs to build and maintain health because they don't come in pet food or multi-vitamin mixes.
  • We CAUSE food allergies with our feeding practices.
  • We give medications that may be toxic--even deadly. We need to learn how to easily check them out BEFORE there's a problem.
  • Countless dogs are injured or killed by easily preventable accidents.
  • Our dogs' ugly tear stains, bad breath and brown teeth are seen as cosmetic problems, not the health problems they are.
  • Our chubby dogs may be cute, but overweight dogs face grave health risks including early death, diabetes, increased joint and tendon damage, and much more.
  • We give year round meds for heartworms even though these worms require sustained warm weather to develop. (Watch for our new heartworm article on Truth4Dogs blog.)
  • We fail to understand that diarrhea coming from changing foods can be a sign that we need to change foods.

I didn't realize how much harm I was doing until Jiggy's illness forced me to reevaluate my actions and begin my research. I was doing the best I knew how to do, but it wasn't good enough.

Do you know what you need to know to avoid illness, premature death and huge vet bills? 

1. What is the safest way to clean your dog's teeth? 
2. How can you make anesthesia safer?
3. What blood tests does your dog need, and when does your dog need them?
4. Should I vaccinate or test titers

 
These questions come up all the time. The answers can change lives.

Fun with Chiclet T. Dog

Hi! I'm Chiclet, canine narrator of Scared Poopless.  I've been campaigning against processed dog food, over-vaccination and dangerous pet meds for years -- trying to get you  humans to listen. Mine is the story of how a tiny dog overcame her scandalous past as a party dog to become an award-winning author, teacher and philanthropist.

Warning: this video may be too thrilling for some of you!  Also, this video will tell you to go to another website. Don't do it. You'll just end up back here. Dogs can be tricky.

Do You Really Need Another Dog Care Book?
Is Scared Poopless That Different?


You betcha!

Scared Poopless Covers Subjects You Won't Find Elsewhere: Need a crash course in anesthesia safety or post-surgical rehab? Does your dog really need that blood test, or that surgery? Want to protect your dog if something happens to you? Our book has 20 chapters in 272 pages. Click to see the Scared Poopless TABLE OF CONTENTS or INDEX.

It's Unbiased: Most books are written from one expert's point of view. Unfortunately, expert opinions differ. Some of them have undisclosed financial motives … some stopped learning years ago ... and some have always been just plain wrong. My opinions came from years of research and interviews with the top vets in the country --v ets on the forefront of change. Where experts differ, I tell you. I had only one motive: improving the health of my own dogs. Click to see all the veterinarians we interviewed.

It's Fun to Read: No matter how good the information, it's useless if you don't read it and remember it. Click to read our book's introduction.

It's Gift Quality: The photos on this website are just a few of the 89 full-color dog photos in the book; and we saved the best for inside the book. The pages are heavy, glossy stock. It won the Ben Franklin Award for design as well as content.

It's User Friendly: Each chapter of Scared Poopless is a standalone mini-book. Read the entire book in a few sittings, peruse a chapter at bedtime or use it as a reference guide for when specific problems pop up.




The review of Scared Poopless in the American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association Journal said,
The 90 incredible photos alone are worth the price of admission, but this is much, much more than a cute picture book.”

Don't Bet Your Dog's Life On Advice From People Profiting From
Your Choices

Jiggy, a Maltese dog, jumping
My beloved Maltese Jiggy is now eight years beyond his diagnosis with immune-mediated hepatitis. I still have to keep a close eye on his health, but today he's 90% well. He's rambunctious and happy, and has been off  "prescription food," steroids and other pharmaceuticals for more than three years. My "co-author" Chiclet is healthier and happier (and more beautiful) than she's ever been before. Everyone thinks she's a puppy -- and she's nine!

At the end of the day, I know I've done everything that can be done to help both my dogs live the longest, healthiest life possible. I hope you'll let me help you and your dog do the same.
 

My very best wishes for you and your dog,
