Rodney Habib is a raw diet advocate. He has given various scientific proof about the benefits of a raw diet.
In fact, based on a study from Purdue University, he found that feeding your pet a fresh food diet can decrease their chance of having cancer by 90%.

Warning Against Rawhide Chews

Rodney also argues against rawhide chew toys for pets. In 2017, he posted a video that exposed that the chew chides are not raw.
They are processed with several chemicals that are toxic to dogs. A fact that was shocking to many pet parents.

He advises pet parents to feed their pets a grain-free diet to prevent cases of DCM in dogs. In June 2019, he compiled a review of the 13 worst dog food of the year.

This review has helped many pet parents avoid the worst products in the pet food industry. The video currently has over 840,000 views on Youtube.

First experiences are the hardest.
For pet parents, not knowing whether they could contact the CoronaVirus from their pets is terrifying.

On April 6, he had an interview with Dr. Scott Weese and Dr. Karen Becker on the most recent study. This study proves the CoronaVirus could infect cats.
Dr. Scott Wesse gave his opinion on the degree of risk of contaminating the virus from cats. He explains:
“The risk isn’t Zero. We don’t know what the risk is. But there’s some degree of risk potentially. Putting it in the grand scheme of things, that risk is probably low. And that risk from your pet is exceptionally low. The key point is; we can do some basic things to reduce that risk – social distancing.”
The video recorded 370,000 viewers.
Till date, Rodney posts updates on the study concerning pet health on his social media. He provides reliable information and has helped millions of pet parents improve their pet health and nutrition.
On several occasions, he has worked with the notable Dr. Karen Becker in educating people on pet health and nutrition.

Rodney is a pet parent who is devoted to helping pet parents make his mistake.  In 2015, he attests he would give anything to get back his dead cat, Scribbles, or Sammie’s kidneys. But until then, he says:
“I will keep learning, researching and blogging for you, the pet owner, until the day my fingers fall off. (And even then, I will learn to use my toes.)”

Still today, Rodney Habib has certainly kept his promise.

On a mission to give your dog a healthier life.
