Is Raw Meat Healthy to Feed my Pet?

Posted by Scott Pollak on

For over 22 years we have preached feeding raw meat along with our dry kibble to your pets. Why is this? The reason is two fold... first and foremost, it's what is healthiest for your dog or cat. Take a second and a step back to think about this for a second. Domesticated dogs and cats are carnivorous animals and are closely related to wolves and wild felines... do lions gather different ingredients, send them to a factory and cook their foods? No, they hunt and eat their meat raw... so why should dogs or cats? Adding raw meat to...

Are Grain Free Diets Healthy for Dogs?

Posted by Scott Pollak on

I'm sure you have heard about the new "Grain Free" diet for your pets fad that has been sweeping the country. Before jumping on any bandwagon diet, for yourself OR your pets, it's important to understand the WHY. For over 22 years, the Viand Pet brand has stood for healthy pet food. I have never preached "Grain Free" diets, as the creation of this craze was in response to the fact that clean whole grains became too expensive (I still use it in the foods) of an ingredient, and some of the larger brands are focused on driving down costs,...

Is garlic and onions OK for my dog?

Posted by Scott Pollak on

Nearly every day clients will call or email us with questions about their pets health. A client in South Carolina recently asked me if garlic or onions were okay to give to his dog. I have no doubt that he is not alone in wondering this. At a first glance, no, garlic, onions, chocolate, etc. are all items that can be of concern, but the the size of your pet, and the strength/potency of the ingredient also play a large factor. With that being said, for over 22 years we have been using a small amount of garlic in our...

Seasonal Changes on Pets

Posted by Scott Pollak on

Winter blues? Summer highs? Fall and spring doldrums?  We’ve all experienced some sort of mood shift due to weather changes especially when it comes to extreme temperatures. When the temperature is over 90 degrees out, we feel sluggish, lethargic, and disinclined to do anything active. Similarly, in the extreme cold (below freezing), we wrap up in warm clothes, hunker down, and stay indoors if at all possible. Just like humans are affected by the changes to the weather so are your pets.  It may not be as obvious (since they don’t complain about the weather!), but the signs are there...

Posted by Scott Pollak on

  Many dog and cat owners believe the foods they feed their pets are comprehensive in nutrition enough that they don’t need to add any supplements.

Take a Holistic Approach to Pet Allergies

Posted by Scott Pollak on

In this world, we have become so attuned to treating illness and conditions with a pill or cream, but rarely get down to the root cause of the condition to fix it first. One reason is that getting down to the root cause and treating that first often takes more time than a pill or cream. We at Viand Pet wholeheartedly believe in taking care of your pet’s health from a whole-body approach, especially when it comes to pet allergies. Just like humans, some pets also suffer from seasonal and year-round allergies. One of the main symptoms of seasonal allergies...
