Yesterday, in an ad on television they were
discussing Yogurt with Active cultures, and they actually used the
word probiotics! I told Joe, do you realize it has taken me 28 years
of articles, seminars, and lectures about the importance of Probiotics
for pets and humans, before it finally hit main stream media? I didn't
know whether I should laugh or cry - it sure takes a long time to
educate the public about something so critical to wellness and longevity,
for not only our pets but for ourselves.
Likewise it has been a long road since my National Bone Survey done
on developmental orthopedic disease in the mid-80's. And then the
design of Eagle Natural Pack dog food and Eagle Super Premium Large/Giant
Breed Puppy, which came out of that 6 year long survey and the several
feed trials that followed on giant breed puppies.
In 2008 all the hard work paid off and the proof was at the Great
Dane Club of America National Specialty Show. It has taken all these
years to educate one breed on the importance of high quality multiple
protein based foods with moderate protein, fat, calories and usable
minerals and microminerals, which are necessary for growth
- proper growth.
Let me share with you an amazing fact - out of over 700 Great Danes
entered at the National Specialty - 29 of those winners were Eagle
raised/fed dogs. Do you realize how many Great Danes are Eagle dogs
in order to claim 29 of the 31 winners? NO other dog food company
can every achieve this claim again. This is a once in a life time
event but it does speak to the fact that educating the public takes
a long time before the efforts come to fruition!
